iOS6 losing its 3G cellular data settings – fix for Belgium10 Oct 2012
I upgraded my iPhone 4S to the new iOS6 the day it came out. As I expected, I had to reconfigure the cellular data settings (‘APN’). For some reason they always get lost during major OS updates. However, I have noticed the last weeks that, every now and then, my 3G connection stops working, and when I check the APN settings, they have disappeared. My colleagues, with iPhones and iPads on different cellular operators also have this problem. So for them, for me, and for anyone else who has this problem: here are the settings for the Belgian operators.
- APN: internet.proximus.be
- APN: APN: iphone.mobistar
- APN: gprs.base.be
- APN: web.be
- APN: telenetwap.be
- APN: internet.bmbpartner.be
These are the most common ones.
The procedure is: goto General/Cellular/Cellular Data Network, verify they are all empty, fill in the correct values, leave the Cellular menu, switch your phone to “Airplane Mode” for 10 seconds, and then switch that back off. You should see the 3G logo appear again.
