    Default Correct APN settings for OS7

    Apologies if this is already in a thread - a search did not turn up anything.

    I am having some website oddities - wondering if it related to APN settings.

    On my 9800 and previous BBs, the default APN settings were:

    APN settings: ENABLED
    APN: wap.cingular
    APN authentication: ENABLED
    APN User name: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
    Password: CINGULAR1

    Now on my 9810, the APN name is: phone

    And, APN authentication is NOT enabled.

    If anyone can confirm which is correct, I would appreciate it very much.

    these are my exact settings on my 9860

    PHONE is the APN being used for almost everything now. References to Cingular seem to be on the out these days.

    Similarly, ISP.CINGULAR is being replaced with BROADBAND.

    Default THE APN error with 9810 solved with AT&T

    After days of seaching, I was finally able to get the correct APN settings for OS 7
    Go into device, advanced settings, TCP IP, then
    APN Settings enabled Check box
    APN: wap.cingular (remove the word phone)
    APN: Authenication Enabled leave box unchecked
    username for APN: leave blank
    password for APN: leave blank

    This worked on OS 7.0.0.261 (1355)

    I've heard places that the phone APN is used for 4G speeds. The old wap.cingular will not provide 4G speeds, even if the radio connection is 4G (HSPA+, LTE). I'm not sure. Some speedtests between the 2 APNs on the same 4G device would be interesting to see.
