Re: 3G settings

Hi Robert  ,

If  it's an android phone , if you have access to WiFi go on to the Play Store ( android market ) download the ..... giffgaffAPN ,then run it ,

 

on the first screen you see it has numbers 1 to 4 , touch number 2 .( It says " add or change data settings " ).

 

On the next screen it has numbers 1 to 3 touch number 1 ....( It says " enable Internet and MMS ) " .

 

That will do everything for you .

 

** Important , For Android 4 : automatic APN setup is not possible in ICS and higher. The app can supply manual assistance where automatic setup is unavailable. **

 

Hope that helps .

Re: 3G settings

on most phones just send text saying "settings" (without the quotes) to 2020 you're not specifically getting settings for 3g but for internet in general, if you're getting internet using GPRS then you could be using an older phone or in a bad signal area
