Straight Talk APN Settings

Straight Talk APN (access point name) settings are required to connect to the cellular network and access network services provided by Straight Talk, chief among them is the internet. To successfully do this, you will need a data plan and be within network coverage. Straight Talk uses the Verizon network to provide coverage so network coverage should not be an issue.

APN is the name of the gateway on the service provider’s network. The settings however do not only contain the APN but also a host of other settings like the type of APN, protocol in use and MMS settings. They should be set as they are as they are unique to the Straight Talk network.

APN settings are ideally automatically set up when a device with Straight Talk SIM/eSIM tries to first connect to the network. In some cases, you need to set it manually and I have provided it below for Android devices and iOS / iPhones.
