It may have happened to you when you travel abroad, or if you’ve changed operators, you cannot connect to the web or can not send MMS. If that is the case, this is probably due to the APN configured on your ASUS ROG Phone 6D. So we decided to draft this post to resolve this issue. We will initially see what a APN is. We will see in a second time how to configure an APN on your ASUS ROG Phone 6D. Finally, we will see in what situations you have to change the APN on the ASUS ROG Phone 6D.
What is an APN
The APN means Access Point Name. The APN therefore represents a set of connection data. This connection data allows your ASUS ROG Phone 6D to connect to the net and receive MMS. An improperly configured APN can so prevent your ASUS ROG Phone 6D from receiving MMS or connecting to the internet. You should know that each operator has a different APN of their own.
The right way to configure an APN on your ASUS ROG Phone 6D
If you’d like to set up an APN on your ASUS ROG Phone 6D, you must go to the Settings menu. When you are there, go to Network and Internet and Mobile Network . You’ll have to go to Advanced Settings and lastly Access Point Names . When you are there, you must click the three dots at the top right of the screen and select New APN . You’ll then access a form that you must fill in with the data of your operator. One example is, if you are at Vodafone , you must find the Vodafone APN data on the net and copy it into the form. Almost always, the APN of each operator are easily findable. You must do it again 2 times the procedure on your ASUS ROG Phone 6D. In truth, you will need an APN for internet and an APN for MMS.
In which case should you set up an APN on your ASUS ROG Phone 6D?
In most cases, you do not automatically need to configure an APN on your ASUS ROG Phone 6D as this is usually done automatically. However, there are some situations that require the configuration of an APN on your ASUS ROG Phone 6D. This is for example the case if you bought your used ASUS ROG Phone 6D and that the person who sold it to you was with a different operator than yours. This may also be the case if you’re traveling abroad and therefore change your SIM card.
