How to get T-Mobile 4GLTE working with ATT Samsung Note Edge

So, I’ve been using my trusty Samsung S5 for the last 18 months and have generally been delighted with it. But, I’ve recently found it a little slow when playing #Ingress and decided it’s time to upgrade to something just marginally quicker ahnd (most importantly) with a bigger screen for my sausage like fingers. </drumroll>Enter the mighty Samsung Note Edge</drumroll>

I snapped up a half price ATT Note Edge (model sm-n915a) on Craigslist, and I can confirm that it works very nicely on T-MOBILE. The only irritation I have, is the stock AT&T Android ROM and I would prefer to install a clean basic Android. But cant find a way yet!!! Apart from that minor thing, the phone works great and 4GLTE connectoin is steady and reliable.

To make the changes from ATT to the TMOBILE servers you just need to make a simple change to the APN connection info.

You just goto SETTINGS ! MOBILE NETWORKS ! ACCESS POINTS and delete any old ATT ones and create one called T-Mobile like this:

  • Name: T-Mobile
  • APN: epc.tmobile.com or fast.t-mobile.com (for LTE devices)
  • Proxy: <Not set>
  • Port: <Not set>
  • Username: <Not set>
  • Password: <Not set>
  • Server: <Not set>
  • MMSC: http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
  • MMS proxy: <Not set>
  • MMS port: <Not set>
  • MMS protocol: WAP 2.0
  • MCC: 310
  • MNC: 260
  • Authentication type:<Not set>
  • APN type: <Not Set> OR Internet+MMS (depending on software version)

When you update it – you should see a screen something like this:

  • thanks for the info. I wonder if I can get the AT&T model to work on Google Fi. SM-N915A. It should since Fi is just T-mobile (and Sprint and US Cellular)
