Verizon APN Settings

Verizon APN (access point name) settings are necessary for network service access like the internet through 4G and 5G cellular connections. Every device with Verizon SIM requires APN settings for it to get all the network services assuming users already meet all the requirements. The internet for example requires users to be within network coverage and an active data plan.

APN is essentially the name of the gateway on the cellular network. Verizon APN is vzwinternet. The settings do not only contain the name of the APN but also other host of settings like the protocol in use, the type of APN and MMS settings. These settings have to be set up the way they appear for a successful network service access.

APN settings are normally automatically set up when a device is detected on the network and specific settings determined by the SIM card. In situations where they are deleted or need to be configured manually, I have provided the settings for Android and iOS devices below.
