How To Get Airtel Nigeria’s WAP-MMS-Internet Settings Delivered Straight To Your Mobile Phone

airtellogoIn recent times, it has become kind of the norm to automatically have your network providers’ wap, gprs, mms and internet settings configuration delivered straight to your phone when you insert their SIM into your new phone.

This is known as OTA (Over-The-Air) configuration and as far as I know Airtel Nigeria, MTN Nigeria and Etisalat Nigeria still offer this automated service. Unfortunately sometimes, it fails to deliver and that is why Airtel Nigeria launched a platform where you can send the proper internet configuration settings to your phones in a snap.

If you’re dire need of Airtel Nigeria’s phone internet settings, here’s how to get them in 1 minute Winking smile.

Go to Airtel’s DMC page and enter your phone number and click OK as shown below.

NOTE: If you don’t have an Airtel Data Plan you’d be charged @ 15k per KB of data transferred. Also if you still can’t connect to the internet after saving and activating these settings, I suggest you text internet to 232 to activate full internet service.

    Hello Friend! Your internet setup steps is so easy, the best so far, but unfortunately, I was unable to push the GPRS/MMS settings to my Nokia 5130c-2(XpressMusic), after many attempts. I was made to understand that the setting for my mobile is not available. If there’s any other thing I should do or any other way you can assist me, please let me know, because, I can’t wait to browse with my cool Airtel sim(08087537565). NICE JOB, Thanks. >07061836529.

      @Lawrence: if you don’t know where to enter the airtel internet settings on your HTC Exca100 phone I suggest you visit the nearest Airtel office around you for assistance

  15. Evang. Gideon Ikpe says:

    I mean the airtel subscription codes

  16. adeniyi oyedemi says:

    It is very disappointing that i can only access the internet through the opera mini which is very limited. I can not access the internet directly on my NokiaE5 phone using the airtel network. Please tell me what i am not doing right. In all cases the error message reads- not available or has been removed.

    • Chukwudi Emmanuel Udegbunam says:

      @Adeniyi: check to see if your nokia e5 default browser uses a separate internet settings then configure it to use airtel’s Apn
