Re: APN Settings for Verizon Note 2 on Straight Talk
Coming from the Sprint-to-Boost world so pardon any noobishness here.
I came into a Verizon Note 2 updated OTA to 4.1.2, with clean IMEI, but no vzn SIM. In preparation to try to flash it over to Boost, I rooted it with CASUAL and installed TWRP recovery, otherwise it's bone stock. Never got far trying this move because I didn't know how I was going to get around the LTE SIM requirement for Verizon notes or otherwise write an ESN in it.
NOW, I learn that Straight Talk has a CDMA BYOD kit that comes with a sim. Now, I'm just smart enough to figure out this is probably a GSM sim since they clearly state they don't support LTE phones like our Notes. SO...are you saying that you bought one of these Straight Talk SIMs, just popped it into your rooted, stock 4.1.2 Verizon Note 2, changed the APN (since popping in a non-Verizon SIM unlocks the APN settings menu) to those listed above and Voila! you got voice, MMS, and 3g data?
If so, this is my ideal solution. If not, what else did you have to do to get it working on Straight Talk? Thanks!
