    Default Samsung Galaxy S4: APN Straight Talk settings HELP

    Hi, so I got myself the new samsung galaxy s4 from AT&T and unlocked it. Everything is working great except for the mobile data, I can't send or receive mms and can't get on the Internet. I'm really at a loss on what to do with the APN; I did try the settings straight talk provided but that didn't work. Someone please help if you can. Thanks!

    What kind of answer is that?
    Here is how I have it set up and calls, internet, & mms are all working GREAT! The munite I put these settings in I got the 4G icon. Funny, this is completely different than the APN settings for my S3.

    My APN settings are:

    Name: straight talk
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: proxy.mvno.tracfone.com
    Port: 80
    Server: not set
    MMSC:
    MMS proxy: mms2.tracfone.com
    MMS port: 80
    MCC:310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: none
    APN type: not set

    I hope this helps....

    So weird - with those settings, neither data nor MMS works for me. If I remove the first proxy, data works, but MMS still doesn't. I can't get MMS to work no matter what I try!

    I have the same problem. I have good data and regular text works, but no MMS. I have tried numerous different APNs from across the web, but no luck. Frustrating.

    You unlocked your phone and we did not. Works great.

    new s4 unlocked from tmobile and setting do not work for me either

    If you just take the phone without unlocking it and insert the right tmobile/ att sim from straight it would work . if you had your phone illegally unlocked it will not work. I was told any phone made after January 2013 is supposed to be (legally) unlockable. I am not positive if this is maybe why you are having problems but makes since.

    Hello

    Did you figure out the problem? I have the same issue also... I have data, text and calling but MMS is not working. I've tried numerous APN settings but nothing helps...

    Please let me know. Thanks

    Still no luck. I basically gave up and will have to use Skype or Facebook to send MMS. I bought my phone online, unlocked, and not tied to a specific carrier. Works great with my current ST sim from my old iPhone 4 (which DID have MMS). Hopefully someone will figure this out.

    So here is the little trick I happened to stumble across reading a few threads about people having Straight Talk ATT APN issues.

    The Magic Key:
    YOU MUST EDIT THE ORIGINAL DEFAULT APN YOUR PHONE GIVES YOU. Editing or making the original default APN correct is the key.

    Why this is??? I have no idea... However I can tell you that Straight Talk really doesn't care or have the motivation to fix this due to them not really wanting us on ATT anymore anyway. I believe somehow the phones are holding what they have in the default as the only APN that works no matter what second, third, forth, etc....APN you select.


    Tmobile Samsung Galaxy S3(JB 4.1.2) - I spent all of about 2 minutes editing my Unlocked Tmobile Galaxy S3's default APN it gave me. Mine worked perfect in 2 minutes because Samsung allows this.

    Tmobile Optimus L9(JB 4.1.2) - I spent just about all weekend slamming my head against the wall on my wife's Unlocked Tmobile Optimus L9. In the infinite wisdom of LG they decided to be cute and lock down the default APN setting from being editable. I tried every secondary APN settings on the net I could find. None worked. She did have internet, just no MMS.(Her default APN was partially correct which is why I think she had internet only.) So I had to friggen go as far as rooting her phone and editing the apns-conf.xml file located in the \system\etc folder with the proper settings shown below. Doing this corrects the default APN the phones sees for what sim card is in it. For tracphone on hers I believe it comes up under "Media Net" for whatever reason.

    Once you do the edit I have listed above, reboot the phone. Add in a temp fake second APN, then get back to the main APN screen. Once you are there hit the menu button and select reset to default. Magically the new edit you did to the apns-conf.xml file will show with your Straight Talk edits. After that everything will work!

    Even if you deleted out the original default APN the above step of reset to default will bring back the original one so you can edit for say on a Samsung S3. Remember editing or making the original default APN correct is the key.


    APN settings that work:

    Name : Straight Talk
    APN : att.mvno
    Proxy : Left Blank
    Port : Left Blank
    User name : Left Blank
    Password : Left Blank
    Server : Left Blank
    MMSC :
    MMS proxy : 66.209.11.33
    MMS port : 80
    MCC : 310
    MNC : 410
    Authentication type : Left Blank
    APN type : default,supl,mms
    APN protocol : IPv4

    Enjoy!

    There doesn't seem to be a way to edit the ATT Apn. I am rooted and have copied the apns-conf.xml file out, edited it and put it back and there is still the ATT APN there and no changes can be made to it. I even removed that file, restarted and still the same ATT un-editable APN. I am stumped as to where this APN is?

    I think you might have missed this step:

    Once you do the edit I have listed above, reboot the phone. Add in a temp fake second APN, then get back to the main APN screen. Once you are there hit the menu button and select reset to default. Magically the new edit you did to the apns-conf.xml file will show with your Straight Talk edits. After that everything will work!

    If you fixed up the apns-conf.xml file once you do the above step it will edit the default apn listed. You still will not be able to actively change it inside the android gui, however since you edited it at the file level you should be fine.

    Those settings did not work with my unlocked I9500 with Net10 AT&T sim. No internet or MMS. After many many many attempts I finally got it to work with these settings.

    Name: Net10
    APN: tfdata
    Proxy: wireless.cingular.com
    Port: 80
    Server: cingulargprs.com
    MMSC:
    MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.32
    MMS Port: 80

    So this is what I was using for about a month. Worked great on my galaxy S4

    Name: Straight Talk
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: Not set
    Port: Not set
    Username: Not set
    Password: Not set
    Server: Not set
    MMSC:
    MMSC proxy: 66.209.11.33
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication Type: Not set
    APN type: default,supl,mms,hipri
    APN protocol: IPv4
    APN enable/disable: APN enabled
    Bearer: Unspecified

    But now my data and mms quit.

    I got the data working again using these settings:

    NAME Straight Talk
    APN tfdata
    PORT 80
    APN type: default,supl,mms,hipri
    APN protocol: IPv4
    APN enable/disable: APN enabled
    Bearer: Unspecified

    Nothing i try works for mms. I can send but not receive.

    I'm considering getting the Galaxy S4 and using straight talk. I'm not as computer savy as you but you said it works for you? Did you get your phone unlocked? I'm afraid of purchasing the phone and not being able to use it. Can you tell me exactly what I need to buy to make it work? I know it has to be an ATT phone. Thank you!

    Ok. I spent 40 mi uses on the phone with straight Talk today. The 'support specialist' simply could not understand that my battery is not removable. Using a combination of the above suggestions I have gotten my data back but still no mms. Very frustrating. I'll be visiting To Mobile tomorrow even though they don't have the best coverage where I live.

    Yes I am using an att galaxy s4 on straighttalk. It works great. My only issue now is the day after I cancelled my contract I jad to enter new apn settings. It may be a coincidence, either way, I got everything to work except mms. Mms is picture and video messages. I looked for about 4 days and I may need to get a new sim card to get it to work.

    Thank you. It sounds like it would be to much for me to figure out. Did you get your phone unlocked? The woman I spoke to from straight talk told me it had to be ATT compatible and unlocked. This is all foreign to me and am really afraid to spend the money on a phone that I won't be able to use everything (MMS). I have month to month with Verizon and love the coverage. I know that T-Mobile and Sprint doesn't work in my area. I see that straight talk has the Galaxy s3 and am considering that as well...but really want the S4. Ugh!! Thanks again for your input.

    I did not have to unlock my phone to use the straight talk byop att sim. I bought an att phone. All you need to know are the right apn settings. I am buying a new sim and will try to get everything working today. The s4 is really nice. Straittalk is ending their mvno from att so im not sure where that will leave us. Their s3 is on sprints network.
