APN settings for Orange Switzerland Internet connection

Got my Samsung through Swisscom but wanted to use it with my Orange SIM. Everything went fine (i.e. device was not SIM-locked) but I couldn’t get an Edge/GPRS connection. This means that access to the Internet only worked through Wifi, which was not really useful to me. After a little browsing I realized that I needed to create a new APN however all the settings that I found on the Internet were very old and were apparently for iPhones. After some trial and error this is what worked for me (Wifi must be turned off) :

Settings / Wireless and Network / Mobile network / Access Point Names / New APN
