Straight talk apn Settings – Choose your service provider:

Name: straight talk
APN: tfdata
MMS proxy:
MMS port: 80
MCC: 310
MNC: 410

You don’t need to setup a username nor password.

Straight Talk T-Mobile service

For those folks running on T-Mobile, please us these:

Name: straight talk

APN: wap.tracfone

Port: 8080


MMS Proxy:  Leave blank

MMS Port: Leave blank

Again, for user name and password leave it in blank

How to enter these straight talk apn settings in your phone:

  1. If you have an Android phone: Settings>More>Mobile networks>Access Point Names>Menu>.  You can also watch this Youtube video for step by step guide:
  2. If you have an iPhone or iPad:  Setup > General > Network > Mobile Data
  3. Delete any existing APN you have in the phone, then reboot it
  4. Go back to the APN Settings menu and Enter The corresponding Straight Talk APN Settings listed above
  5. Save the settings and reboot the phone again
  6. You should now be able to browse the internet and send or receive mms in your straight talk

What happens if I cannot send or receive MMS in the Straight Talk Phone?

OK, this is a pretty common issue we have seen that many people are facing.  If after properly configuring the above APN Settings you are still not able to send or receive MMS messages in your straight talk phone, then please try this:

Install one of these applications and try (Textra, Chomp SMS, Handcent, Go SMS Pro)

Check which is your default SMS app in your phone.  Go to Settings>More>Default SMS App, from there try to switch to the one you downloaded and use it as Default

      • Brady Shelton

        What’s is your straight talk phone is with Verizon and not atat or tmobile. Because I went to straight talk and tried to do the apn change but when I put my number in it said I wasn’t even registered in straight talk witch is a gd lie because I just bought a $55 card and cant even use the mf I’m having to connect to wifi just to try to fix this shit

  5. Morgan

      • Alicia

        How about using my mobile hotspot? Is there an APN setting that will allow me to use it? Because I can’t right now even though I should be able to with my unlimited plan.

  6. Kat

    So I have a galaxy s6 I just activate with byop on straight talk. It’s a verizon phone. The Internet is not working and won’t let me send picture messages.

    • apnsettings

      Hi Kat, which version of the APN did you enter?

  7. Cameron

    I am using a sims card from the straight talk activation kit. I am able to send messages and recurve them. I can also send picture messages, but when I try to use the Internet or any data it says I’m not subscribed to a cellular data service. Help! It’s an iPhone 5s, Verizon carrier

    • apnsettings

      Hi Cameron, sending and receiving messages do not require a data plan, while using the internet does. can you confirm you have an active data plan? if you havent subscribed to any straight talk data plan, then you will receive this kind of message

    • Crystal Justice

    You don’t mention the set-up for Verizon network Straight Talk phones.

    • apnsettings

      Hi Roger, it’s in a different post, just do a quick search on the site and you will find it

    • Kelly

      I have a Samsung j7 phone that I recently purchased from straight talk. and it will not let me add these APN settings . It only allows me to put TracFone data in APN. has Verizon listed as the name and will not allow me to remove it. Please if anyone knows I can’t even make a phone call or send a receive text messages. If anyone has a solution please email me. @ thank you in advance.

  10. Kaya L

    I will be visiting the USA, I bought a sim card to use on my unlocked iphone while I’m in LA, will be visiting till 1st week of May, my question is, if I change the APN, how I change it back as it is now? Will that affect my phone?
    Thank you

    • apnsettings

      Hi Kaya, you can create a New APN and this way you dont have to edit/reomve the exiting ones… once you go back to your country, just go in and select the old one back

      • Joseph Meadows

        How do u create a new apn

        • apnsettings

          when you are on the Access Points Names menu, hit on the options button and ADD NEW

  11. Mason Turner

    How about Verizon? Do you guys have anything for verizon?

    • apnsettings

      Hi Mason, just do a search and you will find the related APN

  12. Jan

    I just got a new IPhone and chose TMobile for my network. Straight talk sent me directons and instructed me to put http://www.mmsc.tracfone in the MMSC field and it didn’t work. What you have listed on your site is correct. It worked when I put http://www.mms.tracfone and I’m glad it did because I was about to return my phone for a refund. Thank you for the correct info!

    • apnsettings

      Hey Jan, glad to know… thats an iPhone you bought from Straight Talk directly or you just bought the sim card?

  13. Ti

    Hi, I just switched from at&t to straight talk and I can’t figure out how to update my apn setting. I have a Samsung Galaxy

    • apnsettings

      Hi Ti, inside the article you should see the steps to configure… go to settings, mobile network and you should see access points names

  14. Shakey

    What about changing your ipv4 to a ipv6 and getting it working for your internet

    • apnsettings

      that fixed the issue for you?

  15. Richard

    Ok guys.i have a Verizon Moto g6 play. Switched to straight talk. They sent me a T-Mobile SIM card. The byop kit had bad Sim card. Now instead of 4g I get an E and drop service. Thanks

  16. John

    Have nothing but a head ach . Verizon Moto g6 play. Switched to straight talk byop plan. Had a bad Sim card you guys sent me a t mobile card. Now my phone does nothing. Can’t seem to get the apn right

    • apnsettings

      can you make phone calls?

  17. Adam

    switched over yesterday text worked but now it is not working. The setting only show old apn and you can not enter in any information

  18. Ray

    Straight talk gave me settings that actually worked. These did not

    • apnsettings

      Hi Ray, which ones are working for you?

  19. Charles

    I recently activated a at&t compatible straight talk Sim card for my Alcatel, but I am still not receiving any data signal what so ever. Can u please help

  20. Nick

    None of this worked. I am a highly tech savvy person, and I can say with confidence that there is no fix for this issue. A person I spoke with who is in the know said that Straight Talk no longer allows MMS.

  21. Fred

    These did not work for me. There is more info that needs to be typed in the following slots:
    Authentication Type: None
    APN type: default,mms,dun
    APN protocol: IPv4/IPv6
    APN roaming protocol: IPv4/IPv6

    This was for the AT&T Network settings. When I changed this after about an hour of trying other things, it instantly started sending about a dozen text messages to my spouse, mom, and others.

  22. Destin Marler

    I recently refilled my straighttalk account with an unlimited data plan for my iPhone 6s with straight talk sims card but I have no data whatsoever. Please help.

  23. Curtis Moore

    So why do I lose data signal everytime I refill my plan? Last time I had to find a new apn to get it back and the customer service phone line is a complete joke and are absolutely no help and seem to have little to no knowledge about cell phones and signals anytime I call, just now I had a young man ask me to change my APN while on the phone with him… so obviously training is a shoot and miss with this company. I just want the data signal that I paid for, without having to go through the trek of replacing my APN each time. Not even the one listed above works.

  24. Danny

    Thank you guys so much this is awesome

  25. Alicia Meeks

    How about using my mobile hotspot? Is there an APN setting that will allow me to use it? Because I can’t right now even though I should be able to with my unlimited plan.

  26. Scott

    My LG Stylo 3 has recently quit receiving and transmitting MMS messages. I tried updated the APN settings to no available. Any help would be appreciated.

  27. Stacie

    So I am able to get regular text messages but can’t send or receive photos through text. Can you provide any help with that?
