I'm using iOS 5.0.1 on an iPad 1 and want to look at the APN settings. This article from Apple says that I should be able to see them through Settings > Cellular Data > APN Settings. But when I go to Settings > Cellular Data, the only options are to turn data and roaming on and off, to view the account (which opens AT&T's account info) and an option to set a PIN on the SIM.

What is the APN information for an AT&T 3G ipad and/or how can I see it on my device?

I can see my APN settings in:

Settings -> Mobile Data -> APN Settings

Perhaps your carrier locks this down?

What carrier do you have? – Leopd Jul 2 '12 at 16:29
I am on an MVNO attached to O2, a UK carrier. – Will Jul 2 '12 at 19:33

If your carrier provides these settings on the SIM, then you won't be able to see or edit them as it's auto configured.

If your carrier supports editing APN settings you can set settings using the instructions found in this site:

Choose your network there and get the settings.
