How to Configure TECNO Phone for Internet Browsing

Normally, your TECNO phone is supposed to connect to the internet and start browsing once you insert your SIM card and enable data connection. But sometimes, things might not always go as expected, and if your phone or SIM card cannot configure the internet settings automatically, there’s a solution. Here, we’ll teach you how to configure the TECNO phone for internet browsing within a few minutes.

Why is the internet not working from my device?

If you think the internet is not working on your phone because it is not configured or has the wrong internet settings, you guessed right. Just like the aged Nokia 3G phones that use packet data and others to link your phone to the internet, your Android phone also uses APNs (Access Point Names) and other parameters to connect you to the internet.

If the internet configuration isn’t present on your TECNO phone, or the active one doesn’t work with your SIM card, you’ll have a problem connecting to the internet. Nonetheless, you can configure your phone for the internet easily to fix the issue.

So, if your phone didn’t receive the internet settings automatically, you can set it manually as we put you through below.

How to access internet settings

There’s always a section for wireless and internet settings on every Android device where you can change your internet settings. The same section allows you to configure and change your access point names and other configurations. And for this guide, you can either configure your internet settings automatically or manually.

Both require the correct APNs for your mobile network. However, you don’t need to worry about that if you’re configuring the APN automatically. We’ll talk more about that below.

Read on to know how to configure the TECNO phone for internet browsing.

How do I set up internet for my Android device automatically?

As said earlier, your TECNO phone is supposed to configure the internet settings automatically and allow you to browse. If that didn’t work, however, follow the steps below to troubleshoot and set up the internet settings automatically.

How to configure TECNO phone for internet browsing automatically:

  • Open your phone Settings
  • Tap the Mobile Networks & Internet (Of course, it may carry a unique name on your phone. Just find something similar around the first page of the Settings app.)
  • From there, select Mobile Networks.
  • Tap your default SIM card for browsing.
  • Scroll down and select “Access Point Names”
  • You’ll see a bunch of APNs there. Tap the 3-dot button in the right corner, then select “Reset to default”
  • By doing so, you’re triggering your phone to fetch the correct APN setting for the mobile network.

Wait for a few seconds to reload the internet settings, and hopefully, your phone will be connected to the internet now.

If that didn’t work, you can contact your network provider to send you a configuration message as a means of setting you your internet settings automatically. The network configuration message contains the good and latest APN for your TECNO mobile network.

  • You can call the Customer Care number of your service provider, requesting the internet configuration for your phone.
  • They’ll send it to you in a few moments, and you’ll receive a notification on your phone.
  • Tap the notification, then tap “Full Installation” to install the configuration.

How to manually configure TECNO internet settings to browser

If you couldn’t get the automatic internet configuration for your device, you can try creating a new APN manually. Of course, some phones don’t support the automatic installation of network configurations. So, you can do it manually, but it requires you to get the right APN parameters for your network provider. Otherwise, it’ll be a hard job in vain.

The APN configuration contains various important parameters, such as the actual access point name, username, password, server, etc. Nonetheless, you can get the value from your network provider or a quick Google search.

Once you’ve gotten the required parameters, follow the steps below to create a new APN for your internet settings.

How to configure TECNO phone for internet browsing manually:

  • Open your phone Settings
  • Tap the Mobile Networks & Internet (Of course, it may carry a different name on your phone. Just find something similar around the first page of the Settings app.)
  • From there, select Mobile Networks.
  • Tap your default SIM card for browsing.
  • Select APN or Access Point Names.
  • Tap the “+” button in the top right to create a new access point.
  • Now, enter the parameter you’ve gotten online or from your carrier in the required places. Only fill what you’re given and leave every other thing as they are.
  • Once you’re done, tap the 3-dot button in the top right and select
  • Finally, select the new APN on the list and turn on your mobile data to see if it works.

It should work if you did it right.

Wrap up

Right now, in 2021, I don’t think you need to configure the internet settings for any phone manually. But if your phone requires it, there you have it.
