Re: No data connection, cannot reset APN,any ideas?

I see that this was dated in March of last year.  Here it is almost a year later and I have the identical problem.  Surely someone has resolved this problem at some time.

I have installed a PM sim card and I cannot change the apn from telus to PM.

Re: No data connection, cannot reset APN,any ideas?

 @tavesone : Did you try all the suggestions in this year old thread you found? There's also an unofficial app to edit the APN on 8.1. There's allegedly a text that the mods might send that sets it as well but that seems rather YMMV as far as a mod that will do it.

What exact make/model/submodel and OS version are you using?

 @tavesone :There's an unofficial app that has been known to work for A9. No guarantees or warranties. You would likely need to give it some permissions as it's not on the Play store.

@tavesone 

Well known issue with some android phones/manufacturers.  

 

Here is another thread:

As mentioned before, you have different options to solve the issue.  Freedom mobile SIM trick, APN app and contacting moderator team.

@tavesone try using the sim in the other sim slot

Re: No data connection, cannot reset APN,any ideas?

 @tavesone : Maybe another option is this site Option #5. My Samsung S7 running A8 can already change APN's so I can't really know but give it a whirl. Let us know.

 

Edit: Earlier thread referenced in my first reply is here.

Didn't work first time around, I'll give it another go.  I had no problem with the PM sim card on my Samsung Galaxy.  Just on my Oukitel c17 pro.
