Setting Up Your Nokia Lumia For Red Pocket Mobile

Red Pocket Mobile is one of my favorite carriers. Running off the AT&T network, RPM offers users unlimited talk, text and 3GB of data for $59.99 a month. They also have plans from $29.99 a month that include unlimited talk and text only. These prices drop a bit when you purchase discount refills from online sources like TMI Wireless. Red Pocket Mobile service works perfectly on any unlocked GSM handset and also performs flawlessly on locked AT&T handsets. Those AT&T branded Samsung Focus', that HTC 8X or even the newest carrier locked Nokia Lumia devices work amazingly well, even without their unlock codes.

To set up your Nokia Lumia for Red Pocket Mobile, simply download the Network Setup App from the Marketplace and press the (+) icon at the bottom of the screen and enter the following settings. If you do not have an edit option in your device's APN menu or under the cellular settings, you can grab a download of Nokia's Access Point App here. Once you have downloaded this, make sure you enter a new APN for Red Pocket Mobile and enable it for use.

Connection Name: Red Pocket
Check the box that says "Make this my current APN"

Make sure you try setting up your Windows Phone 7, 8 or 8.1 device with these settings and feel free to visit Red Pocket Mobile online and order your discounted Red Pocket Mobile SIM card and instant refill code

UPDATE 8/14/14: Many people have been wondering about finding the APN setup program for their Lumia devices. Fortunately, the capabilities have been built in to most of the line now. You can access it by selecting Settings > Access Point. If you do not have this option on your Lumia, you can download the App here -

UPDATE 1/31/15: Certain network locked phones may not have access to editing APN's any longer. Check your phone for what settings are able to be changed before attempting to configure your handset.


  1. there is no network setup app at the marketplace!

  2. Yes, that App was discontinued with WP7... This post is nearly 2 years old. What Lumia are you trying to set up? You probably just need to download Access Point to your newer Lumia if it is not already in the system menu.

  3. Access Point does not work with Nokia Lumia 635. It has an option under settings; cellular + SIM. Here the APN can be configured. I have followed the instructions on the Red Pocket site, but have not been able to configure the MMS.

  4. Yes, Access Point is once again gone - and there are new settings for LTE access for Red Pocket. I'm working on finding out the correct settings for it now as the 'locked' AT&T handsets can be programmed, but not all the options are always available. As soon as I know, I will update this article again.

  5. Thank you! I will surely appreciate it! I have calle the Customer Service and programmed the APN like they say. MMS worked for a few minutes, than it stopped working.

  6. Hi, I wanted to know if you have any more information on this item. I have continued troubleshooting the options for MMS and Internet on the Nokia Lumia 635. I have discovered the following: When I configure exactly as indicated on the site (for this phone), I get internet, but not MMS. When I delete the APN for internet (Leave it blank), I get MMS. I can have one or the other, but not both at the same time. Maybe there is a solution for this. Please let me know . . . . .
