MTN APN Configuration That Works – Mobile and Modem
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.
MTN APN settings for smartphones (iOS and Android)
Note: For MTN 4G MiFi modems, the above configuration works for such devices.
MTN APN settings for modems (U.S.B stick modems)
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.
#ReallyFreeData, Airtel is dashing free data weekly on Recharge Plus
Airtel NG is currently giving out free 250mb data to its subscribers so long as you keep recharging your line. The good news is that you get 250Mb every week, once you meet your recharging target. All Airtel users are qualified for this promo and it gets even better because you can use the data to access any website and content.
You can do the recharging through your bank and still get the reward. In total you enjoy 1GB monthly for simply topping up your airtime. You can use the airtime for regular uses, such as making calls and sending text, even subscribing to a regular data plan.
Speaking of the requirements to enjoy this offer, Airtel NG says you have to recharge your line consistently. Consistently in order to meet your weekly target.
How it Works:
- To get started, you have to first recharge your Airtel line.
- Check your weekly target by dialing *479# or check your recharge notifications.
- Recharge to hit your target
- Get rewarded with 250MB free.
- Dial *123# or *140#. to check balance
Hard to say:
The free data bonus is valid till Sunday 23.59pm every week. You don’t get the reward twice a week, so no need beating the target twice. Airtel didn’t say how long the offer lasts, but it looks like one that its not going over yet. You can’t roll over any unused data. That is to say, once it expires, it’s gone, no renewals.
