Every dealer dreams to sell a reputed brand with low restrictions. But, what if there is a brand which lets you sell their service with no contract and under your own company name? No wonder GoSmart is viral in the market! Thus, you must know about GoSmart APN Settings.

GoSmart Mobile is a brand service working with Tracfone Wireless Inc. It was a T-Mobile US subsidiary service launched in 2012. GoSmart along with Walmart Family were purchased by Tracfone from T-Mobile US in September 2016.

GoSmart hit the networking industry with a storm with its unique business ideas. It lends their services to independent dealers and let them work under their own brand name. GoSmart offers SIM wireless services and omits the need for contract making the life of dealers a whole lot easier.

It is a widely used service provider and thus has an optimized set of APN settings for optimal data transactions.

Today we have arranged a step by step guide to help you arrange the APN settings for faster data transactions on your smartphone.

What is APN?

Access Point Name, or APN, is a gateway between different networks that help the carrier distinguish between different users.
Think of it as a waiter in a restaurant. You give your orders to the waiter and he passes those orders to the cooking staff. He then brings you the food you ordered.

Like the waiter works as the link between you and the cooks, APN functions as the link between you and your service carriers.

APN helps the carriers distinguish between different users. It tells the carriers which network you are operating on (GPS, GPRS, 3G, 4G LTE, etc.), which data plan you opted for and helps them deciding which IP Address to assign to you.

APN settings are installed automatically when you first activate the carrier SIM in your smartphone but in some cases, the settings installed are not updated, or the device is unable to save those settings.

In cases where the device is reset the settings might need to be optimized manually.

Now, setting APN is no rocket science. But, even a slight spelling mistake can lead you not to be able to use your data at all.
No sweat though! We have arranged a thorough guide to help you cross this rift.

Make sure to follow the guide word for word and you will be good to go.
