    I'm not too familiar with at&t phones, but from what I'm told they are pretty locked down in stock. You may need to flash a custom rom to have access to saving a different apn.

    Thank you
    AT&T and T-Mobile USA use different 3G bands. You can not get 3G data speeds with cross-branded phones, but 2G (EDGE) data should work, since that data is carried within the GSM bands. There is no software mod that can enable a phone to use a different band; it appears to be a hardware difference, perhaps different 3G antenna configuration.

    But the apn still has to be changed; idk how it is being disallowed. Find and install a custom rom for your phone is the best bet, as dlamber7 suggests.
