Setting the Straight Talk Wireless’ att.mvno APN on your Google Nexus 5 with Android 5 (Lollipop)

This article show you how to set the Straight Talk Wireless att.mvno APN on your Google Nexus 5 with Android 5 also known as Lollipop. My Nexus 5 was using the Android 5.1.1 when I wrote this article. My Nexus 5 just worked automatically when I put my Straight Talk ATT compatible SIM card in the phone. It automatically set the APN to tfdata and added the other settings. I was able to use cellular data as well as send and receive picture messages and group texts. But if your phone is not working for you, or you looked up your APN and its att.mvno, follow the steps below to add a new APN to your phone. If you haven’t looked up your APN first, see Setting Your Straight Talk Wireless’ APN on your Google Nexus 5 with Android 5 (Lollipop)

      Krystal,
      The APN is for data and mms picture messages. If you are having trouble with phone calls, you’ll need to contact straight talk.
