How do I check my APN (mobile internet) settings?

An Access Point Name (APN) provides all the details that your device needs to connect to mobile data. If you are setting up a new device or putting your SIM card into a device for the first time, your network operator should send you their APN details in a configuration message. Your APN details will be different depending on your network operator. You can find out more information about your specific APN on your network's website.

Please note: the steps to find the APN settings will differ depending on your device and its operating system. Find out how to check what operating system your device is using
