    Nexus 5 + Straight Talk Unlocked Phone MicroSIM (AT&T) = Fast LTE speeds
    Note: I got the MicroSIM very recently after they began offering AT&T SIMs again with the LTE support, it was $7.43 after taxes with free shipping

    looks great! I'm still messing with my APN settings trying to find something that works. I've ended up posting in the ST forums to see if I get any support there. A friend with an N5 reported similar stats though - impressive.

    I've heard the old SIMs may not work with the new APN settings on Straight Talks web site, that's why I got a new MicroSIM from Straight Talk recently and it works great so far with the current APN settings from Straight Talk's website.

    I bought my sim about a month ago in anticipation (just ported from Verizon last night) so hopefully I should be good on that front. Thanks for the info tho. I don't want to hijack your thread.

    I've asked for help in another thread so hopefully it will get resolved and I'll be zipping along like you are!

    So it mentions video streaming and the like violate the TOS. Does that include Netflix and such? I'd hope not...
