    Does anyone know if Straight Talk is blocking Netflix on the SII? When I run it, WiFi or Mobile Network, it runs... lets you select a movie... however, when it comes to the "Loading..." screen, it hangs. Meaning all you ever get is the loading screen.

    I haven't had a problem with netflix working on any other model. Even the new iPhone 5 from Straight Talk. Granted, it is on the CDMA network, but it works.

    I don't have any problems streaming any other applications either... Crackle, Pandora, Disney Radio, Slacker Radio... all work.

    Any ideas? I thought it may have been the APN, but why would it only exclude Netflix. Maybe it's a port issue? Thoughts?

    Well, just that fast I got it fixed. There is a "Modified" netflix app that can be installed that resolves the problem. It is called "Netflix-v1.8_Black-RotationMod.apk" and "Netflix-Black-RotationMod-v1.8.1.apk". It actually is modified to play in portrait mode instead of automatically switching to landscape, but it works on SII with CM10.1.

    Here is the link to the apps. They are downloaded as .ZIP files... but just change the .ZIP to .APK, copy it to your SD Card and install it.

    Already tested. Works GREAT!
