When accessing internet programmatically I can use wifi. When wifi is not available I need to use
the service provided by the operator on the mobile net. In order to do that I need to know the APN.
I found this:
Have not figured out where or how to get the apnid.

The APN ID used by RadioInfo.getAccessPointName is the ID of the currently open tunnel, which could only have been open if a working APN was specified for it. Thus, it won't help you find out which APNs your should be using to open tunnels.

Definitely sounds like Catch 22.
How do I figure out the APN then? There must be some way to find it. If I make an app that needs to access internet and wifi is not available how do I work it?

You could use WAP2, or ship your product with a huge (updatable) database that lists working APNs for each carrier network. Mind you, the availability and pricing of APNs depends on the user's data plan too.
