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.

Thank you for this info. After an hour and a half with dealer support from Metro- I got NOWHERE with my Note 9 from Verizon. I had mms working but NO internet. Thanks to your 3rd alternate settings the internet works! So I promptly hung up on them as they were pretty confused. (Not to knock them so bad- I worked for them for 10 years. Their level 3 support is excellent but you have to call the consumer side and get through a lot of BS before you get them. The dealer tech support leaves quite a bit to… Read more »

FYI alternate settings 3 was the combination I needed for a tmobile note 8 to completely work properly on metropcs. Other settings would allow either mms to work, or mobile hotspot to work but not both.

I too just bought an unlocked AT&T Samsung Galaxy S7 and am having trouble with my messages. I use Metro PCS as my carrier. It will not download messages from some people ( I am pretty sure they all have Iphones). I usually mesage them telling them I can’t download their message and they resend it to me and it works then. Then we will be texting back and forth and all of a sudden their messages will stop downloading again. So frustrating. I have entered all the APN’s above with no change, then I messaged my phone and it… Read more »

you have to call metropcs customer service and tell them you want to switch your phone and give them the phone number of your unlocked phone. with metropcs you can’t just put the sim in another phone. you can either call them or chat online with them and they will do it free. if you go to a store, they will charge you
