What Are the T Mobile LTE Bands
T Mobile is one of the strongest and most popular networks in the United States, among all other great networks. T mobile prides itself on the amount of connectivity towers that ensure its customers get the best connection possible. However, like many great things, you may run into some issues getting that great connectivity. If you’re a customer whose T Mobile 4G LTE isn’t working, see below for some helpful tips that could get you the connectivity you need!
First and foremost, it is imperative to ensure your APN settings match exactly to the information listed below. Be sure to type in all the formulas exactly to match what’s listed, if there is a space or extra punctuation where it’s not supposed to be, the connection will fail.
How to Get to Your APN Settings
In order to connect to your T Mobile APN 4G LTE settings, start by getting to your Settings App (which can be found under ‘APPS’). From this screen, you will click on the Networks tab and select More under Connectivity. From here, you will select Mobile Networks and then Access Point Names.
From there, you will select the T Mobile US APN bullet point (If this doesn’t exist on your page you will need to create it by selecting Menu then New APN).
Next, be sure the following data exactly matches your Data APN settings.
- Name: T-Mobile US LTE
- APN: fast.t-mobile.com
- Proxy: Not set
- Port: Not set
- Username: Not set
- Password: Not set
- Server: Not set
- MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
- MMS Proxy: Not set
- MMS Port: Not set
- MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0
- MCC: 310
- MNC: 260
- Authentication Type: Not set
- APN Protocol: IPv4/IPv6
- APN Roaming Protocol: IPv4
- Enable/Disable APN: (If there isn’t multiple APNS this will be greyed out)
- Bearer: Unspecified
Once all of the above information is inputted, it may be wise to double check your work to ensure everything is listed correctly. Once the formulas are added, be to tap the Menu button and click Save, to save your changes. When this is saved, be sure to go back to the Access Point Names page and click on the APN bullet point that has the updated information. You will know which APN button you’re using because it will light up with the color green.
If you’re looking to connect to a network selection manually, there is a slightly different and easier way of doing this. This option allows your phone to connect and register to a wireless network in a T Mobile calling area. If you are part of a roaming network, you won’t be able to connect this way as you will be restricted to a T Mobile SIM card.
In order to connect manually, go to your Settings App and select Networks tab. When you reach a page that says Connectivity, select the option that says More. From there you will click Mobile Networks, Network Operators, and Search Networks. Once you’ve selected the last button, you will be prompted to read and review a message, select YES once you’ve reviewed the message. Your phone will then start searching for networks which will take a few minutes. Once the list pops up, select a network you’d like to connect to and you will be registered onto that network!
