Just thought I'd ask here in case anyone has had similar issue. Have a new phone with android 8.1 texting works fine but the data doesn't. I've found that I can't correct the apn to the proper settings.
Am wondering if this could be due to my sim being over 8yrs old i think i have just kept cutting it down and it keeps working.
Will a newer speakout nano sim give correct APN settings? or is it just google being a bother not letting APN be added or changed?

Did you ever find a solution to this problem?
I'm having a similar issue. I have a fairly new sim card and when I put it in a BLU phone from Speakout the APN settings seem to input fine as rogers-core-appl1.apn. When I put them in the new UMIDIGI phone with 8.1 it says ltemobile.apn and I am unable to edit it or create a new APN. Everything is greyed out and I can't get data working.
I reached out to UMIDIGI and this is what they said:
Thanks for your reply.
The carrier you used is locked APN caused you can't edit APN.
This is a solution from other customer:
The workaround was to insert the temporary SIM with APN unlocked. Then it will allow to modify the APN. After saving the modified APN, restarted with the SIM to-be-used. I selected 'NO' to update the previousely stored APN upon reboot and it retained the modified APN, which now works with Lucky Mobile.
It looks there are only few carriers providing SIM with unlocked APN. One of them is Freedom Mobile and I'm lucky that I had the SIM from the previous account.
I have not tried that yet though, because it looks like I would have to set up a plan with them and I'd rather investigation other options first if possible. I also reached out to Speakout but I haven't heard anything back.
