What If APN Values Are Not Added While Configuring the Smarty APN?

If I forget to add APN values while configuring the Smarty APN, I may encounter connectivity issues. Here’s what happened when I faced this situation:

  • I couldn’t access the internet or use mobile data.
  • Sending or receiving multimedia messages (MMS) became impossible.
  • There was no automatic configuration of network settings by the provider.

To avoid this, I always ensure to enter the correct APN settings provided by Smarty. If unsure, I recommend referring to their official website or contacting customer support for assistance.

Understanding APN Settings

APN stands for Access Point Name and acts as a gateway between your device and the mobile network. It comprises various components:

  • Name: A label for easy identification (e.g., “3”).
  • APN: The network identifier (e.g., “”).
  • Username: Usually left blank for Smarty.
  • Password: Typically left blank for Smarty.
  • MMSC: Multimedia Messaging Service Center address.
  • MMS Proxy: Server that facilitates sending and receiving multimedia messages.
  • MMS Port: The designated port for MMS communication.
  • APN type: Specifies the purpose (e.g., “internet + mms”).

The exact steps to locate APN settings vary depending on your device’s operating system and model. Here’s a general guide:

  • Android: Settings > Network & internet > Mobile network > Advanced > Access Point Names.
  • iOS: Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Network.
  • Windows: Settings > Network & internet > Mobile & SIM > SIM settings > Advanced options > Access point names.

My Honest Experience

In my experience, the Smarty APN and the 3 APN settings work quite differently. When I used the Smarty service, I couldn’t discern any difference regardless of which APN settings I tried. The IP address I received was private rather than public, which is common for many mobile providers. However the routing felt quite unreliable and the latency was worse than what I saw on Three’s network. The most frustrating part was that the IP address would actually change every 30-90 seconds to the next one up, disrupting any ongoing connections until they timed out.

When I contacted Smarty support about these issues, they informed me that fixed IP addresses are not guaranteed and that they recycle unused IPs. But they didn’t seem willing to investigate whether I was seeing a network fault or if this behavior was normal. I ended up canceling the service on the spot, and although they promised a refund, it took 6 weeks to actually receive it.

In contrast, when I switched back to my Three SIM but left the Smarty APN settings, I experienced the same awful connectivity until I changed the APN back to one of Three’s standard options. After that, things returned to working smoothly like before. So in my experience, it seems Smarty ignores any custom APN settings and routes traffic through their own network.
