Click & hold on the file, use the pop-up menu and choose open with text editor, su will ask permission, Grant it. Add the following two lines at the bottom of the page:


Save and exit, reboot your phone.
Now check APN settings, you should be able to edit it now.

How this helped.

Note: # codes won't work if these 2 lines are present in the build.prop, simply put # in front of the lines after you finish editing your APN settings like shown below:


By putting # it disables those 2 lines. Whenever you need to edit the APN, just remove the #.

I've been looking all over, found a couple solutions that haven't worked.. Not sure whether to start a new thread or what..

Has anyone found a clear way to make the Verizon Note 3 APNs editable so I can add a new one or modify the existing without using another sim card? I tried editing the buildprop, but it ended up getting rid of a bunch of settings, including the apns.

I'm not moving to a new network or anything, I'm simply trying a fix to allow me to use adblock without it having some unintended issues being unable to send or recieve mms while wifi is connected, a pretty widespread bug from what I've seen. Not even sure if the apn modification would help but it's really annoying to me that it's locked out anyway. Is there a buildprop edit that works with note 3? Or does it work but my settings are messed up?

((With adblock disabled, when I send an mms the wifi icon disappears and the net takes over and sends it out normally, with adblock on the net pops up and seems to be trying to send, but it hangs forever and the wifi symbol never ends up disappearing per normal operation, heard of a port based workaround, doesn't look like the bug will be fixed anytime soon.))
