Things to Note About Using APN on iPad

  1. 1
    Wrong APN settings lead to zero functionality and may lead you to get charged on extra services.
    Therefore, if you are expecting to use the internet heavily, make sure that your APN settings are setup accordingly. In some cases, it may be best to have your service provider actually be the one to do the setting as they will know better what to set on your phone.

    If you are subscribed to a limited data plan, it is better to limit the number of apps that are on push notification.
    If you have too many apps open for push notification, it is highly likely that your data plan consumption will be a lot because it is running even when you are not actively checking.
