Offline APN Database is for international travelers who like saving money on cell voice and data service by using a local SIM card purchased at their destination. The app contains a locally stored database with over 1300 different APN codes for carriers all over the globe. The app will be updated whenever the list is modified.

However, if you would like an unlock code you can acquire one here:

If you find a SIM that does not have a valid APN in the database please email me so we can find the correct settings together. I would like the APN list to be as complete as possible, but I will need help from everyone. Please check against the database using this free version first. If you happen to know the country you are visiting we can try to improve that countries list before you leave. This helps everyone.

How does this app save money?
Most cell providers charge outrageous fees for international roaming. You can avoid international roaming fees by purchasing a local SIM. In many countries you can get one for less than $10.

In order to do this you need a phone that is not carrier locked (this is not the same as rooting). You can get your phone's unlock code and instructions on how to use it from your carrier. Most of the time you can get this over the phone from your service provider.

Using a local SIM will give you a local phone number. However, If the purchased SIM card includes data getting an internet connection requires the service providers APN settings. This can be difficult to get if you do not speak the local language.

You can learn more about APN settings and how they work here:

This app contains a huge database of known APN settings for SIM cards. Run the app and search for your SIM's APN settings. Then you can add these settings automatically, or in the case of Ice Cream Sandwich users copy and paste the individual settings into a new APN entry.

The current release of Android has disabled the ability to add APN settings with 3rd party software. You will need to use the copy buttons (see the screen shot) and paste the settings into a new APN entry manually. As of now the only way around this limitation requires root access (do this at your own risk) and placing the app in the /system directory.

This application will not give your phone signal where it normally will not get it.
This application it meant for phones with a GSM antenna. If your phone does not have a SIM slot this application will do nothing for you.

My email is provided for support with the application. If you have a GSM phone and have entered a SIM card that was not provided with the phone and the application does not have your APN setting please email me. If you have any other issue please contact your service provider.

Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

4 ★good start
5 ★nice
1 ★The app does not recognize straight talk. So I have to go to an external site to try to copy APN. I could not get it to copy. I would have to type in 80 characters, not counting spaces, to make if happen. If I have to type everything into my APN anyway why would I need this worthless app? Do not bother downloading if you r straight talk user.
2 ★Gave the wrong APN settings. Had no option to try a different 1, or search unless I pay. Maybe for $1.00, but $2.50 for an app that I wanted simply as a book of the things I can find free. I will just spend 20 minutes & put the ones I might need into a txt file
5 ★This is the most important travel tool ever. Verizon galaxy S5 in Indonesia. I didn't have to use any unlock codes or talk to Verizon. Just bought a SIM card for $1.50 and used this app and had a native speaker reply yes to a text message. Done. Took less than 5 minutes.
5 ★Does not have all the proper APN types for T-Mobile. Also the APN shortcut does not work on Lollipop. EDIT: It worked fine on Marshmallow to add AT&T settings.
2 ★The app could not find the correct carrier. It told me I need to select the carrier and then took me to the election party. My carrier was not in the selection part comma what I tried to browse and told me I need the pro version. Unfortunately it was not at all useful for me.
