If you are getting connection errors in your VZW network android phone because of a messed up APN settings or if you are using an unlocked phone on a carrier overseas then you have to input the appropriate APN settings into the device so that it knows how to access the internet. Here I’m listing out these APN settings for VZW.

Verizon Wireless 4G LTE APN Settings & Verizon MMS Settings for Android phones( Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia, HTC One )
Listed below are the Verizon Wireless 4G APN Samsung Galaxy S4, Verizon Wireless 4G APN Settings for Unlocked Phones, Verizon Wireless 4G APN Settings For Sony Xperia and Verizon Wireless 4G APN Settings For HTC and other android devices.
Here are the steps to follow:
- Open the Settings.
- Select Wireless & Networks.
- Select Mobile Networks.
- Select Access Point Names.
- Tap the three dots (or More..) at the bottom right and select New APN.
- Now enter the information for each field from the list of Verizon APN settings shown below.
- Name: Verizon
- APN: internet or vzwinternet
- Proxy: blank
- Port: blank
- Username: blank
- Password: blank
- Server: blank
- MMSC: http://mms.vtext.com/servlets/mms
- MMS Proxy: blank
- MMS Port: 80
- MCC: 310
- MNC: 012
- Authentication type: not set
- APN Type: internet + mms
On the fields which say blank, you don’t need to put anything there just leave it blank. After entering the settings and saving it, you need to select the new “Verizon APN” you have created. That’s it wait some minutes (or better restart your phone) and it will be working fine now. :)
Update on Verizon APN:
We are trying to find all the latest working apn’s of Verizon and will update this article as we get more info.
As Les suggested, in the comment below you might also try using the apn TRACFONE.VZWENTP if the above settings didn’t work for you.

Will this work on a at unlocked galaxy s2 skyrocket phone?
Does creating this new APN mean that I will automatically receive MMS, without needing to manually turn my mobile data on?
Didn’t work. I have to download and run an app that only works in root to use to even get to my apn settings. Anyone know how to fix this on a Verizon Note 3 ?
This worked like a charm!!
Have Verizon Samsung galaxy 4g LTE s3 which is unlocked to prepaid. APNsettings somehow erased and i cannot seem to access full aAPNsetting. Only allows me to change APN but cannot set port or proxy and apn type. Any solutions please.I only was allowedto use internet anyway but thats all i need. Thanx
You can only change the APN Name. Make it: TRACFONE.VZWENT and you should get 4GLte.
Rob. . . THANK YOU!!! This worked. My goodness. Thank you.
Will thiswork on a pantech p8010 unlocked
This doesn’t work on the S6, they have done something to make it unable to add Apn
I have the Samsung Galaxy S4 4G CDMA LTE. I purchased it through the new Smart Pay program through Straighttalk. I have no data and can’t receive/send MMS messages. Straighttalk has tried to fix this and can’t seem to figure it out. I’m denied access to my APN settings. I read where you can download an App that will backup APN setting and then delete them to set them to what you want. I can’t download that b/c my phone is an Android 5.0.1 and they don’t allow downloads from 3rd party. I’m at a total loss as what to do. Can anyone Please help me?!!?
samsung galaxy s4, Went threw 3 phones from smartpay.
With the verizon service, had no data.
Just found something that worked for me.
Only thing I was able to change in my APN settings was the APN name
All Caps TRACFONE.VZWENTP
That worked for me……
Hoped that helps..
Thanks Les. :)
I’m sure a lot of people will be benefited from this. We have updated the article with the apn you have shared.
To Kari, it sounds like you need to have your phone unlocked. I paid a company on the Internet to unlock mine for $25.00.
CANNOT add via samsung note 4: greyed out option
Les you are a life saver man.. thanks it worked immediately.
Les you are a life saver! I took me almost 2 hours to fix my galaxy s5 because I accidentally erased the apn. I tried every apn i could find and finally I scrolled across this site and your advice! Thanks again
A great app to create direct shortcuts to settings like APNs and other hidden menus is Anycut (the one with the mushroom icon). It is the only way I am able to access APN settings on my Droid Bionic for Straight Talk. Even though they say APN settings aren’t necessary because I used the CDMA Network Access Code, it is the only thing that enabled LTE for me.. Only thing is I can’t send or “download” MMS messages, which is what led me here.
Thanks for sharing the app, Lisa. Hope you were able to fix your MMS issue as well. Cheers.
Did you ever figure out how to get this phone to add and edit APN? Verizon note 4 won’t let you. Grayed out.
I have a galaxy s4 will not retrieve e-mails or download pictures on text messages? What should I do?
When using the TRACFONE.VZWENTP apn, do you fill in the rest the same? I am having trouble setting up a BLU Advance 5.0 unlocked with Verizon. Thanks.
thanks for the assist. i could only edit, not create an apn on rooted droid maxx on Straight Talk
I had these backed up but didn’t find it till i read your article.
You should consider an article author date perhaps?
Still experimenting with whether port 80 is required
I have been dealing with nomessages coming or going nd data not working. I have a 4GLTE through TRACFONE on the Verizon network with Safelink. None of these 3 carriers know whats wrong. This is a brand new phone, i have tried everything. Nothing has worked. Any suggestions???
So what would be the full steps to get a Sprint Noted Edge to work on Verizon service??
Apparently VZW has turned off the apn change option in many devices??. The info is grayed out or unavailable.
To overcome this problem these phones need to be rooted and then perform a simple operation to enable the change.
Rooting looks & sounds more scary than it is?, although it’s VERY important to learn about it BEFORE trying to do it!! Get educated here: https://www.xda-developers.com/root/!
Thereafter, the procedure for enabling apn changes can be found here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/verizon-galaxy-note-2-rooting-roms-hacks/241691-mod-add-apn-editor-system-settings.html.
OMG! I can not configure the Levono Phab2 Plus for the life of me! I’ve tried every APN setting I could find on the internet. I know it has to be something very simple… HELP Phab2 Plus Model PB2-650Y
Thanks, Les. You’re a life saver. I was in help chats with people for up to an hour and they just walked me through the same old same old to no avail. Changing the name to TRACFONE.VZWENT worked immediately. I don’t understand how they could screw something as trivial as that up so badly.
I purchased a new phone because none of the above worked. I immediately checked the APN and wrote it down, it was “Tracfone.VZWINTERNET” with the TracFone in small letters except for the “T”.
