For many, it is a headache trying to get that new Android phone to connect to the internet. I used to have the same issues too. Follow these few “do-it-yourself” steps and you may not have to send your phone to an “expert”.

Set up mobile internet on Android

Step One
Navigate to the settings menu of your Android smartphone. This can be done via an icon in the apps menu on any Android device and sometime via the notifications bar.

Step Two
In the settings menu, you need to find the wireless and network settings. On most devices, click the ‘More’ button but this might not be same for your specific device.

Step Three
Once you have found the wireless and network settings, click on the Mobile Networks button

Step Four
Make sure the mobile data option is ticked. This might solve your problem but if not, click on Access Point Names (APN).

Step Five
You might already have a list of different APNs to choose from so you might be able to fix the problem by simply selecting the right one. If this doesn’t work then click the menu button in the corner and select New APN.

Step Six
Here you need to fill out all the details for your mtn network
Name – mtn
APN – internet
Proxy – leave it blank
Port – Leave it blank
Leave the rest blank except
MNC – 620
Authorization – None or PAP
Enter the details and click Save in the menu.

Your new APN will now show up in the list for you to select. Give it a few moments to connect and you should have your internet connection. If you still don’t have a connection, check your APN details have been correctly entered.
