    Default StraightTalk data went AWOL
    I actually have no idea what happened. I've been using StraightTalk for almost a month now on my iPhone 4 and for some reason my data just disappeared the other day. Any suggestions on getting it to work again? Or is there anyone else who lost Edge/3g?

    How much data did you use recently? Did you get a 'courtesy call' about your account?
    They do disable data on those who show excessive data use consistently.

    If you hadn't changed anything on your phone regarding your APNs, then that might be your problem.

    So I miiiight have gone a little overboard on Cydia and **********...

    Is it gone for good or just this month? Is there any way to get it back?

    You might be able to get it back via a call to CS (plea your case, don't mention using a non-Nokia phone). Or you could try waiting a couple days past your service end date and reactivate the phone to get it back.

    Yeah, that's what I meant by CS.

    Their Miami number (which has a less likelihood of getting a non-native English speaker for a rep) is 1-800-876-5753 during business hours (preferably between 10-4 Eastern time). They should be able to do something to restore data service.

    Called... They approved me to get my data back. Buuut... I needed to type some codes into my phone from the prepaid menu. Now, my iPhone doesn't have the menu in question obviously, and the StraightTalk phone is dead as a doornail (along with the SIM being cut way too small to fit back in the Nokia E71). Does it seem like I'm screwed?

    Just get a SIM card adapter for the micro Sim and it will fit right back in there. I did that when I went from my i4 back to my 3GS
