Motorola Droid Razr Maxx - System Version 98.72.165.XT912.Verizon.en.US - Running Android 4.1.2. What are the VPN settings? Also when I try to edit my VPN settings, I am prompted for a password and username. I tried my Self Serve info and it wasn't that.

I think you want the APN (Access Point Name) settings. VPN is Virtual Private Network.

Name: KOODO
APN: sp.koodo.com
Proxy: leave blank
Port: leave blank
Username: leave blank
Password: leave blank
Server: leave blank
MMSC: http ://aliasredirect.net/proxy/koodo/mmsc
MMS Proxy server: 74.49.0.18
MMS Port: 80
MCC: 302
MNC: 220
Authentication type: None
APN type: Internet + MMS

This did not work for me. The bottom option "APN type" seems like something you should see in a dropdown menu, but I get a box to type it in, which I did. I am also getting an error: "ME returned a temporary error"

Set it up this way but don't type anything in the apn type box. The default settings should configure it at what it needs to be. I was a bit distracted when I pasted the apn settings or I would have changed it to leave blank as well. Can't edit it now that there's a comment.

Success. Is there a way to remove that half created VPN I set up thinking it was the same thing as APN?

Not familiar with that phone specifically. Can you long tap on the vpn you created and delete it? What happens if you hit the menu button from the VPN's page? I can't set one up on my phone without password protecting it and I don't want to mess with creating a password just to play with the VPN settings.

Paul helped me. Long pressing worked. Thanks to both of you, everything is working as intended now in regards to my APN and VPN settings.

I set up a VPN thinking it was the same thing. Its status is "unsuccessful." I am unable to find a way to delete it. Could this create a problem in any way? Anyone with the same phone as me know how to delete it?

Try pressing the menu button and see if there's an option to delete the VPN you created. If not try long pressing the VPN.

Long pressing VPN was the answer. I didn't even know that long pressing was a thing on Android. Thanks.

Actually I am using bVPN and I can highly recommend it for you to get all what you need security, privacy, encryption, unlimited bandwidth and high speed. Check it yourself http://www.vpnfaqs.com/2015/12/android-vpn-set-up/ it has simple interface and easy to use.
