Setting Up APN for Android

Let me help you set up your PureTalk APN settings for Android. Follow these simple steps, and your device will be connected to PureTalk in no time.

Step 1. First things first, go to your Android phone’s settings menu.

Step 2. Look for Wireless & Networks or tap the Connections tab.

Step 3. Then, touch the Mobile Network. Depending on your device, you might need to tap More settings, More…, or More Networks first.

Step 4. Once you’re in the Mobile network settings, you’d want to look for Access Point Names.

Step 5. Touch the PureTalk APN if available. If not, don’t worry! Hit the Menu key or the plus sign (+) and choose New APN.

Now, we’ll need to update some of the settings for the APN. Here are the values you should enter:

MMS Proxyproxy.mobile.att.net
MMS Port80
Authentication Typenone
APN Typedefault, mms, supl
APN ProtocolIPv4
Mobile Virtual Network Operator

Other values are empty, as they’re not needed for PureTalk settings. Once you’ve entered the information, don’t forget to save the new APN by tapping the menu key and selecting Save.

That’s it! You’re all set to use your Android device with PureTalk’s network. Enjoy your connection!
