    Ok so I jailbroke my 3gs so I could send and receive MMS with straight talk. But other than this what can I do now that its jailbroke and how do I do it? Also I ran through the process with redsn0w and as far as I can tell there is nothing different about the phone other than the little cydia app. Which has a blank logo. Did I do something wrong or is this because I dont yet have a sim in the phone. Please help I am a total newb to all this.:eek:

    Cydia is your gateway to all the apps and tweaks you can't get on the apple store.

    With every new apple IOS that is released I am finding less of a reason to jailbreak anymore.

    most recently the only thing I really cared about was sbsettings, now I see that is basically (finally coming to IOS7) so I may just run stock from here on out.

    Haha alls you have to do is google "reasons to jailbreak" and you'll get a bazillion search results.

    This place is getting stranger by the day ever since iOS6 was jailbroken. I'm afraid what it'll be like when iOS7 is jailbroken...

    Regardless I'll still be posting here because this is the first and only forum I've ever been an active member. There are still some solid threads amidst all the bad ones.

    OP...there's a thread on this topic (again) that was started the other day and was last posted in yesterday morning. There are a ton more all on this same topic. Here's the link...

    In order to SMS and MMS on "Straight Talk" you must enter the correct settings in General/Cellular/Cellular Data Network.

    Since you are now jailbroken, you need to purchase TetherMe to gain access to this panel to be able to enter the info.

    Cellular Data
    APN: att.mvno

    Visual Voicemail

    MMS

    Wouldn't the phone default to Carrier 14.0 (until a SIM card is put in) and give you access to the panel if the device is unlocked?

    Is it a tethered jailbreak (6.1.3 ??)
    Do you need to just boot tethered ?

    Once you enter the settings and allow the phone to save them, they will stick. I have had an iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 all on Straight Talk without any issues. I am back to AT&T now due to they have LTE speeds in my location, which Straight Talk does not have nor are likely to have anytime soon.

    Yet, unless you enter the settings exactly as I gave them to you, you may have issues.

    Glad you got it working !

    I can't remember the exact details, but there's a known bug in media imessages. I know BiteSMS discovered the bug (you can read about it in their forum) and implemented a fix. They offer a free version. You can install that app and see if it resolves your problem. You can still use the stock messages app of you prefer. Not sure why you would want to though because BiteSMS is THE BOMB!
