It may have happened to you when you went abroad, or when you changed operators, you can’t connect to the internet or can not send MMS. If so, It’s presumably because of the APN configured on your Huawei Nova 10 Pro. So we made the decision to write this content to fix this issue. We will first observe what a APN is. We will see in a second time how to configure an APN on your Huawei Nova 10 Pro. Finally, we will see in what situations it is necessary to modify the APN on the Huawei Nova 10 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 Nova 10 Pro to connect to the web and receive MMS. An incorrectly configured APN may therefore prevent your Huawei Nova 10 Pro from receiving MMS or connecting to the internet. You have to know that each operator has a different APN of their own.
How you can configure an APN on your Huawei Nova 10 Pro
If you’d like to configure an APN on your Huawei Nova 10 Pro, you must navigate 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 finally Access Point Names . When you are there, you have to click on the three dots at the top right of the screen and choose New APN . You will then access a form that you must fill in with the data of your operator. For example, if you are at Vodafone , you must find the Vodafone APN data on the net and copy it into the form.

In which case should you configure an APN on your Huawei Nova 10 Pro?
