    Hey everyone! I'm new here and in desperate need of some help.

    I'm on the BYOP program for straight talk and I'm having such a hard time with phones that work with the network. I did a lot of research online and thought the Motorola Atrix 2 was going to work fine (as it has for most) but so far no luck for me at all. Everything works but the data and pic messaging.
    I've tried Tweakker, no luck.
    I've tried to delete the original T-Mobile apn but the phone won't let me no matter what app I use. Is there anyone who has had this problem and knows how to fix it?

    These are the APN settings you should use: Straight Talk APN settings & how to change them for Android phones

    But if you can't save them it sounds like you need to root the phone.

    Re: Straight Talk for Atrix 2 problems

    Thanks for your reply (:

    Unfortunately, I've tried this already. I'm able to save new apns.. and I know my phone is unlocked. But I'm not able to delete the original T-Mobile apn (locked on) and no apps I have tried has let me (says its because of Android 4.0 permissions). The other apns obviously work as far as making and receiving calls/texts... but no data still ):
    Will rooting my phone fix all of this, do you think?

    Well, the APN sets what the phone connects to for data/mms, and has nothing to do with voice, so they aren't working as intended Is there a way to set the active APN? With my phone it's a radio button next to the APN.

    If you can't set an APN then I believe the only way to remove the t-mobile APN is with a root.

    Well, I can select whatever apn I want, but it has a little unlocked icon next to it.. and the original T-Mobile one is locked. I feel like this is what is hindering me.

    But I've had another phone set up exactly like that, and it didn't seem to affect it all.

    So, when you select the Straight Talk APN settings, and save it, and then reboot the phone, it still doesn't work?

    I don't think it matters if there are several APN settings on there, as long as the correct one is selected.

    Did you use the proper APN settings? They can be different depending on whether you have a T-Mobile SIM card or AT&T SIM card from Straight Talk.

    Re: Straight Talk for Atrix 2 problems

    That's what I thought, as well. But someone from S.T. told me that the internet/data wouldn't work properly if there was more than one apn on the phone... even though I've had other phones that way.
    I contacted Straight Talk about the SIM cards and they told me they don't have AT&T SIM cards, just T-Mobile (as of now)
    The original APN on the phone is T-Mobile (even though its an AT&T phone). I tried to get one for AT&T to see if that's where I messed up, but since they don't carry the AT&T sims at the moment, I can't try that obviously. Nothing has worked so far. I've tried several apn's I found online and from Straight Talk themselves. And a few apps that said they could help. Even after rebooting the device. ITS SO FRUSTRATING! I've never had so much difficulty with them before. I think I will try to root my phone as soon as I get the data cable for it.. The phone's unlocked so I don't see what else could be the problem at this point.

    Do you know why there is an unlock symbol next to the T-Mobile APN if it is an AT&T phone? Maybe you can press and hold the Straight Talk APN and "lock" it, possibly making it the default. If it does allow you to lock it, then maybe you can delete the other one.

    I'm not sure what the problem is here. Have you tried calling the phone's manufacturer?

    Honestly, I'm not sure why. I just tried to hold it to lock, but that didn't work.

    Its hard to find any apps that will work for ICS ):
