What are the APN Settings for U.S. Cellular?

If you have a Straight Talk phone, chances are the phone is locked to that specific network. If you want to use the phone with another carrier, you’ll need to have the device unlocked first. The following are Straight Talk’s unlocking stipulations:

 

  1. Straight Talk will unlock phones of current and former Straight Talk customers without charge. Non-former customers may request unlocking, but Straight Talk may charge a reasonable fee
  2. The Straight Talk phone must have been activated on Straight Talk Service for no fewer than 12 months with service plans redeemed in no fewer than 12 months
  3. Customers must possess a Straight Talk phone that is not reported stolen, lost, or associated with fraudulent activity
  4. If a customer in good standing requesting phone unlocking is deployed as military personnel, upon provision of deployment papers, Straight Talk will honor that customer's unlocking request

 

Straight Talk will provide customers who can’t unlock their phones with a partial refund or credit against the purchase of a new Straight Talk phone if they meet the following conditions:

 

  1. Customers must have had their locked phone activated on Straight Talk Service for no fewer than 12 months, redeemed air time cards in no fewer than 12 months, and not have had their telephone number recycled or ported.
  2. Customers must request this interim unlocking solution while their Straight Talk Service is active or within 60 days after their Service expires. This 60-day grace period applies even if the customer's telephone number was recycled or ported.
  3. Customers must currently own a Straight Talk phone model launched on Straight Talk's Service after February 11, 2014 or activated with Straight Talk's Service after February 11, 2015.
  4. Customers must possess a Straight Talk phone that is in working condition.
  5. Customers must possess a Straight Talk phone that is not reported stolen, lost, or associated with fraudulent activity.
  6. If a customer in good standing requesting handset unlocking is deployed as military personnel, upon provision of deployment papers, Straight Talk will honor that customer's unlocking request by sending a refund for the trade-in value of the used, locked phone returned by the customer without regard to the 12 months of service activation and Service Plan redemption eligibility requirements.
  7. Customers are eligible for this program only once every twelve (12) months.
