To use MTN data services on your mobile phone or USB modem, you need to have it configured even though in most cases your OEM does this for you. But in case they don’t, here’s how to configure your device to browse with an MTN line.

Automatic Configuration
MTN’s automatic configuration is very easy to do. However, as it turns out to be (and even with other networks), it works only on mobile phones and as the drill goes, not all handsets are supported.

To get automatic settings on your phone/device, text Settings to 3888.

After a few seconds, you will receive the configurations on your phone. Just save, activate and browse!

Manual Configuration
If your mobile phone is not supported for the auto settings or you are on a PC using a modem, you have to configure your device manually and here’s how.
