    Question APN Settings for Data Network?

    Hi,

    I am unable to set the APN settings manually for my data connectivity.

    I have gone through Settings > General > Network > Cellular Network; but here I only get the option of switching it on & off.

    Do we have to insert it manually using iPhone Configuration Utility like 3GS?

    Pls assist.

    Without knowing what carrier you are on, makes it pretty difficult to give you a answer that can help you out.

    I don't know what carrier you're using, but this "APN changer" link should help you get the correct setting. http://www.unlockit.co.nz/#_Home. Simply select the carrier that you need and click "install". The correct carrier APN setting will then be installed for you.

    Thanks Jeremy Sikora & Irish Rose for your reply.

    I am on Vodafone & have the APN settings just want to figure out to place them in the device. Earlier with my 3GS, had worked around with iPhone Configuration Utility.

    Someone had advised that we can find the APN settings in Settings > General > Network > Cellular Network.

    Go to this site from your phone
    Unlockit - APN Changer for your iPhone

    Make a "custom apn" and then you'll be able to choose your carrier. Make sure the phone is loading the mobile version.

    Thanks forever29 for your reply.

    I was able to work my way around with iPhone Configuration Utility, as I did earlier with my 3GS.

    Hi all, I have Optus APN loaded on my iPad but don't have a 'carrier' atm. Been looking @ Woolworths micro-sim (which uses Optus as the carrier supposedly for iPhone only), but 5GB over 45 days for $29, seems a gr8 deal after comparing the 'real carrier prices IFYKIWM! My ? if I buy this pp micro sim, will the original Optus APN still work? I'd really appreciate some advice being totally new to iPad. Cheers everyone, Min
