    EDIT; tested MMS and MMS picture msging DOES work.

    i bought the att micro sim from straight talk for my verizon note 2. my note 2 is unlocked and rooted...i found a very easy one click method that did everything for me, just cant remeber where, it was somewhere that was talking about the first guy that made it ever for the note 2 and he just made a real easy one.. but anyway
    my apn settings are
    name STRAIGHT_TALK
    APN tfdata
    mmsc http://mms-tf.net
    mms proxy mms3.tracfone.com
    mms port 80
    mcc 310
    mnc 410
    apn protocol IPv4
    Enable/Disable APN APN enabled

    make sure your Mobile Data is checked, in your Mobile networks menu. the same menu you would click your APN.
    what i did was put all these settings in. i could call and text, NO MMS. i have come to face the fact, sorry but i wont have MMS..small price to pay to save 60 dollars a month.
    i also had NO DATA.
    to change this, i went to Mobile networks menu (menu where your would click to change your APN settings) and i clicked NETWORK MODE.
    i changed it from GLOBAL....TO GSM/UMTS it gave me some prompt about not being able to search while data was active do you want to still serach i said yes,, or just let it do its thing.
    then it put up two names, which were the network operators, (it searches for availble networks to use)
    ATT was one of them.. i clicked ATT, it then said registering with ATT........ registering........ REGISTERED!
    exit out and instantly had data voice and text.. still no mms though (well to be honest i havent checked mms but i gave up on mss anyway)

    hope this helps anyone with the same problem i had... btw straight talk employees will all tell you a verizon note 2 WILL NOT work with straighttalk.... idiots...


    i get H+ data most everywhere i go, H someplaces, 3G spotty only once in a blue moon. but H+ is standard for my area here with att... from what i understand. H+ is faster than 4G but slower than 4G LTE... its stil blazing fast

    H+ is what the carriers market as 4G, so basically the same thing. Some phones display it as H+ and other show the actual 4G logo. LTE is "real" 4G, hence why it's a lot faster

    I get H+ on the current ROM but when it was stock, it showed as 4G. H+ is 4G, H is 3G. It depends on the phone and carrier though

    Does this mean that all you need to do is register a micro sim with straight talk and buy a service plan for 45$ no flashing needed ?

    I have entered in the APN's that everyone has posted and my MMS still are not working. I enter the ones on this thread and another on this forum and still nothing. Any ideas on how to get them working?

    Also my verizon note 2 continues to say sim unknown at the top after i put in my straight talk SIM. Does anybody know how to make this go away as well?

    Yes ma'am. When it comes up unknown sim. Long press it, it'll take you to setup wizard. Just force close it (nothing bad will happen, I promise.) Good Luck!
