Whether you have purchased the T-Mobile OnePlus 6T or unlocked this guide, this guide will show you how to change the settings of the OnePlus 6T APN. These are the settings you need to change to use your phone on different operators.

APN stands for "Access Point Name" and is essentially a gateway for operator networks. It provides your phone with the information needed to communicate with AT & T, T-Mobile, Verizon and others. Thus, you will get the 4G LTE or can send text and image messages.

For some devices or networks, these settings change automatically when you insert a SIM card. However, sometimes it does not work. If this is the case, you will need to manually search and configure the APN settings yourself. Only then can you use the OnePlus 6T on a different medium than the one you bought it from.

The procedure for finding the appropriate menu in the settings varies from one phone to another, but with the Android 9 Pie stock available on the 6T, this should be pretty easy.

Instructions

  • From the home screen, go to settings (lower the notification bar and hit the shaped gear wheel settings button)
  • Now press SIM and network settings
  • To choose Mobile network, then press SIM 1 or SIM 2
  • Then select Access point names (It's here that you enter your carrier information)
  • Choose your carrier's APN information if it is listed. If unavailable, press ADD or +
  • Contribution new APN settings provided by your operator of choice
    To reset your APN settings, press the button Menu (3 points) icon, then press Reset to defaults.

If no APN information is displayed, you will need to enter it manually. If you insert a SIM card into the phone and restart it, the phone must automatically set the required APN settings. Try this first. Otherwise, press the ADD button in the upper corner to start.

You will see a lot of strange things such as name, proxy, mmsc, port and protocol. It sounds confusing, but you do not need to know what they mean. All you need to know is what values ​​or what words to put in each category. You can get this information from your carrier or a quick Google search.

As you can see above, I click ADD and start adding the information required for T-Mobile's APN settings. Enter all the required lines of text, move to the place where it is written "undefined", then select the three dots at the top and press save. You can modify those already present or enter yours.

Now, your OnePlus 6T can communicate with T-Mobile cellular stations and you'll get 4G LTE, HDVoice, and sending photo messages will work. Or, simply buy the T-Mobile phone to avoid this problem. You can find the APN settings for Verizon here and AT & T here.

As a reminder, fill in the sections (or leave them blank) exactly as you see the details of the APN wherever you get them. If a line is empty or says "undefined", leave it as it is. Do not enter more than necessary.

T-Mobile APN Settings (Enter by following the instructions above)

Since most users of OP6T will probably use it on T-Mobile, here are the latest APN settings for them.

  • First name: T-Mobile US LTE
  • APN: fast.t-mobile.com
  • Proxy:
  • Harbor:
  • Username:
  • Password:
  • Server:
  • MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
  • MMS Proxy:
  • MMS port:
  • MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
  • MCC: 310
  • MNC: 260
  • Type of identification:
  • APN type: OR Internet + MMS
  • APN Protocol: IPv4 / IPv6
  • APN roaming protocol: IPv4
  • Enable / disable APN:
  • Carrier: Unspecified
  • Tap MORE > save

Where it says that fast.t-mobile.com is a crucial line. If you use an outdated APN setting and do not say "fast", you will get a slow 3G Internet speed. Follow everything as above.

Once you're done and you tap Save, everything is ready. We recommend that owners restart the phone, then return to the APN settings and make sure that the values ​​you entered are correct. If not, try again and be sure to click Save.

To make sure everything works, send a quick text message, call or try browsing the web. If this is not the case, double check the errors and try again. Users can also call the provider of their choice to confirm that the APN settings are correct. Or, bring the phone to a T-Mobile store and they will do it for you.
