    Can anyone help me on this?

    I just picked up a second Samsung Galaxy Nexus i9250 (GSM), and I am not able to either edit (or add) a new A P N (Access Point Name).

    Nothing appears in the list. This is an unlocked i9250 global version, running a month-to-month T-Mobile cellular service SIM card.

    My other (first) i9250 is the same device, and has no trouble running T-Mobile (and, I can set/edit the APNs on this device).

    Its Android 4.0.4.

    Both phones are identical, but I absolutely cannot set the APN in my second i9250 .... thus, no phone/text/data service (doesn't even show my phone number!)

    All help will be greatly appreciated!

    Smetimes you have to enter the info manually. In 'Mobile network settings' > 'Access Point Names' press the menu button (three squares, bottom right) > from the pop-up select 'New APN' and then enter Tmo's APN settings, wehich you should be able to copy from your other phone. There is no reason you would n ot be able to get to that point unless your firmware is corrupt.

    That's the usual procedure; I tried it a dozen times; can't add anything. Empty list. Can't add and can't edit.

    Unfortunately, you're only left with restoring the firmware then.

    Bad firmware; I had it replaced with an i9250 GSM, unlocked (in white). Thanks to all.
