How to Activate Internet Browsing on Your MTN Line
Do you have a new MTN SIM or a new phone and you just inserted your MTN SIM but you cannot access the internet? It might be because you have not properly activated your MTN SIM to browse on your device. Note that you can make use of the MTN network to access the internet on any internet-enabled mobile device. Also, you can make use of an internet router or internet modem to connect to the internet via MTN.
Usually, your smartphone should activate browsing once you insert your MTN SIM. You will first get a message from MTN that provides the recommended internet settings. Simply, save this message and your device will install the settings automatically. What if you don’t get the message?
Not to worry, you can get it manually from MTN by texting SETTINGS to 3888 on your device. After you do, MTN will reply with the required settings and you can save and install them. If you prefer to activate internet browsing manually, it is possible. Check the settings below:
Account name: MTN GPRS
Access point name (APN): web.gprs.mtnnigeria.net
IP Address: 10.199.212.2
Port: 8080 (for HTML) or 9201 (for WAP)
Note that you should always configure Port as “8080” except if your device only supports “WAP.” Usually, when you purchase your browsing device (smartphone, tablet, router, or modem) from any of the MTN service centres, they come preconfigured.
You can purchase a 3.5G FastLink MTN USB modem for about N5,000 from any of the MTN service centres. This device is compatible with GPRS/EDGE/3G as well. One of the benefits of purchasing this device is that you will enjoy an amount of free data from MTN for the first 6 months of use.
Another device that you can use to access the internet from MTN is the portable Wi-Fi router. This device comes in handy if you need to share the internet with more than one device at a time. You can share your internet with about five devices with the router as long as they are within a 10-meter range. MTN calls this device the MTN Mi-Fi and you can purchase one for N21,000. It comes with 3GB of free data upon your first subscription. You can activate browsing on this device by texting MIFI to 131.
