    Am hoping this works. I change something and I lose something. Last time I changed the apn settings I lost my internet. I can send mms but have not been able to receive.

    Thank You for your answer, do you know if this APN will work with HTC 4g Inspire? I unlocked my phone, bought a kit for Straight Talk, I'm using a Straight Talk sims card.
    I can not accuse the Internet. I've tried everything...I guess this is what I get, for trying to save money...after all you get what you pay for. Someone PLEASE HELP..

    Thank you so much! I seriously spent 40 minutes tonight on the phone with ST customer service to get my mms working, and the other day spent 2+ hours to get my internet working. Tonight I got off the phone with ST, without internet or mms. The representative told me that not all phones are compatible, which I am not arguing.. but I had this phone with ST before! I stopped using it because I upgraded, but then my phone was stolen and had to reactivate this one. Thank you so much, I was about fed up with ST and I have been with them for several years and never had this problem.

    Straight Talk
    APN: tfdata
    Port: 80
    MMSC: http://mms-tf.net
    MMS proxy: mms3.tracfone.com
    MMS port: 80
    I have AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket. I had my SIM card with straight talk for AT&T phone that worked with Internet and MMS just fine. And than I decided to get a new one with 4G LTE. I was looking for solution to make it work. I called to Straight Talk customer service to troubleshoot and had no positive result from them. I thought maybe the SIM card has a problem. I installed my wife's SIM card that she uses for iPhone5 and has no problems on her phone to receive MMS. But my phone would not get MMS. I almost decided to get a newer phone, but really didn't want to spend money and there are no phones I like better than mine for descent price.
    Than I had installed 'GoPro SMS' app, it also worked but there is to many settings.
    And that I tried the 'Hangouts' app. After settings APN you just set up your 'Hangouts' app to receive SMS (and Email if you want). That will let you download MMS ether using Hangouts' app or regular messages.
    Yay! It works on my phone now. I am glad, and hope it will help you to resolve your issue.

    This worked for my ATT unlocked skyrocket with the above apn settings. Unable to get problem resolved with straight talk customer service so I found the solution here. Wish they would get their APN settings figured out with all phones and list those not able to download photos on the ST website. Hangouts was already an app on my unlocked ATT skyrocket!

    From play store download ChompSMS. Open it, go to settings in ChompSMS, go SMS & MMS Network Settings, check boxes SMS Delivery Reports, Activate Mobile Data and if you want Group Messageing. I don't use regular Messaging only ChopmSMS and when I delete anything from inbox it automatically erases from regular Messages. This is what I use on Galaxy S2. Works fine.

    Okay folks, after trying for hours on two separate occasions, I want to inform anyone looking for the same information how I was able to convert a Samsung Galaxy S2 SGH-T989 Tmobile branded, unlocked phone to Straight Talk with data and SMS working perfectly. I tried every set up listed by others in this thread and absolutely none worked. Let me tell you what worked for me:
    I used a brand new, unlocked TMobile-branded Samsung Galaxy S2 SGH-T989 (Hercules?) ($250 on Ebay all day for a white one)
    I used a Straight Talk ATT SIM card
    I transferred the phone number from an old phone to the new phone through Straight Talk customer service on the phone. That worked perfectly.
    They gave me the information to set up my first APN, which did not work. This is what works:
    go to apn.straighttalkbyop.com. that should redirect you to HOW TO UPDATE DATA SETTINGS
    follow the directions! enter your phone number or sim card serial number (I tried both and both worked) and choose your phone type. I chose "Samsung Galaxy S (3G/4G)"
    1.Press "Menu."
    2.Select "Settings."
    3.Select "Wireless and networks."
    4.Confirm that "Flight Mode" is unchecked.
    5.Select "Mobile Networks."
    6.Confirm that "Use packet data" is checked.
    7.Select "Access Point Names."
    8.Press "Menu."
    9.Select "Reset to default."
    10.Select "Menu."
    11.Select "New APN."
    12.Please refer to the table on the left to select and enter values (Case Sensitive)
    13.Press "Menu."
    14.Select "Save."
    15.Reboot your phone.
    16.Your Internet and MMS are now configured!

    when you "reset to default", any saved APN's will be deleted. I don't believe anyone previously had mentioned turning the packet data on....
    Good luck folks, just relaying what worked for me, and I got the information directly from StraightTalk!

    I just purchased the Samsung Galaxy S3 i747 from AT&T and SIM card from straight talk. Everything works except being able to download picture messages sent to me. I also tried Dutch's settings but that was not helpful. With those settings, it would not allow me to send a picture message. The settings which straight talk gave me does not work. Anyone have a suggestion?

    I actually thought this would work as the other info on this thread didn't. I'm gonna give it over night to maybe let servers or whatever reset or update or whatever. I send mms messages just fine but cant download then for anything *sigh* yours was the best info so far

    Since I last posted my settings for an At&t SGS2 skyrocket, I now have an iPhone 4S locked to AT&T on ST. It worked great for several months with the att.mvno settings. Then on around Dec.20 my data, mms and SMS just stopped working! I downloaded the (tfdata) profile from ST website, which is the same as Squareme1's settings for you Android users. Everything works except I can't Receive mms messages.
    So, I think this is a ST issue. Android & Iphone are both affected. I have the older, "light blue" sim. My wife has the same iPhone 4S as I do, but with the newer blue sim and she has had no problems. I have ordered the newer dark blue sim to see if that would help. Is anyone having problems with the newer "Dark Blue" sim? Actually both sims are white but the cards they came are, light blue for the older one and dark blue for the newest one. Hope this explanation is not too confusing.

    Hello everyone. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on Jelly Bean 4.1.2 software. My phone is not unlocked or jailbroken. I just switched from AT&T to straight talk about 36 hours ago. Since doing so, I am able to make and receive calls, access internet and even SEND people MMS, however I cannot receive MMS nor send/receive SMS. I have tried nearly every APN setting I could find via google. I've been working at this nearly around the clock. I almost feel as if this isn't even an APN problem. Under message settings my SMSC number is +13123149810 which according to google is the AT&T number. Should it be different now that I'm on straight talk or no?

    My current APN settings are as follows
    name: straight talk
    apn: tfdata
    proxy: not set
    port: 80
    username: not set
    password: not set
    server: not set
    MMSC: http : // mms-tf . net (without spaces)
    MMS Proxy: mms3 . tracfone . com (without spaces)
    MMS Port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: none
    APN type: default,mms,supl
    APN Protocol: IPv4
    Enable/disable APN: enabled
    Bearer: Unspecified
