    Default The Droid DNA is SIM-unlocked (that means it works on AT&T)



    Well, will you look at that.

    How to use the Verizon Droid DNA on AT&T (or any other GSM network) | Android Central



    Here are the APN settings I used for AT&T.

    APN: pta
    MMSC: http://mmsc.mobile.att.net
    MMS Proxy: proxy.mobile.att.net
    MMS port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Auth: none
    APN type: default,mms,supl,hipri

    Now that's interesting, I would have never guessed that could be done.

    So I guess that means you can use it for AT&T MNVO's using HSPA+ like StriaghtTalk, etc? That could be very nice...

    if you could that would be awesome!!! Been wanting to try out straighttalk in my area this way i could get a verizon phone to keep incase it sucks and use it to try out ST without having to buy a new device. Anyone have any clues if you can?

    All new Verizon LTE phones (ex. iPhone 5) HAVE to have GSM unlocked per the FCC because they make use of the 700mhz spectrum for LTE. That was one of the requirements from the FCC in order to sell the spectrum. You guys didn't think Verizon was that nice... LOL!

    I am new to this. I just got me a Droid DNA and it's unlocked so my phone "AT&T" is working but how do I get my DATA to work and change me APN. I manually typed the APN settings from above but no luck. What am I doing wrong.

    The network specs for the DNA state "UMTS/HSPA: 850/900/1900/2100MHz" on HTC's site (source: DROID DNA by HTC - Verizon: Cell Phones & Smartphones). Does this imply/mean it supports HSPA+ or just the original specification, HSPA?

    Does it mean it will work on any European GSM 3G network?
    Will it work on 2G or 2.5G (EDGE/GPRS) GSM networks?

    I entered this apn and one other. Both work great in all aspects except sending pictures thru text. Is that normal when bringing a phone over to another carrier or could a different apn make this work?

    Just got my Droid DNA today ($600 at Amazon). Love the hardware, but couldn't get data to work using Phil's APN settings. I finally switched Preferred Network to "Global" from "GSM/UMTS" and data started flowing. I don't know what those settings mean, but figured I'd post it here in case anybody else is in the same boat.

    Just found these APN settings online. Quite a bit faster on SpeedTest. Still can't receive MMS messages, although standard text messages are fine.

    APN: phone
    Proxy: Blank
    Port: Blank
    Username: blank
    Password: blank
    Server: blank
    MMSC: http://mmsc.mobile.att.net
    MMS Proxy: proxy.mobile.att.net
    MMS Port: 80
    MCC: 310
    MNC: 410
    Authentication type: Blank
    APN Type: default,supl,mms,hipri
    APN protocol: leave as is
    Bearer: leave as is

    One question. I have a Droid DNA and its new so when I start it, it starts a setup wizard to connect to verizon but since I have a att sim in it and no service with verizon, its just keeps trying to connect to verizon and I can do anything but open the dial pad for E. calls. how do you skip this setup wizard??
