- Tap on the name of your carrier
- If you don’t see it, tap on Other
- If your carrier isn’t listed, tap on Add new APN
Select Use Packet Data to turn mobile data on
Note: This is a feature of Android phones, so if you don’t have one, this will not work for you. You should be able to find your settings under the “Wireless & Networks” menu in your phone’s main settings.
Select Use Packet Data to turn mobile data on. If it isn’t already selected, select Network Operators and make sure that “T-Mobile US” is checked as your operator.
Finally, you’ll want to check the box next to “Show Advanced Options” at the bottom right corner of this page as well as everything below it (you can also uncheck these if they’re already checked). Now go back up a few steps until you see an option called “APN Settings”. Tap on it!
Tap APN and enter anywhere that has free wifi
APN is short for Access Point Name. It’s a configuration file that tells your phone how to connect to the internet. APN settings are different for each carrier and can be found on their website.
To find the correct APN settings, first, check out your carrier’s website. You can Google “Verizon APN” or whatever provider you use and see what they have listed there.
If they don’t have them listed, try going onto a site like XDA Developers Forum where people have been known to post these details in past threads. If that doesn’t work either, it’s time to call your carrier and ask them directly if they would please provide you with those instructions because this is really important business stuff!
Save the APN and turn on mobile data. You should now be able to send and receive text messages from your Android phone over wifi!
Now that you’ve saved your APN and turned on mobile data, you should be able to send and receive text messages from your Android phone over wifi. To do this, simply tap the message icon at the top of your inbox screen. Next, tap on “New Message.”
You can save your APN by tapping on the three dots in the top right corner of the screen or by tapping on “Cog” and then tapping “Save”.
There’s a lot of confusion about how to get free text messages on your phone. But it all boils down to one basic thing: you must have a data plan with your carrier in order to use the internet for messaging. You can’t send or receive messages over wifi without first paying for mobile data. If you don’t, then all those texts will cost you money and not appear as free on your phone bill.
