    I created a new APN and entered all the above info except for Authentication type because the only options were None, PAP, CHAP and PAP OR CHAP so I left it blank. Saved and restarted my phone (Samsung J3) but it still is not working. This is very frustrating!

      Hi Susan, it is not working at all, means you cannot browse any website… do you see the data icon shown up on your screen e.g. 3G, E, etc.

      • PapaC

        I have the same options for Authentication.

          Hi PapaC… you are not able to get a connection? do you see the 3g, H or 4g icon?

        I can browse internet. I can send photos through email and messenger, just not texting. My phone is a Samsung J3 that was an AT&T Go Phone new in box. Consumer just supplied the chip.

          We are having the same issues as Susan with a different Android phone. Browsing, sending photos all other methods except cannot text a photo.

          What is the resolution?

          • apnsettings

            which app are you using to text photos?

    I have “no service” showing there, however I am connected to my WIFI, no 4g, 3g.

    Even though there is no service, once in a while I get an email update.
    I have created a NEW APN, still no SERVICE.

      Hi, if it says no service, it means you wont even get voice calls… is your sim card active? seems like you either your sim is not active or you are out of coverage
