Re: Unable to change APN

During the last period I tried everything, but no success.

 

It would be helpful if I can even know why it is happening that one provider works and the other don't.

 

Thanks

One provider enables the editing of the APN, and another doesn't. That's been discussed many times here.

My provider says, they don't disable APN editing and if I am on Android or iOS, that statement is true: I can edit and connect to the network.

Their SIM card in the device controls it.

 

That's why you can insert another carrier SIM card in the device and find you can edit the APN.

Re: Unable to change APN

Hey JSanders, this is the biggest step towards the solution.

 

It means that I have to go to my provider and tell them that their SIM card is wrongly configured... they will not accept that unless I point them out the exact bit or flag on the card that has the wrong value. Is there a way to find the location of that flag?

I have a card reader that is able to read the card's content and I understand HEX numbers too Smiley Happy

2 months have been left and still no answer, no solution, no nothing.
