If your device does not automatically set up your carrier's APN on the device after inserting the SIM card, you may need to manually enter your carrier's APN settings.

  1. Note: You can verify that your settings are working by turning off Wi-Fi and accessing the internet using your cellular network. If it does not work, restart your device. Often rebooting the device is necessary for new APN settings to start working.
