  1. Tap on Settings → Wireless & Networks → Mobile NetworksAccess Point Names;
  2. Once on the APN screen, press the Options button;
  3. Tap on New APN;
  4. Enter a name into the APN Name field.

I would like to know about "number 4. Enter a name?"

What should I need to input? my a/c name? Fido's name?

If my phone card is not support LTE, what should I input for APN?


Thank you so much.

Hello Daniel26,


  Welcome to the community!


  The APN Name is just to identify this particular APN to the user. Occasionally some people use more than one service and are required to frequently switch APNs. The Name simply allows for easy identification. For simplicity's sake, you could name it Fido.


  If your phone does not support LTE, it should be using Fido-core-appl1.apn


  Hope this helps Smiley

Hey @Daniel26


Welcome to the community Smiley


You can follow the steps here to set up your phone.  For the name, you can call it whatever you like, it's just to identify the new APN. 


Let us know how it goes!
