    Default HTC Vivid with straight talk problems

    I have a HTC Vivid that i used when I had att...i recently decided to go to straighttalk so i bought a straighttalk phone..i couldnt make the adjustment from the vivid to the new phone. I decided to use the st sim in the htc vivid and now i cant get the internet or pictures messages. ive went to the st webpage and have changed the apn settings..however i can not get the old apn from att the delete (it has a little lock on it) i can choose to use the new apn but it still doesnt work..is my issue because of the old apn is locked or because of the sim? do i need to buy a new sim onlilne from st or should the sim i received with the phone work? please help thanks

    I am also using Straighttalk and a ATT vivid. I have the same thing and ATT APN with a padlock BUT the new APN I created for Straighttalk is set as the active one and everything works great!
    Here are the APN settings I am using:

    NAME
    Straight Talk

    APN
    att.mvno

    PROXY
    proxy.mvno.tracfone.com

    PORT
    80

    USERNAME
    leave as not set

    PASSWORD
    leave as not set

    SERVER
    leave as not set

    MMSC


    MMS proxy
    66.209.11.33

    MMS port
    80

    MMS protocol
    WAP 2.0

    MCC
    310

    MNC
    410

    Authentication Type
    leave as not set

    APN type
    leave as not set

    BEARER
    Unspecified

    When I first typed the proxy name into the phone it kept trying to spell correct it to PHone instead of Fone !!
    If you can get mms messages after this but still having trouble getting out on the web try leaving the 3rd option down in this list

    PROXY
    as not set

    Also dont forget that Straight Talk does not like video or audio streaming. That's a whole other can of worms.

    Thanks I have tried all of these options and it still will not work. Could it be that I'm using the sim that came with the straight talk phone and not a sim directly for att comparability...also there is no bearer option...

    - - - Updated - - -

    Compatable...also wanted to add that it wont let me select that apn now

    update i have to put in a proxy or it will not let me select that apn...but still cant send or receive mms..or internet

    The best thing to have done would have been unlocking the phone at AT&T or some other store AND THEN taking it to another carrier that is also GSM.

    I ordered my sim from Straight Talk as any GSM sim.

    Humm , I wonder if the sims from their phones are slightly different settings

    I had this same exact problem last week. After spending a bunch of time researching this myself I found an app called Tweakker which will set up the APN settings automatically after you choose straight talk as your carrier.

    Here are the settings I have on my nexus one right now:
    NAME:Tweakker
    APN: att.mvno
    MMSC:
    MMS proxy: 66.209.11.33
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    APN type: default,mms,*
    APN protocol: IPv4

    everything else is blank. I would still use tweakker just because the app did it in about a min.

    I have been using a Windows phones on straight talk for a couple years now, and it's soooo great to be able to send MMS like a normal person!

    Good luck!

    I had an original straight talk phone, and have used the original sim that came with it in 3 android devices thus far. One being T-Mobile, the other latest being AT&T. My Vivid even runs LTE at times, lol. Anyway settings are the same as the other guys commented. BUT, for apn, I use "default,supl,hipri,mms" . And the authentication is set as "PAP", leave "Bearer" as Unspecified. And, I noticed that did make a difference for me. Might just be me? Try it.
