Maybe it happened to you when you went abroad, or when you changed operators, you can not connect to the internet or can not send pictures. If that is the case, It’s likely because of the APN seted up on your HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro. So we made the decision to draft this article to resolve this problem. We will initially see what a APN is. We will see in a second time how to configure an APN on your HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro. Finally, we will see in what situations you need to modify the APN on the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro.
What is an APN
The APN means Access Point Name. The APN therefore represents a set of connection data. This connection data allows your HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro to connect to the net and receive MMS. An incorrectly configured APN may therefore prevent your HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro from receiving MMS or connecting to the internet. You have to know that each operator has a different APN of their own.
The right way to configure an APN on your HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro
If you’d like to configure an APN on your HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro, you will have to navigate to the Settings menu. When you are there, go to Network and Internet and Mobile Network . You need to navigate to Advanced Settings and finally Access Point Names . When you are there, you should click on the three dots at the top right of the screen and choose New APN . You will then access a form that you will have to 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 quickly findable. You have to repeat twice the operation on your HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro. In truth, you need an APN for internet and an APN for MMS.
In which case should you configure an APN on your HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro?
Typically, you do not automatically need to configure an APN on your HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro as this is usually done automatically. However, there are some cases that need the configuration of an APN on your HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro. This is for example the case if you purchased your used HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro and that the person who sold it to you was with a different operator than yours. This could also be the case if you’re traveling abroad and therefore change your SIM card.
