    A friend of mine lost her iPhone a couple of days ago. I have a spare Nokia Lumia 822 for her to use. Will it work on AT&T? She only needs it for talk, text and data. No MMS. I have read thread upon thread about issues with MMS. She does not need MMS. Can someone please confirm whether the 822 will perform the basic functions of talk, text and web?
    Many thanks.

    No. The 822 is a Verizon phone and the Verizon and AT&T networks are very different.

    It will work. All Verizon 4G LTE phones have GSM as a world phone. You will not get LTE but will be able to get HSPA speeds.

    Thanks, HSPA is good enough for my needs. Never had an issue with T-Mo HSPA on 4 different phones so far. So good to know.

    Uh, yeah. Have you read anything in this thread? Me, and a lot more people are using this phone with ATT.

    You're actually using the 822 on AT&T? The Verizon Nokia Lumia 822?

    ...

    Huh. Wow, I learned something new today. That's pretty cool, the 822 is a much better looking phone than the 820.

    Internet APN info for Access Point:

    Access Point Name - straight talk

    Username - blank

    Password - blank

    Proxy Address - mms3.tracfone.com

    Proxy Port - 80

    Network Type - IPv4

    Authentication Type - none



    MMS APN info for Access Point:

    MMS Access Point name - tfdata

    Username - none

    Password - none

    Proxy Address - 66.209.11.33

    Proxy Port - 80

    MMSC Address - http://mms-tf.net

    Network Type - IPv4

    Authentication Type - none


    These settings work for me on everything with a Straight Talk ATT SIM. Make sure you go into the "Cellular" settings in the "Settings" menu, and clear out all the entries for APNs there, then reboot for good measure. If that doesn't work, I don't know to to help you further. Good luck.

    Yep, the SIM slot is unlocked for international use. If you take it to a ATT brick and mortar store, make sure you get the APN info beforehand. Every employee I've dealt with is clueless on how to enter it. I'm sure some exist, though.

    All Verizon Phones using the LTE band must be not locked to their network, as one of the terms of the lease they have for their LTE band.

    47 CFR 27.16 (e):
    [TIP](e) Handset locking prohibited. No licensee may disable features on handsets it provides to customers, to the extent such features are compliant with the licensee's standards pursuant to paragraph (b)of this section, nor configure handsets it provides to prohibit use of such handsets on other providers' networks.[/TIP]

    ...but if they don't have LTE bands for AT&T, T-Mobile or Sprint, what good does that law do?

    It still works on 3G...
    The rule doesn't mean it's optimal to move to another carrier. Just possible.

    I was looking at the Verizon 2520 when I posted that. It says:


    4.Verizon Lumia 2520 supports 4 and 13 LTE network bands

    5.Verizon Lumia 2520 does not support WCDMA network

    6.Verizon Lumia 2520 does not support GSM network

    Update your phone. Use the "Access Point" app in the settings menu and enter the information I posted earlier in the thread.

    The Nokia 822 on Straight Talk if I'm right has no 4G LTE. Is this correct?

    That is correct. It does get HSPA+, which is still pretty good.

    Thanks for the reply. I read and have not confrimed it yet,that AT&T sims that they let Straight Talk use will not give you full 4G LTE. So it does not make since to take a expensive phone expecting to get amazing results. Plus all cell phone carriers can't tell you exactly when and were you will have coverage. It looks like the Verizon Global Ready phones still get you good speeds with Straight Talk and work with sims out of the US. Thats Win,Win!

    Anyone figured out the text issue with the 822 on other networks. Maybe it is just on T-mobile but everything else works great with the correct APN settings, but texting will only send messages if I limit the phone to 2G, anything higher and it won't send.

    Did you install the Nokia Access Point app? If not, you should. Also, one customer of mine (I sell these phones for international use) had that same problem with the SMS while using it with a different carrier and eventually solved it by trying different phone number formats.. For example, try adding +1 at the beginning of the number (if the recipient is a US number, of course). I used a 822 for a few days in T-Mobile and never had that problem. My numbers are all saved with +1 at the begining though.

    I am using the access point app. I will try that. I have tried turning international assistant on and off, and it didn't change.

    I have a Lumia 822 on VZW, and my contract is up at the end of November. I would like to move it directly to AT&T at that time. Not through Straight Talk. Anybody know the APN settings I will need? And, do I need to get the full unlock code from VZW at contract end?
    AT&T store people have put their SIM in the phone, and it works for talk and text only. Would the unlock code fix that?
    I have App Pusher installed.

    No unlock code needed, it will just work when you put the SIM in. I'm not sure of the APN settings, but mine works on T-Mobile. Don't know why data isn't working with an AT&T sim. I would try going into cellular settings and limit it to 3G and see if that works. You won't get LTE.
