Data settings for 12-Key or Quick Messaging non-AT&T device

Learn how to program your 12-Key or Quick Messaging device with the correct AT&T APN and MMS data connection settings to use 4G (HSPA+)/4G LTE data services.


ArticleDETAILED STEPS

Verify SIM & data plan compatibility

To use AT&T 4G (HSPA+) or 4G LTE data services, you may need to program your data settings for a compatible, non-AT&T device, like an unlocked device from another carrier or a device purchased directly from the manufacturer.

Verify the device has a compatible SIM card and data plan before changing the data settings. This may resolve data connection issues without requiring any changes to your data settings:
  1. To verify SIM card compatibility:
    • You should already have the correct type SIM card if you recently purchased it new from AT&T or an authorized retailer. 
    • If you are using a SIM card from some other source or if you moved an active SIM card to a new device, verify SIM compatibility with 4G (HSPA+)/4G LTE data
  2. To verify data plan compatibility:
    • If you moved an active SIM card to a new device and did not notify us of that change, your existing data plan might not be compatible. 
    • To update the device information on the account and make any required rate plan changes, the account holder or authorized user can contact us.
