In this tutorial, I am going to explain to you, how you can manually configure your Nokia c3, so that you can browse the internet using Globacom Internet Subscriptions e.g. Always Micro; which costs N1, 000 for 150MB as at the time of publishing this post.
Unlike MTN, Etisalat and Airtel, Globacom Nigeria has different access point names (APN) for different internet services. If you want to use Globacom Internet Bundles with your phone ( irrespective of the model or maker) , you must make sure you configure your phone to use :
If you can configure your phone to use those three parameters as the default web/internet settings, then you will be able to browse the internet with your phone using Globacom bundles.
Access Point Configuration
From your Nokia c3 Menu, Go to Settings ; Configuration. Scroll down till you see “Personal Settings”. Select it. Then click on “Options”, select “Add New”. Choose “Access Point”. You will see : “Account name” and “Access Point Settings”. Enter "GloAPN” or any name as the “Account name”. Thereafter, Select “Access Point settings”, then “Bearer settings”. You will then see a list of settings you can change. Just edit them as listed below:
Packet data access pt = gloflat
Network type = IPv4
Authentication type = Normal
Username = flat
Password = flat
Once you are done, just select “Back” 3 times. You should see the new APN you created in a list under “Personal accounts” with a G-like icon.
Activating the Access Point
From your Nokia c3 Menu, Go to Settings ; Connectivity ; Packet Data. You will see: “Packet Data Connection” and “Packet Data Settings”. Set “Packet Data Connection to “Always Online” . Then select “Packet Data Settings”. You will see: “Active Access Point” and “Edit Active Access Point”. Select “Active Access Point” and you should see a list of Access Points. Just choose the one you created above ( which I named GloAPN as explained above) and select “Activate”.
Web Settings Configuration
From your Nokia c3 Menu, Go to Settings ; Configuration. Scroll down till you see “Personal Settings”. Select it. Then click on “Options”, click “Add New”. Choose “Web”. You will then see a list of settings you can change. Just edit them as listed below:
Account Name = Glo ( This can be any name)
Homepage = http://www.ogbongeblog.com ( This can be any web/wap url)
Username = flat
Password = flat
Use preferred access pt = Yes
Once you are done, just select “Back”. You should see the new Web Setting you created in a list under “Personal accounts” with a ball-like icon. Thereafter, highlight the Web setting, select “Options” and select “Activate”.
From your Nokia c3 Menu, Go to Settings ; Configuration. You will see: “Default config. settings” , “Default in all apps” , “Preferred Access Point” and “Personal Settings”. Just edit them as listed below:
Default config. settings = choose “Personal config”
Default in all apps = Yes
Preferred Access Point = choose the Access Point created earlier ( GloAPN)
Personal settings = Just leave it the way it is
Configuring Your Phone’s Web Browser
From your Nokia c3 Menu, Go to “Internet”. Scroll down till you see “Web Settings”. Select it. Then scroll down to “Configuration Settings”. Select it. You will then see: “Configuration” and “Account”. Select “Configuration” and choose “Personal config” from the list. This simply ensures that your phone’s browser uses the “personal configuration” you created manually.
If you insert a Globacom SIM with active Internet bundle subscription into the phone, you should be able to access the internet.
