Hello. Welcome to JustAnswer, a paid global support site.

The iPhone was not designed for StraightTalk. I'm surprised that it works at all. The jailbreak modifies a lot of the native settings on the iPhone. More than likely the APN is being redirected or the carrier file is being corrupted. There isn't really any documented information on how to get the iPhone to work on StraightTalk. The most I have ever seen on StraighTalk with an iPhone is voice calls. That is the most you are going to get.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
