APN Settings of Airtel Nigeria for Android, iPad, iPhone, Nokia and PC

Without Airtel APN settings well configured on your device, be it 3G modem, iPhone, iPad or Android device, you will not be able to connect to the internet using the Airtel Nigeria network even if you've subscribed to Airtel data plan. Even lately, some guys are using the zain APN (similar to Airtel APN) to browse with BB subscription on their Android. 

The Airtel mobile internet settings can be pushed to your mobile phone automatically after which you can get connected to the internet with Airtel 3.75G  network if you save it as your default settings.

Code To Get Airtel Configuration Settings Via SMS

If you are wondering how you can request for Airtel automatic internet configuration settings on your phone, you can try sending “internet phonebrand model' to 232 eg "internet Nokia 210" to receive your settings via SMS. Typically, once you insert the Airtel SIM, the settings are automatically configured.

However, a need to configure manually might occur if your device can't receive Airtel automatic settings. This varies from device to device but the parameters remain the same irrespective of your device.
