    If you put the Straight Talk SIM in the phone (and it is unlocked, or it won't accept it) you should be able to edit the APN. The APN lock is SIM-specific.

    Note that you also need to edit the MMSC.

    If you run into trouble with the latter load a 10.2.0 leak -- they're editable on those.

    Thanks for quick reply guys. I have straight talk micro ATT sim on a stl100-3 model. I am on 10.2.0.1767 leak. Apn settings are grayed. Do I need to unlock the phone first? Please i been googling and searching threads here but no solutions. Please post if you're successful in changing the apns.

    Sounds like it's getting the APN from the SIM but it's wrong.

    I've not seen that... the Straight Talk SIM I have here is a T-Mobile one and I was able to edit with it in the phone.

    T-Mobile's SIMs (including their MVNOs, since the MCC/MNC is the same) have unlocked APNs and MMSCs.

    AT&T's do not. And yes, this includes Straight Talk's.

    You can get around the data APN lock with escreens, but you CANNOT get around the MMS one. At least not that I've been able to. If you remove the SIM you can edit it, but when you re-insert it the MMSC gets changed back and the option to edit disappears.

    This is a major "f-u" from BlackBerry to its customers because it means that you CANNOT use their phones with many MVNOs -- specifically, at MINIMUM all AT&T MVNOs and probably many others.

    Android and Windows Mobile do not honor these flags; there is utterly no reason for BlackBerry to, at least not for unlocked devices. I can see the argument with a LOCKED device, but not an unlocked one.
