So after the nightmare I had trying to get my Nexus 5 and previous Verizon account over to Net10, I decided I'd try out H2O wireless. The process is all great, easy to get on it, but can't get a hold of the correct APN settings for it yet.

Yet.

I've got a few, but thought I'd see what others are using and recommending.

I'm on the $60 Unlimited everything plan.

Here's what I've found.

H2O Wireless Website

Now I have no idea where some of this stuff goes, so I tried...

And this one...

So what is everyone else using? I've done some searching but haven't found much at all.

I'm pretty sure they have an app that will help with that.

How do you like the service and everything ? I will most likely be switching to them next month.

They do, incompatible with 4.0 and up because Google no longer allows 3rd party apps to change or as APN settings.

Been in it for one day, but so far it is as good as Straight Talk, but more data.

Well if you have root access you can convert that h20 app into a system app with titanium backup. Then it'll do its thing and get you the right APN.

Hmm, interesting idea. I might give that a shot, it's just nice to be able to see what the actual settings are since we can't see what they are in an existing APN. At least not in the ROM I'm running.

Is be nice to get what others are using too. My first day has been pretty good.

Speeds are limited on the plan i'm on apparently which is the $50 one. The $60 plan should be faster.

When I said I just use the APN I meant the same settings you have above but the rest of the fields are blank. So mine looks like this:

Name: H2O Wireless
APN :att.mvno
MMSC:http://mmsc.cingular.com
MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.33
MMS Port: 80
MMS Type: default,mms,hipri,supl (no space between then)

That's all.

Speeds I haven't tested as it's HSPA+ but prolly limited to 7.2Mbps speeds or something. The $60 plan is "10x" faster, whatever that means.

I don't know how good that APN is for the $60 plan, I did a speed test and had 5 megs on H+, then added your APN settings in and restarted. the highest I can get is one mag with those.

EDIT: nevermind, seems to be working fine now. Thanks.

I tried this but before and after I installed the app all it'll do is force close. Thanks though.

H20 APNs for Nexus 5
Hey everyone, I would like to see what APNs you all are using for the Nexus 5, I am wanting to use my phone to get one of the unlimited plans for the Nexus 5 via H20 Wireless, but I cant seem to get my phone number to pull up on the website when I'm on my account in H20, so if I could get the codes that would be a great help!
Thanks
