How to Manually Configure APN Settings for AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint

We are living in Twitter and Instagram age where having no access to internet on your device is really frustrating. Internet has become important in our daily life. We use it to buy things online, do our study research, for entertainment and to share the important moments of our life with friends and family.

But having a phone without cellular network…

Is really annoying.

Have you altered the APN settings?

Sometimes it happens you or kids may have accidentally changed the settings and you won’t have access to 3G/4G LTE data on your device. It’s not a big issue and can be easily fixed.

There is also an easy way but that might take sometime. Call your network support agent and they’ll send you the configurations in SMS. Then you can easily save them with just a tap.

You’ll need to manually set the APN settings…
