    I bought this phone second hand, it was already jail broken when i got it. The wifi will not turn on, it doesn't even slide to the on button.. It just says off and it's frozen. I tried to restore it but it kept giving me an error. I can't even change the name of the phone to mine.. I had an iPhone 3GS and I have an iPad so I'm not new to the Apple products. The phone is suppose to be set up to work with straight talk.. But I don't know what to do!

    Help

    Try this:
    Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

    If that doesn't work, is it unlocked? If it is unlocked, is it a software unlock or an IMEI unlock? If you aren't sure, go into Cydia and check if ultrasn0w is installed. What error did you receive in iTunes?

    I read somewhere the if I restore it I could lose jailbreak and also lose the ability to jail break it ever again. I just want the wifi to work and for the phone to work on straight talk. What do you recommend I do?

    That is true. What iPhone model is it?
    Did you try this?
    Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

    Is it unlocked? If it is unlocked, is it a software unlock or an IMEI unlock? If you aren't sure, go into Cydia and check if ultrasn0w is installed.

    An AT&T iPhone phone does not have to be unlocked to use Straight Talk. Did you try putting your SIM in it? Did it recognize it or say No SIM or No Service? As far as WiFi goes, I would try uninstalling ultrasn0w and seeing if WiFi starts working. If it doesn't, the next step is to restore. But you will lose jailbreakability if you restore. It sucks, but I guess you'll have to decide which you want more - WiFi or the jailbreak. What errors did you get when you tried to restore? The correct term for your WiFi problem is "WiFi toggle is greyed out" if you want to research it some more.

    I have the sim in, I can send messages and phone calls but I can't connect to Internet through my straight talk service.

    What do I need to do to get my APN settings back on track and sent photo messages

    You can call Straight Talk to get this set up with the proper settings, but try this first. You'll need two settings; one for internet and one for MMS.

    Internet:
    Name: Straight Talk Internet
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: proxy.mvno.tracfone.com
    Port: 80
    User Name: Not Set
    Password: Not Set
    Server: Not Set
    MMSC: Not Set
    MMS Proxy: Not Set
    MMS Port: Not Set
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication Type: PAP or CHAP
    APN Type: Internet
    APN Protocol: IPv4
    Bearer: Unspecified


    MMS (picture messages):
    Name: Straight Talk MMS
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: Not Set
    Port: Not Set
    User Name: Not Set
    Password: Not Set
    Server: Not Set
    MMSC:
    MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.33
    MMS Port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication Type: PAP or CHAP
    APN Type: Internet+MMS
    APN Protocol: IPv4
    Bearer: Unspecified

    You might want to call Straight Talk. They can help you get it set up.

    Reset your iPhone with default settings, your wifi will work after that...
