    Windows phone with straight talk

    I'm having getting windows live services to work with my Nokia Lumia 710 from t-mobile. My data works and I can get on the internet but anything with windows live like Bing, Xbox Live, Marketplace Updates, Facebook Chat and anything associated with it. The only time it works is when I'm connected to WiFi. Can anybody hrlp me figure out what's wrong. Thank You.

    Its a pretty easy fix, remove the port from your apn settings. Let me know if you need any other help with you WP

    Hello, was wondering if you could help...

    I cannot get the APN settings correct on WM 7.5, using TMOBILE service from Straight Talk...

    I'm using the HTC Radar and the connection manager only detects it as a TMOBILE phone and will only use those settings (different from straight talk). So that option does not work.

    When I only enter wap.tracfone as the APN - nothing works....

    THANK YOU!

    edit the apn under the cellular settings to only say att.mvno don't put in anything else.

    as far as the Nokia connection settings app, does it allow you to configure manually? If not you may be out of luck...only two Windows Phones that I know of can get all the settings to work right, the Focus Flash and the Focus S because you can manually configure the MMS apn.

    It kinda sucks. I will have to find a homebrew app to try and fix the mms for people. I will try and find one tomorrow

    I wonder why Microsoft decided to block off the MMS settings by default? I remember setting up MMS on a ton of BlackJacks and other Windows Mobile devices when I was working for TMo's unsupported device department.

    I have an HTC Titan on Straight Talk (using the apn recommended by straight talk) and I having the same problem. I've tried the settings suggested in this thread but it doesn't correct the problem. Any other ideas? Thx.

    no solution for Titan until HTC updates the app. I'm pinging them weekly for a status update.

    I posted in another thread how you can contact them to add yourself to the affected.

    Update: I just changed my apn setting and now Bing and the other services are working. I just put att.mvno under apn and left the other fields blank. Then I turned off data and then turned it back on. That seems to have solved it.

    I have HTC titan 2 just added to straight talk and everything seems to work but the internet sharing. Has anyone been able to get this to work? If I get the phone totally unlocked will it work?
