    APN's for Samsung Captivate Glide with Straight talk at&t

    Help!
    I can talk, text, internet, but no picture texting. From what I am reading there are a lot of people with this problem with straight talk. Anyone find the right settings?

    Thanks

    Don't waste time with Straight Talk Reps Sara

    It will cause you hours and hours of frustrations and then they tell you to try your sims in a different phone. Likeour everyone has a spare. They they tell you virtually that a bring your own phone really isn't supported. I had features I am sure straight talk turned off because they aren't there and then just vanish.

    Still no luck with settings. When I send or receive a text it often says it failed, but several times when I resent it the receiver tells me that they received the message twice. I've also received a message the same message 5 - 9 times when the sender only sent it once. But no picture messaging either way. Have to mention though, I had NET10 for 3 months and the first two ran out of data within 10 days, 3rd month a bit longer. With straight talk, not even close t running out and I know I used my data much more. So it seems they all have their issues. I guess that is the price you pay for saving over a contract plan.

    Can you give me the settings you are using please? At least I could receive picture messages. If I ever get the right settings for sending picture texts, I'll surely post it!

    You know I had issues when I first got the phone.... nothing from straight worked. I kept callimg and low and behold everything worked. I had a t-mobil card. They are currently six buks at walmart and it cost nothing to switch sims. The t-mobil service here is awful...so i switched to at&t. That is when my problems started over. Then I got a tech who ended up showing me how to make many of my pictures vanish. They were the first six months of my grandson's life. Anyway if t-mobil has good service there I can give you the apn and tell you how to set it up.

    The t-mobil/straight talk card after you pester ST works great...if the service is good there. I could send settings. It is only $6 and cost nothing to switch sims. To have service that was any good here I had to get AT&T. The only thing the techs did was help erase some of my photos. (First 6 months of my grandson's like). That is my current project recovering them.

    T-mobile does not work well in our area, very spotty. I've called ST several times, they say it is my phone, which is bologna because I have sent and received picture messages when it was NET10, very few times, but it did work occasionally. And with ST I've sent pics a few times that it worked, but have never received them. I think this is how they can sell a plan lower than AT&T or verizon contract, they don't allow usage of all the features, than blame your phone. Verizon is still best coverage in our area, but saving $30-$40 a month over contract plan we had, but of course, no picture messaging. I'll have to try the Samsung mega lte apns a try.

    So somehow they got you to delete your pictures without your knowing? That stinks! Totally inept support.
