Try using the voice dialer app and say open access point name

I dont think there's a voice dialer app. Instead there is S-voice. I tried saying open Access Point Name and she said There are no matching applications.

Here's a flashable ZIP of the apns that may restore functionality after flashing sprint ROMs..... Galaxy_s3_apns.zip I'm about to check this theory...

You will still probably need a deodexed version of SecMms.apk to drop in to the sprint Touchwiz ROMs; and not to mention you'll have to modify the build.prop to more closely match ours. I was messing with this last night but had to get some sleep for wortk today but i was able to get most of the touchwiz ROMs to boot w/o MMS and i could not confirm 4G either...
It would seem from the APNs and the entries in the build.prop that our phone is running a "Chameleon Profile" on the Sprint 4G LTE network so that we are seen as different from a sprint user....
