I have had IPhones for a couple of years, and recently got an IPhone 5 thru Walmart, and connected to Straight Talk. I am on the Verizon Network, 3G. I seldom use the data capability, but didn't like that it was not automatically installed when I activated the phone. Today, after an hour or more on hold with the provider, I looked at the Straight Talk Wireless Forums, and found a simple procedure to get the data capability. Following instructions, I connected to ITunes on my computer, did a complete backup, then erased the IPhone. Then I restored the backup files to the IPhone from ITunes. The phone shut itself off then on, absorbed the files being restored, and now it is fully functional. My gripe with Straight Talk is there was the need to do this at all, and I had to get the information from a discussion site, not the Straight Talk website.
