Create an Access Point Name

On the main screen, swipe down twice to expand the window and click on the gear on the lower right to get to the Settings screen.

In the Settings screen, click on Network & internet.

In the Network & internet screen, click on the Mobile network, Celona.

In the Network Settings screen, expand Advanced.

Scroll down to and select Access Point Names

In the APNs screen, click on the + icon to create a new APN.

For the new APN, set Name and APN to default.

Click on the 3 dots in the upper right to save

Verify that the new APN is in the APNs list.
