Make the app install the GSM APN settings automagically.

Entering the APN settings manually after resetting the phone or installing an android update is annoying.
If I could install the app via wifi and have it do the configuration for me, that would be awesome.

  • The apps has no way of knowing if you are a Ting CDMA or a Ting GSM customer. I doubt this is feasible, at least in the immediate future.

  • @Bruce Osborne Detecting a network type should be a fairly easy thing to make an android app do.

  • The app would need to ask for extra permissions.
    Android apps already have a bad reputation for asking to more access than they need.

  • Actually, Android phones (mine at least) have no problem setting APN using SIM card defaults. It is a defect really that Ting requires manual setup. They should fix it, it has nothing to do with the app.
