Smile CM7 APN problem FIXED!!! (hopefully)

Hey guys, I've tried everything to get the cm7 APN problem fixed. No data connection sucks. Anyways, this is what I did-
1. Turn on WiFi and make sure you're connected.
2. Go into the Market, search "APN Backup".
3. Download the program called "APNsBU (ROOT)"
4. Open the program and click on the "Backup APNs" button.
5. After that's done, click on the "Restore APNs" button. It will prompt you to reboot your phone.
6. After the reboot, open the APNsBU program, click on the menu button on your phone and click "View APNs".
7. You should be able to see "Simple" and "T-Mobile US." Turn off your WiFi and you should be good to go!

Hi, I had the same problem last night after I installed CM7. The APN disappeared and I could not connect through my data plan. What I did was I just pulled the battery out and put it back in and re-boot the phone. I just pulled the battery out when the phone was still on. I went back in APN and voila, I saw "Simple" and "T-Mobile US" again. After that I did a few more re-boot to my phone due to I flashed new Gapps, the APN problem didn't come back.

I can't say that I've tried this, but every time my APNs go missing, going into ROM Manager and running Fix Permissions and then rebooting makes them come back. Maybe that trick will work for others too.

Hard reboot does the trick for me. Every time. Vol up + power.

Hard Reset and battery pull, No success
APN backup trick, can't see any APNs
Rom Manager fix permissions.

Nothing works, APNs are gone for good, no data connection and can't add an APN, blank screen nothing happens.

:eek: Searched everyone on google and these forums i can't seem to find a fix :eek:

Had to wipe everything, reinstall latest nightly cm7, which worked but when i restored everything with titantium backup the problem came back so must have been some settings that were wrong. Only restored the apps i trusted with data, and everything is good now. What a pain

apn, cm7
