Mobile phones are primarily associated with making and receiving calls. However, with simple phones becoming smartphones, things have radically changed. More than anything, people now find themselves more engaged in using the internet and spending time on the social media sites. Priorities have been shifting but communication and infotainment lay at the core of smartphone usage.

Network providers throughout the world now make more money from people using data on their phone than making calls. As soon as you insert a new SIM card on your device, the carrier sends the APN (Access Point Name) settings automatically. If you got a carrier-branded device, it must have come with preset APN settings for instant data connection.

Usually, we don’t have to bother about settings up Access Point Name credentials manually. However, if you might get into a situation where you have to set the APN settings manually, you would have to contact your network operator or search the web. Today, we are going to list the APN settings for all major network providers of the UK.
