    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!



    COURTESY OF 'HADRON' ->

    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 Straight Talk - Android Forums

    Modifying a phone to run on another network takes more than just changing the apns, you would also have to change the esn, witch boarders legality issues.

    So you would be better off just to buy a new phone, because you would have to have a straight talk phone to get the esn that would be allowed on the network.
