Re: using HTC inspire with straight talk SIM card but phone has no internet or MMS
The easiest way to setup the Inspire is to download an app called Tweakker from the Play store while on a WiFi connection and run the app. It will install all the correct apn settings for you. After that everything will work. As for the E at the top, that indicates that you are are on Edge network or 2g. You may have poor coverage where you are. This is all assuming you are using an Att sim and not a T-Mobile.
Zmk76 is correct, the E is Edge, this happens either as Zmk76 suggested, other scenario would be OP is using an unlock AT&T phone with ST TMO sim card. There's no mention which sim card OP is using. Tweakker APN app, last time I check while back only works up to Gingerbread unless its been updated. Also it takes a little longer for ST to provision the sim for data, mms is data. Voice and text works right away. Good luck and hope you find ST is right for you.
I called straight talk and they sent me a replacement Sim. Im starting to think that the Sim is for Tmobile because I just went ahead and added the Tmobile apn and the phone now is getting mms but the internet still has the E. So i'm thinking that they sent me a Tmobile Sim which is not what I need so I will have to call them to get the right one sent unless they can do something over the phone to fix it which I doubt
