    Hi,

    I've come to encounter the term Preferred Access point name (APN) , but I don't know what it refers to and what does it control on my HTC dream phone. Could anyone provide some light on this ?

    basically each serice provider has their own apn settings, for examples T-mobile may have different apn settings that Orange ( uk networks)
    usually a phone will automatically fill them in

    you have to enter it your self if:

    You unlock a branded mobile phone ... eg if i have t-mobile branded phone, then get it unlocked at a shop, then put an orange sim card in it
    the internet and possible calls will not work, so you have to manually change the apn to orange, as it will be tmobile as defailt
