MTN, Glo, Airtel & Etisalat Access Point Name (APN) Settings - 2017


Some subscribe to data plans of any network provider but later in the day, they found it not browsing. One of them is Bad configuration of Apn Settings. APN means > Access Point Name which is a settings we all should COnfigure when we want to browse on our android phone. Apn also is available on java phones but not like the android own. Before an android users starts browsing on his or her  android phone, he or she needs to configure hisbor her Apn Settings.

There are two ways of configuring Apn settings for android phone which are :

  • Automatic Apn Settings 
  • Manual Apn Settings 


1. Automatic Apn Settings : 

Automatic settings is one in which a message will be sent to you to install an apn settings on your phone. To do this, switch your android phone using any sim especially MTN, then remove your battery, put it back and switch on your phone again. Immediately, an Apn message will arrive now you install them automatically amd you start browsing immediately. 

2. Manual Apn Settings : 

Manual settings involves you configuring your Apn manually, that is by self. For manual settings i will dropping all apn settings for all networks (MTN, Glo, Airtel, Etisalat). Just navigate to Settings >> Mobile Networks >> Access Point Name >> Click The Sim you want set apn for.
