Trying to change VPN to APN Iphone 3GS

Trying to change VPN to APN Iphone 3GS

Postby siimpleone » Wed Jun 20, 2012 10:53 pm

OK, bought a unlocked Apple iphone (used AT&T) well installing the new Sraight Talk SIM card and the program in the phone has NO options for APN settings (Required by Straight Talk)
The Service Reps @ Straight Talk told me "too bad" oh well, they were no help at all. Except to buy "their" phones......

Anyone sucessfully charge the VPN setting to APN so I can use my new SIM card and service

You have to jailbreak and unlock the phone, then go to unlockit.co.nz and you'll be able to unlock the options which should be in settings/general if memory serves

I too purchased and unlocked and jailbroken used Iphone 3gs. I was able to get the straight talk sim card to work for the phone service, but not for the data service. My phone has a VPN but it looks like it needs to be an APN to work for me. Anyone know the best way to go about changing this?

HAS ANYONE SUCCESSFULLY CHANGED VPN TO APN SETTINGS ON THEIR IPHONE 4?

I have a legally unlocked Apple iphone 4--not jailbroken-- (formerly I was w/ AT&T, they unlocked the phone as it is out of contract). I installed the Straight Talk SIM card but phone has NO options for APN settings, which Straight Talk requires. They said they cannot help me. Thanks.

Hi rumpel. My name is Straight Talk Stephanie. Please follow the below instructions to setup your phone's APN settings:

1. Press "Settings"
2. Select "General"
3. Select "Network"
4. Select "Cellular Data Network"

*if this option does not appear, the handset is not Jailbroken
Jailbroken iPhone Standard "Stock" iPhone
The following fields will appear:
• Cellular Data
• APN: att.mvno
• Username: leave this field blank
• Password: leave this field blank
• MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
• MMS Proxy: mms2.tracfone.com:80

• This IP Address must include the MMS Port; otherwise it will not work on the iPhone.
• MMS Max Message Size: 1048576
• MMS UA Prof URL: do not make any changes to this field
• Make sure to delete the current APN on your phone and reboot
Thank you!
