    Default Samsung Galaxy S3 need help w/ APN settings for switching to Straight Talk

    I have a G S III that was originally w/ t-mobile but the customer service help said I need to use the settings if it had been with AT&T???? That doesn't make sense to of the APN settings they gave me have worked. My husband has a GS II and in places where he has full coverage I have none w/ my GS III. Also my internet is extremely SLOW and I can not send or recieve pictures either. Can someone PLEASE give me the correct APN settings and any tips to speed up my internet ? THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!

    Thanks for your response. I have tried several. All settings I have taken from the threads on here but there always seems to be some "glitch" that remains. I 'll try that one though. Do you know what actually makes the coverage better? I just don't understand why my husband has an S II & I have an sIII both with staright talk byo phone plan but side by side I have no bars & he has full coverage.

    @ wickedcontra. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! My gf was really upset, as she should have been that her phone wasn't working. A brand new unlocked GS3 from Best Buy. The settings that straight talk provided worked for about a month, and then just stopped. I've been fighting with this for almost a month now. Again, thanks.

    Hey i have all those settings in my straighttalk samsung galaxy s3. it was an att phone but i cannot get the original att settings to delete so it will work off of the straighttalk settings. any idea how to do that?

    Default Re: Samsung Galaxy S3 need help w/ APN settings for switching to Straight Talk

    you can't delete them as far as I know. Just create a new APN and make sure you save it. Then switch to it.

    Tell me do I need a regular sim card or a micro sim card. And where do I find the apn to type eveything in?
    Thank you in advance. I have a sim card that came wi th my phone do I still need to purchase another sim or a micro..
    I just checked, I have a micro sim. I have at&t but wanting to swich to straight talk. Since I already have an at&t micro do I have to purchase a different micro or a sim to go to straight talk? Sorry about all the talk just checking everything so I wont have to write back. Thank you in advance again.

    I just bought a sgs3 unlocked from fingerhut & have tried all the different APN's mentioned here and none have got me 3g or 4g. Anyone ever got an unlocked out the box sgs3 APN to work on Straight Talk? I have an at&t sgs2 I've been using on straight talk with no problems for a year now, tried the same settings under APN for s3 & doesn't work either! Anyone with any suggestions of what else I can try I'd appreciate it, I hate I can't use this phone's net or mms without wi-fi.
    Thanks all!

    After searching this site more I finally found APN settings that work & wanted to share in case anyone else runs into same prob I did! Heres the posting I found,

    southside russell
    Straight talk apn settings for at&t samsung galaxy s3
    After renewing my monthly service my internet and mms stopped working with the apn settings i previously had. I sat arguing with ST reps for a couple hours and finally i was able to get new apn settings that have fixed the internet and mms issues. The apn setting are as shown below.

    go to apn and create new apn. and enter

    Name:Straight Talk
    Apn:tfdata
    skip down to Mmsc
    Mmsc:http://mms-tf.net
    Mms proxy:mms3.tracfone.com
    Mms port:80

    leave everything else alone hit menu and save. back out and go to home and may need to restart. should be working for you now.
