New Mobile Broadband Connection - Select APN Billing Info

Asked by Jason Sharp on 2012-04-25

Distro: Ubuntu 12.04 Beta
All debs up to date

When using a 4GLTE device, I attempt to setup a mobile boardband connection. The very first time I'm able to choose my billing plan (APN), however, if I delete the connection, and attempt to re-add it, I no longer get the option to choose an APN

Using a Verizon Pantech UML290

Set up a Mobile Boardband Connection > UML 290
Choose your Providers Country or Region > United States
Choose your Provider > Verizon
Choose your Billing Plan > <select correct plan>
Confirm Mobile Boardband Settings

is how it is supposed to work; however, I can't select an APN for this device.

I CAN select an APN (when I have the USB device disconnected) for the internal wwan device (the one that doesn't actually have any plan associated with it, which is built into the IBM x301 i'm using)

Is there a reason why the Pantech UML290 isn't supported, or wont let me select an APN?

This will identify which line is the device in your first output....
