I thought device users would be all over this topic. APNs seem to trip up
customer connectivity pretty often...
The OTA message comes with a bunch of stuff. Its main use is for updating the SIM card to let it know what its phone number is. As for the APN updates, do you recall what it wanted to change it to?
As noted, not a lot of difference except that it was split into separate parts, and specified authentication
type PAP instead of none. One part was specifically for MMS, with "APN type" set to "mms", and the other
was the typical pointer to fast.t-mobile.com for "default,mms".
Between this confusion and the fact that my messaging app has some kind of failure-return bug where
MMS download is concerned, it took a *long* time to straighten all this out on my particular phone.
It's all working nicely at this point, I was just curious about the minor discrepancies and how "loose"
certain parts of an APN config can be and still work.
Yeah, I am not too sure on that We have not had any reports of the OTA causing phones not to work.
