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.

okay but how do i get to the apn settings there is NOTHING related to that. I even went in settings and used “search” for apn and APN … useless and i seriously feel TW is a scam. I used to use net10 and had no problems. I just wanted cheaper and i regret it…

Using a T-M sim to access the APN settings then put the TW sim back in and when I try to save it says “carrier does not allow adding apns of type default”

Thank you so much for posting this! I was getting so frustrated and this worked perfectly. thank you!

Okay, so I had the same issue.. (Pixel 2 XL -Total Wireless)

Things that do not work:
Go buy a TracFone sim kit and try the above additions (same issue as the TW sim)
Try my old Project Fi sim. (I could edit but, it did not work)

What did work:
Find a verizon sim card and change to TRACFONE.VZWENTP, swap sim and save.. Save yourself the headache and do this if you can..

Using these settings I was able to partially fix my data problems on my Pixel 2. I can now connect but only at 3G I am not able to connect to LTE. I could not save the Bearer settings, it always went back to unspecified.

I don’t think bearer is too important here. Try making the apn lowercase like tracfone.vzwentp

Still only 3G

Is data turned on for the device? Did you try editing the APN inside the Textra app? Did you try changing the APN type within the Textra app? In the phone’s system settings, can you add a new apn? Trying to edit what is there may not be necessary.

Got the LG Fiesta 2. Total wireless about a week ago. Same as Evan and Caroline. Sending and receiving pictures works almost never. spent hours on the phone with total wireless and hours chatting with them. no relief. hard reset only helped briefly. For my apn it says tracfone.vzwentp. You can’t edit anything there, I have seen many discussions on settings, there are none. tried default messaging app. Tried textra. will work with text now, but that is a pain.

I’m having the same problem, same phone. I also called customer service who basically only told me to restart my phone repeatedly for about 2 hrs, ignoring me completely about APN settings..

Same dude. i swear TW is a scam…

I have a Pixel 2 XL and on Total Wireless sim in the phone it will not let you change these setting and then only the phone works not Data! I have been working with users on this site for help and I am still needing work on my phone an Total Wireless because my upload and download speeds are not as they need to be when on LTE service.

You can thank Verizon for this issue and maybe Google. In order to get this to work you have a couple of options.

One is to root the phone. This should give you the ability to edit the APN again. Someone else told me they were able to use an old Straight Talk CDMA sim card that they had on hand and then they could edit the APNs to work with Total Wireless.

Just got a LG Fiesta 2 Tracfone (runs on Verizon network) everything works great except sending or receiving photo texts or MMS, tried changing the APN settings as you suggest but still isnt working for me.
