Best Cellular – PCS (Sprint) Network APN Settings
To initiate your service please program your device by selecting the ‘update profile’ option that is usually located in the settings menu of your device. If the phone does not automatically program when clicking, “update profile” to manually program with the following steps.
To find the info below log into your customer account with the username and password you created when activating your phone with Best Cellular.
- Enter in ##[MSL]# on the dial pad.
(MSL code is available in your BestCellular.com account).
- You will see the options: View, Edit, or Done.
Click on Edit.
- You will then be asked to enter in your MDN (Mobile Directory Number).
This is your phone number.
- You will then be asked to enter in your MSID (Mobile Station ID), may also be called a MIN
(MSID code is available in your BestCellular.com account).
- When complete, click Done. Your phone may restart.
- Once the phone is back online, you can begin using your service.
For (Sprint) phones on Best Cellular – PCS plans, here are the settings if (for some reason) you have to manually configure them.
To view or edit the Mobile Data / MMS settings:
- Dial: ##3283# (##DATA#)
- Select “View” to verify settings are correct. (Don’t edit unless you have to!)
- Select “Edit” if you plan to manually modify these settings. (BE VERY CAREFUL!)
- When asked for the “passcode”, “password” or “MSL” code, enter the MSL code available under the customer info under the Best Cellular “Lookup” tab.
Be sure to test a device before editing any of these settings. If mobile data DOES work but MMS does not, there is no reason to edit the Data Profile. Only edit the MMSC.
There may be settings listed below that are not available on the device you’re working on. If so, NO PROBLEM! Just skip them!
