They are included in Android. The correct settings are determined by your SIM MCC and MNC (Mobile Country Code and Mobile Network Code). If you want, you can view the list of preset APNs by looking at the source code, for example at android-source-browsing. The file name in this case is /etc/apns-full-conf.xml, but apparently it varies.
Next to the pre-configured settings from /etc/apns-full-conf.xml as described in onik's answer, some providers offer to send you so-called "service SMS" for an automated configuration. Opinions on those are quite confusing: Some say those do not work on Android or iOS devices, and you'd have to enter APN data manually (e.g. Simyo in Germany), while others ...
Yes, just copy the /system/etc/apns-conf.xml file. You can also use an app like APN Backup & Restore: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.riteshsahu.APNBackupRestore Edit: To backup manually-entered APNs (or ones otherwise not part of your ROM, such as ones "imported" when you insert a new SIM card) you also need to back up ...
I have been told by Verizon that it's a bug on the Samsung Note 2 and S3 after Jelly bean. Verizon / Samsung are working on a fix so you can modify the APN in near future. Verizon didn't intend a deliberate prevention on their part (confirmed by the fact Verizon HTC Droid Incredible 2 running android DOES allow you to modify the APN and works perfectly for ...
I am from the USA and have the Verizon S3 with Jelly Bean. I am currently in the UK. Used my usual UK VodaFone Sim card and it immediately worked for both Voice and Texts (something it didn't do when I was here in November before the Jelly Bean Update). The reason it won't work at all in SOME countries is actually SIMPLY (but major) because Verizon seem to ...
Also see http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=734138 for a discussion about how they might. Mechanisms other than APN change might include Time to live Request header Data volume Answer seems to be probably not.
I really like APNdroid and haven't had problems with it at all. However, I've got an HTC Dream that's unlocked and running on AT&T so it is pretty much guaranteed that I'm not getting OTA updates. You can always access your APN settings directly, so even if an update broke your APN settings, you should have been able to go in through Settings > ...
I am having this problem too after inserting local SIM. Calls and texts are OK, I need to configure an APN for internet. A Verizon Global Support Technician told me that it is beyond Verizon's control to add an APN and that Samsung will need to provide directions on how to do this. I got online to chat with Samsung and the guy told me he can't help me on ...
APNDroid doesn't work on CDMA phones. This appears to be the case with most such apps. Internet Scheduler and GreenPower claim to work on them if you have Gingerbread, though. There are some other solutions you can try in this Google Groups thread.
