    OMG!!! thank you so much for posting this for the public. I have been going about 1.5 months without internet on my phone without wifi and was driving me crazy. decided I would research and see if I could do something in the settings to get it to work and it did after inserting the information!!! I am so excited right now!!!!

  2. Jared

    I got it to work. Thanks. However, it did say that APN type “dun” was not supported by this carrier. So I simply removed it and it worked.

    I spent two hours on the phone last week with the bring your own phone and switch to straight talk and all I have is data usage. I can not make calls or receive calls or send text messages. This site confirms that they have me the wrong apn settings. And wiped the phone so I can not find it or add my old service and apn settings to restore it. Thanks Customer service.

    MMS worked with your settings but I only get 3g so I changed the app to tracfone.Vzwentp

    This killed me but gave me 4g speeds up to 30mbs from 2mbs

  7. Kevin

    The word App is suppose to be apn
    The word me is suppose to be mms

  8. Dorothy Ruggiero

    These settings gave me 3g speed, not 4g and also still no MMS

  9. Dorothy

    Ok, I got 4G data working but cannot send MMS.

  10. Trever

    I have called Straight Talk several times. I have data and can send/receive text, but cannot do the same for MMS. Has anyone found a solution to this?

    • Monica Stringer

      Were you able to figure it out?

  11. Monica Stringer

    I have been on the phone with straight talk and still not able to receive MMS messages, so frustrated, what else can I do besides download another app, that is suppose to solve the issue but doesn’t. I thought this was suppose to be easy

  12. Scott WOLFE

    This page is a life save! Thank you! Moved from Verizon to straight talk and what a pain. but now it all works!

  13. Nicole

    Straight Talk tech support told me to use tracfone.Vzwentp
    That gave me 4G, but I could not send MMS.

    The APN info. listed here only gives me 3G, but I can send MMS.

    What can I use so that I have 4G and MMS ability?
