I feel kind of silly for falling foul of this, but I guess it’s just a case of going against what you’re used to.
I was looking for a way to check on my MMS settings on Android. On just about every other phone I’ve used it’s been a submenu of the messaging application, so that’s where I went — except I couldn’t find anything pertaining to access point settings! I mean, if one phone does it one way, all phones do it that way, right? Right?
Wrong. Turns out Android hides the settings in — guess what — its Settings menus! That’s good, because it’s centralised. It makes sense when you think about it. Honest.
Anyway, to find these elusive settings, just follow these instructions:
- Go to the Home screen.
- Press Menu.
- Select Settings.
- Select Wireless controls.
- Select Mobile network settings.
- Select Access Point Names.
- Finally, select an access point to edit, or press Menu to create a new APN or reset to the defaults that shipped with the phone.
Have fun with changing access point settings! Mmm.
