I created this page to help readers set up Straight Talk Wireless data, Internet, and MMS picture messaging on the Samsung Galaxy S II running Android 2.3. If your Galaxy S II is running Android 4, the steps may be a little different. Leave a comment and let me know. I do not have a Samsung Galaxy S II phone but I have written a number of guides for Apple iPhones, Android phones, and even Windows phone so I can try to help you.
If your voice or basic SMS text messages do not work this page will not help you, call Straight Talk support. If you are unable to use your cellular data to access the internet, send or receive MMS picture messages, or group text messages then this page may help you.
This page is for Galaxy S II phones using the Straight Talk AT&T or Straight Talk T-Mobile network SIM cards. If you are not using a SIM in your phone, you may be using Straight Talk on the Verizon or Sprint networks and this page will not help you. Leave a comment if that is the case.
In order to get data and mms service working you must enter the correct APN and MMS settings into your phone. Once you have the correct values, you enter them into the APN settings on your phone.
If you are using the Straight Talk ATT SIM your values are:
MMS proxy: mms3.tracfone.com
MMS Port: 80
If you are using the Straight Talk T-Mobile SIM your values are:
MMS Proxy: 126.96.36.199
MMS proxy port: 80
If you have already tried to set up data and MMS using these values. Leave a comment and I will try to help. These are the most commonly used values.
I do not have an Galaxy S II phone to verify this is correct. If you are reading this, please leave a comment and tell me if this is correct or what needs to be changes. There are so many Android phones available on the market today and I am not able to create a guide for every model.
