I would recommend you to create a new apn settings rather than editing your existing settings. So that you get two apn settings and can easily switch between them. There is also another working starttalk byop apn setting for GSM phones which is listed below.

How to configure Straight Talk APN Settings for BYOP ?

If the above settings didn’t worked for you then you could also directly ask Straight Talk to send you the new apn settings. Goto: and provide your phone number or last 15 digits of SIM card and your phone model. You will receive the settings which is required for you specific phone.

By the after receiving the settings or making the new apn settings make sure that you select that as your default apn settings so that your phone use that apn settings to connect to internet. :)

    • Virgin mobile works on Verizon towers, and is a good price. Straighttalk can run on Verizon or ATT, depending on your phone.. But the customer service at Straighttalk SUCKS!! 5 hours and 3 days to get my last BYOPhone turned on,, Service is awesome, price is the best around,, but the customer service is overseas, and it just SUCKS!! I have my whole family on Straight talk… You can BYOPhone to Net 10, and they are good also.. try calling them.

        Actually, Virgin Mobile runs on Sprint’s towers. I used to use them (up until I started using ST last Feb) , and my wife still does.

    Yes, I bought the STBYOP pack for CMDA phones. No luck with instructions from the box. Went to the website, enter cell IMEI and whatever else it asked for. Response = Your phone is not supported. #BullS!#T GN2 = Unlocked World phone
    Went back to the kit, found T-Moble sim, trimmed/cutoff the excess plastic. Easy enough with Swiss Army knife.
    Replaced VZW sim with T-Mobile sim. Reboot. Waited a little for network activation and synch.
    !!Had to get around my Avast Anti-Theft software. Unlock / Found the phone the Trust new sim.
    !!Google how to get rid of "Non Verizon Sim found" icon in notification area.
    BAM! Up n running. No thanks to STBYOP customer support. Don't even think to get help from them. They will not think out-the-box to help you get right.
    Big Up!!!

  4. I just transfer to straight talk i have a t mobile samsung galaxy exhibit 4g with a att sim card i am unable to recieve pic message i have tried several apn i am pleased with everything else need help

  5. I need apn settings for the alcatel one touch fierce t mobile phone for straight talk service

  6. I have not been able to receive pictures on my text messages since I changed to Straight Talk!

  7. don’t listen to triniman06… wiped my apn out and now im worse off than what I started

  8. I bought an unlocked HTC ONE. Straight talk said any unlocked phone would work. It works great other than not being able to send or receive mms. Tried every apn configuration possible and nothing works. straight talk use to be great now they don’t act like they want to help. I don’t want to have to buy one of their phones cause the last time I did they set it up for sprint towers instead of at&t. if anyone can help that would be awesome.

  9. I had a problem with st receiving mms. One day spent an hour and a half with customer service and they said I would have to calk back tomorrow! Called back the next day and spent over an hour on the phone and they finally said there was nothing else they could do disappointed I asked to talk to a manager and he said that there wasn’t anything else they could do I told him that st website said my phone was compatible and he said it was, I said how can you say that I’m not getting my mms! He said the phone calls work, text work and the internet works and I said how can you say text works when I can get mms. He said well it says not all services may not be available! I voiced that I was upset because I ported my number and canceled my service with AT&T. They have me 15 more days of service but I said that still didn’t make up for the loss of service
    . After doing some research I found and app called handcent and downloaded it and my mms now works so I thought if I deleted it, my mms would still work but it didn’t so I downloaded it again and it works again, don’t know why or how but it does!

  10. I bought cubot one and how do you activate it with straight talk use sin card from previous straight talk phone
