Nokia updates Access Point for Windows Phone with mysterious improvements
Nokia has published an update to the Windows Phone Store for Access Point, a system app for consumers who utilise more than a single SIM. Access Point essentially makes it easy to manage multiple mobile operator settings for MMS, Internet and more. So what's new in version 220.127.116.11?
We're not entirely sure as no change log is available and nothing is obvious when checking through the app. If you notice anything we've missed, be sure to shout at us in the comments. You can download Access Point on your Lumia Windows Phone. Remember to check out Lumia Pusher to stay on top of updates from the manufacturer. Thanks, Irfanullah, for the tip!

Also, this app shouldnt affect actuall connection speed, unless your phone has APN/MMS/Internet Sharing settings that are not default to the carrier and are specific to the phone, and you changed the settings to a default from Access Point.
Your right statement was a little broad. I should've said for the 920 since Tmo doesn't have High end W8 phones.
No idea what happened there!
This is what i did
turned off phone
removed sim for 30 secs put sim back on and turn on phone
make a dummy apn in access point
fill ALL the required lines like when you did manually in cellular settings
when everyhting is done save it and activate the dummy apn
then activate your original apn again (the one that worked for you before)
It seems it re writes the apns setting again doing that so yeah
OH and to
KALO88 I also ate thru my data spend over 2 gigs so it not only happen to you. however now that issue is also fixed
EVERYTHING WORKS AGAIN ON MY NOKIA 920! YEY
We then (sadly) tried this on my wife's 920 and hers is doing the exact same thing with it. I hope Nokia actually fixes the app issues instead of just telling people "format your phone, cause then you'll have bigger issues to deal with instead of asking us to fix our code".
Doing a factory reset did solve the issue; after reinstalling Access Point, I was able to get everything working on Wind again. Speedtest also works now. I have to wonder if the OS update is the culprit here.
