This guide explains how to look up the APN settings for your Net10 Bring Your Own Phone (BYOP) phone. You need to set the correct APN settings in your phone for your cellular data, MMS picture messages, and group texts to work properly. While Net10 has many pages on their web site documenting their different APN settings, they actually have a web site where you can look up the APN settings for your phone number. Follow the steps below to look up your Net10 APN settings.
This instructions and this Net10 website works with Net10 BYOP phones using Net10’s ATT and TMobile networks. The Net10 website does not work for BYOP Verizon or Sprint phones using Net10’s Verizon or Sprint CDMA networks. The web site doesn’t always work for phones purchased from Net10 either. I’ll add a link here after I write an article for those using Net10 phones and BYOP CDMA phones.
While you can lookup your APN using the browser on your mobile phone, the web site is easier to read on a computer or tablet.
- From your web browser, www.net10.com/byop_apn/index.jsp
- Enter your 10 digit phone number
- From Device Type or Operating System, Choose Android 4.0 & Later
- Click or Tap Search
For most people, your phone will use one of three different sets of APN settings. Look in the bottom left corner of the webpage to see your settings. Your APN should be one of the following:
wap.tracfone. See below.
To set up your APN, you usually need to enter these APN Settings into the APN settings page on your smartphone. Note, that the APN settings field names listed here, won’t exactly match the APN Settings field names on your smartphone. Check out the steps in one of Smartphonematters APN Settings Guides or APN Settings Help.
If the web page, did not return any APN settings for you, your account may not met the conditions I described earlier. That is, you are using a phone purchased from Net10 or using a BYOP Verizon or Sprint phone on Net10’s CDMA network. In that case, leave a comment for help.
In some rare cases, you might find your APN is something other than
wap.tracfone. In that case, leave a comment with your APN settings for help.
