Dear all,

 

I had a Telekom contract in Germany. Now I changed to Congstar and inserted the SIM card. But there is no netweork access. I researched and I need to change the APN settings. However, these are not accessable in the settings menu. It is somehow hidden. What shall I do?

 

Kind regards

    Talk to Congstar about your difficulty.

    OK. The solution was that Apple needs to unlock the handy, meaning to open the simlock.

    I thought simlock is only applicable if you buy a handy that is right from the beginning locked to a specific carrier. But apparently Apple also adds a simlock if you buy a handy without simlock and adds this after you chose your first carrier. Then they have to release it afterwards. Makes no sense to me. But it adds restrictions, so Apple likes it...

    As you know APN settings are required for Network access for: Cellular Data, MMS and Internet tethering.

     

    These are dependent of the service provider. All providers do not allow blanket access. You need to buy plans and provider will allow appropriately.
