    I have an HTC Desire (rooted-- CyanogenMod-7.2.0-RC1-bravoc). If you need more info on it please let me know.

    Can anyone help me change the APN settings so I can make it into a Straight Talk phone? I've tried various apps on the market place but none work.

    Thanks!

    What do you mean by Straight Talk? Do you mean no mobile data?

    Straight Talk is a US virtual operator.

    The thing I notice is that the phone description says "bravoc", ie CDMA. So this isn't just a matter of putting a SIM in and changing APNs.

    Unfortunately we don't have CDMA where I am, so I've no experience of this. I have heard of people modifying CDMA phones to work with a different operator, but don't know what's involved, or whether it's possible in this case. Perhaps someone might be able to help you in http://androidforums.com/straight-talk/?

    Thanks, Hadron. It sounded like long shot to begin with but I'll check out that forum.
