APN Settings

       Looking for the right APN settings for your cell phone?  Having trouble getting MMS (picture messaging) and data to work on your prepaid wireless plan?  Well you’ve found the right place to fix your problems.  Here I’ve compiled a list of all the major MVNOs and prepaid wireless providers in the USA and their appropriate APN settings.  Simply find your provider, click on the corresponding link and you’ll be taken to a page containing all known APN settings used by that provider for smartphones.  Please note: It is very IMPORTANT that you follow all the formatting shown in the APN text settings.  If you see something capitalized, then capitalize it in your settings.  If you see a comma, use a comma, if there are no spaces between the comma and other words, then don’t make spaces between them and the words in your settings.  If you don’t follow this advice, your APN settings will not work properly, and your internet and/or mms picture messaging may not work.  Last, you are likely visiting this page because you can’t get your mms or data to work properly.  Prior to switching to one of the settings listed here, it is recommended that you delete all the other non working APN settings on your phone.  After applying the new settings, be sure to save them, and then select one.  If you still find they don’t work, try rebooting your phone.  If you still don’t have success, leave a comment so the issue can be looked into.  If you find you have APN settings that work and are different than listed here, feel free to share the settings in the comments section or send an email so that the database can be updated.

About Sprint and Verizon APN’s

Most of the time with Sprint and Verizon MVNOs you shouldn’t have to do anything other than to update your PRL and network profile settings either buy dialing a special code number into your dialer or by using software that’s already built into your phone.  The preferred method is using software already built into your phone typically found in your system settings if you are an Android User or through iTunes or Cellular Data Network settings if you have an iPhone.

I’m having NO luck with this. I have been working at this for several hours and have tried dozens of settings. Every setting I tried from this page was double checked and still not working. I lost my phone so the wife went to rent a center and got me an S4. At that store the customer purchases a net10 wireless 4g lte (gsm compatible) ‘bring your own phone’ SIM card. So using that net10 SIM card I ported my straight talk phone number to the S4. APN was set so that it would work but the 4g symbol wouldn’t… Read more »

The iapn setting that tracfone gives you when you set up with Verizon on an iphone don’t work and it isn’t listed by you. The ones they give you don’t work with ios9 since the certificate is outdated.
