Total Wireless APN Settings

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

You need help!  You're not happy with your carrier because they couldn't even do a simple thing like tell you the right APN!  Subscribe to BestMVNO and be happy by getting the latest deals and carrier promotions delivered to your inbox!

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 will 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.

How To Find To Your APN Settings To Change Them

iPhone Settings

APN settings on the iPhone can be difficult to change because in many cases Apple blocks full access to the settings unless you jailbreak and thus hack the phone. For those of you that do have access to the settings they can be found by going to either Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options > Cellular Network OR Settings > Mobile Data > Mobile Data Options > Mobile Data Network. Once there you can either tap to reset settings to default or manually edit them. Alternatively, you can also check for automatic configuration by going to settings" followed by "general" and then "about." If a carrier profile update is available you'll see a notification for it there.

Android APN Settings

If you have an Android device, getting to the settings will vary a bit based on the manufacturer of your device and the version of Android that you have. In general you can access them by going to "settings" then "wireless networks" or something similar like "network & internet" then mobile network and finally Access Point Names. You may want to delete whatever settings are there before attempting to add one of the new ones shown below. You may also first want to try resetting APNs to the defaults by clicking the 3 dot menu and resetting them.

I currently have a Samsung Galaxy S8 active, and to get to my APN settings I must go to "settings" then "connections" followed by "mobile networks" and finally "Access Point Names."

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.

I had the same issue when I switched to Total from Xfinity. Alternative 2 worked for me with setting APN Roaming to IPv4 as well. I have a Samsung Galaxy S9.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S9+, just switched from Xfinity Mobile to Total Wireless. Xfinity provided me with the unlock code and it worked. Transfer went fine until I realized that the data was not working. Called TW and they guided me through setting the APN (2nd set of setting above), the internet worked after that, but still was unable to send/rec MMS in text messaging. I went through all these suggestions to no avail. And now I can’t even make calls, the only thing my phone works with now is Wi-Fi. UGH!! I’ve removed the SIM card, re-installed, restarted… Read more »

I just switched my note 9 from verizon to Total Wireless and everything works except for MMS. I spoke with tech support for both total wireless and samsung and tried every APN setting out there with no luck at all. I even tried using Verizon Messages + like mentioned but would not work either.

I reluctantly did a factory reset on my phone because they said that was all i had left to do but that did not resolve either.

Does anyone have any other possible solutions??

Also, if you want to change your boot logo, input a SIM card for such carrier. For example, my Note9 had a T-Mobile boot logo and would not change after putting in a Total Wireless SIM card. I put in a verizon SIM card to change the boot logo/ROM to verizon’s stock. Then, I put in the Total Wireless SIM card and the Verizon ROM/boot logo has stayed.

Unlocked t-mobile Samsung galaxy s9+, using on total wireless everything is working perfectly fine, except for using internet functions while on calls, I’ve tried everything. I just feel like I’m missing something or can’t find something, volte is enabled, but I’m not able to find call setting that let me control voice and data settings which I am in the understanding volte is voice over lte, but why am I having so much trouble using a simple phone call and searching for something on the net at same time. Btw I am using Verizon messages+ works so much better than… Read more »

This is the FIX for MMS messages not fully working on Samsung Galaxy S9 and perhaps others. There are lots of APN configurations listed below in all of the previous posts. I found that Total Wireless reps and tech support are saying to just create an APN and use any name and put the TRACFONE.VZWENTP and save it and apply it. That does NOT make everything work. My issue was outgoing MMS picture messages just sat there and never completed sending. I downloaded and used the Verizon Messages+ app from the Google Play store as everyone else below did. So… Read more »

Oh my god… it worked. (VZW GS9+)
After I did this, I was even able to go back to the default app and it worked.

Sadly I still don’t have VoLTE or WiFiCalling.
After I did a factory reset and got support from TW, I can’t even see the VoLTE option anymore.
Please let us all know if you find a way.

The key to my success was adding the APN information above AND switching message app from Samsung to Verizon Message+. The Samsung message app would not send MMS or pictures no matter what APN settings.

I have tried all the APNs listed above and still haven’t found one that works for my S9. It is compatible. New sim card. Yes, I double checked it all.
My phone is able to do everything but send SMS and MMS. Any other updates.

What about if you are using calling/ the phone and want to surf the net. Can you take a screen shot if your apn settings please I got the messages mms issue fixed by using Verizon’s messages+ but the horrible call and surf issue is still a horrifying pain.

I’ll have to update this. The MMSC needs to be set to https://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: https://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 »

do you have any issue with your S9 on Total with VoLTE (Can you make a call and still have LTE data at same time) my S9 goes to 1x when makes calls, can’t figure it out. TW says its a phone issue, Samsung says it is a carrier issue

Joe….Mine started doing this exact issue about 2 weeks ago. I have been with total wireless for 3 years with no issues. Had my S9 Plus for 6 months with no issues up until 2 weeks ago. I can not be on data on web and make call at same time. Switches from 4G to 1x during call. In settings…advanced calling does not give me option to turn on and off, only says activate. 4 times I have chatted with TW and they do something on their end and my phone works again with VoLTE and then a day or… 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.
