    I need to enter an apn to get internet on a jailbroken/unlocked 3gs but I cant find the apn. I can see it on my 2g under settings/general/network/cellular data network but I can't see it on the 3gs because the 3g on/off toggle is there. Where can I find the apn.

    The carrier your phone is locked to has disabled APN settings. You can edit them by doing the following:

    Use SSH or iFile to edit the carrier.plist file in /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/<YourCarrier>. (Example – in my case it was ../Carrier Bundles/AT&T_us.bundle). Add the following:


    just after

    <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC “-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN” “”>
    <plist version=”1.0″>

    That should enable the APN settings.
