Straight Talk Settings (issues with data connection?)
I just got my htc one unlocked, but am having problems receiving hspa+ data with my Straight talk sim (t-mobile). It's always on edge even though on my nexus 4 I was getting hspa+ in the same locations. I'm coming from a Nexus 4 and had no issues with that. Anyone know of a solution ? I need some help.
Device(s): - T-Mobile Defy on AT&T 850/3G, or on T-Mo
- AT&T Galaxy Note on AT&T
- T-Mobile Gal Tab 7.0 Plus on
Carrier: Not Provided

If your unlocked version does not have the 1700 radio support needed for T-Mo (USA), then you will not get HSPA. At least not until they roll out HSPA on the more common 1900 band in your area, if at all.

I figured it out. And it sucks. I have a t-mobile straight talk sim with unlocked HTC one, it doesn't support 1700 band. So basically I'm screwed. I can wait for T-mobile to upgrade their network but that would take forever. I think I'm returning these 2 phones and buying t-mobile ones tomorrow.
Have checked everything, apns, restarts, have 4g data that is working wi fi is good. mms messages just say transient failure. straight talk has no ideas. ive tried sending pics to myself. have had others send me pics on other networks still no mms please advice
this is not a support forum for Straight Talk, so the members here are only able to help as best as they can.
you need to reach out to Straight Talk again and speak to another rep. that's ludicrous for a rep for the company to say they have no ideas. unacceptable.
there are only so many things to be wrong here (in no particular order):
1. if you are rooted, could be an issue with the rom (are you rooted?)
2. the APN settings are incorrect
3. factory reset
4. return the phone. if out of grace period, initiate a trouble ticket with HTC
5. SIM card error
6. faulty device
