    The titan2 with the at&t 4G bands is running at&t firmware. The firmware is what determines exclusivity. I am sure that at&t has (roaming) agreements that can enable services on other compatible networks. I'm sure the only reason apn settings are available is to support these features.

    I checked straight talk email settings. They exist not sure how reliable they are.

    Because the original titan exhibited similar behavior its a simple (maybe wrong) assumption.

    the firmware does not determine or guarnatee exclusivity with a certain provider. It just provides proprietary enhancements for the carrier who requested it. It certainly has nothing to do with the APN settings. HTC is at fault for not providing the APN settings....and the amount of time it has taken them to provide this update is beyond ridiculous....it shows they aren't working on it at all. If they provided a registry edit facility like LG or Dell we could just do this ourselves.

    I have a difficult time understanding HTC's motivation for making the at&t version of the titan2 so difficult to use on other carriers. I've read, the titan2 fixed h/w issues with the original titan design and added 4G, and a better camera. Are you thinking no updates at all? No tango update, no 7.8, etc.

    The dell phone you mentioned is unlocked and unbranded. I owned the LG e900 (Vodafone) unlocked and i received all the updates: mango, disappearing keyboard, tethering, etc. But Microsoft did not support open market phones well. People complained that open market phones were not getting timely updates.

    If October comes and goes then i will rethink this. Titan2 was released in April right? With htc having issues i can see resources being pulled from away from any titan support/development. I do wonder why nokia phones are getting tango and no word on titan2 tango availability. I guess that leaky ftp server has been removed.

    With original titan bootloader unlocked, not too much longer for titan2. Only a few months seperate the titan and titan2

    I too have just moved to Straight Talk and am unable to get MMS of course. After the issues HTC has had getting us timely updates this will be my last HTC phone. Not worth the hassle so I'm moving on to Nokia when they come out with something compelling to replace my Titan II. I had an HD7s before this and an HTC Tilt II, plus an original Tilt before that! Sorry HTC it's just not worth it to me at this point.

    Maybe Samsung, but overall I'm looking for Nokia. Even if the MMS/connection issues remain the others will at least issue SOME updates lol!

    Connection Setup is back, but it is the same version. I uninstalled the one I had and have been trying to install the one on the marketplace but it will not install. Therefore, I can't see if anything has changed.

    Edit: Restarted phone and it installed. Nothing has changed for the Titan II. Still is a worthless piece of...

    Okay...it took me awhile to figure this out but I've got the solution and it's pretty simple; too simple in fact. It will not matter whether your devices are the Titan I or the Titan II; it's the exact same setup. If you are an AT&T user...your service comes directly from AT&T please use "AT&T". If your service is from Straight Talk with an AT&T network SIM card you will use "Consumer Cellular". They are a MVNO of AT&T. I realize there are many MVNOs that use the AT&T network but if you use Straight Talk, "Consumer Cellular" is what you want. Select it and close out. Go to Settings>>>About Phone>>>APN>>>every space is to be blank...no information...literally "blank". Close everything out, reboot your device. Once your screen is back to your Metro UI display return to Settings...and make sure everything under the APN remains blank and your mobile cellular data is on. MMS uses cellular data not wi-fi. Enjoy! I know it appears ridiculously simple...it is but not before I pulled my hair out doing it. Also remember is you're using Straight Talk or other MVNOs that will cut your service off the moment you're ten minutes late with the payment; please remember that; I fell for it the first time while troubleshooting and didn't do it again. For Titan I users...y'all know your devices can be interop/development unlocked ("rooted" in the Android universe), most of the custom ROMs include Straight Talk embedded within the HTC Connection Setup.

    Unless they have done an update over the past month, the Connection Setup App for the Titan II was not compatiable with the Titan II. It did not allow you to chose anything other than ATT.

    not only that, but since WP8 devices can configure MMS, there is a snowball's chance in **** they will ever release an update for this app. In short WP7 users are screwed.
