    need help with my samsung galaxy s3 apn on straight talk! please assist

    Just got a new factory unlocked gs3. I bought a new AT&T compatible SIM card from straight talk for my old phone. It was a regular SIM card so I had to cut it to fit. I know the SIM card works because I can make calls and send texts. I have tried every apn I could find online and I have tried the one in the activation card. I have tried to contact straight talk but they haven't got back to me yet. I can't get the Internet to work at all. Am I missing a setting or am I using the wrong APN? I restart the phone after I enter a new APN. Also I transferred a number from another company. I don't think that has anything to do with it. Just wanted to tell you all just in case. Also my gs3 is running jellybean 4.1.1. Does any have any ideas or new APN? Any help will be greatly appreciated

    I have the Samsung Note II which is almost the same, the settings they advise on the ST insert are good.

    Name: Straight Talk
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: proxy.mvno.tracfone.com (I leave this field blank actually)
    Port: 80
    MMSC: http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.33
    MMS Port: 80

    Make sure you save the settings, if you just back out w/o saving, they will not be retained.

    That is exactly what I got on my Galaxy S3 and it works just fine

    I just tried those settings, and restarted my phone. I still can't get on the Internet.
