How to Add the correct Cricket APN Settings on my phone?
There are two ways you can add the settings to your phone:
How to add Cricket apn settings
First and easier option is, once you insert the sim card on the phone and activate the service (enable the mobile data on the phone and connect to the network), you will normally receive two messages from cricket, containing some configuration for Data (internet) and MMS (picture or video messaging) settings. If you receive them, just open the messages and Install them on the phone
In case you missed the notification when the messages arrived, you can try to find them in the messages folder in the phone, open them and install
Second and manual option would be going into the APN Menu and add the corresponding settings to the phone:
On your android phone, go the Settings menu then Tab on Mobile Networks, then Tab on Access Point Names
Tab on the menu button and Add a New APN. If you already have one listed, you can tab on edit.
Enter this following information:
MMS Proxy: proxy.Cricketwireless.net
APN type: default,mms,supl for some Samsung devices select Internet+MMS
Please pay special care on typing in the proper commas and dots, as they need to be entered exactly as they appear. The APN type is very important so that you can use the picture and video messaging services on cricket
One you’re done, save the settings and exit. You should see a small icon on the upper right corner of the phone with a LTE, 4G or H+ sign indicating a proper connection has been established, pls open a browser and try loading some websites
