Access Point Name (APN) is the name of a gateway between a 4G, 3G, GPRS, or GSM mobile data service provider and the internet. Any mobile device making a connection to the internet must be configured with these APN internet settings unique to the network providing connection, typically the service provider in which the SIM card is installed. T-Mobile just like any other service provider has APN settings unique to its network and must be set up appropriately so you can connect to the internet.
Once you have the settings on your phone, ensure that you can see the network bars to be sure that you are within the coverage. You also need an active data plan in order to browse the web. Once you have the settings on your device, either iPhone or Android, restart it for the settings to take effect. Some devices need a restart but some pick up automatically without needing a restart.
