Every Thing You Need To Know About MTN Data Settings

To start enjoying high speed internet, you need the right settings on your device. Please follow these simple steps to get ready for an unbeatable internet experience.

Your MTN-branded USB modem or data card has already been configured so you do not have to worry.

  • If you’re not using an MTN-branded device, you can request for MTN’s internet browsing settings (also referred to as APN settings or packet data settings on some phones) by typing the word SETTINGS as an SMS and send to 3888, free of charge.
  • The settings will be sent to you by SMS, please save the settings as soon as they are delivered to your phone to avoid deleting them in error.
  • If you currently enjoy Internet browsing using your data enabled handset on MTN’s data network, chances are that your handset is already configured to use MTN’s data network. You may however send SETTINGS to 3888 to be double sure!

For handsets or other devices that need to be configured manually (e.g. iphones, Windows-based handsets etc), you will need to configure the data settings on your handset with the settings information provided below:
