Full Nigerian Internet Configuration Codes/Settings For Smartphones
Here are the full list of internet configuration codes for automatic configuration and settings for manual configurations, each platform is taken care of, that is each of Android, Java, Symbian and Apple (iOS) has its own personalized settings and codes so that you don't have to worry about looking for each one.
There are about 4 major network carriers in Nigeria that provides internet services to its customers. Those networks provides many services from non-internet services like; Voice calls, SMS, Multimedia to internet services like; Web (Access points, GPRS, 3G, 4G etc), Data bundles for browsing, Live streaming and downloads. Although there a host of other network providers in the country but this four networks which are MTN, Glo (Globacom), Airtel, Etisalat are the biggest and also they are used by majority and as such they are those we will at.

Important things you need to know


If you want to set up internet on smartphones like the Android enabled devices like HTC or Apple device like iPad and iPhone it's important you have an active data plan, in fact it's a must. Why do you need an active data plan? Because this smartphones are like half-produced computers, they load webpages with everything in it fast, like on PC, if you were to leave let's say 750 Naira worth of airtime and after configuration you open your web browser, the whole airtime(credit) will be wiped out. Put simply on some device without internet bundles (data) you can't browse, even if you do then be prepare to load airtime each minute.

What are Internet Bundles and Data?


You may or might not have known what bundles or data are all about, it's even possible for you not to know the difference, although there is not much difference. MTN, Glo, Etisalat and Airtel have what they call internet bundle plans (or data bundle plans) for a wide range of smartphones, this bundles are a collection of internet data, specifying the exact amount of data and duration, basically it gives details. Think of as the networks telling you via this bundles how to use and when to use your data.

Internet Data on the other hand is the "thing" that makes it possible for browsing, it's just what you'll get if you subscribe to a data bundle or plan. Data comes in two major formats Megabytes MB, and Gigabytes GB, mathematically the MB is lower than the GB. Nigerian network carriers measures the amount spent in loading webpages in kilobytes which is much lower than MB and GB, for those who uses airtime to browse on average it's 5 Naira per kilobyte, that's a lot of money when how much kilobytes are used to load a single webpage is factored in, in some websites it take 200-500KB to load them multiply them with how many times you refresh the page and visit other sites/blogs. That's why important you have to have an active data plan. For the various internet bundle subscription available and the codes for activation see Airtel cheep codes and a list of simple network subscription codes. The above links are cheap subscription codes which are best used on Java and Blackberry phones. I'll soon come up with the full internet subscription codes for smartphones that runs on Android and iOS platforms. In the meantime configure your smartphones first.
