APN Setup Guide for Android & iPhone

APN Setup Guide for Android & iPhone

Japanese smartphones are the top and wise choice of many people. Still, some users may encounter the following problem: the smartphone cannot access the Internet instantly after inserting the SIM card. Don't worry; simply setting up the APN (Access Point Name) by your mobile network operator setting can resolve this problem!

What is APN?

Access Point Name (APN) stands for Access Point Name. It is the gateway between the mobile network and the Internet. Whenever a smartphone or mobile device uses mobile data, the mobile network operator (MNO) reads the APN to assign an IP address to the device and determines the access method that how the device will access the network. In other words, the SIM card is a pass, and the APN is the gateway. The pass must be paired with the correct gateway to be effective and connected to the network.

Why does Ola Tech's smartphone need to set the APN?

Every smartphone imported from other countries should set up the APN manually, not just Ola Tech's smartphones. The APN is built-in already from the smartphones sold locally by the local mobile network operators
