HT5014 iphone 3g is unlocked but cannot change the APN to get Straight Talk MMS & Data

Most instructions Ive seen are not very helpful to get to the page to enable editing APN and other information needed to begin to get MMS & Data from Straight Talk... otherwise, phone currently makes and receives calls and will do some limited texts. AT&T advises it is an unlocked phone, however hookling to iTunes and doing a backup and restore has accomplished nothing.  Since it is backed up (several ways over a couple days), what if I go through an erase process then restore with the Straight Talk sim card

I bought an iphone 3gs from a coworker and am using straight talk sim how can i get mms and data to work on the phone The tell me it needs to be unlocked Is this correct and if so how do i unlock it

I bought an iphone 3gs from a coworker and bought a straight talk sim card for it. The phone works great but I can not get my MMS to work on the phone. I was told by Straight Talk that it would have to be unlocked first before they could help me to get the MMS feature to work on it. How do I go about unlocking the phone safely without damaging it or jailbreaking it?

Straight Talk MMS & Data fix

My Iphone 4s 16g and 4s 32g are both unlocked and have this same issue. In iOS 6 the new settings setup meeses with my ability to fix my APN settings to get my data & mms working with my straight talk sim. BUT there is a way to fix it. I dont take credit for this at all, it was sent to me on another post I had but im just going to modify it slightly.

 

 

This is thte only way to get data & MMS working on a non-jailbroken iPhone on iOS 6 as far as im aware of right now

 

 

1. Open the Notes app (or any other stock app)

 

 

2. Go to Settings General

 

 

3. Insert the T-Mobile SIM (can be brand new/unactivated OR an old one that has had service) will bring up the Cellular option

 

 

4. Go into Cellular Cellular Data Network when it shows up

 

 

5. Immediately take out the T-Mobile SIM and put the Straight Talk SIM back in while in the Cellular Data Network tab

 

 

6. Multitask between Cellular Data Network and the Notes app back and forth until a signal from Straight Talk comes in and the default non-working data & MMS APN are automatically entered. It is important to wait until the default APN settings show up

 

 

7. Once the APNs do show up, edit them manually

 

 

8. Go toggle Airplane Mode on and off, and  then turn your iphone off and then back on

 

 

Data and MMS now work fine.... UNTIL YOUR PHONE TURNS OFF OR DIES! 

 

To fix this follow these steps

 

After Step 8 and you check that your data & mms ARE working. then turn off your phone one more time and then back on againCheck that data & mms yet again. data should work but mms shouldnt.  Here is the fix; go into Settings Cellular then toggle Cellular Data off and back on and everything should be working 100000% fine now.

 

 

 

Cellular Data

APN: att.mvno

Username: *blank*

Password: *blank*

 

 

 

 

MMS

APN: att.mvno

Username: *blank*

Password: *blank*

MMSC: http://www.mmsc.cingular.com

MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.33:80

I can confirm 100% that this method works on iOS 6

Does a USA factory unlocked iphone 3gs offer all the features of a Verizon locked version for example With a non-contract plan like Straight Talk

BestBuy offers an iphone 3gs USA factory unlocked (SKU 6314408) and I would like to purchase and use a non-contract plan like Straight Talk or Net10.  Are all the access point names (APN) fields available for me to enter all the carriers data?  And if so, will I have all the features an iphone 3gs offers... like, multimedia picture messaging and internet?  Additionally, can I use icloud as I have a MacBook Air.  This would be my first iphone.

why No APN Settings on iPhone 3GS on 6.1.3

NO 3G data activation!

iPhone missing APN Settings

I recently had my iPhone (4, 16GB, GSM from AT&T) unlocked (by AT&T, and saw confirmation in iTunes).  I am now using a prepaid carrier, and needed to change my APN settings for there system, however the APN settings are not available in the phone (Settings General Network), the only option I have is Cellular Data (on/off).  I wound up using unlockit to load an APN profile for my carrier, home come if the phone is unlocked we cannot change the APN settings (something we need to do in order to use data on ohter carriers)?  AT&T unlocked the iPhone for me but all the settings still point to AT&T unless I use alternative means.

 

I did not know if I was mising something or if this feature is not enabling properly on unlocked devices, or what was happening, I was hoping maybe some other people have figured out how to make this option show, or if they have not maybe Apple or AT&T need to see that the Ulocked devices are not able to change data settigns from AT&T settings, I am not sure what is happening, but I would like to fix it (hopefully, or at least make it noted that it is a problem).

 

I have tried Reloading iOS from iTunes (recovery) and that pops up the Message Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked in iTunes, but I do not see the APN settings, I do not want to Jailbreak the iPone and I should not have to since I have it unlocked, I just want to be able to change the settings to allow other carrier data plans.

 

Thank you all,

APN Settings

I have a factory-unlocked iPhone 4G. I use a prepay service in Canada with unlimited Internet usage. The CSP is 7-11 SpeakOut, a MVNO that operates on the Rogers network. Voice and data services work fine.
I am currently in USA. I have subscribed to a pre-pay service with data. Ive replaced Canadian SIM with American SIM. American CSP is also 7-11 SpeakOut, however, in USA, SpeakOut works on the AT&T network. Voice service is working fine. Data is not. When attempting to connect to Internet, error messages advise that data services have not been activated (CSP does not offer data service) or that server cannot be reached. I have confirmed with SpeakOut USA that data service is active on my prepay service. The service bar shows the presence of 3G or (occasionally E for Edge service). iPhone shows SpeakOut as the network but it shows AT&T 9.0 as the carrier. SpeakOut customer service provided the following APN settings:
APN: wap.cingular
User Name: WAP@cingularGPRS.COM
Password: CINGULAR1
Proxy Server: left blank
Port: left blank
These settings do not result in any data connection. I get the same error messages as before.
One point of clarification, a company called Ztar is actually the CSP. 7-11 is actually a sales distribution channel for Ztars services in Canada and USA.
I suspect that the APN settings that I was given are incorrect and need to be changed. But to what ?

APN settings hidden

Hello,
I have a iPhone 3G unlocked (after two years with my telephone provider).
OS 4.2.1 (8C148), Model MB496B, Modem firmware 05.15.04.
I need to manually set the APN settings to use the Spanish MasMovil operator (APN name: internetmas),
but those settings are hidden in my iphone.
That is, I go to: Settings -> General -> Network,
and after turning Enable 3G ON,
I can only turn Cellular Data ON or OFF,
but I dont have a menu to configure the Cellular Data or APN.
A colleague told me that Apple needs to send me a program to unblock the hidden APN settings.
But I didnt find info about this in their free website support.
Any idea?
Best regards,
David

Iphone 3g loses its APN settings completely when using WiFi

What can I do?

Question about APN settings and iPhone Configuration Utility

Good morning,
I recently bought an iPhone 4 and gave my 3G (factory unlocked) to my girlfriend.
As she doesnt have a data plan, I have turned off the Cellular Data in the settings. Everything was ok until she wanted to send a MMS. Indeed, she cant send nor receive MMS with Cellular Data turned off...and theres no option in the settings to edit the APN settings.
After browsing a few forums on the subject, it seems it is possible to edit the APN settings via the iPhone Configuration Utility.
What I want is leave the cellular data ON (so that she can send and receive MMS) but enter fake APN settings in the iPhone configuration utility so that the phone cant connect to the web using cell data.
Would this work? If yes, can someone briefly explain how to do it?
Thanks in advance.

Upgrading to 3.0 what about applications data and settings and SIM-lock

The upgrade to 3.0 will be my first OS upgrade on my Iphone 3G as it came with the latest version 2.2.1 installed.
When I upgade it what will happen to my applications, settings and data. Should I expect it to survive the upgrade or will I have to reinstall applications, setup Exchange mail etc.?
I bought the phone with one carrier and had the phone officialy unlocked by that carrier and is now using it with another carrier.
Will the phone relock to the original carrier when upgrading?
Would there be any sence in setting the SIM-card from the original carrier in the phone before upgrading? The carrier which I am currently using is also an official Iphone reseller.

iPhone not letting me talk

Within the last few days, my iphone refuses to let me talk to anyone else. If they try to call me or I try to call them, it will let me speak to them (most of the time), then after a couple seconds go sucker! and hang up on me, giving me the message Call Failed.
This has happened to me before but resolved itself after i rebooted the phone. Yesterday I turned my phone off all day and when I turned it back on, it still wouldnt let me talk. Ive also tried syncing it and updating the firmware on iTunes.
Is there any way to fix this?
Thanks a lot for your help.
