How to Configure MTN APN Settings (Step By step)

MTN is one of Nigeria’s leading mobile network service providers, with more than thirty million members. Getting an automated internet connection on their mobile phones is often tough for their clients. Today, we’ll show you how to set up MTN APN settings on your phone. I recall the days when we had to manually configure APN settings on our java phones.

Some Android phones now require specific setups before being able to connect to the internet. If you’re having trouble with that, you’ve come to the perfect place. This post contains practical solutions for you. Simply follow the instructions below and you’ll be browsing on your MTN line in minutes.

How to Set Up MTN APN Settings on Android and iPhone

The first thing you should do is send a text message to see if automatic settings can be sent immediately to your phone. Text “settings” to 3888 to do so. You will receive automatic configurations once you send the message, which you may install on your phone. Your phone will be up and running in less than 5 minutes once you complete the process. As long as you have an active data plan, you will be able to surf the web on the MTN network. If this does not work, you will need to apply for manual configurations. Follow the steps below to set up MTN APN settings on your phone.

Manual MTN Configurations

Here’s what you should do if your phone is ancient or doesn’t allow you to install setups automatically.

  • Go to settings
  • Find mobile network
  • Open it, and select access point name
  • You can decide to create new or edit anything you find there.
  • In this case, create new APN and name it “MTN WAP”

After that here is what you will input in the blank spaces.

  • Name: MTN WAP
  • IP Address:
  • Port: 9201
  • Username: Web
  • Password: Web
  • APN (access point name):
  • Homepage:

You can also try this on your smartphone whether IOS or Android it is going to work.

  • Name: MTN WEB
  • Port:
  • Username:
  • Password:
  • APN (Access point name):
  • Homepage:

Note: the blank spaces are supposed to be left empty


You should be able to set up your Android or iOS device for online browsing using the methods above. Make sure you enter all of the information correctly; even a minor error will prevent you from browsing on your phone. There is no website that you will not be able to visit on your phone if you do it correctly. If the problem persists, please contact MTN customer service by calling “180.” They will provide you with further assistance and instructions for configuring your gadget and browsing the internet.
