    Just wondering if anyone has heard if Straight Talk will be offering the ATT SIM card again. I Have one phone with ATT/ST and everything works well.

    I know it is possible to get an ATT card with Net10, which I did, but MMS is a real problem and there dose not seem to be a reliable solution offered by Net10 or any user-to user help I found that really works.

    So, anything going on with Straight Talk/ATT?

    Not a word. I'm afraid it's gone for good, which would be too bad.

    Not very encouraging that there's been no official word. But it doesn't surprise me. :(

    for your net10 mms problems search around, another member just went to net10 and I posted some links I found on xda forum one of the apn settings people have posted may work for you.

    I've been running my Nexus 4 since 03/06/2013, so just over a month with Straight Talk and I've had zero issues. Why can't you just get a SIM card and cut it to Micro? (That's what I did)

    I have tried about 5 or 6 different APNs for Net10/ATT with no luck. The best shot shot I found was using a Go SMS Pro app.

    I will continue to look and try....

    I did look for the ST/ATT SIM but the prices are a bit out of hand. I really had hoped that the MMS problem would not affect me. Guess I was wrong.

    Question is are you running straight talk on T Mobile network, or straight talk on ATT network.

    The t mobile network has less coverage but great service and speeds, the ATT is in more areas.

    I need the ATT coverage, Tmob just does not cut it for me as service area is very limited where I live.

    Me, too, but you can't even find these any more on either the Straight Talk or WalMart sites.

    The AT&T boat has sailed. I wish Straight Talk would just own up to the fact. I never would have bought a new phone if Straight Talk customer service hadn't let me think ATT was still an option.

    Anyway, the Nexus 4 ended up being great, and I went with Net10. Tested for MMS problems as soon as my phone was set up, and found out I couldn't receive pictures, though I could send them. What I realized pretty quickly is that I wasn't losing picture messages; they were just getting sent to my gmail account whenever I was on wifi. I suppose this might save on data rates? In any case, I'd check your gmail. If you don't have a gmail account linked to your phone, you might want to set one up, and see what happens. Hope this helps you.
