    Hello,
    I just had the most frustrating past two days attempting to try EVERY single APN setting that has been listed on the internet for my new UNLOCKED Nokia Lumia 920 on Straight Talk.
    To get the Internet & MMS working on Straight Talk - THERE ARE NEW SETTINGS FROM STRAIGHT TALK that I did not once find posted in a forum. The representative at Straight Talk informed me that these new settings are a very recent change, so if you are wanting to add your unlocked Lumia 920 to Straight Talk, here you go:
    *Internet APN:
    APN: tfdata
    User name: (blank)
    Password: (blank)
    Proxy server (URL): (blank)
    Proxy port: (blank)

    *MMS APN:
    APN: tfdata
    User name: (blank)
    Password: (blank)
    WAP gateway (URL): mms3.tracfone.com
    WAP gateway port: 80
    MMSC (URL): http://mms-tf.net/
    MMSC port: 80
    Maximum MMS size: (blank)

    And it literally started working IMMEDIATELY! (if not, please reboot your phone)
    I hope this is helpful... as it would have been for me two days ago when I bought the phone..
    Thanks.

    FYI for other folks struggling with Straight Talk...

    My 1st month with them these settings did NOT work. I called them & said these settings were working for other people & not me & they could not give me any logical explanation. They insisted the problem was with my phone. My 30 days rolled over during Xmas so no time to change services & signed up for another 30 days. All of a sudden these settings started working! The only change made was signing up for another 30 days. Very odd! I have a locked phone, so these settings work for those as well.

    I just hope I can spare some folks the frustration & countless hours I spent trying to get my MMS & group text working. Hang in there, these settings do work.

    nuprotocol, I've had LTE since day 1.

    Hi Jackie...

    Have you tried to receive picture messages?

    I have had these exact APN settings and they are not working for me. (picture messages) I can send, but not receive. I have been on phone with ST numerous times, with no luck.

    These worked for me as well with Straight Talk.

    Was trying to use my unlocked 920 on T-Mobil but could not get everything working - even with the help of a T-Mobil rep.

    Doesn't seem to work on a Lumia 635. Absolutely no way whatsoever to send or receive MMS.

    OMG THANK YOU!

    I was on their website trying to figure it out and the tutorials they had for Nokia phones didn't match the phone at all. I Googled "update apn windows phone nokia straight talk" and one of the top links was your post on this forum. I created an account just to comment to thank you. I was so frustrated with Straight Talk today already after issues porting my old number from my broken iPhone to the new SIM card to activate this phone, and them not porting my old minutes to the new device. I didn't want to have another conversation with a falsely compassionate tech. Thank you for posting this.

    Great info! Just did it and works great! I would much rather read how to do it than calling Straight Talk. Thanks again!

    I know with my old 520 I had to disable wifi and enable data in order to get MMS to work, that was the only way.

    BTW: These settings still work in 2018 --which I thankfully discovered after wasting 3 hours troubleshooting with StraightTalk's customer service. I was COMPLETELY unable to use any secure (HTTPS://) websites and most apps for weeks before I discovered this post and ignored ST's recommended settings. Thanks!

    (Note: I didn't change MMS APN: "RESELLER", just Internet APN)
