The reason why your Internet isn't working might be because your APN settings haven't been set up yet. This means you need to go to change/introduce several things on your phone's settings to get access to the Internet.

Here there is a link with all the settings and how to set them up, depending on your phone brand.


I hope this helped you!

Have a good day :smileyhappy:
