    Just bought a activation kit for the phone and my internet keeps timing out. My Google app seems to work pretty good everything else seems to time out horribly or never load at all. My old straight talk branded phone ( ZTE UNICO) had no internet problems. My unlocked ZTE Nubia 5s Mini's APN settings have been set a few times according to straight talks customer service instructions. Straight talks customer service has been very poor to say the least. I don't know if the APN setting that straight talk gave me is right because every time I reboot the phone I'm am prompted a message that reads: Choose Network Model ( Please set the carrier network to making your phone can use.) By the way I selected the AT&T micro sim card form the BYOP straight talk universal activation kit. straight talk told me that it was correct. Just wondering y my internet wont work hardly at all but on my old phone no problems. straight talk told me it would and should work for zip code 40419. what service should I have for it? would verizion pre paid be any better? Please help me im so lost.

    Dial *#*#4636#*#* on the phone. You should get a few choices, one of which is Phone information or Device information. If you press that you should get a long list of things,one of which is Set preferred network type:, with a dropdown under it. Choose "LTE/GSM auto (PRL)", or as close as your phone has to that.

    If that doesn't do it, go to Straight Talk Facebook support and ask for their assistance. (The techs there are pretty good.)
