Thread: Lose APN Settings on 3G

  1. #1
    Default Lose APN Settings on 3G
    Is there a way I can keep the APN setting? It seems to lose the setting every time I lose the signal or reboot the phone.

    I figured out what you can do to solve this. It was getting annoying for me, too.

    Go to on your iPhone
    Click continue
    Click Custom APN
    Type your APN, leave username/password blank
    Don't mess with the drop-down box
    Click Create Custom Profile
    Safari will swap out and open settings and ask you to apply carrier settings profile
    Apply it

    You're done. Your APN will stick upon reboot. Unfortunately, you might still have to flick the Data Roaming switch, but that's only sometimes, and a lot easier than typing your APN again.

    Enjoy (oh yeah, and remember to thank me =] )

    I'm using 3G iPhone on 2.2.1 using the gevey sim card as well. I lose EDGE after I switch to WiFi. I usually have to put my SIM into a reg tmobile phone, browse the web and than put SIM back into the iPhone than it catches EDGE again. Sucks.. but I try not to use wifi anymore since I lose my edge.
