    Been having some weird MMS related problems in the last couple of days. To try to resolve them i've been trying to edit the APN settings, however, i've got 4(!) APN setttings on my phone which are locked, can't be edited or deleted. I'm sure i could edit them at some point in the past, but now all of them have little padlock icons next to them.

    Phone was purchased unlocked but pre-configured for vodafone uk. Am i missing something obvious or has my brain gone wrong?

    Can you just add a new one, with the right settings, and select that?

    I can, but i kinda wanted to remove the others because to be honest i'm not 100% sure that the phone is picking up its settings correctly - wanted to clear everything out and start again from scratch (dont particularly want to do a factory reset if i can help it though).

    And also now that i've noticed that theyre locked it's really bugging me.

    What's also weird is that 2 of the APNs cant even be selected. :thinking:
