Straight Talk APN Settings for Android Phones [Beginners’ Guide]

Apologies on the two APN posts in one afternoon, but we wanted to get them out of the way and into the Beginners’ Guide.

If you aren’t on Aio Wireless and instead went with Straight Talk, we also have APN settings for you as well. Below, you’ll find the official settings pulled from Straight Talk’s site for both AT&T and T-Mobile service, though if you venture into a variety of forums across this wonderful internet, you are bound to find tweaked settings that one user or another claim bring even better performance.

I would suggest that you start with these, and should you run into issues, start tweaking or looking elsewhere. But again, these are the official settings. 

Instructions

1.  APN settings are accessed on phones in somewhat different locations depending on the phone manufacturer.

Samsung phone:  Settings>…More networks>Mobile networks>Access Point Names>+
HTC phone:  Settings>Mobile data>Access point names>Menu>New APN.
Motorola phone:  Settings>More…>Mobile networks>Access Point Names>Menu>New APN.
Nexus phone:  Settings>More…>Mobile networks>Access Point Names>Menu>New APN.
LG phone:  Settings>Tethering & networks>Mobile networks>Access point names.
