Fix your MMS picture messaging and data internet problems with one of the APN settings listed.

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. If you need to send an email for any other reason, please list what phone you are using and which carrier/MVNO that you are having trouble getting your APN to work with.

Hi. I have a verizon note 4. My carrier is metropcs. My issue is that i dont get good service at all! I always( not literally always, but enough to the point where its caused me to reach out for help. Hence, this post) have no signal and the phone switches to global mode. I get every feature, picture sms, sms , data , cell service. It just always loses service. Can someone help me, please? Or is it the phone ? Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanku in advance for ur time and mobile wisdom.

What are the differences between the alternate settings? Also, why do some sites say that the MNC should be 16, is there a difference?

Sounds like you either have a bad sim card, or T-Mobile’s signal isn’t strong enough in your area.

Hey, All, After having a mini-stoke (not really) after dealing with MetroPCS “customer service”, I’ve turned to peer support for assistance. I have had a samsung s5 on the MetroPCS network for several years, and recently, my texts have been giving me intermittent issues, but only when trying to send while on wifi. I can receive everything while on wifi, and most times I’m able to send while on wifi, but recently the texts wont go through, whether it’s just a SMS text, or a MMS. So, today I upgraded to an unlocked S9+, and the texts would not go… Read more »

I have a new Huawei Mate SE I purchased thru amazon. This phone’s bands are compatible with Metro. I was already a Metro customer and took the phone to a Metro store (two weeks ago) to switch over service from my Galaxy S5.

Data and calls were working as normal. ALL was working fine… Read more »
