    How Do I Access the Web Using StraightTalk Unlimited Data Plan?

    Hi Everyone!

    I just got a Nexus 4, my first smart phone, and the Straight Talk unlimited data plan. My problem is accessing the internet. I'm hooked up to our home wi-fi on the Nexus 4 but when I'm out and about I'm not sure how to access the internet via the Straight Talk data plan. When I click the Googe Chrome icon I get the following message:

    "Unable to connect to the Internet. Google Chrome can't display the webpage because your mobile device isn't connected to the Internet. Error 106 (etc...): The Internet connection has been lost."

    I guess my phone thinks it's only internet connections is via the home wi-fi. How do I access the "unlimited data plan" portion of my Straight Talk service?

    Thanks!

    First make sure you have enabled data, go into settings, data usage, and make sure that the slider beside mobile data is on. Go back to settings, under wireless & networks tap more, then tap mobile networks, there should be a check mark in data enabled. Let us know if you have these both on.

    Hopefully you have better luck than I'm having on tmobile. I love my nexus 4 but I'm thinking tmobile is more about advertising how great their service is (lie) than actually providing any.

    Play around with the mobile network settings. I found out my phone wasn't even connecting to tmobile, it was stuck on something called commnet. My service still isn't great but it's a lot better.

    Did you set up (create) your APN under Data usage>more>mobile network settings>Access Point Names?
