If you prefer to connect your Android phone or tab to the internet using mobile networks instead of wi-Fi networks,there is need for you to activate mobile data service on your Android device.
Unfortunately,most of the Android tablets and phones are unable to accept Over-The-Air (OTA) 3G/GPRS settings and need to be setup manually.
Today,I am sharing with you guys,how you can manually setup Etisalat,Glo,Airtel and MTN internet settings on your Android phone or tab like Samsung,HTC,LG or Tecno Android phone. You must know the APN i.e Access Point Name of Etisalat,Glo,MTN and Airtel for you to
be able to configure your Android for internet.

How Do I configureInternet Settings On my Android Phone or tab?
Tap Menu or Apps ==> Tap Settings ==> Tap Wireless and Networks or More Settings If you tapped Wireless and Networks,tap Mobile Networks If you tapped More Settings,tap Mobile Networks => Mobile Data ==> Tap Access Point name ==> Press Menu (looks like four horizontal lines,a square within a square or the word Menu) ==> Then select a New APN==> This is where you will enter the specific internet settings of the mobile network you want to configure on
your Android device.
Now,let me assume you want to configure Glo Mobile GPRS settings on your Android. Just key in the details below:
  • Name: Glo Nigeria
  • APN: gloflat or glosecure

  • Username: flat
  • Password: flat

Then Press “Menu” and select “Save” ==> Press on the grey box or circle to the right of “Glo Nigeria “ and it will fill in with a smaller green dot or tick mark.
That’s all.
