I wrote this guide to share with you how I set up my Straight Talk data/internet connection and MMS picture messaging on my Google LG Nexus 5 running Android 4.4 (KitKat). While this guide shows how I set up my Nexus 5, I would expect it would work with other phones running Android 4.x.
What This Guide Will Help You With

Phone and SIM information
My phone is Google Nexus 5 (Black 32 GB) that I ordered from directly from Google Play. The phone is carrier unlocked so it can be used on either the ATT or T-Mobile network. My phone is running Android 4.4.
I have an activated Straight Talk Wireless Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) ATT network-compatible micro SIM. I ordered my SIM directly from the Straight Talk Wireless so that I would get one of the new 4G LTE compatible SIMs that are now available.
