Just an update on what finally worked for me. I am using a Samsung Rugby Smart (SCH-i847) that was originally purchased from AT&T. I purchased an AT&T SIM from Straight Talk on Aug 11, 2013 - presumably the newer SIMs that require you to use tfdata for the APN. I used the Straight Talk settings from apn.straighttalkbyop.com. Everything worked except being able to receive MMS messages. I then installed Handcent SMS (free app) on the phone and all MMS starting working properly!
I spent hours on forums and calls with Straight Talk and no settings worked (you may see some people using att.mvno for their APN but that apparently does not work for users with the newer SIMs). Finally, installing Handcent SMS worked!
Thanks for the link! I tried several of the other posts settings, the "pre paid news" link worked for me, I have internet and mms now, only took about 2 hours! Galaxy S4 Zoom with straighttalk.
I don't know who told you about Handscent SMS but I would like to tell you THANK YOU and GOD BLESS YOU!!!!!!!!! It works. You save me maybe $200 I was thinking of buying a new phone cause nothing worked. Thanks Again:D
All those settings are outdated the new settings are on the straight talk byop site.i will post a link
So I dont have an android but a windows phone and am having the same issues with not being able to get picture messaging but i can get data any help there???
I have tried the same way you mentioned, but it doesn't help. please advise
Once you get in to the APN menu, hit the menu button and create a new APN.

I have a samsung galaxy 3 that I unlocked from Verizon to go to straight talk but I can only get Wi-Fi and it says my SIM card is not supported. I went to change my apn but there isn't anything there and it won't let me add or change anything. Anybody know what I need to do. Every thing works but the SIM card
Which APN setting do u pick once you input them both into the phone? Straight Talk Internet or Straight Talk MMS?
How did you get it to work..I am having issues with getting my appeal to connect to the internet.
Super thanks for this guys!!! I just switched over to ST. My daughter still is on ATT go plan. So far I liked the ST service but was having problems connecting to internet outside of wifi. I called customer service with ST and eventhough the guy was quite nice, he got on my nerves cause he was telling me settings that I had already had on the phone... So needless to say, while he had me "take the battery out for 1 minute" blah blah i was able to find this site and get the service working like it was intended... Oh yeah, and while I was on my "1 minute", I hung up on the guy... Fixed it all by myself (with a little help fro you guys!)
Trying this and hoping it works. I got both apn's set up. I can only use one apn setting at a time.
Didn't work for me. Idk what to do.
I have a HTC One VX It was work just fine till i put in the SIM card from straight talk now i got a black screen.
I have a samsung galaxy note 1 which I can't get the correct apn setting for my mms or internet which is on straight talk service with the AT&T compatiable sim any help ?
So how the hell do u get both to work at same time.. I've changed the settings so many times I
The internet doesn't work anymore...I've got to change back to some other settings. I put 2 settings in the apn setting don't know if they r the same as yours but I'm ready to pull my hair out! I got a AT&T huawii phone (or however it's spelled) somebody HELP
Has Anyone figured out the problem with receiving MMS messages on an AT&T Samsung Captivate Glide, Unlocked, using a Straight Talk SIM Card?? I have tried EVERY APN setting under the sun, am only allowed 1 APN setting, still Cannot receive MMS texts. Been working on this for 3 weeks now, Straight Talk keeps giving me 1 APN setting and they say it's the phone although they say the phone is Compatible and I should not be having this problem. I also waited for my monthly subscription to run out, paid and reset it this morning... STILL Nothing. They are clueless, at&t is clueless, I'm frustrated to the max and am still stuck with 2 useless phones (I bought my boyfriend the same phone and we both use Straight Talk, with the same issue) in which we can send MMS but Cannot recieve them =( TY!
What if your phone is originally from AT&T instead of cingular? I don't have the APN Protocol setting as an option
Thank you!! I had been trying for a week to get my data and mms working and nearly gave up. I went to the link at the top of this post and trouble shot the problem. I am happy to report my galaxy s 2 is now working fine.
Hey I tried that still no luck although my zte didn't have the APN protocol option also I have the new APN settings for straight talk internet should I change it back to the old one you displayed?
