    It is not uncommon to see its MMS and Internet services malfunction in certain cases, after a change of operator or the purchase of a new smartphone for example. The configuration of the APN solves this problem most of the time, we explain how to correct this for a smartphone with a Sosh plan.

    What is an APN?

    The APN - Access Point Name - is, as its name suggests, an access point that brings together all the connection information for your mobile network. This information therefore differs depending on your operator. Although this data is generally configured and applied automatically by your smartphone, it sometimes happens that this is not the case, causing malfunctions of the MMS services or the connection to the Internet.

    If you notice a failure of these services which is not resolved after a simple restart of your smartphone, then it is advisable to check if the APN settings are correct in order to reconfigure them if necessary.

    Android and iOS: a single method to configure an APN

    To configure the APN according to your operator, it is simply necessary to have the correct information, which we will give you below, and then find the path among the settings of your phone in order to fill in this information. This path is different depending on whether you are using an Android or iOS smartphone.

    • For Android, the path to configure the access point may be different depending on the version of your operating system, sometimes also depending on the brand of your smartphone. Typically, just go to the "Wireless & Network" settings to find the "Access Point Names (APN)" section.

    • For iPhones, the APN configuration is done via the Cellular data > Options > Cellular data network path.

    Information to configure the Sosh APN

    Once you have found the APN settings, on Android or iOS, all you have to do is look and compare the APN values 鈥嬧媤ith the information given below. If they do not correspond to these configurations, then there is a good chance that your various problems with connecting to the Internet or sending and receiving MMS are due to these incorrect settings.

    You will then need to configure two APNs, the first corresponds to the mobile internet service, while the second allows the MMS service to work correctly.

    Note that all the data provided below are the same, or almost, for Orange as for Sosh.
