Additional Notes

What are APN Settings

Access Point Name or APN settings tell your smartphone how to connect to the Internet and send messages. If your APN is not set correctly, you may not be able to connect to the Internet using Cellular Data, Send or Receive MMS picture messages, or Send or Receive Group Text Messages

APN Settings will NOT fix problems making phone calls, sending text messages, get a 2G, 3G, 4G, or LTE connection.

Which APN settings Should I Use?

You can look up the APN settings for your Tracfone account here: Looking Up the APN Settings For Your Tracfone Wireless Bring Your Own Smartphone Account.
Note: This only seems to work for Tracfone customers using the Tracfone AT&T or T-Mobile network. If you are using Tracfone’s Verizon network, try the APN settings above.

Your APN Settings May Be Hidden

On some smartphones, you may not be able to see the APN settings page in your phone’s settings app.  For most phones using Tracfone’s Verizon or Sprint Networks the APN page is hidden but the should be set automatically. For Tracfone’s AT&T network, the APN settings on the iPhone are hidden.

You May Not Be Able To Edit or Delete the APN Settings On Your Phone

Some Android phones will not let you edit or delete your APN settings regardless of which network you are using.
