    That’s “Prine”ville, Oregon, not “Prin”ville. :)

    Hi Adam,

    Great show!

    I have a couple of questions for you…

    After reconfiguring the APN on your iPhone to work with the Straight Talk plan SIM, by chance did you try reconfiguring the iPhone back to use an AT&T SIM?

    I ask because I’d like to temporarily try out a Straight Talk SIM in my iPhone 4S just to see how well it works, verify coverage is the same, etc., but I’d need to go back to my AT&T SIM afterwards as I’m still under contract.

    You’ve done a great job explaining how to configure the iPhone APN settings to work with the Straight Talk SIM, but I’m a little unclear on exactly which settings I need to change using the Apple Configurator tool to get the iPhone safely back to use an AT&T SIM. Do I just change the APN back to “wap.cingular”? Do I need to also worry about setting the Access Point User Name and Access Point Password?

    Thanks in advance,

    John L.
