I want GPRS/MMS/3G on my account, how can I get it?

All customers are by default provisioned for data services (GPRS/MMS/3G) and the device configuration is automatic. When you switch on your phone for the first time, both MMS and GPRS settings will be automatically sent to your device. Once you have received the settings you will have to enter a PIN, which is either 0 or 1234 to save.

In case you did not save the settings or deleted the settings or entered a wrong PIN, you can still request for new settings

  • For Internet Settings send GPRS to 1251
  • For MMS Settings send MMS to 1251

NOTE: 3G devices (USB), Apple iPhone (IOS), BlackBerry® and Android devices are not supported with Over the Air Settings and require manual configuration.
