Fastest APN Mint (updated) for Internet Speeds

Here’s exactly what most people miss out on: the Mint APN settings for Android and iOS, which improve connectivity and fix errors and problems with Mint Internet configuration.

Configuring Mint APN Settings

In my experience, I encountered some trouble setting up my Mint Mobile service on my Android Pixel 4A. Despite switching from Google Fi and porting my number seamlessly, I found that calls were the only thing working initially. Texts were coming from a temporary Mint number, and group texts were failing immediately.

After trying various suggestions from Mint FAQs and online forums, I finally stumbled upon a solution that worked for me. I deleted all the custom APN settings I had created and opted for the default T-Mobile US APN settings instead.

Here’s what worked for me:

  • Go to Settings > Network & internet > Mobile network > Advanced > Access Point Names.
  • Delete any custom APN settings you’ve created.
  • Select the default T-Mobile US APN settings:
    • Name: T-Mobile US
    • APN: fast.t-mobile.com
    • MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
    • MCC: 310
    • MNC: 240
    • APN Type: default,supl,is,mms
    • APN Protocol: IPv6
    • APN Roaming Protocol: IPv4
    • Bearer: HSPA, EVDO_B, eHRPD, LTE, HSPAP, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, IS95A, IS95B, 1xRTT, EVDO_0, EVDO_A, HSDPA, NR, HSUPA (Leave everything else as either “none” or “not set”).

After applying these settings, everything started working flawlessly for me. Group texts, regular texts, picture texts, calls, data — you name it, it all worked without a hitch.

Other Devices

Most devices follow a similar manual configuration approach. Refer to your device’s manual or contact Mint Mobile support for specific instructions.

Verification and Testing

Once configured, try accessing a website or sending an MMS to verify a successful connection. If unsuccessful, revisit your settings and ensure accuracy. Contact Mint Mobile support for further assistance.

Troubleshooting the Mint APN Settings

1. Verifying APN Settings

When I first set up Mint Mobile service, I followed the provided APN settings but still had problems sending picture messages. Here is what I did to get MMS working properly:

  • First, I verified my APN settings under Settings > Connections > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names on my Android device.
  • I compared my configured “Mint” APN against the official Mint Mobile APN details I had written down.
  • For me, the MMSC setting was incorrect, so I fixed it to match Mint’s MMSC URL.

2. Restarting Your Device

Next, I did the good ol’ restart by fully powering down my phone and turning it back on. This clears out any temporary glitches from incorrect settings.

3. Resetting APN Settings

What happens if you reset APN

When I powered my device back on, MMS started working! But in case restarting doesn’t work for you, I suggest resetting the APN list to default and re-adding the Mint Mobile APN profile from scratch.

4. Checking for Mint Network Outages

If issues still persist despite correct APN settings, check the Mint Mobile Facebook and Twitter pages – they are good about posting network outage updates.

5. Contacting Mint Mobile Support
