Sky APN settings are a pain in the backside.

just transferred away from Three as l was offered a much better deal (half of what l usually pay) however the APN settings have been a pain, spent the last couple of hours trying to get my data connection back.

the weird part is that Skys APN settings contained the data l used but l only used a fraction of their APN data to create a new one based on data l found online elsewhere, thought l would share it as it may come in useful for others.

That seems unusual - when you first used the SIM, did they not send you a text with a configuration profile in it so you'd automatically be set up?

Their APN is simple enough though - just 'mobile.sky' with no username or password. Maybe the APN type of 'internet' wasn't selected the first time round?

If mine throws a wobbly I sign into my Sky account on a PC and resend the settings to the phone.

yeah thats how l started, all the settings matched their pages, however got no dice with their settings, however the weird part is all the information listed within the screen capture does exist within their config, so l created a new apn under a different name and just used the details l posted and it worked (though it was showing 4g throughout on my network bar it just didnt work until l used the details l found)

If mine throws a wobbly I sign into my Sky account on a PC and resend the settings to the phone.
use the details l posted just create a new apn, havent had an issue since l switched to them and stopped using the config Sky sent.

while those were listed as correct (they were even the ones l got sent) l just couldnt get them to work, the ones posted however worked as an alternative, couldnt tell you why the ones sky send didnt work for me or the reason why the ones l shared in the screencap do.
