Straight Talk just finished porting over my number from boost a few minutes ago. Incoming/outgoing calls work fine. The problem is (No DATA, not able to receive text, both outgoing/incoming MMS not working.. Funny, while on WIFI i can only send/receive text and MMS from my sister. She's on verizon iphone 4s. Now my other female friend that's on verizon, has the tablet----can only receive my texts, but i can't receive her's at the time or others on my contacts. The only way im able to access the APN on my iphone 4s is by installing a T-mobile sim card cut to fit the tray..
Can the great members of this forums help me correct this problem im having?
Thanks maestroteague! Just spoke with Straight Talk 3 minutes ago.. I was told in order for my DATA to work i will need to unlock my iphone and work on the APN.. About the texing. She told me to turn off my phone while she was working on the system. Right after the rep finished i was told to turn on the phone that my text should start working! Nothing yet till now!
On the phone with Straight Talk as i type.. I also called at&t 3 times tonight asking to help me unlock the iphone 4s.
http://www.unlockit.co.nz/unlockit/ on your iphone and set the apn from there ... to get mms working google "straight talk iphone wiki" and the instructions will be there
Okay. I just got off the phone with att. I told them i was traveling in the next 2 weeks and needed the the iphone 4s unlocked for use on another provider while traveling.. The rep asked if i paid full price... i answered "yes" the request took about 5 minutes right after the rep asked for the IMEI number. I was told to fax over the receipt of purchase in the next 48 hours or else a new claim will have to be generated again by at&t.. This phone was purchased from a howardforum member 1 week ago.
I was on the phone with Straight talk for an hour today trying to fix the incoming SMS. The only text i can receive is from Straight talk themselves. I was given a Straight talk number for me to test SMS 972-415-3719. a service tech replied right after i sent my SMS text.
