    Okay so I am absolutely baffled at this point. I've searched google up and down for answers.

    I purchased my S4 "factory unlocked" from ebay. turned out being a SCH-I545 from verizon.

    I'm trying to use it on net10 (ATT network) have the SIM inserted and registered the SIM. Everything is good other than I can't get 3G or 4G.

    I'm aware of adding the correct APN setting for my phone. The problem is that there is a stupid Verizon default APN that is grayed out and i can't edit it. I can add another APN and save it and it shows up, but I can't make it default or even click it to select it.

    IDK WTF is wrong with it but I'm almost at the point of sending it back through ebay.

    can anyone help?

    BTW, it's rooted and on 4.4.2 stock.

    You can make the APN editable. Let me find the instructions for you.

    OK, I have a T-Mobile phone so I am hoping the system files are set up the same.
    First download ES File Manager, go in to the app hit the 3 lines in the left top corner. Click on tools and go to Root Explorer and turn it on. Grant it super user permissions. Another menu should pop up, click on Mount R/W, make sure to change them all to RW and click ok.
    Now go to the top and hit the /, that should take you to the root of the phone.

    Go to System Folder
    Go to csc
    Go to customer.xml and use ES Note Editor
    Scroll down until you see one that has a Profile name of Verizon US LTE or something like that. The real name should be in your APN settings.
    Towards the bottom of that you should see <Editable>no<Editable> , you want to change the no to a yes. Also don't forget to click the dots in the top right corner and click edit. ALSO make sure to make a back up of the customer.xml file just in case you do something wrong.
    Once you have changed the settings just back out and save the changes. Reboot the phone and then go back in to the APN settings in mobile networks and the APN should now be able to be edited and you can change all the info. Hopefully that will work for you.
