Default [Q] APN Entry?

Hey guys,

Just ordered a Galaxy S5 from Verizon. I travel internationally a lot so I wanted to double check to make sure you can enter APNs into the device as it comes out of the box (e.g., fully stock). Can someone double check?

Obviously I can root the phone if I have to - but I'd rather not.

Thoughts?

Thumbs up Foreign SIM success

I not only added an APN, I actually successfully used a foreign SIM for both voice and data in my stock Verizon S5.

The + on my APNs screen is disabled so I can't add a new one. Anyone ideas?

Add apn feature will only be available if you're using a non Verizon sim card.

Sent from my C811 4G using XDA Premium 4 mobile app
