NET10 is a Wireless service provider. They provide wireless services that are prepaid. They don’t have any contracts, so you can change your plan or your phone whenever you’d like without penalty.
If you’ve been experiencing issues with your reception on your NET10 internet service or your reception, then you want to look to ensure your NET10 APN settings are set up correctly. Setting up the NET10 APN will only take a few minutes. Once your NET10 data settings and your NET10 LTE APN have been properly set up, your NET10 MMS settings and your internet will work better. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that the setup differs when it comes to the type of device you have and what network it uses.
The acronym APN stands for Access Point Name. APNs act as a kind of password that will allow your phone to connect to the NET 10 internet, access roaming, and use LTE.
As you set up your NET10 APN, NET10 will look at your information to determine what type of connection you should have for your mobile phone. The things that they consider include what IP address should be given to your phone, whether your phone should be connected through a private customer network, and what security method is best for your phone.
There are different APN settings that are applied to different mobile devices. Your APN settings are presented as text fields that should be filled in so that they connect to networks and the internet. The settings need to be done in a particular way so that your phone can receive and broadcast frequencies from your carrier. NET10 receives frequencies from both the T-Mobile and AT&T networks.
How to Set Up My NET10 APN?
When you’re setting up your NET10 AT&T APN settings, the first step you take is going to your “Apps” icon. From there, go to your “settings” and then to “more.” Next, you’ll go to “Mobile networks” and then to “Access Point Names. ” You’ll then go to “Menu” where you’ll find what you need. You’ll do the same if your phone uses T-Mobile service.
If you’re using an iPad or iPhone and want to access the APN settings, go to “Setup” then “General,” “Network,” and finally go to “Mobile Data.”

If the phone you have is running on the AT&T network, then you need to enter what follows into your APN settings:
- Name: net10
- APN: tfdata
- MMSC: http://MMS-tf.net
- MMS proxy: MMS3.tracfone.com
- MMS port: 80
For the remaining fields in the settings, leave them blank.

Why Do You Need APNs Setup?
You want to check that your NET10 APN settings are correctly set up so that you can access all of your NET10 features. The values that you have to fill in for your APN for NET 10 include username, name, server, password, etc. The values only work for the country that the network is in, meaning that NET10 APN only works in the United States.
Hidden APN Settings
There are some mobile phones that don’t have the APN settings in the place that you expect them. There are a few NET10 phones that use the Sprint and Verizon networks that have the APN page hidden. In these cases, the NET10 APN settings are automatically set. For iPhones on NET10 that use AT&T’s network, the APN page will also be hidden.
Deleting and Editing APN Settings On Certain Phones
For NET10 APN, there are some android phones that will not allow you to delete or edit your settings despite the network you’re using.
NET10 APN Settings for Android/NET10 APN Settings for iPhone
Since NET10 offers both T-Mobile and AT&T service, you’ll want to match your service to the carrier that provides you that service. Doing this will correct any issues you may be experiencing when connecting to the web and send and receive text messages and MMS on NET10. It’s important to remember that the APN setups for NET10 differ depending on whether you have an iPhone or an Android.
Manual Network Selection
Your smartphone should be able to detect a wireless network and connect to those nearby. In cases where you’re unable to roam, you can manually choose your network. You can manually choose a network for NET10 devices by going to the “Apps” icon on your home screen. After that, you can go to your “settings,” “Network Connection,” and then “mobile networks.” Finally, you’ll need to go to “network operators” and “search now.”
Turn On/Off Airplane Mode
When you want to turn off your wireless capabilities, you need to go to turn on airplane mode. Turning on airplane mode means that you’ll be able to use apps that don’t require a network connection, but you won’t be able to access the internet or use voice commands. Newer smartphones have airplane mode located on a drop-down menu on their displays. Those who don’t have that option, you can manually turn on your airplane mode a different way.
Like with all other processes, you’ll start on your phone’s home screen. From there you’ll go to your “apps,” “settings,” and then “Network Connection.” There you’ll find “airplane mode” where you can turn the function “on” and “off” with the slide of a finger or the push of a button.
Turn On/Off Mobile Data
Your NET10 data settings turn on like many other functions. You go to your “apps” icon on your home screen and then “settings.” From there, you’ll find “Network Connections” and, finally, “mobile networks.” On “mobile networks,” you’ll be able to turn on your data connection and turn it off when you need to.
When you set up your NET10 APN settings, you’ll be able to ensure everything turns out the way you want. Just ensure that you set up everything exactly as it’s shown. When something is capitalized, make sure it stays capitalized. Makes sure no spaces or commas are added. If these aren’t configured correctly then your internet and NET10 MMS settings won’t function correctly.
Before starting the process, be sure to delete any APN that already exists to avoid any conflicts. After that, reboot your phone. Enter the values that have been given, ensuring that you’re doing it for the right carrier. Save your settings and reboot your phone one more time. Your network connection should work better after that.
