Default APN Settings. Help please.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys. So today I was playing around with my BB 8900 due to not being able to get an app working. I read somewhere that if I changed APN settings it would work...but no it did not. I somehow managed to delete my APN settings by unchecking the two boxes. I have rechecked the boxes but now I have no APN settings. So are APN settings actually important? Is there anyway I can get the settings back? I'm contemplating contacting my carrier about it. I live in Australia btw.

They are supposed to be carrier specific so it would be a good idea to contact yours to ask. Sometimes an application may work with one carrier's APN settings but not with another's. I have actually used APN settings for T-Mobile with my handheld on AT&T's network and as best I could tell everything worked. However, I use AT&T's settings now and plan to keep it that way.

this issue has come up several times and no one has ever posted this can do wonders... surprised all those who bash people who dont use the search button don't bother to google this.
