How to use APN


The first thing you'll need to do is find the right APN settings for the network you want to use. For example below are the APN settings for Straight Talk.
Name- straight talk
APN-tfdata
Port-80
MMSC-http://mms-tf.net
MMS Proxy-mms3.tracfone.com
MMS Port-80
Once you have all this information, grab your phone. Settings>wireless/network settings. More options>mobile networks.
Once you found mobile network settings, rest will be the same on all devices. Look for "Access Point Names" then tap on it.
You should see a list with at least one APN. Add new.
This is where you will enter the settings you got from your carriers website. 2 very important things here:
    1.Not every setting in the "edit access point" screen will need filled in.
    2.Be sure to type in everything exactly as provided by your carrier. Once you have settings provided by your carrier entered, you need to save the APN. You do that by pressing the 3 dots in upper right and selecting "save" option.
    Once your APN information is saved, go back one screen to the list we saw earlier. On this screen, tap the new APN settings you just entered to make active.
