    I tried both the 3G and 4G settings, but neither worked for me. I’m using an HTC Inspire 4G. FWIW, the above instructions indicate the ‘APN Protocol’ and ‘Bearer’ fields should be left to the default value, however my phone does not include either of these fields, so I wouldn’t be able to edit them regardless.

    Need apn for sharp fx plus unlocked for att network

      Thanks for the reply Kim! We will try to get back to you as fast as possible

    • apnsettings

      Hi Kim thanks for the patience we still looking for a way to get to the apna you needed.

      Our best guess is July 2031. It does take considerable amount of time and data to calculate the correct settings.

      Thank you for your patience!

    I called AT&T support 4 times and all they could come up with finally was that I needed to reset my phone! I used these APN settings and my phone is back on working correctly.

    Lifesaver! So for months I have been using the 3G settings on my Verizon Note 3, completely unaware there were separate settings for 4G (H+)! I was having a hell of a time sending MMS, etc! Thanks! Have my babies?

  5. Peter

    Thanks so much for doing what even ATT tech couldn’t do! Motorola Moto X is back online after OTA Android update “broke” it.

  6. David

    Setting up APN worked. Hours on the phone and numerous trips to AT&T store and they said we had to buy new phone. Set up new APN’s as above and MMS & internet now both work just ducky. Thanks

    • apnsettings

  12. JerryP

    I set bearer to LTE. It seems to work great with my Galaxy S4. Is there a preferred reason to leave it “unspecified”?

    • apnsettings

      Hi Jerry, there is no special reason. you can keep it as you have it.

  13. SeanDelevan

    2 Questions.

    Stupid question 1 –

    Are there spaces in this field?
    APN type: default,supl,mms,hipri

    Question 2 – I only have a choice of UNSPECIFIED for bearer. Should I leave it that way?

    • apnsettings

      Hi Sean, there is no space, but it should be a selection and not something you write… you can leave the unspecified, should be OK.

  14. Dan

    Are these the same settings one would use for an international phone?

    • apnsettings

      Yes Dan, as long as you are connecting to the att service

    Omg this was a life saver! I’ve had a galaxy s3 for so long but its Verizon and my sim is for AT&T, but it was unlocked yet I couldn’t get data into right now. I am so happy I found this, I usually don’t try things like this because I’m scared it will mess up my phone but I am so glad I did. I also don’t leave comments but this deserved it.
