  1. Mi iPhone 4 does not connect to wifi because if IOS7. is there anyway I can make the Internet connectivity work on my phone without having to connect to wifi?

  2. Still doesn’t work. How old is this article? Maybe these steps don’t work anymore because of the new phone updates? It says the expiration for this APN is July 2014. It is now December 2014, so maybe this does not work anymore? Anyone have any other suggestions on how to get internet on the ATT iphone 4 using Straighttalk? This has turned into a nightmare trying to get this phone to actually work completely :(
    I cant get the MMS to work either. I don’t know what else to do.

  3. I have tried all 2 and it still doesn’t work. I have been on the phone with straight talk and no one has been any help, we have tried all of them at least 10-15 times. I can get calls and texts and send them, but the data does not work

    • Caitlyn J did u ever find out how to fix the problem? I’m having same trouble on my daughters Verizon iphone5c. Everything works just can’t get her internet to work.

  4. OK I downloaded the first one after 2 factory resets thanks to straight talk lol now everything works but my picture messaging. I can’t send or receive pictures. I’m afraid of touching anything because I had such a hard time setting this up to begin with ????

  5. Thank you this worked. If your phine will not work in LTE but you turn it off and it works (although very very slow) this may be the fix for you. To check go to settings, cellular, cellular data options, turn of LTE. If you now have internet data but not with the LTE on this fix worked for me so i could use with LTE on.
