    This morning some kind of update from Straight Talk just knocked the MMS and data service out of my girlfriend's 4S on 6.1.3. Now all she has is AT&T voice and regular texts but no MMS or data. She called Straight Talk and was told she has to update to 7.0. I don't want to update to 7.0

    Anyone else having this same issue and if so have you found a fix?

    From this post, it appears a new SIM card might fix the problem, outside of updating to iOS 7. From reading that topic, it appears iOS 7 fixes the issue.

    Thanks Chris. I knew I could count on this forum for a solution.

    Anyone else with this problem delete the current APN profile by going to Settings> General> Profile.

    The old APN settings have to be updated and doing it manually didn't work for me so you have to connect to wifi and in safari type in the URL iapnupdatetfdata.straighttalk.com on the search field. You will be redirected to an application that will automatically update the APN settings.

    Even though it says "tfdata" that doesn't mean it's for Tmbile only, it'll work on the Tmobile or the AT&T system depending on which sim card you have from Straight Talk.

    Once I loaded that new profile it worked great. 8 megabits down and 1 up with the old Straight Talk on AT&T sim card on a iPhone 4S on 6.1.2
