Unable to define custom APN in iOS 5 beta 7
As it used to happen before, the GPRS setting for my Carrier is not getting detected by iOS 5 beta 7. But earlier there used to be an option to define Customer APN setting at Setting->General->Network->Cellular Data.
But in iOS 5 beta 7 the Cellular Data Option is missing.
Can someone help me in defining the custom APN setting as the GPRS is no longer working on my phone?

APN manual settings depend on the carrier profile that is sent to your phone when it first connects to their network, whenever they push it out, or when you reset your phone. If the carrier is not an official iPhone carrier, your iPhone will show the manual settings. If they are an official iPhone carrier, they have the choice of leaving the option in or removing it.
My best thought on your problem is that it is not a beta issue, but a carrier issue. It seems your phone did not get your carrier profile before, but now it has. Please try contacting your carrier if they officially support manual APN settings. If not, then the only other option is to JailBreak your phone.

Personal hotspot still missing :/
The above feature does appear to solve the issue as I wasn't able to use my data due to lack of APN settings and now I can. But the Personal Hotspot which has been there in every iOS 5 beta till "beta 6" has not appeared even after creating a custom profile with benm.at profile even though my carrier fully allows tethering!
