How to Setup Straight Talk Wireless Data and MMS for your iPhone running iOS 7

Installing the Straight Talk APN Profile

Install one of the Straight Talk APN profiles and test to see if data works. If it does not you will need try the remaining APN profiles.

Load My Straight Talk APN Profiles Page

I set up a page for you with links to the three APN profiles on Straight Talk’s web site.

  1. Tap Home
    home
  2. Tap Safari

Install a Straight Talk APN Profile

Try installing each APN profile until you find the one that gets your data working.

  1. Tap wap.tracfone or tap att.mvno or tap tfdata
    Do not load all three at once. Load the first APN Profile on the list and continue on. If it doesn’t work, the guide will direct you back here to try the next profile.

    Bought iPhone4 off my uncle that was previously activated through at&t, I want to switch the phone carrier to straight talk. I called straight talk and they sent me a new sim for the phone. I’m ready to activate but am causious as my uncle purchased an activation kit from Walmart, set phone up only to realize the internet/data didn’t work. Calling and messaging worked but not imsg. I want the phone strictly for the Internet so I don’t want to buy a 45$ card if I can’t recieve data? What am I doing wrong? Is there something in settings i could check for that i possibly have turned off HELP!

      Hi Jacob,
      Assuming you are using the straight talk att sim your data should work. If you update your phone to the latest version of iOS 7, data should work automatically. Obviously, I can’t speak to what problem your uncle may have had and when you sign up for straight talk, there is always some risk that you might not be able to get it to work. They don’t like to give refunds either, so you’ll spend time arguing them trying to get one.
