up till now some people are still finding it difficult to manually configure their mtn simcard for gprs internet browsing
. gone are those days where you have to call mtn customer care to send you their gprs internet settings
before you can use your mobile phone to browse the internet.the era of calling mtn customer care for internet settings
has been reduced since one can easily manually configure their mtn line to browse the internet.unlike before when you need to send text for them to automatically send the internet configuration settings to your mobile phone.today i am going to share with you on how to manually configure your phone to browse the internet
you can do it yourself without going to mtn office to connect your phone to the internet for you,although some of the latest Nokia phones do not support manual configuration of internet browsing,therefore the configuration would be sent to your mobile phone automatically when you insert your mtn simcard or you can simply create a prov file for it, you can read my post on how to create prov file for any nigeria network operator.
its very simple and we shall illustrate this by using Nokia phone for example,nokia2700.
how to manually configure your mobile phone for gprs internet browsing
go to your phone settings,scroll down to configuration, then enter to personal config setting and press the left soft upper key and choose add new
you will see list of configuration items, just choose "web".
fill in the details like this
= any name you like,so we can just call it "MTN MANUAL CONFIG".
= you can leave it empty or simply put any website of your choice, in this case i will use "mtnonline.com".
= web and PASSWORD
USE PREF. ACCESS PT.(i.e ACCESS POINT)
= set to NO.
scroll to the next one which is ACCESS POINT SETTING
, just click it to open another list of items you need to configure.
the first one there is PROXY
, just click it and choose "enabled",scroll to the next which is
and choose packet data.
,just click on it to view the list of items you will need to configure.the first one is PACKET DATA ACCOUNT
= web and PASSWORD
you are done here.
now you have to go back to your personal config. settings again and press the upper soft key,this time choose "ACCESS POINT
the first thing to fill is
= just fill any name, in this case "MTN ACCESS".
scroll to ACCESS POINT SETTINGS,
click it to view list of items to configure.
use step 3 above to configure it and that is all.
now you must activate it before it will work.to do so, just go back to your personal config. settings again, highlight the settings name, then press the upper left soft key.this time choose ACTIVATE
do the same for the other one to activate it.after then go back to configuration, then scroll up to the first option DEFAULT CONFIG SETTING
and choose PERSONAL CONFIG
, ok it as your default setting,then scroll down to the third item which is PREFERRED ACCESS PT.(i.e point)
and choose the one you created.
you have successfully and manually configured your mobile phone for gprs internet browsing. you can now browse with your Nokia mobile phone with any application that requires internet to work.that's all.ENJOY.
