    Default Re: Samsung Galaxy S4 APN Straight Talk settings HELP

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 unlocked, bought from newegg unlocked. I used it for a month in Spain with a phone only micro sim from movistar, no problems, just used wifi for data. Now I am back in USA, bought straight talk micro sim (appears to be t mobile from default APN) and cannot get data/internet or MMS to work. Spent an hour on phone with straight talk tech support, they gave me two sets of APN data to try (see below). Neither worked, so they say the phone is bad.

    Tried changing some parameters with what has worked for others in this thread, and big problem right now is that any time I change the MNC to 410 from 260, when I go to save the set of APN data it gets deleted. Any suggestions? Samsung says its a straight talk problem not a phone problem, including not properly saving APN data.


    set 1

    Try changing MNC to 410

    I've been dicking around with this phone for over an hour now, thanks for all of these suggestions y'all! Finally online and able to send MMS with an unlocked S4 octo-core on ST, this finally works for me - the "NAME" field appears to be just for reference, too. Just try using those settings and change your MNC - hopefully yours will work too.

    Default Re: Samsung Galaxy S4 APN Straight Talk settings HELP

    Hi all, I'm looking now on Ebay to purchase a Galaxy S4 to put on Straight Talk. I'm interested in the LTE that Straight Talk now offers with AT&T. I'm new to Straight Talk so just doing all the research now and trying to learn.

    I was advised to just look for the AT&T Galaxy S4 model number SHG-1337 and it wouldn't matter if locked or unlocked. Is this true? I just want to make sure I order the right phone and don't have these issues with getting MMS to work on it....but thankful for this thread should I end up with problems. I'm trying to do homework before I get the phone.

    Thanks for any advice.

    I purchased AT&T Branded S4 SGH-I337. Unlocking wasn't necessary. You just have to enable developer mode, and change APN Settings.

    On Android devices starting at API level 17, Android 4.2, the “Developer Options” section is not shown as one of the sections in the Settings app. To make it appear, you have to launch the Settings app, and tap on “About phone”. Inside the “About phone” section is a list item labeled “Build Number”. Tap on that selection 7 distinct times. After 3 taps, each tap shows a new toast message encouraging you to keep going (see attached screenshot). After the last tap, it shows a message saying “you are now a developer” and hey presto, the “Developer Options” will now be visible as one of the sections at the top level of Settings.

    Thanks, Greg. Been trying everything I could find online to setup my Straight Talk APN for my Verizon SCH-i545. Bought phone on eBay 2 months ago and installed Straight Talk's AT&T compatible micro sim. Was not able to receive MMS until today using your settings. The Port:8080 setting was the one that did the job for me. Thanks, again.

    I tried to reset default apn after I put the straight talk apn in but I have the AT&T version and it restored those settings as default unchanged. I have tried to remove the default AT&T settings but they don't go away. Not sure what to do now.
