    So... I've put one of my Lumia 900s on Straight Talk, however when I followed their settings guide data and mms worked, but all of my live ID and Bing features did not. I tinkered myself and researched and then deleted the proxy address and proxy port # I'd had in under internet apn in the network settings app. That seemed to get all my Bing and Live ID features to work, however now mms is non-functional. I did not disturb the mms settings, so I'm unsure as to why my picture messaging is no longer working. Any help would be appreciated. I'm having a hard time searching on here, but love the community's feedback

    Wow thank you so much. Everything is working perfectly now. I was beginning to think I'd have to go back Android or iPhone... I can make an exception with losing my phone as a WiFi hotspot ( and that's huge for me) but losing the marketplace, all windows features, and mms is just not right. Lol. I use my phone for a variety of things, and now that I know I can successfully switch from AT&T without losing mug of anything, I'll be glad to take the savings.=)

    I am having similar issues. I put all the APN data(Internet & MMS) using the "Network Setting" app into my phone. I deleted all the info from the cellular settings. I still cannot use the MMS. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Make sure your connected to wifi and have downloaded Network Setup in Marketplace
    Go to Network Setup and it will say like At&t-LTE1 (or whatever is showing is fine) hit the little plus button at bottom you are now going to manually enter everything
    Connection Name: Put whatever you want I put ST Next is Internet APN at the access point name type: att.mvno then leave everything else in this part blank scroll down to the next one which is MMS APN: mms access point name type: att.mvno next proxy address type: 66.209.11.33 proxy port: 80 leave username blank and password blank then under that is MMSC address(dont miss it it is on very bottom here and type this in : http://mmsc.cingular.com and the hit the save button on bottom...MAKE SURE YOU SAVE.......then go to your phone settings then to cellular go to add apn on bottom and trash (or delete same thing) what is there......Viola you have straight talk with mms, text, data and voice...Awesome.... if for some reason you dont just restart phone and if you did all this you will have it.

    I tried all of the apn setting deleting stuff and adding stuff. I think I've tried every single way and my data and picture messaging still will not work at all. I got the sim car after they switched to only Tmobile and I had to cut the sim card in order to fit my phone so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it.

    Dude - thank you so much! I don't know where you found this but you're a lifesaver. I made an account just to say thanks :) I spent an hour online looking for the correct settings for my lumia 900 and your post is the only one that actually works!

    I did this and everything worked, the only thing is for some reason my phone keeps saying its running off EDGE service and won't download things, run videos, or Netflix on my phone. I have a Nokia lumia 900 with the t-mobile sim card. Is there anyway to fix this problem, or am I just stuck?

    You'd need an AT&T Straight Talk SIM, but those aren't sold by Straight Talk anymore. They're on eBay but really expensive.

    OK so the new AT&T Sims for straight talk have differnet APN settings.
    And with the network setup app you cant enter MMSC: http://mms-tf.net this into the mmsc because it wont accept the (:) as a character.
    I entered tfdata and am able to send pics but not receive.Is their a fix for this?

    These are the new Straight talk apn setting BTW

    Name: Straight Talk

    APN: tfdata

    Port: 80

    MMSC: http://mms-tf.net

    MMS Proxy: mms3.tracfone.com

    MMS Port: 80
