    I put my pre-paid AT&T sim card into a new AT&T Pre-Paid Fusion Android phone and copied down the APN settings.

    I then moved the pre-paid sim card, and transcribed the settings, to an AT&T Samsung Captivate Glide a post-paid
    phone I purchased at Amazone Wireless without a contract. And everything works! I have 4G, text and MMS.

    Here are the settings: (case sensitive as indicated)
    Name
    myatt
    APN
    WAP.CINGULAR
    Proxy
    wireless.cingular.com
    Port
    80
    Username (Note the inclusion of a period between R & G)
    WAP@CINGULAR.GPRS.COM
    Password (Note the change to lowercase)
    cingular1
    Server

    MMSC
    http://mmsc.cingular.com
    MMS proxy
    wireless.cingular.com
    MMS port
    80
    MCC
    310
    MNC
    410
    Authentication type
    None
    APN type
    default,mms,supl
    APN protocol
    IPv4

    In the phones there is a second APN called BROADBAND but
    it is empty of any settings.
    I could not modify the setting in the Samsung so I just
    created a new one (hence “myatt”) and selected it for use.
    I also turned the phone off and back on to get it to ‘take.’
    I am waiting to see if “The Man” comes knocking on my door some day. :-)

    Presently with pre-paid service I keep it off unless needed
    and then turn it back off. Using Wi-Fi as much as possible.

    CHeers!

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Note running ICS which will not send a MMS. I used the AT&T APN setting you suggested, however, I cannot live APN Type blank. I can only select “Internet+MMS”, “Internet” or “MMS”. I checked “MMS” (since data plan is through a WiFi device). I still cannot send a MMS. What now?

  • justin

    Hey please help me I got a verizon 4/ lte I put my at&t sim vard in it and it works but I can’t get my internet to work please jelp?

  • erin

    Some of the things that I noticed when trying all of these APNs the OP is only missing (APN TYPE) you need to put default, first in order to get it to work. also you can consolidate them all to one APN just put everything together under APN TYPE and start with default,internet,mms,supl. hope this helps. I use these settings on my sprint s4 with prepay att sim and everything works fine using one APN with everything consolidated together.

  • mark

    Tried the settings for the 4g lte phone. called the access point wap.cingular. All except mms worked fine. (why we’re here!)

    Put in APN type internet as written; the access point flips back to the att.phone one that came with the phone. Back to quick battery drain on LTE. :(

    Erin’s post talks about all APN types added, which is what the factory APN has in it. Am thinking if I try this, will just keep flipping back to factory access point on LTE.

    HPSA didn’t drain the battery as fast, so would setting the APN to the cingular settings keep me on the HPSA and allow texts to be received?

    This is way above my head and comfort zone, but 6 hours battery isn’t good either.(I do understand dead phone though) LOL!!

  • Deb

  • Phil

    This worked for me, but a question: why isn’t this the stock setting? Seems like they would want it to work out of the box.

  • Michael Pryor

    Hi
    in regards to a factory unlocked phone by Brand name called Oppo Find 7 US VERSION. its listed and in every descriptions it sats its a 4g LTE compatible phone, but what i have learned from people on Oppo Forum that all the APN settings/ MMs settings out of box is totally wrong, and when i called the local wireless provider ATT they don’t really a big help since its not an att product. in order to assist with the correct settings for this device t work on 4G LTE Network and also to display this on the phone it self. would be appreciated for any helpful info. Thank u

  • Michael Pryor

    since it worked for u, can u please share with me if u don’t mind in details what settings did u use/ for att/
