APN Of Etisalat, Glo, MTN , Zain

If you do configure your phone or modem with internet settings of different networks, then the word "APN" should not be new to you. You will always need the Access Point Name of the network you want to use to surf the internet whenever you want to configure your phone, modem or even if you want to create prov files.

If for example, you want to use your phone to surf the internet using MTN data-ready SIM card and you fail to configure your phone with the APN of MTN, the phone might not connect to the internet at all.

The APN of the major internet providers in Nigeria are stated below:

APN of Etisalat : etisalat [Username = blank, Password = blank)
APN of MTN      : web.gprs.mtnngeria.net [Username = web, Password = web)
APN of Zain     : internet.ng.zain.com
APN of Airtel     : internet.ng.airtel.com [Username = internet, Password = internet)
APN of Globacom : gloflat (for data plans)  [Username = flat, Password = flat)
APN of Globacom : glowap or glosecure  (this deducts your airtime)

I hope this short info helps....

    Hi Bro, I have MTN F@stlink and i have unlocked it to use with other SIM apart from MTN, but, I created a new profile and entered the APN for Zain, but, when it reaches authenticating it bounce back with an error. I think something is wrong with the username and password. Could you please help out....

  5. Check the tor settings tab for the proxy address

    This article is not for unlocking, so dont post your imei number here....

    if you do not put in the correct APN for the zain profile, it will never connect, so cross check your settings very well

  9. @Nicoter..kindly check for the post where am unlocking modems.
    @Anonymous... It means your phone is not configured well to use the APN of the network you are trying to use....
    @Anonymous... You will first have to unlock the fastlink , then configure it with Glo APN settings

  11. It is has been observed that some MTn modems doesnt support Glo SIM. One of the reasons I prefer Glo Modems now because you can use all SIMs with it..

    hello jide. i was able to unlock my mtn fastlink MF190 modem, and i am trying to use my glo sim on it. however, at the configuration stage, it asked for 'dial number' (directly under the config name in the config file tab). the one for mtn is *99#. pls what should i use for glo and etisalat?
