scho047: sorry for asking stupid question.....ive been reading up on this topic of apn issue....does this only apply to prepaid sim cards???i am currently on simcard that has always been on plan... you choose one from the beginning..and can access internet from my current phone.. which is not an iphone by the way....so when i do get the phone outright...as i hope to tale it oversseas with me when i travel and use the local sims there....so can i just buy the iphone outright... use this patch to get the apn setting done.. and pop in my sim (plan one) and should work fine with calls, text, data at a casual rate n wifi ????sorry for asking this again... am rather confused thats all...cheers
If you want to use data here with your You Choose plan then you could use unlockit.co.nz to enable data (set a different APN).
Overseas, with a foreign SIM card in the phone, the APN settings should become visible and you won't need to use unlockit.co.nz to set the APN.
