Android devices’ data settings

To program an Android® device with the correct settings to connect to AT&T data services:
  1. Tap your device’s Settings menu.
  2. Choose either Wireless & Networks, More Networks, or Connections.
  3. Tap Mobile Networks, then Access Point Names.
  4. Find and select the option to add a new APN. This is usually accessed by a plus (+) symbol on the screen or by tapping the menu button.
  5. Program each field using the settings found in the table.
  6. Save your changes to return to the APN's menu and choose the new APN.
Heads up: Some older Android smartphones may use the wap.cingular APN as the default AT&T setting. This APN no longer supports smartphone data connectivity. If you’re not able to program your device following these steps, refer to your user manual or contact the manufacturer for help.
