APN is acronym for Access Point Name.


It’s something that provides a phone with the information needed to connect to wireless service. Typically when you unlock your phone and join a new network you may need to update your APN settings to access your data.


This article will walk you through setting up internet and pictures messaging (MMS):


  1. If you're having issues getting online on your phone & are looking to set-up or reset your APN settings, first try using the online Tweakker configurator - if that works then that's great - you're done!
  2. If your specific phone model is not listed then try choosing one that is "similar" as that may also work.
  3. If the settings don't work, you'll need to enter them manually. 
  4. If you configure these settings and they still don't work then please DOUBLE CHECK on the offchance there's a typo along the way - e.g. some people have entered instead of etc. The settings must be entered EXACTLY as specified below.
  5.  If you already have internet/APN settings but they are different to those below then reconfigure your settings so they match those above or delete any existing APNs and start again and add the 48 one anew.
  6. Here are the generic APN (Access Point Name) settings. Different phones may not require all of these, or they may be worded slightly differently. If you’re unable to edit the current settings, press the Menu key or icon to add a new APN.
