Step 1. While seeing home screen on the iPhone you need to take the Straight Talk SIM card out to replace it with either My Simple Mobile or T-Mobile SIM. If the card you are using isn’t active you will see No Service status. Don’t worry about it right now.

Step 2. Proceed to Settings, choose General, go to Cellular and select Cellular Data Network. Don’t worry if these settings are blank.

Step 3. Leave the Settings open and take the My Simple Mobile or T-Mobile SIM out. Now insert your Straight Talk card in iPhone once again. You must be quick to go to Cellular – Cellular Data Network, if you are fast enough you will get to your cellular data settings. Do you see them? Wait for approximately 10 seconds while previous settings load. We’ll change them in the next step.
