I wonder what determines why a certain phone needs to have the APN entered manually. I have a Sony Xperia X Compact which I believe is a year older than the OP's XZ1. When I signed up recently for a 2nd account with PM, I put in the new sim and the data worked flawlessly. Just curious.


I agree with the wonder. I first had a BB running OS10. No problem. Then I got an S7 running A8. No problem. Then for another account and to dabble around with a Nokia running Windows 8, I did have to fiddle with the APN. Then I "trialed" an A31 running A10. No problem.

So I wonder too.

This is completely dependednt on the device manufactuer and them having the setttings pre-programmed into the phone's software.
