Re: Unlocked Phone APN Settings

Hi Bruce, one of the unlock policy's att has is that you need to USE that phone with the specific account that you're requesting the unlock for at least 6 months, now if you need your phone unlocked a third party company can unlock it for you, of course in exchange of an amount of money.

Re: Unlocked Phone APN Settings

I have been searching forever for the APN settings that would allow me to get and receive photos in my text messages. NET10 (my provider, though I use an AT&T phone) was no help at all. I got different settings from different customer service reps. Your settings jogged something in my head. I was told I HAD to have the same thing in both Ports (80). Then I saw the APN Type that you had. NET10 customer service NEVER provided anything for this. I was ready to try your settings even though my phone is an AT&T Radiant (and NET10 provider), when the light bulb finally went off in my head - DUH!!  Look at my boyfriend's phone and try HIS settings!!!!  While he has an LG phone, we are on the same plan with NET10. I thought the settings were dependent on the provider AND the type of phone. This may not be the case, cuz VIOLA!!!!   I used his settings and I now get internet (which I COULD get before) AND also, FINALLY, I can send and receive photos in my text messages!!!!!  Something so darn simple, yet I spent days on this!!  Here's my info. I hope it can help someone else (thanks again for the inspiration!!!!):

 

AT&T Radiant phone, 4G, Android.   NET10 Provider.

APN Settings are:

Name: Net10 (it appears this name doesn't matter. It can be whatever you want it to be)

APN: tfdata

Proxy: not set

Port: not set  ( NET 10 said this had to be 80, same as the MMS proxy. Well, apparently NOT!!)

User name: not set

Password: not set

Server: not set

MMSC: http://mms-tf.net

MMS proxy: mms3.tracfone.com

MMS Port: 80

MCC: 310

MNC: 410

Authentication Type: none

APN Type: default,mms,supl

[APN is enabled, in grey here, done in the step or two before you actually get into these settings]

Bearer: unspecified

 

I hope this helps someone else!!!  Thanks for the info. This site is incredible!

Re: Unlocked Phone APN Settings

Forgot to mention, my AT&T Radiant is a "Go Phone", but again, my provider is NET 10 (for NOW).  I am not sure if having a Go Phone that is truely prepaid would need different settings or not.  Thanks again!
