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 10 Q 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, Android 9 Pie please select your exact device modal below.

On Android, APN settings should be entered in correct case. For example, if you are configuring your APN setting with Metro Internet & MMS APN settings configuration above, make sure you enter APN as fast.metropcs.com and not as FAST.METROPCS.COM or Fast.metropcs.com.

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.
