Re: APNs - why 2 options, & which one to choose?

Hi there!

I have the same APN's in my S7 Edge. Having looked through the settings the only difference between the two is under APN type the WDS APN does not have the MMS tag. All other settings are identical and would work for mobile data at home and abroad.

On our devices the MMS tag is not important as we have a separate APN for MMS settings which allow us to send MMS messages.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for responding.

So it doesn't make a difference if I choose between 'Virgin Media Mobile Internet' or 'WDS'?

Re: APNs - why 2 options, & which one to choose?

It certainly makes no difference to me whichever is selected as the settings with each APN are identical. I can't explain why there are two APNs but it won't cause you any issues Smiley Happy
