How To Enable "Cellular Data Network" Tab In iOS 5.x With APN Editing [Cydia Tweak]


iOS 5 brought so many good feature with it when it was launched back in October but it also brought some really painful glitches and problems. People who relied on unlock got their iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS locked, fortunately there’s a solution for unlocking iPhone 3GS on baseband 5.16.05 but there’s still no unlock available for baseband 4.11.08.

There are plenty of other notable glitches in iOS 5.x, missing Cellular Data Network tab is one those issues in iOS 5. We dug a little deeper and found that people who are using iPhone on official or Apple’s partner carriers don’t face this issue but people who are using unlocked iPhones on carrier which are not Apple’s partner face this issue. Basically you don’t get the option to edit or add APN settings for using your carrier’s data be it EDGE, 3G or even MMS. If you like to use your network’s data and you don’t get the option to enter APN settings then it can get really frustrating.

On the other hand people who are using their iPhones on Apple’s official carriers can see Cellular Data Network APN editing tab and they can edit or add APNs setting in order to use network data. Another issue which a lot of iOS 5.x users face is Personal Hotspot feature, either it’s not present in Settings.app or its greyed out. Well first we’ll teach you how you can get your Cellular Data Network tab back which will allow you to enter your network’s APN settings.

Remember: Do not install this tweak if you already have Cellular Data Network tab in Settings>General>Network.

Step 1: Launch Cydia from your iPhone’s home-screen

Step 2: Tap the Search tab and enter “APN Editing”

Step 3: Install APN Editing tweak

Step 4: It won’t ask but you have to reboot your device for this tweak to show its magic

Step 5: Go to Setting>General>Network and you will see Cellular Data Network tab there

Important: This tweak is for jailbroken iPhones only if you haven’t jailbroken your iPhone yet you can follow our complete guides posted below to jailbreak your iPhone 4 untethered on iOS 5.0.1

Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 untethered on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS using redsn0w 0.9.10b3 or if you already have a tethered jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1 use Corona 5.0.1 Untether to jailbreak your iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS on iOS 5.0.1.

APN Editing tweak will definitely bring your Cellular Data Network tab back but it won’t allow you to tether your iPhone’s internet connection. For that you have to download other paid Cydia tweaks like MyWi or TetherMe. But APN Editing will bring internet back on your iPhone 4 running iOS 5.x
