    So I activated my phone today with Straight Talk. The prepaid plan through Wal Mart. I got the APN settings good to go go but I can't send or receive pictures or get anything to download from the marketplace. I tried to do the download sdk file and go from there but when I do my phone says the file isn't supported. Please help!

    The Windows SDK goes on your computer, not your phone. It's over 1/2 gig so be patient and make sure you have a good broadband connection.

    It works, trust me. I've done it on a Focus and Omnia7. If you have a custom ROM, I 've heard it doesn't work.

    Do you have working MMS? If you do, there's a lot of people here that would like to know how you did it without mods.

    That is because the Focus S, Focus Flash, and maybe Focus 2 have the Wireless Manager which allows us manually enter apn data has needed.

    I do but I have Flash. took me a few days to get all features working..

    The Focus S, Flash, Focus 2 (?) do not need to be modded. We can edit Apn Data with Wireless Manager App.

    Orig Focus has network profile app, but you cannot edit Apn Data MMS fields with that. You have to mod like you did with yours..

    I do have working MMS and working marketplace and my phone is not unlocked or anything else.

    First you need to go to marketplace and download the wireless manager under the samsung zone.

    To do that you will need to be on Wi-Fi probably.

    Then open Wireless Manager and slide over for APN.
    WPSMOBI_APN
    Profile: others
    APN: wap.cingular.
    Auth Type: none
    Proxy Address: wireless.cingular.com
    Proxy domain: moservices.microsoft.com
    proxy port: 80

    Internet_line
    Profile Category: internet (always on)
    APN: att.mvno
    Auth Type: none
    EVERYTHING ELSE IS BLANK.

    MMS:
    Profile Category: mms
    MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    APN: att.mvno
    Auth Type: none
    Proxy Address: 66.209.11.33
    Proxy Port: 80

    Under Settings go to Cellular:
    Edit APN
    APN: att.mvno

    Everything else blank.

    I'm SO bad with phones.

    I have a Samsung Focus i917 unlocked. I can't edit the apn settings - only can enter the APN, User name, and Password.

    Is that my Straighttalk username and password?

    How do I use the Windows sdk? Is there a certain kind? Do I download it to my computer and then...?

    Ahh! I'm sorry - I am soo lost. I can't open picture messages or send them... and who knows what else since I just got it working today and don't know what else doesn't work. All these forums talk at a level way beyond my ability or understanding. And the thought of modifying and downloading stuff is a little overwhelming. Any guidance is SO appreciated!!

    Getting the all the features to work correctly on Orignal Focus i917 is somewhat tricky..texting and picture message's and getting data to work correctly. You have mod your phone slighty.

    But all the steps are laid out for you already over in this thread. If you take your time a follow the directions very closely then you should have everything working.

    Focus and StraightTalk thread ,

    post 17 contains the details if you get lost in a step then post in this thread we can help

    Windows Phone SDK download is needed

    The only thing I can think of is that for some reason the apn settings were lost. Double check the settings in the wireless manager. Does it make phone calls?
