Unhappy I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 SGH-S959G for Tracfone and can't add a new apn?

I am trying to edit or add a new apn to convert my galaxy s2 SGH-S959G into a straight talk apn. I know the apn settings, but it wont allow me to change or add them. I even downloaded apn backup and restore, deleted the apn, and the only option thereafter was to restore the default apn. when I go into the apn, it is grayed out and won't let me change anything.

I feel so dumb....I am awesome at dealing with gadgets, and I just can't figure this one out.

Do I need to unlock or jailbreak it? It makes calls and texts and works on wifi, but when I'm not in a wifi zone, I cannot use mms or web.

Please help me. I know this might be a hard one, as I cannot find ANYTHING on this subject..... am I just doomed?

again this is the tracfone model SGH-S959G not the straight talk model. I want to USE my straighttalk service with it.

Ziplip SGH-S959G APN issue

You do not have to change the APN to use Straight Talk as your service provider. I have the Tracfone version of the same phone and it was purchased from Straight Talk. If you want another provider you will have to root the phone and unlock it.

If you have that version it should already be on Straight Talk as it's the Straight Talk version of the S2.

Otherwise you might need to unlock the device to edit the APN settings.

I know there is a mod floating around to be able to edit the APN settings, requires you to change some system settings....
