Re: Network speed is averaging .04 mbps
I was once on Net10 (essentially Straight Talk), had nothing but issues... slow data speeds, inconsistent service, inability to send MMS (or receive, I can't remember which), but then I switched to Go Phone, it was excellent but pricey for the service (~$65/month), but switched then to Aio Wireless for $45/month on auto refill for unlimited talk, text, and 2.5GB of high speed data. I have since gotten a few people I work with to switch from Straight Talk to Aio, and they can't believe the difference in service they get for the same money... It is on AT&T's network though, not T-Mobile. Honestly, I haven't heard anyone have a good story about ST lately.

But back to your original problem, this sounds like either a SIM or APN issue, you could have a bad SIM, incorrect APN information, or an incorrectly configured account with Straight Talk (pray this is not the issue, it seems very tough for them to "fix" something)...
If you use something like Network Signal Info, what kind of network type does it show you have when on mobile data... Edge, HSPA, HSPA+ or something else? When network is active it should show something like "(DC)HSPA+ * 42.2Mbps", when data is inactive it should show something like "HSPA * 14.4 Mbps", and if you are only in Edge mode, it will show something like "EDGE * 220 kbps".
