    MMS has always worked for me (one of the first things I tested on straight talk). I was using the same settings as OP before, but I had "APN Type" blank. I was getting about 3-5 Mbps down and 2-4 Mbps up in Reno in a place that gets ok reception according to AT&T's heat map. I added in OP's APN Type settings and I'm getting about 10-15 Mbps down and 4-7 Mbps up now, thanks!

    My first result after adding the apn type:

    I recently (around Nov 10 2013) bought a new ATT compatible microsim for my new Nexus 5. I have 3G. But I do not seem to have any 4g, even in places where sensorly shows there is a strong ATT 4g signal. How can I confirm that straight talk sent me a new sim? The model number on the blue card that contained the sim appears to be TF64PSIMC4MB

    Did you change your APN to the configuration above? The model number you listed matches what I just installed recently on my N5 and with the APN listed in this thread, I have LTE data.

    Same as above, mirrored the APN settings above and no MMS. Coming straight from Sprint and new to Straight Talk with Nexus 5.

    That's still really poor for LTE. I've only used Verizon's LTE but AT&T is supposed to be faster in most places although coverage is not as good.

    The upload speed is poor compared to Verizon in my experience but then again I'm paying about $55 less a month than I did with Verizon.

    I'm just curious, those that switched from Verizon to straight talk, were you able to successfully port your number to ST, and how long did it take? I read one poster had a difficulty, and would like to know what that would be. My wife and I are looking to switch from Verizon to ST to save us money in the long run, but we'll be paying that ETF in order to port our numbers and cancel our service. Thx in advance for the help!

    I remember last year when I was porting from vz to st it was really painless. The whole procedure took no more than 10 minutes. This was all done on the website, no cs call. YMMV

    Thx for the response! By any chance, are you using the Nexus 5 on ST, if not, what device? I'm looking to get the N5 when switching from Verizon and my Galaxy Nexus, and I've been reading that some people have been having s difficult time getting LTE and MMS to work with ST.

    Edit: so I went back in the thread and saw that you're using the N5 on ST (not stalking...lol!). Are you still having good LTE reception with your device, and is your MMS working properly?

    Yup activated it for the n4, then one year later pop the same sim in the n5. Lte works fine albeit a bit slow in my area.

    I text alot but have not sent an mms so I can't say.

    When I left vz last year, it was a breath of fresh air. Slight learning curve with gsm, sims, apns etc. Save so much money!

    Honestly i didn't notice until I used the moto x. So you should be fine. Its not that the nexus 5 has bad call quality. Its just that the moto x is extremely good.

    We got the nexus 5 a few days ago and had apn issues as well...first straight talk rep gave us wrong setting...the old ATT and Cingular settings..called back and got someone else and it went right in and up but she must have done something with our permissions as she gave me these settings which had tried and faiIed.

    Hi, since AT&T offer LTE speeds, but T-Mobile does not, how do you distinguish which sim card you have. I ordered an AT&T micro sim card online from StraightTalk but it does not identify itself as being the one from AT&T which I obviously would like. Thanks.

    How long should it take for changes to take effect? I have had my phone activated for about a day and I have bounced back and forth between APNs in an effort to get a successful connection. I do not think there is 4G coverage where I am. Do I need to select a lower band or will the phone do it automatically? I couldn't access the Internet on data no matter what I tried today, but I think MMS is working. I can make calls. Any ideas? I just get an R next to my signal bar, sometimes an E if I fiddle with Network operators. Does this mean it's working and there's just no coverage? Or does it mean I really have a connection issue?

    Check out Solavei. They use Tmobile's towers. $50 unlimited everything and 5gb of data. Works great w/ LTE on my lady's N4. That's the plan I'd use if I didn't find the $30 Tmobile plan w/ only 100 mins talk sufficient. AC member runtmms hooked us up with a free sim , too (she gets a little break for signing folks up). Just PM her.
