Sweden Hallon (3.se network) (individual, maybe enterprise too) After manual upgrade on this Fairphone3, APN was unconfigured, no mobile data working, but on the APN setting page selecting reset default (three dots up right) and rebooted they got correctly populated. (so try that first!) The following two APN then displayed in APN setting:

data.tre.se
3 SE MMS (this one is selected)
data.tre.se

For information, values can easily be extracted from /etc/apns-conf.xml (note : there can be multiple lines with the same APN carrier name).

Some background on some of the settings and why you cannot modify some of the values:

The Mobile Country Code (MCC) and Mobile Network Code (MNC) fields together specify which carrier you are using. Each carrier in the world has their own unique MCC and MNC value pair.

These will usually be set according to the SIM card that is inserted in your phone and won’t need changing. Your device may even prevent you from making changes to these fields, rendering them display-only fields.

Android’s APN settings are all carrier-specific: when you create an APN setting, it’ll be used only when you are using the carrier network specified in its MCC and MNC fields. If you take out the SIM card and replace it with one for another carrier, the APN settings you previously created will probably no longer be visible. If so, this is not because they have been deleted, but because Android sees no need in showing you APN settings for networks that don’t match your SIM card. In reality, Android devices usually ship with a large number of pre-configured APN settings, but only the ones that match the MCC and MNC corresponding to the provider of your SIM card will be listed.

Changing the MCC and MNC fields for an APN setting is not recommended (if your device allows it). Instead, if you want to configure an APN for a different carrier, it’s recommended to insert a SIM card that corresponds to that carrier first.

@Manoj, is it possible to have borders in the table ? It’s a bit messy using black theme :wink:
Thanks !

When you say

How would we know whether the device allows it or not, aside from not being able to change it? The automatic settings offered for my service provider are not consistent with the settings listed by the provider (AT&T), and when I try to update the MNC it will let me change the values but the values will not save. Is this a property set by the device, and is there a workaround to update it?

I was having problems getting my Teracube running /e/os working on Ting (with T-Mobile as the actual carrier). A combination of looking at the suggested APN settings here and when I booted up an regular Pixel 4 running regular Android got me what I needed for the settings. The ones listed above are slightly different than the ones that were on the Pixel and the ones that ultimately worked. I’m putting them here for completeness. The one value that was different than above was MNC which is 240 rather than the 260 listed above. My phone didn’t have an MTU setting but I’m leaving this in. There was a bearer setting which turned out to be all of the options and then some on the Teracube. I’m not sure if leaving that as “unspecified” would have worked or not. :

carrier=“T-Mobile US LTE”
mcc=“310”
mnc=“240”
apn=“fast.tmobile.com
mmsc=“http://mms.msg.eng.t-mobile.com/mms/wapenc
type=“default,supl,mms,ia”
protocol=“IPV4”
roaming_protocol=“IPV4”
mtu=“1440”
Bearer=“HSPA,EVDO_B,eHRPD,LTE,HSPAP,GPRS,EDGE,UMTS,US95A,US95B,1xRTT,EVDO_0,EVDO_A,HSDPA,NR,HSUPA”
