Lebara (Deutschland / Germany) APN Settings on iPhone

This post is not specifically related to anything important, but I decided to put it out here because it is easy to find in the future.

Lebara is a MVNO for Telekom’s services in Germany and offers some great calling rates for national and, especially, international calling. Example being 1 ct per minute to India, USA and most of the EU. In fact, to India and USA even mobile phones are included in that cost.

There are other MVNOs offering similar rates, but Lebara is, in my opinion, the best because it uses Telekom’s network, has flat-rate plans that include 500 free minutes to many countries and best of all a flat-rate Internet plan as well.

For their internet service, you need to change the APN settings on the phone to match the one shown below:

APN: internet.t-d1.de

Since the iPhone recognizes the sim card as being one form Telekom, it by default sets up their APN, which in this case does not work. The default Telekom profile also does not allow editing of the APN. But, you can get around that problem by using the iPhone Configuration Utility to create a custom profile with the APN inside it.

Of course, for lazy ones, you can even download it from here, directly to your iPhone.
