What Are APN Settings?

APN stands for Access Point Name; this is the setting used to connect your carrier’s data network to your phone. The APN settings are also used to connect your phone to the public internet. Most of the connectivity is up to our carrier’s network, however, it is up to us to ensure we have the right settings they can connect to. This is to make sure we are set up with the right settings for the network we need, our carrier will then use these settings as a doorway and determine the right IP address for our phones or other internet capable devices.

These settings are typically provided by your carrier, however, if you are still having trouble connecting, you can read on or Google how to find your APN settings for your carrier. Large name brand networks such as Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon typically offer default APN settings which will ensure your phone is connected right away. If you are using any other network or an MVNO network, you will likely need to input and update your settings manually.
