A mobile phone without cellular network is like a body without soul, and a smartphone without data connection is pretty much like a body without flesh and blood. Today, we depend more and more on our phones and tablets for using surfing the web and communicating on the social media.

The network service providers throughout the world 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. If you are from the United States, you must be using a smartphone with network and data services from carriers like AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc. Below, we have listed the Access Point Settings for all major networks available in the US.
