    Cannot send mms via email and all the apn settings are as listed for android 4.4. Are there different settings for 5.0.1 that is what my device is?

    1. Best bet would be to contact our support team by emailing at help@usmobile.com or calling 888-878-1488 or reaching us via live chat so we can figure it out for you. The APN for Android 4 and above have been updated now.

    1. Section updated, settings for all Androids 4.x.x and above have been added. If that doesn’t work, please contact the support team and they will help you fix it.

    1. Can you post here what you see in APN settings? I believe APN for Windows 8 should work with 10 as well.

  3. Cara

    For anyone still having problems.. use all of the above settings, but also check the MMS box under APN Type. That’s what worked for me.

    1. Alicia

      This worked for me too. I didn’t have checkboxes under APN type, but I just added mms to the list that was already there, and my MMS started working. Before that, my data was working fine, but not MMS.

      Right now with the phone working, this is what I have under APN type: default,hipri,mms

      I hope this might help somebody!

    I have an Apple IPhone 6, and have tried to setup my internet and texting on the phone. When I’m rapt home, I have no problem with Internet or texting because my home has wifi, but when I’m away from my house–NOTHING. I called customer support a little while ago, and was told to go to the “configuring your internet page”. Well I went there and tried the solution that was suggested to me, and I still don’t have any internet outside of my home….what’s a senior citizen supposed to do?

    1. Hi Sue, Sorry about the delayed response. We had your services checked, they have been re-provisioned and you’re all set from our end. For the settings part, one of our support reps will get in touch with you during business hours to help you walk through APN settings process.

        1. On all our help pages, you may see a small chat widget at the bottom right. Click it and start chat with us 🙂

  5. Christine LeTourneau

    Mine did work with typical directions. After I tapped APN there wasn’t anywhere that said add network. I had to tap my bottom menu button to get it to come up. My phone is prism II. Hope this helps someone! I just assumed on it after angrily tapping anything and everything!

    I have been using US Mobile for 2 months and data worked fine until a week ago. I can’t access internet at all but phone calls still work. I checked my APN settings and they are good.

    1. Sorry for the late reply here Ken. Did you contact CS team via chat/email/phone yet? We can help you in a live environment that way.

  8. Oh my goodness! an incredible article dude. Thanks Nevertheless I am experiencing subject with ur rss . Don’t know why Unable to subscribe to it. Is there anyone getting equivalent rss problem? Anyone who is aware of kindly respond. Thnkx http://regularslots2016.ru

    I have entered all the correct settings and mms still does not work.

    1. Cindy, best bet would be to contact our CS Team by calling at 888-878-1488 so they can assist you in a live environment.

    2. Alicia

      If you haven’t figured this out yet, you might want to try making sure you have “mms” selected or listed under “APN type” in your APN settings.

    I am using IPhone se. I couldn’t use internet after follows all directions. But now I can use internet. You should enter LTE APN : pwg . US mobile add one more step for users of IPhone.

    1. M.M

      Thank you for the comment!!! Now I am able to use LTE!! From iPhone user

  12. The procedure for an iphone at ios9 is out of date. I got it working but some of the instructions don’t make sense. I never did, for instance, find MMS settings. Things are not in the same places as described in the “recipe”. Would be worth having someone do an update.

  13. James

    HTC one M8… new sim allows phone calls but no data, so! trying to set APN – under MOBILE DATA, no GSM/UMTS Options… but under CDMA, Access Point names – Internet (VZWINTERNET) when clicking menu – the only option is RESET TO DEFAULT… no add or other options??? what to do here ? locked against changes ? HELP

    1. James,

      Can you send us screenshots of your APN settings at help@usmobile.com? I think the best way to get this resolved is to contact us directly at 888-878-1488 or by initiating a live chat by clicking chat widget at bottom right of this page.

      Looking forward to talk to you.

  14. Jim Bush

    In your instructions for “Configuring Your Device” using Android 2.2.1 (Froyo) under step number 7 for chosing a Name, you have ” Select T-Mobile Data” where it should apparently say Select US Mobile. This caused some confusion in completing the information. Just want you to know about it.

  15. Joynal Rab

    Just setup BlackBerry Passport with above instructions and we’re good to go! Thanks!

  16. Molly

    The data instructions for Windows 8 & 8.1 just worked perfectly for my Blu Win phone running Windows 10, so I think they’re good for any Windows 10 phone.

  17. Rosco

    How can I send messages without using data. I have an iPhone 5S. Is there a way to send the messages without using data?

    1. Hi Rosco,

      Thank you for contacting US Mobile.

      You can send and receive text messages from your phone and text messages will not consume your data. Kindly turn iMessages off from your phone settings and you should be all set. Please go to Settings > Messages > iMessages (turn it off).

      I hope the above answers your concern.

  18. Rosco

    Which is off on my phone but it still uses data to send mms. Is there a way to send them without using data?

    1. In order to send and receive simple/plain text, you don’t need data. But you can’t send/receive MMS without data services.

  19. creed

    Just put in the sim card in iPhone 7. I didn’t need to do anything on the list of instructions and everything works. Yay technology!

  20. Rosco

    Ok thanks I gues that helps but I was hoping to send them without data

  21. neha

    Hi All, Thought it may help someone so i can say setting of APN given above for me when i setup it exactly its given in article . When i contacted customer care they send me this link for APN setting and its working.

  22. KB

    I just setup my iPhone6s (iOS 10.1), and if you want to use LTE, make sure to set it to “Data Only”. When I set it to “Data + Voice” it stops working (and put it back to data only, it works again). This should be noted in the instructions.
