Okay, has anyone been able to get this app to work on the Titan II? From what I heard, the answer is no, it won't let you choose any carrier other than AT&T.
Meanwhile, HTC customer support is pretty hit or miss. Sometimes they give me useful answers, and other times they give me answers that are unrelated to what I've asked.
The first time I contacted HTC, I asked two questions: Can you please add Straight Talk, and can you please fix the app so that it will work on the HTC Titan II?
Connection setup should work fine on the Titan II, but at this time Straight Talk is not yet a part of the database for the app. We've been made aware of the situation though, and we're currently working on getting Straight Talk added to the app's database so our customers can use their Windows Phone 7 devices on Straight Talk. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention anyway! Thanks for being a member of the HTC community Angelo, and I hope you've been enjoying your weekend!
But despite what the representative said, the Connection Setup app does not work for my Titan II. So I decide to reply and clarify what is wrong with the app. I mention the word T-Mobile once in my explanation, and this is what happens.
Thank you for your response. Please try adding an APN using these settings.
To add an APN : Tap Settings>Cellular>Add APN
Here are the settings your need for Straight Talk (T-mobile)
Name: Straight Talk
Proxy: Leave Blank
MMS Proxy: Blank
MMS Port: Blank
Anyway, my questions are:
Has anyone been able to use the Connection Settings app and choose a carrier other than AT&T?
And if not, can everyone please write to HTC here:
and ask them to fix the HTC Connection Settings app for the HTC Titan II?

Thanks for the reply, I'm not too worried about Straight Talk because at least I was told they were working on it. What worries me is that one of the reps told me that the Connection Setup app works for Titan II, when it obviously doesn't.
I'm hoping they'll fix it soon because I'll be going on vacation this summer, and taking my unlocked Titan II with me.

I just received another reply, and once again, HTC appears to be confused about what I'm asking. They think that I'm trying to use the Connection Setup app to setup APN settings for Straight Talk, but I already have the proper APN set up.
My real problem is that once they release a Straight Talk profile with working MMS, I will not be able to use it on the Titan II because the Connection Setup app won't let me choose any carrier other than AT&T or some random carrier in Taiwan.

I will send them a note and see how they reply. I would think the one's who should know are aware that the Connection App does not work with the Titan II. Hopefully it is updated soon.
I have an HTC Titan II and the Connections App does not work on it. It appears it needs to be updated to include the Titan II. Upon reading reviews for the app, there are numerous complaints and confirmations regarding this, so you may already be aware of the issue. If you happen to know a timeframe when the update will include usage for the Titan II, or if this is being worked on, a reply would be appreicated. Thankfully it is not a defect with my phone. Thank you and have a good day.

Just got my reply.
Thank you for contacting HTC. I am sorry you are having problems with your phone Michael.
I am happy to assist you, but I need some more information. What is the name of the app and where did you download (or try to download) the app from. Please reply to this email with this information, so I will be able to assist you better. Remember Michael, you can always find tips & tricks at our self help web site HTC Help Center.
Again, thank you for contacting HTC and being a big part of HTC. I wish you a great day!
I sent them this:
The name of the app is: HTC Connection Setup
It is an HTC created app, and can be downloaded from the windows marketplace on any HTC phone and from the HTC Hub.

It doesn't answer the question about the Connection Setup app. Got this from HTC:
Thank you for your reply. I apologize for the issue you have related to the Connection Setup application on your HTC Titan II from AT&T. Please let me know the current service provider you are using on your unlocked device and I will be glad to help put the proper APN settings in so you may access the data on your phone Michael. These settings can be obtained from your provider as well. To input them into your device please select Settings > Cellular > Add APN. HTC cannot guarantee the full functionality of an unlocked device on a different network, but if it is a common service provider we may be able to get the data working, however there are no setting options for MMS or picture messaging.
Thank you for choosing HTC email support Michael and I hope to hear from you soon so we can have a resolution to your issue.

Thank you for your reply. I will forward your email on your behalf to our development team for consideration in needed improvements to our Connection Setup Application. I apologize for this major inconvenience Michael and I hope it does not detract from your overall user experience. I am glad to hear you have the data working on your HTC Titan II.
Thank you for taking the time to email me about this and I hope you have a pleasant weekend Michael.

Well, I too, have just fired off a message to the HTC Support link provided farther up in the thread... Let's hope that if they hear the same thing, enough times, from enough folks, that we'll eventually get to use MMS on our unlocked Titan IIs on T-Mobile. After which, who knows? Maybe, we'll be lucky, and they'll make it possible for us to get data speeds beyond 2G (EDGE)! Or would that be asking TOO much? :P

Right right. Does anyone know (while we diligintly wait for HTC to update the Connection Setup app) if there's anything we could manually configure... possibly via the ##3282# option, to get our MMS working? I've given up on trying different T-Mobile APNs, as I've tried all the ones I know, new and old, but ##3282# has a whooooole bunch of options...

Just an update:
So I got a call from the HTC escalations department on an unrelated issue (shots come out overexposed in BurstShot mode) and I also asked the rep about the HTC Connection Setup App for the Titan II. He said that they are aware of the problem, and he has done several escalations for that problem, so corporate is aware of the issue. As to whether it was intentional or if it is to be fixed by an update, he doesn't know. That was all he could tell me.
HTC better get going and fix this and the Straight Talk problem soon. If WP8 comes out before they have a fix, I'm obviously getting a different phone. One that isn't made by HTC.
