This article show you how to set the Straight Talk Wireless wap.tracfone APN on your Google Nexus 5 with Android 5 also known as Lollipop. My Nexus 5 was using the Android 5.1.1 when I wrote this article.
Your Nexus 5 might work automatically when you put your Straight Talk TMobile compatible SIM card in the phone. It might automatically set the APN to wap.tracfone and adde the other settings. You might be able to use cellular data as well as send and receive picture messages and group texts. But if your phone is not working, or you looked up your APN and its wap.tracfone, follow the steps below to add a new APN to your phone. If you haven’t looked up your APN first, see Setting Your Straight Talk Wireless’ APN on your Google Nexus 5 with Android 5 (Lollipop)
- Tap App Drawer
Swipe to right to find Settings if needed.
- Tap Settings
- Under Wireless & Networks, tap …More
- Tap Cell networks
- Tap Access Point Names
- Tap Add (circle plus)
- Tap Name
Straight Talk waptracfone, tap OK
The name you enter here can be any value. It’s just the name displayed in the APNs screen.
- Tap APN
- Tap Port
- Tap MMSC
- Tap APN type
- Tap Save
Save is under menu (three vertical dots). After returning to APNs, make sure the APN you just created is active (has the dot to the right of the name)
After setting your APN I suggest you check out, or return to Setting Your Straight Talk Wireless’ APN on your Google Nexus 5 with Android 5 (Lollipop) for additional information about making sure your APN is working properly.
