MTN APN Configuration That Works – Mobile and Modem

Published

on

MTN APN is what is required to enable internet connection on your phone. APN is an acronym for Access Point Name. Access Point Name is typically the name of the gateway connecting your internet enabled device to the web through an internet service provider, such as MTN.

Most often we run into the problem of missing APN configuration and can’t surf the web with our phone or modem. If you have your APN configured before now and you still cannot browse, make the listed below are in order.

  • Data subscription balance
  • Data monitor app threshold
  • Other phones of same network can browse. Your inability to browse could be a general problem from the service provider at the moment.
  • Network signal reception

In Nigeria you can fall into the hands of the wrong people, who will charge you high amount of money in the name of configuring your phone for browsing.

To get the configuration pushed automatically to your phone by MTN.

Send as a text message “Settings” to 3888. Without quotes.

If the above method fails to get you APN configuration, you can fall back to configuring it yourself which always works.

For Mobile phones, navigate to “mobile network” in settings through more connections option, and you should see APN configuration option there.

Note: If your device works just fine, you are advised not to go further. But if for a reason you deleted the pre-installed APN configuration and you want to get it back. You’re welcome. The configurations work for 2G, 3G and 4G network type.

Access Point Name is unique to every service provider and can come pre-configured in SIM cards. When you slot in a new SIM card into a phone, it goes through it’s initiation to the service provider’s system. The service provider can then push necessary configurations to the device. Devices with MTN SIM card making an internet connection must be configured with an APN to present to MTN.

MTN will then examine this APN to determine what type of connection should be created, for example: which IP addresses should be assigned to the wireless device, which security methods should be used, etc. All of which is done in a second by a programmed system.
