    Default Nexus 4 on Straight Talk (AT&T SIM) getting No Service

    Hopefully you guys can help with my problem. Here's the situation:

    I had an old Centura phone with Straight Talk ($45/mo plan) for the last three months. I decided to upgrade to a Nexus 4. I went with the T-Mobile SIM because I read that I can get faster internet speeds with that over the AT&T card. I put the new SIM into my unlocked Nexus 4, transferred my number to the new SIM from my Centura, and within a few hours, everything was up and running on my Nexus. However, I discovered in the morning that I get terrible service at my workplace. I went ahead and ordered a AT&T micro SIM and it arrived last night. This morning, I removed the T-Mobile SIM from my phone, installed the AT&T SIM, and begin the number transfer service on the Straight Talk website.

    However, when I turn on my Nexus 4, I'm told that I'm not getting ANY service from AT&T. The triangle is completely empty. This doesn't make sense, because I can see an AT&T tower from my office window. I don't think it's the APN settings, because when I was installing the T-Mobile SIM, I could still get service even without entering the correct APN settings. The service bars were greyed out, but they were there--my phone was picking up the signal from the towers.

    That isn't the case now. Did I miss something? I even removed my old SIM card from my Straight Talk account, but that shouldn't do anything. The SIM card should pick up the AT&T network regardless, right? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    P.S. I went ahead the tried the settings in the stickied AT&T APN Settings thread in this sub-forum, and that didn't change anything.

    Hey guys,

    The Straight Talk guys were right. After about four hours, the transfer completed and my SIM card came to life. I thought I'd post the results in case this happens to anyone else!

    For the record any transfer will take sometime. Sucks waiting but its worth it if it will save you a ton of money.
