Default Straight Talk APN settings

Here are my Straight Talk settings for the AT&T sim. I've used these settings since day one, and they've been perfect so far. MMS has always worked, and I've had people text me at different times/locations to verify this (I'm OCD about everything working properly).

I've seen that lots of people are confused about what settings to use or what combination works, and these settings work perfectly. HSPA+ is great and almost always have full signal, even where I live in rural Virginia.

I'll attach a screen shot below of my latest speedtest.net testing. I usually average about 4.2 Mbps down and 1.2 Mbps up.

*I also forgot to add that you don't have to have a separate MMS APN with these settings. You can use only one APN with these settings.

Name:Straight Talk ATT (whatever you like)
APN: att.mvno
Proxy: Not set
Port: Not set
Username: Not set
Password: Not set
Server: Not set
MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS proxy: 66.209.11.33
MMS port: 80
MCC: 310
MNC: 410
Authentication type: Not set
APN type: default,supl,mms,hipri (no spaces)
APN protocol: IPv4
APN roaming protocol: IPv4
APN enable/disable: checked (grayed out)
Bearer: Unspecified

You could switch the APN protocol to IPv4/IPv6. It wouldn't hurt. Otherwise very similar settings to mine, minus the MMS proxy.

Couple of questions regarding your settings:
1) What does setting/not setting the first port to 80 do or not do? Almost all other APN settings I've read or seen have this filled in.
2) What does having hipri under APN type do? Never have seen this before!

BTW- just set my APN to these settings and evening is working great do far. Thank you

I saw somewhere that hipri = high priority. I haven't noticed a difference, but then again I think I'm being throttled. If they're taking calls, hold time is >90 minutes. aintnobodygottimeforthat.jpg

1) I don't exactly remember. It seems like it had something to do with the Proxy, if used.

2) Hipri = high priority. That may or may not make a difference. I added it to begin with because truthfully it couldn't hurt, ha-ha.

I'm glad to hear everything is going well so far. My N4 has been flawless with these settings.
