    I picked up a black 920 at Best Buy this morning at the AT&T price for a non-contract phone. They only had black. The local AT&T had black and white in stock- they said I could not buy at full price without an existing account (which I don't have).

    I ordered my ST micro-sim card last night. I hope it works smoothly. I started this thread for those who have used Straight Talk or are interested in it. I'll keep you posted. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, especially with set.up.

    Using the 920 strictly with wifi is great. :)

    It should work just fine as Straight Talk works on AT&T locked phones.

    For anyone looking for an MVNO, Net10 is the same company as Straight Talk.

    From what I've seen, Net10 is a little more lenient on data usage, and I think it's slightly cheaper at $45 a month.

    I'm using straight talk with my 920 as I type this.. Working great! Even MMS is working, which seemed hit or miss on my S3, although it works perfectly on my wife's iPhone.

    Net10 is $50/month and StraightTalk is $45/month. Net10 is $45/month with auto-renew.

    That sounds awesome, rclifton. Did you have to configure any settings for the MMS or did it work right away?

    You need to add the apn settings for internet and mms, out of the box with the straighttalk sim in you can make phone calls and that is it. Oddly enough under Cellular in settings there are seperate entries for internet and mms apn's you have to edit each.

    I am very interested in this. I want to know if you can change the apn settings or if it is not possible because it is a locked phone. Also, please let us know if you can get 4g, picture messages, and regular texts!

    Are you getting 4g? I read mixed messages about 4g and straight talk, some say it works, some say it doesn't.

    How did you get MMS working? I got the internet working by editing the internet apn, and I have 4G speeds. I just don't know what to enter for the MMS settings. Any help? Thanks a lot

    I use Net10, just upgraded from the 900 to the 920. Everything working as well as the 900 including MMS. You will see the 4G icon when on HSPA coverage, you just don't get LTE service.

    The 920's MMS apn settings ask for:
    APN:
    User Name:
    Password:
    Wap gateway:
    Wap gateway port:
    MMSC URL:
    MMSC Port:
    and Max MMS size:
    most of which are not mentioned on the straight talk website. Which is very confusing

    I use NET10 so it should be the same APN settings. My mms works after changing to this below.

    APN = att.mvno
    User name = blank
    Password = blank
    WAP gateway (URL) = 66.209.11.33
    WAP gateway port = 80
    MMSC (URL) = http://mmsc.cingular.com/
    MMSC port = 80
    Maximum MMS size = blank

    Try downloading the Nokia Network Setup app and follow the instructions at this link:

    How to set up Straight Talk MMS & Data with Nokia Network Setup app on Lumia 900 | StraightTalkWindows.com

    Too soon for the 920 instruction, but I did this with my 900 and it worked...

    Hopefully the process is the same...haven't gotten my 920 (yet)

    As far as I know, the Network setup app doesnt work on this phone. Just use my settings I posted above. They should work.

    Sorry, I misspoke it seems. When my wife got home she told me she hadn't received any of my picture messages. I'm still trying to get it to work now that I can test with my wife's phone in front of me.. I'll post back if I get it working.

    This is my first Nokia phone so I'm not sure honestly.. I can't find a speedtest app in the market place that works worth a damn and the mobile one at dslreports.com errors out because it completes to fast. For what it's worth the 4G icon is displayed in the status bar but I don't know if hspa+ is considered 4g as well as LTE. Ifthere is another way to test it let me know and I'll give it a shot.

    They price matched. I got it for $449.99 plus tax. They called the local AT&T to verify the price and that it was in stock. I was fortunate to have a gift card!��

    Remember to delete any old APN info...those APN settings may conflict/override your new APN settings...

    (old APN info should be found by going to "settings", then under the "system" column, go to "cellular", then "edit apn")

    Hope this works for you
