A week or two ago I updated to the latest version of the Resurrection Remix Rom. It seems this wiped my APN settings as I needed to use my mobile data today only to find that nothing was happening (no icons appearing in the status bar). The thing is, the link on the T-Mobile website that sends the text with APN settings to your phone doesn't work. I have tried manually setting the APN settings using different sources, but none of them work. To double check, I restarted my phone after each change, but still, nothing.

I am based in the UK and I'm on T-Mobile. Does anyone have a working APN config for T-Mobile that I can use?

Thanks in advance!

You can call T-Mobile and request APN for your device. In most countries, the carrier can also send a config sms that sets up the APN.
Also please make sure that Mobile Data is set to ON. It is overlooked in so many cases.

PS: Was your phone carrier-locked?

APN: everywhere

Leave everything else blank.

I'd guess you have other problems than just APN settings, try a full wipe and flash again.

boomer, that worked instantly, as for the full wipe & reflash... That'll have to wait.
