I'm in the US for 30 days and got a SIM card from Lycamobile. For some reason adding APNs doesn't work through the GUI (I add them but they never show up in the list, even after rebooting).
Instead I added the following lines to my
/system/etc/apns-conf.xml, just before
<!-- BEGIN Custom APNs --> <apn carrier="Lyca US" mcc="311" mnc="960" apn="data.lycamobile.com" type="GPRS" user="lmus" pass="plus" /> <!-- END Custom APNs -->
Based on MCC and MNC data from Wikipedia and the information available online in general. I also enabled Data Roaming and International Roaming. I have rebooted my phone. I am on a Samsung Galaxy S3 running the latest AOKP nightly.
However, I still get an R in my signal tray and cannot connect to the internet. Please advise - any help would be appreciated even if it a nudge in a new direction.
