Question about Cell Phones
I purchased an unlocked huawei ascend y511 on ebay for use on straight talk with an at&t sim. I set the apn setting as per straight talks web site and i am only getting edge data speeds. How can i get 3g data working on this phone?
Im not sure if it has anything to do with the sim. I checked on this with 2 techs and they say its prob an issue with the phone itself. I do tech support for several large carriers and I see that this is most likely something to address with a tech at Straight Talks side too.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

AT&T phone on Straight Talk (sprint)? Unfortunately, AT&T uses GSM which is not compatible withSprint's CDMA technology.
Straight talk runs on the Sprint network, same as Boost and Tracphone. Although some phones are the same, some only work on certain networks.

I had a common problem with my iPhone 4. Using it with maps, it drained the battery within an hour or so. I thought I destroyed the battery. I went to the Apple store, and they offered me a free of charge (3 years old phone) diagnose on the genius bar.
I had to unlock the phone and the genius started an app (I could not see what app) and then put it next to a iPad. The iPad had a program running and within minutes there was the report. The battery was almost as new, but there were a couple of apps, fighting for the first place and draining my battery. It was a known problem, caused by an old firmware (NOT THE OS). They offered me to update the firmware, and half an hour later i was outside with a great working iPhone 4. It still works perfect and I do have a battery life of 3 days (I don't make many calls)
So if you have time to visit the Apple store ask them the same. If he store is not close to you, I would make an appointment using the net. Before you leave to the store, make sure you have a backup, because they will wipe the whole phone.
