Offline APN Database is for international travelers who like saving money on cell voice and data service by using a local SIM card purchased at their destination. The app contains a locally stored database with over 1300 different APN codes for carriers all over the globe. The app will be updated whenever the list is modified.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
If you find a SIM that does not have a valid APN in the database please email me the settings displayed on the first screen so we can find the correct settings together. I would like the APN list to be as complete as possible, but I will need help from everyone. Please check against the database using the free version first.

I wrote this app for my own travels, so I have a personal desire for it to work whenever I happen to be. I don't want to buy a SIM I can't get the settings for either.

How does this app save money?
Most cell providers charge outrageous fees for international roaming. You can avoid international roaming fees by purchasing a local SIM. In many countries you can get one for less than $10.

In order to do this you need a phone that is not carrier locked (this is not the same as rooting). You can get your phone's unlock code and instructions on how to use it from your carrier. Most of the time you can get this over the phone from your service provider.

Using a local SIM will give you a local phone number. However, If the purchased SIM card includes data getting an internet connection requires the service providers APN settings. This can be difficult to get if you do not speak the local language.

You can learn more about APN settings and how they work here:

This app contains a huge database of known APN settings for SIM cards. Run the app and search for your SIM's APN settings. Then you can add these settings automatically, or in the case of Ice Cream Sandwich users copy and paste the individual settings into a new APN entry.

PROFESSIONAL VERSION:
The professional version displays the SIM phone number if available, and adds the ability to browse the included APN database by country. This will allow people to check on what APN strings are in the system before traveling to a new destination.

NOTE FOR ICE CREAM SANDWICH AND JELLY BEAN USERS:
The current release of Android has disabled the ability to add APN settings with 3rd party software. You will need to use the copy buttons (see the screen shot) and paste the settings into a new APN entry manually. As of now the only way around this limitation requires root access (do this at your own risk) and placing the app in the /system directory.

APPLICATION LIMITATIONS:
This application will not give your phone signal where it normally will not get it.
This application it meant for phones with a GSM antenna. If your phone does not have a SIM slot this application will do nothing for you.

My email is provided for support with the application. If you have a GSM phone and have entered a SIM card that was not provided with the phone and the application does not have your APN setting please email me. If you have any other issue please contact your service provider.

    I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy the Pro version, but after the ease of use if the free version I definitely wanted the full version so I could access all of the APNs before traveling. I have a rooted S3 and added this app to the system. This allowed me to insert a local SIM card, open the app, and write to the APN list on my phone. This was especially important as the 4.1 & 4.2 version of Verizon

    Would love to see functionality for dual Sim phones to be able to select which Sim to scan and deploy the APN settings to.

    I often switch devices, and the APN settings aren't always preserved. This is exactly the sort of time-saver I was looking for.

    I am currently in Bahrain and needed to get a sim for my Motorola phone. After purchasing the added data plan, I was informed that viva did not have APN settings for my phone and that the money I paid for the added data was not refundable. I searched the internet with no luck, and by chance found this app browsing the google store. Downloaded the app and within seconds I was up ne running with ful
