Metro by T-Mobile APN Settings for Android

Metro by T-Mobile APN settings are easy to configure on any Android device as long as it is compatible with Metro network specifications. Below is everything you need to know to get your Android device on Metro with Metro APN settings. If your device is not Android, check Metro by T-Mobile APN Settings instead.

Metro is a no-contract MVNO using T-Mobile LTE network. Therefore, if your Android device is compatible with T-Mobile, then it will work on Metro too with below Metro APN settings. Also most of the unlocked devices from other GSM carriers such as AT&T will also work on Metro. Metro also offers unlimited data plans for Android.

APN Settings are usually found under Settings > Connections > Mobile Networks > Access point names. But if this path is not found on your Android device may be it is customized. In that case please choose your exact Android device modal to get Metro APN settings. If Access point names is disabled or if hidden on your Android device then probably it is blocked by your previous carrier. In that case please contact your previous carrier or the Android device seller to get it unlocked for Metro.

Metro APN settings for Android 9 Pie are given below. But if you are looking for Metro APN settings for different version of Android such as Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Android 4 ICS, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Android 4.4 KitKat, Android 5 Lollipop, Android 6 Marshmallow, Android 7 Nougat, Android 8 Oreo please select your exact device modal below.

Do not change MCC or MNC values when configuration the Metro APN settings above. Your Android device knows the best values for MCC and MNC for Metro and they will be set automatically by Android in APN settings. Android usually retrieves MCC and MNC from the SIM card and sets it to your APN settings accordingly.

If you face any issues with the speed, delete everything in APN type field and leave it blank and see if that solves your issue on Android for Metro. If the settings still not performing well then your Android device may not be compatible with Metro. To check it, select your exact Android phone modal from the Android devices list below.

In 2019 why would any Samsung phone not work on 4G LTE? This does not make sense. According to this site, the Samsung Galaxy A30 does not work on Metro by T-Mobile 4G LTE network. Why not???

This site says that the brand new Samsung Galaxy A30 will not work on MetroPCS 4G LTE network. It says it will work on Metro, but only an 2G and 3G. I find this hard to believe. Do you really think that Samsung is going to release a brand new phone in 2019 that doesn't work on 4G LTE ??? Can someone please comment on this?

John United States August 28, 2019

@randy metropcs uses specific bands of 4g lte that are, in many regards, only compatible with higher end unlocked phones. As far as the mid-range of phones in the unites states, metro typically only supports the 4g bands of phones that are proprietary to their brand. In my opinion this is largly due to branding deals that metro/T-Mobile has with various manufacturers, only wanting you to bring your own phone if its a more high end unlocked model. So, its not that the a30 doesnt support LTE bands, just not the bands specific to metro because metro doesnt sell their own a30. They do sell the a20 which has slightly weaker specs but woukd highly recommend as an under $200 option for a phone. Honestly probably the best option at this point in Aug 2019.
