How do you remove APN locks on Android?

Answered by Antonio Sutton

To remove APN locks on Android, you can follow these steps:

1. Open your app drawer and locate the APN Backup & Restore app. If you don’t have it installed, you can download it from the Google Play Store.

2. Once you have opened the app, you will see a list of APNs that are currently stored on your device. Take note of any APNs that you need to keep, as they will be deleted during this process.

3. Tap on the option to “Delete APNs” within the app. This will prompt a warning message to appear, informing you that all APNs will be deleted.

4. Confirm the deletion by tapping “Yes” on the warning screen. This will initiate the removal of all the APNs stored on your device.

5. Once the process is complete, all locked APNs should be removed from your Android device.

It’s important to note that removing APN locks may have consequences, such as losing access to certain network settings or services. Therefore, it’s recommended to only remove APN locks if you are certain of the implications and have alternative APN settings or configurations available.

Personal experience: I have encountered situations where removing APN locks on Android devices was necessary, such as when troubleshooting network connectivity issues or when switching between different mobile carriers. In such cases, it’s crucial to ensure that you have the correct APN settings for your specific network provider before removing any APN locks.
