    Have you tried a battery pull? I am pretty sure the phone gets the additional APN information off the SIM card on bootup.

    Glad you got it to work. I just put att.mvno as the APN. I don't use the Connection Setup app because I don't think Tracfone is the right setting, because I can never get it to work. As a result, I can't use MMS, but at least my data works.

    I've asked HTC to add Straight Talk to their Connection Setup app a month ago and they said they would consider it. Haven't heard anything since.

    Well I wrote HTC Technical Support and I wrote on their Facebook page.

    The link the HTC Facebook people gave me was:

    Contact HTCdev

    though that seems to be more about Android.

    Sorry about that , thought that maybe the HTC Connection Setup would work, but, I just read on XDA that the app was pulled and no longer on marketplace.

    Really somebody needs to make the Wireless Manager work for all WP7 Phone just not Samsung's or Microsoft should just intergrate into the OS itself.

    I'm interested in getting a Titan on Net10. How has it been for any of you that have already had it running on ST/N10 for a while now?

    I had an LG Quantum on ST but couldn't edit the MMS settings. Now I have a Venue Pro which allows MMS server editing when in engineer mode. I gave up wi-fi tethering leaving the LG, but it was a good trade-off.

    I have a Titan 2 and just got Straight Talk. The phone and texts are working but I can't get data. I read that you guys were able to get it. I have tried entering all the the information from Straight Talk in the APN settings, doing a battery pull but that didn't work. I also tried just entering att.mvno and leaving everything else blank and doing a battery pull, but nothing.

    Any advice? In order to do a battery pull on the Titan 2 I just remove the sim card backing. I can't actually remove the battery, but this should do the same thing.

    power off for about 30 secs, power back on. I'd say yank battery but you cant with a TII.
    I have tired that about 10 times. :mad: It is not working. It does show 4G on the top though.

    I have been putting att.mvno in the APN field and leaving all the others blank.
    The other fields are:
    User Name
    Password
    Proxy server/URL
    Proxy Port

    I initially tired filling in all the ones I could with the information from Straight Talk but that didn't work either.

    I don't have facebook. I guess I can call them for support. Hope I can get this working. This was the main reason for the switch for me. Not going to stream, but I get more service for less money.

    one thing you need to try if possible is try the SIM in another ATT phone to confirm this is an issue with data provisioning on your account and not your phone.
    Well (sorry to be posting in two threads at the same time) maybe I will create a fake facebook account if it is still not working in a few hours. It has only been activiated for 30 minutes. Thanks for the advice.

    I am all setup. I ported my number from ATT, so when my calls and texts were working, I thought data would too. This should save me about $25 a month and give me data, which I didnt have before. :)

    I ran the HTC Connection Setup app and selected Tracfone though I think that's only for MMS.

    So, to clarify...you now have data & mms working by selecting tracfone from the app and putting att.mvno as the apn, then doing a battery pull? I am going to get a Titan in a couple days & want to make sure I know exactly what to do. Thanks in advance!

    Now I have a new SIM I ported my ATT number from. I can make voice calls but no texting or data. ST is no help because they don't really support BYOD phones.

    If anyone has a Titan on ST and could provide their successfully working settings I'd really appreciate it.
    Did you get it working yet let me know I seen some one posted in here the solution we tried it and it worked

    What I found with Straight Talk, Red Pocket and H20 Wireless is that the "Consumer Cellular" setting enables data and MMS for the device. By using the server settings for Consumer Cellular, you will not have access to the Microsoft services: Bing, Marketplace and Local Scout to name just a few.

    If you would rather have the MSN services over MMS, you can go directly to the "Edit APN" section in the phone settings and enter, att.mvno and the server of 66.209.11.33 with a Proxy Port of 80. This will disable MMS, but open the correct proxy for the MSN stuff.

    Hope that helps - and PS, HTC DEV's said they aren't adding any new carriers for support to connection setup. That included any of the three.
