iPhone missing APN Settings

I recently had my iPhone (4, 16GB, GSM from AT&T) unlocked (by AT&T, and saw confirmation in iTunes).  I am now using a prepaid carrier, and needed to change my APN settings for there system, however the APN settings are not available in the phone (Settings General Network), the only option I have is Cellular Data (on/off).  I wound up using unlockit to load an APN profile for my carrier, home come if the phone is unlocked we cannot change the APN settings (something we need to do in order to use data on ohter carriers)?  AT&T unlocked the iPhone for me but all the settings still point to AT&T unless I use alternative means.

 

I did not know if I was mising something or if this feature is not enabling properly on unlocked devices, or what was happening, I was hoping maybe some other people have figured out how to make this option show, or if they have not maybe Apple or AT&T need to see that the Ulocked devices are not able to change data settigns from AT&T settings, I am not sure what is happening, but I would like to fix it (hopefully, or at least make it noted that it is a problem).

 

I have tried Reloading iOS from iTunes (recovery) and that pops up the Message Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked in iTunes, but I do not see the APN settings, I do not want to Jailbreak the iPone and I should not have to since I have it unlocked, I just want to be able to change the settings to allow other carrier data plans.

 

Thank you all,

why No APN Settings on iPhone 3GS on 6.1.3

NO 3G data activation!

APN Settings

I have a factory-unlocked iPhone 4G. I use a prepay service in Canada with unlimited Internet usage. The CSP is 7-11 SpeakOut, a MVNO that operates on the Rogers network. Voice and data services work fine.
I am currently in USA. I have subscribed to a pre-pay service with data. Ive replaced Canadian SIM with American SIM. American CSP is also 7-11 SpeakOut, however, in USA, SpeakOut works on the AT&T network. Voice service is working fine. Data is not. When attempting to connect to Internet, error messages advise that data services have not been activated (CSP does not offer data service) or that server cannot be reached. I have confirmed with SpeakOut USA that data service is active on my prepay service. The service bar shows the presence of 3G or (occasionally E for Edge service). iPhone shows SpeakOut as the network but it shows AT&T 9.0 as the carrier. SpeakOut customer service provided the following APN settings:
APN: wap.cingular
User Name: WAP@cingularGPRS.COM
Password: CINGULAR1
Proxy Server: left blank
Port: left blank
These settings do not result in any data connection. I get the same error messages as before.
One point of clarification, a company called Ztar is actually the CSP. 7-11 is actually a sales distribution channel for Ztars services in Canada and USA.
I suspect that the APN settings that I was given are incorrect and need to be changed. But to what ?

APN settings hidden

Hello,
I have a iPhone 3G unlocked (after two years with my telephone provider).
OS 4.2.1 (8C148), Model MB496B, Modem firmware 05.15.04.
I need to manually set the APN settings to use the Spanish MasMovil operator (APN name: internetmas),
but those settings are hidden in my iphone.
That is, I go to: Settings -> General -> Network,
and after turning Enable 3G ON,
I can only turn Cellular Data ON or OFF,
but I dont have a menu to configure the Cellular Data or APN.
A colleague told me that Apple needs to send me a program to unblock the hidden APN settings.
But I didnt find info about this in their free website support.
Any idea?
Best regards,
David

Question about APN settings and iPhone Configuration Utility

Good morning,
I recently bought an iPhone 4 and gave my 3G (factory unlocked) to my girlfriend.
As she doesnt have a data plan, I have turned off the Cellular Data in the settings. Everything was ok until she wanted to send a MMS. Indeed, she cant send nor receive MMS with Cellular Data turned off...and theres no option in the settings to edit the APN settings.
After browsing a few forums on the subject, it seems it is possible to edit the APN settings via the iPhone Configuration Utility.
What I want is leave the cellular data ON (so that she can send and receive MMS) but enter fake APN settings in the iPhone configuration utility so that the phone cant connect to the web using cell data.
Would this work? If yes, can someone briefly explain how to do it?
Thanks in advance.

Cannot access change APN with iPhone 4.1 Celluar Data Networking Missing

I updated my iPhone 3GS from 4.0 to 4.1 last night and this morning I notice when trying to retrieve mail I receive the error You are not subscribed to a cellular data service and I cannot access mail, the web or use any data related applications.
I do have the data plan and yesterday it was working fine. I confirmed with AT&T I do have the data plan.
I thought maybe my APN was deleted so I wanted to confirm it. But now when I access Settings->General->Network there is no Cellular Data Networking option and in fact it has been replaced with Set Up Internet Tethering. I cannot access my APN settings.
I reset the network settings, rebooted and ejected/inserted the SIM card however this field/option does not return.
Questions:
1) With iOS 4.1, was the APN field moved?
2) Is there a reason it would disappear?
I confirmed I do have 4.1 and AT&T says my data plan is correct, active and did not change overnight. I simply want to confirm my APN says wap.cingular but the field is missing!
I am frustrated since all I can receive are calls and text messages but cannot retrieve mail or surf the internet.
My apologies if this is a known issue however I appreciate your direction.

HT5014 iphone 3g is unlocked but cannot change the APN to get Straight Talk MMS & Data

Most instructions Ive seen are not very helpful to get to the page to enable editing APN and other information needed to begin to get MMS & Data from Straight Talk... otherwise, phone currently makes and receives calls and will do some limited texts. AT&T advises it is an unlocked phone, however hookling to iTunes and doing a backup and restore has accomplished nothing.  Since it is backed up (several ways over a couple days), what if I go through an erase process then restore with the Straight Talk sim card

HT4061 3GS stuck on connect to iTunes screen and keep getting error 29 at restore tried 5 different batteries all with different apn numbers what apn should my batterie have

Keep getting error 29 I have tried 5 batteries now all with different apn numbers which is the correct batterie to use in my 3GS

Thank you in advance!

Is there a quick way to change many iPhone settings based on location

Heres my issue: to save battery life, when at home i use wifi and turn off 3g; when commuting to work on subway (where i get no at&t signal) i turn on airport mode so the iphone doesnt search for a signal during my whole commute; when at work i dont have wifi access so i turn wifi off and 3g on.
What i would like to do is being able to toggle between these networks settings easily. for example, is there an app that allows you to set up different (for lack of a better term) profiles and have different iPhone settings associated with that profile?
Thanks.

Using Image capture to download images wont let me change settings

I was using image capture to put my iPhone photos onto my computer and I select the option to use the same settings everytime, but now I need to change the settings so that i can choose what pictures to load onto my cpmputer. Image Capture is not allowing my to do or change anything, it just automatically download the images form my phone(it does only do new ones, but i cant even change the folder to download to, or if i want to change what device I am getting images from, I am not allowed to do so)
Also, just recently i opened Image Capture and it says it is getting the images but when I go to the folder the pictures are not uploaded onto the computer, and like above I cant change any of my preferences to see if maybe one of them would be causing this to happen.
