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.

If you tried the above and nothing at all works for you, your phone shows no signal and you still can’t place calls, send texts and use data, your phone is either not compatible with the Total Wireless network or you have a bad SIM card and should request a new one from Total Wireless.

If you can use some parts of the phone like make calls and send texts but can not connect to the internet or send MMS your SIM card is fine but your phone may not be compatible with the network. It may also be that you still haven’t found a working APN for your device. You should also double check your APN settings and make sure you haven’t accidentally added a space, or comma to a setting when there shouldn’t be any.

The User Submitted settings are the only ones that worked on my BYOP Samsung Galaxy S9+. I’m very thankful for this site as Total Wireless support has no clue.

I’ll have to update this. The MMSC needs to be set to http://mms.vtext.com/servlets/mms My MMS stopped working out of the blue just a few days after I set this up, and noticed why a few days later: The MMSC field was missing. Also, definitely need mms in the APN Type. So to clarify, the settings that work for my BYOP Samsung Galaxy S9+ are: Name: APN: TRACFONE.VZWENTP MMSC: http://mms.vtext.com/servlets/mms MCC: 311 MNC: 480 APN type: default.mms APN protocol: IPv4 APN roaming protocol: IPv4 However, beware if it stops working to check your APN settings again, because TW may have some… Read more »

None of the above APN settings worked.I could data for only a minute or two at 3g, or calls didn’t work, or text messages didn’t work. I was bringing a t-mobile cdma galaxy s9 to total wireless. Everything works with these settings.

Anyone having MMS issues with a galaxy s10? I can text but no gifs or picture messages

I am having the same issue. Called TW and after 3 calls and a new SIM card, they said it was a “known Samsung issue”.. I called Samsung support and they said they didn’t have any record of this problem. They stepped me through a couple of things and as a last resort, said I might have to so a factory reset. I had pointed out during my first call with TW that none of the APN ports were set, etc. I’m trying these settings and so far haven’t had any luck. I can still only send text only.

Might be the wrong place for it, but I’m curious if anyone is using a Verizon Note 8 on TW, and able to use the wifi hotspot feature?

I have a Samsung Note 9. Was on Verizon Wireless on Android 8.1 Oreo. I just upgraded to Pie yesterday and I no longer have MMS. Can’t send or receive picture messages. When I make a phone call 4g disappears and I believe I am switched to another network for calling as signal strength drops on calls. Could be part of the reason MMS doesnt work. I keep seeing all these different APN settings and nothing seems to change things for me. I even put http://mms.vtext.com/servlets/mms in the MMSC portion of the APN. Not sure what other settings I could… Read more »

Brother use this for Note9. Just tested it and it works. The store gave me a sim card and he said that it was a Verizon sim card but the first two letters are TFxxxx…try it.

Just an FYI to anyone else trying every suggestion they can find…I tried the settings suggested here by Mike Walla, on my Note8, said it worked for his Note 9, I figured why not, nothing else has worked. I tried it with and without the “MMSC:…” line.
Mobile Data: works
Text: works
MMS: still doesn’t work.

Update: Downloaded the Verizon Messages App (as I’ve seen others suggest) and made it my default messaging app. Made sure WiFi was Off. Used the below settings…
APN: Tracfone.vzwentp
MMSC: http://mms.vtext.com/servlets/mms

Success, was able to send and receive MMS messages.

You can see my phone/issues in the comments below, just wanted to leave a note that I tried the Straight Talk APN in the comments on that page, and it worked for me (Samsung Galaxy S9).

Galaxy S9, bought on Amazon. I have called T-Mobile to check the IMEI, they say it is clear, and it comes up clear on various websites I looked on. I bought the BYOD Sim card, installed it and had my son activate with Total Wireless. He thought everything was working for a few hours, but discovered when he left the house he could not access data. When he came home, and used WiFi, everything was fine. We have tried many different things to resolve this, including a different sim card (from Verizon), and multiple network resets while working with Total… Read more »

Hi, new to Total Wireless. Internet only works if I am connected to a wifi. No issues with texting, solely the internet. Please help as I’m trying to force myself from factory resetting (will that even solve issue?)

Hi, I have a new Note 8 unlocked and am having trouble getting LTE and Picture texting to work together. IF I configure APN to vzwinternet I can MMS but only 3G data…..IF I use tracfone.vzwentp I can get 4G LTE data but no MMS. Any ideas would be appreciated….after multiple go arounds with tatal wireless support no help there.

Hey Bill – did you ever get this working? I have a note8 and I’m having the same trouble. Can’t seem to get anything but 3G sitting in the same locations where I had LTE service while on Verizon. Would love any advice! Thanks!Renae
