    We had jailbroke my sisters phone so she could use it on Straight Talk. She is still running an older version, 6.something. Now that she's moved over to my att plan, I want to return it to stock and update her OS. I'm guessing I cant just update and override the jailbreak. If I do a backup with iTunes, does it backup all text, photos, etc? If so I would just do a backup, factory reset, update the OS, then use iTunes to recover the backup. Does that seem right? I apologize but I use Android not iOS so I don't understand what the backup covers with iTunes.

    Yes. Don't reset the phone from the settings. Restore it using iTunes.

    Yes the backup covers the photos and everything. Backup, restore, and then load backup. Done.

    Well everything backed up and restored correctly. I have her on 7.1 now but MMS refuses to work. Tried resetting network settings, didn't work. Any ideas?

    You may need to check the APN settings, those may be wrong.

    Jailbreaking the device doesn't have anything to do with using it on another network/carrier. That would require an unlock. If you unlocked the phone then you need to have the correct AT&T network settings for everything to work properly.

    Is the phone an AT&T branded phone?

    Try resetting the network settings, you may also try an APN from Unlockit - APN Changer for your iPhone

    Correct, but to have picture messaging on Straight Talk you did have to jailbreak. Now its back to complete stock and latest firmware. It's fully on att post paid account now and its an att iPhone, locked as always to att.

    It is, but I would think that I could avoid that at this point since its on ATT proper and not an MVNO. I reset the network settings, toggled the network connection, imessage, SMS/MMS settings, pretty much all that I could think of.

    Still no MMS and at&t proved that it was software and not her Sim or anything because they took it out and put it into another device and it worked without issue. Is there a way to wipe back to factory again but only install text pics and contacts but no apps? I feel like it may be a ghost from when cydia was installed or something.

    Make sure pics are saved to photo stream and back up your contacts and restore as new.

    What about text then? I think what is happening is that the old APN settings are getting stored with the backup we keep restoring from. That or the actually APN settings app being there but not shown since its not jail broken? Idk.
