I just moved my sim card to a different iPhone and have the common "no data" problem.
I've read many pages on the subject but not sure which solution to try.
I'd rather not get into the "geeky" solutions (DFU,using iBackupBot and going in there to remove the APN, etc.)

It seems the likely culprit is that I have an older sim card and that getting Tracfone to switch me to a newer sim card will solve the problem.
Can anyone here confirm that this is the solution?
Will I loose the TMFL?

I also wonder if creating a new device (with my new iPhone's ID) in my account and transferring my service to the new device would have any effect on the APN profile.

If you transfer to a new SIM, the SIM will dictate whether you get TMFL or not.

Unless you have old stock you are unlikely to get a TMFL SIM. And I doubt an old TMFL SIM would help with your issue.

I won't be too upset at going to a new SIM and loosing TMFL. I'm not a heavy user of minutes anyway.

Do you know if using a newer SIM will fix the iPhone APN issue?

Or if making this phone a "new device" and making it my "active device" will change the APN profile? This would probably be easy to try but I'd feel better about doing it if I knew there was a chance I'd get a different APN (might still not be correct, but different).

Don't know. I responded to the part I could reasonably answer. I don't use iOS.

My understanding is TF and Apple control the APN settings. They send what they think you need and there doesn't appear to be a way to have them send something other than what the choose.

I had the exact same problem with 2 iphone SEs that I have. My sim was several years old and transferring to a new sim solved the problem. I had already wasted a looooong time on the phone with tracfone where they tried to get the APN manually changed. (With no results !) Switched from a sim from a BYOP kit showing "coverage on two largest networks"-white package to "works with top three networks"-green package. Both are TMFL package but didn't really care about that. I don't think changing the device in your account will make any difference.
