Default How do I re-enter the APN for Hotspot Net access

Please Login to Remove!

When I went to activate the Hotspot feature on my 9900 w/7.1 OS, I mistyped the APN. Now, although, I have a hotspot that my iPad2 finds, I cannot access the Net.

I am on AT&T with grandfathered unlimited data, and I believe the APN should have been entered as wap.cingular with no name or code, but I can not find how to enter it. The entry screen popped up the first time I went to set up the hotspot, but hasn't again.

How do I manually enter the APN for hotspot Net access, and is wap.cingular the correct entry?

Thanks much

It turns out I did not need to re-enter the APN, which is now "phone".

One odd thing that I can easily live with is that if I have a WAP2 password, my iPad2 connects only spottily, but if I remove the need for a code, it connects every time.

I hope this helps someone else.
