    I just bought a unlocked iphone 5 from the apple store and got a straight talk sim (AT&T). I had to cut down the sim and had to do the sim swap with a t-mobile sim card in order for the MMS and data to work which works fine and installed the settings from unlockit.co.nz. My problem is that my data is really slow like 569kbps download.

    Is there a setting or something to make my data go faster?

    Thanks

    Maybe you're at a slow or congested network area?
    There is no slow or faster apn settings. They either work or they dont.

    Doesn't Straight Talk use T-Mobile's edge network? I thought when you have an unlocked AT&T iPhone 5, you can't use LTE plus I don't even think that T-Mobile has LTE yet. If I were you I'd try another prepaid carrier that can give you access to AT&T's LTE network for better data.

    I believe ST uses AT&T's towers.
    If it was Tmobile most likelly he would get Edge data only and that wouldnt hit anywhere near 569kbps.
