    Proxy is incorrect. Should be:

    proxy.mvno.tracfone.com

    Leaving the proxy field blank also works (better for me)

    the phones supports HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100 / 800 3G networks, and with the right APN it should have 3G with ST right? is there anything else i need to configure? they have an at&t tower 2 block away from me....

    You might be connected to a T-mobile tower or the AT&T 1900mhz signal is poor.

    Switch your network mode to 3G. Unless your phone is a TMO phone..

    A better choice would be to use Automatic.

    proxy.mvno.tracfone.com IS 66.209.11.33. (That's the address it resolves to.) Using the numerical address just makes it a little faster (no DNS required).

    I have the HD7s and I can't get the MMS to work. I have internet though.

    My APN setting options are:
    APN
    User Name
    Password
    Proxy Server/URL
    Proxy Port

    I do not have any of the MMS options like I had on my HTC Inspire 4G or Samsung Captivate. What do I need to type into those fields in order for this to work?

    I noticed that, too. Wonder why they spec'ed the DNS name for one entry and the IP for the other. I can come up with reasons why they'd use either (speed vs. failover through DNS), but both in the same APN? Android caches DNS entries just like Linux, right?

    I haven't looked at the source, but I assume that it does. Maybe a "customer service rep" came up with the idea.

    PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY BEFORE RESPONDING.I HAVE CONTACTED STRAIGHT TALK 5 TIMES WITH NO SUCCESS...
    have a problem and it sounds like i am not alone.Im using a Palm Centro smart phone previously used by Att/Cingular with the sim provided through Straight Talk Wireless.I have went over my APN settings and they are to a t configured the way Straight Talk told me to..I can access the internet just fine and i can send standard text text messages and recieve them and post text to my Facebook via 32665 (fbook) but i can not send nor receive any pictures in any form and I can not download any media.It is really erking me.I have searched the specs on the Palm Centro and everything looks great..I do not think there is something wrong with my phone since i hear so many people complaining about the same thing being not getting or recieving MMS messages.When I talked to straight talk earier they said my sim was not activated and I said Bull since I have been talking on it and in only 2 weeks in the month so I said screw it since if i gave him my sim number it would maybe disactivate the sim and let me tell you since I have been through it ONCE YOU DISACTIVATE A BYOP (BRING YOUR OWN PHONE)SIM IT CAN NOT BE REACTIVATED AND YOU HAVE TO ORDER A NEW ONE TRUST ME I HAVE BEEN TROUGH IT ..CAN ANYONE SUGGEST A FIX TO THIS I KNOW ITS NOT JUST ME(sorry copyed and pasted)
