    Hi all. This is a problem that has me so frustrated! My phone is unlocked and my SIM card is with Virgin Australia who uses the Optus network so you need to use their APN settings for data and mms to work correctly.
    My problem is that the default APN settings are the original Virgin ones and they are now useless.
    Now I can add a new APN and save it BUT there is no option for me to use that new APN. ???
    I have tried to delete the offending setting but then have no option to select ANY of my settings *see photo*
    The only way around the problem at the moment is to go into the Virgin APN (default) and alter it and then save which works BUT as soon as I restart my phone, the APN goes back to "default" and not my altered version arghhhh!
    = I can't change APN because there is no option (dot to tick) and I can't completely change the default APN to last through a restart. Please can anyone help me??

    I had the exact same problem.

    I could add the new APN, but didn't have the option to select it. Until i decided to type "default" for APN type. See below.
    On the Virgin mobile site it says you could type "internet or default" so I first went with internet. Which didn't work. Tried "default" and voila.
    Hope it works for you.
