Is there a way of removing the default APN on a Galaxy Note3 (running Android 4.3)? I have the phone rooted.

Thanks!

You can't and there is no real reason to bother to remove it anyway. Just use the new entry.

You can remove it, but it requires a SQL editor.
Go to data/data/com.android.providers.telephony/databases and edit nwk_info.db
Select the "carriers" table and locate the T-Mobile US LTE / 310260 entry (should be line 26)
Scroll all the way to the far right and change the editable value from 0 to 1.
Restart your phone and you should be able to edit the entry.

The other option is to edit /system/etc/apns-conf.xml directly.
Remember the first rule in tweaking your system... make a backup copy first.

See, this is the type of answer I like to get... not "create a new one" or "you don't need to remove it".. If I want to remove it, LET ME REMOVE IT, it's my phone!

Thanks rjohnstone (for telling me how to edit the entry) and mdiaz (for the APN types)! BTW used SqlLite, great app, only $2.99 on Play store and works VERY well!
