Hi Luke
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.
Good luck.

SOURCE: how to add apn for sgh a597 on straight talk

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.

SOURCE: what would cause an unlocked, fully charged iphone 4 to turn its self off when using a straight talk sim

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.

Success.

My Straight Talk Huawei says it has no service but was working last night and now just wont send messages what is going on


1. Did you pay the bill? Check with them, maybe your service got cut off.
2. If it isn't #1, Take the SIM card out and put it back again, maybe the SIM card is faulty.
3. If possible, go to settings, mobile network, and choose to search for your wireless carrier, once it pop up, tap it to register.
4. You also must make sure your APN is in order. And have the correct APN check for Straight Talk.

APN setting in Straight talk Samsung


Which version of Android do you have? I have an unlocked Samsung S3 LTE on Straight Talk sim and was not able to do a jelly bean update. It wasn't until after I reset to default I was able to do that. Except now I can"t get Internet nor MMS pics. So after calling Straight Talk several times and getting numerous APN settings I finally got someone who at least gave me an APN that gives me internet. Still not able to receive MMS. So let me know the operation system and Phone Model and I have saved numerous APN settings and would not mind sharing them with you

Data must be enabled on the phone for MMS to function. Also, it's possible that you need to manually configure the APN settings. Your service provider should be able to tell you the correct APN.
