    Default Nexus 5 and Consumer Cellular... what works for me.

    It seems that there are a few of us that have bought the Nexus 5 and are trying to use Consumer Cellular for a carrier. I had everything working the first day (data and MMS) but even though I am in an LTE area all I could get was HSPA. After 4 weeks of trying every configuration I finally have it working on LTE and I just want to share my settings in the hope that it will help someone else.
    And even after getting LTE access I tried other settings that were posted but I found almost any variation from these settings would disable LTE or MMS.

    Name: ConsumerCellular
    APN: ccdata (The CC support site has att.mvno but ccdata was the one change that put me on LTE.)
    Proxy: not set
    Port: not set
    User Name: not set
    Password: not set
    Server: not set
    MMSC: not set
    MMS Proxy: proxy.mvno.ccmobileweb.com
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: None
    APN Type: default,mms,supl,fota (no spaces) (some others, on other phones, have found you need to space after the commas.)
    APN Protocol: IPv4
    APN roaming protocol: IPv4
    APN Enabled (check) (not active)
    Bearer: Unspecified
    MVNO type: None

    OMG thank you SO MUCH.

    CC tech support was utterly useless. This is the only config on the entire internet that actually works, data, LTE and MMS perfectly.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH.

    Sticky this please.

    Did not work for me. Do I have to call CC and have them do something? I have an H on old settings no connection on the new settings.

    I previously had a configuration that worked for a couple of months then stopped working (I did see an H). Like you, I tried these suggested settings and have a signal, phone and text, but mms and the web dont work. There is no longer an H. Should there be an "L"?

    This is what finally worked for my sister, after I had been through every APN setting I could find:

    Name: ConsumerCellular
    APN: ccdata
    Proxy: blank or not set
    Port: 80
    Username: <Not set>
    Password: <Not set>
    Server: http://mmsc.mobile.att.net
    MMSC: http://mmsc.mobile.att.net
    MMS proxy: proxy.mobile.att.net
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: PAP or None/Not Set
    APN type: default,mms,supl,agps,fota
    APN protocol: IPv4
    APN roaming protocol: IPv4
    Bearer: Unspecified
    MVNO type: None

    LTE works great, finally.

    I have an unlocked Nexus 5 that I had on sprint, but I'm now with Consumer Cellular.
    When I try all other suggestions on APN settings to get LTE to work, I seem to just get 2G. The H icon goes away and I don't have an internet connection. I have waited for 10 minutes to see if it would establish an LTE connection and I have also rebooted the phone, nothing works.

    I can get HSPA+ and MMS working with these APN Settings though:
    APN: att.mvno
    Proxy: proxy.mvno.ccmobileweb.com
    Port: 80
    User Name: not set
    Password: not set
    Server: cincular&#46;com
    MMSC: cincular&#46;com
    MMS Proxy: 66.209.11.32
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: PAP or CHAP
    APN Type: not set
    APN Protocol: IPv4
    APN roaming protocol: IPv4
    APN Enabled (check) (not active)
    Bearer: Unspecified
    MVNO type: None

    Any suggestions on how to get LTE working? Is it possible the SIM card CC sent me doesn't support LTE?

    Thanks

    I dont have a Nexus 5 but I have tried all the settings that I am finding all over these forums and others, with no luck. My 4g will not work and not sure what I am doing wrong. I am keying it in perfectly. I haven't contacted CS yet because I have heard that they are not helpful at all. I have a I535 Samsung Galaxy S3, unlocked.

    Does the S3 get LTE? I'm not sure if it does.

    Yeah it gets LTE. The Consumer Cellular guy called here yesterday and we tried everything, nothing is working. I know the phone used to work on VZW's LTE. It has all the options in the phone to switch it over to CDMA LTE but its not wanting to pick up anything stronger than a EDGE signal.

    Maybe since it's a CDMA phone it doesn't get the AT&T LTE band(s)? Or not very well. That's what I'd surmise.

    Hey everyone,

    I had the same problem. I tried all, and I mean ALL, of the recommended APN settings I could find online. None worked, but it turned out that the problem was on Consumer Cellular's end. My phone had not been properly configured for 4G/LTE service. Someone in tech support re-configured my phone and then gave me the appropriate APN settings:

    Name: ConsumerCellular
    APN: ccdata
    Proxy: not set
    Port: 80
    Username: not set
    Password: not set
    Server: httpcolondoubleforwardslash mmsc.mobile.att.net (sorry about this, i am not allowed to post links)
    MMSC: httpcolondoubleforwardslash mmsc.mobile.att.net
    MMS proxy: proxy.mobile.att.net
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: PAP
    APN type: default,mms,supl,agps,fota (no spaces)
    APN protocol: lPv4
    APN roaming protocol: lPv4
    APN enable: checked box
    Bearer: unspecified
    MVNO type: none

    TL;DR: these settings work for me and were provided by Consumer Cellular, but will only work if they have your phone properly configured for 4G/LTE. Hope this helps.

    Hello all -

    Has anyone had success with the Lollipop 5.0 update? Last night I did the OTA update, and today I can't get mobile data on my Nexus 5. WiFi works fine, but the data 'bars' have an exclamation point superimposed.

    I called CC support, but they were unable to help. the girl guessed that the software was ''too new".

    This is the only thing that worked for our Samsung Avant phones! Thank you!

    Just verified that BigBoyMS settings work on the Nexus 5X! Both LTE and MMS are working now, thanks.

    I have the Nexus 6P -- Having issues with accessing my consumer cellular internet, and of course customer service is stating it is not compatible with consumer cellular's network - but I find that hard to believe? I tried the Nexus 5 P info and still nothing ... GRRRRRRRR

    I have a Nexus 5x but it's currently refusing to save an APN for me, I press save, or hit the back button, it will disappear.

    Okay, I finally just had to call Consumer Cellular and make sure the phone was activated correctly, give them the IMEI number, etc. After a restart, it's working fine, with LTE, didn't need to edit my APN
