Airtel customers like myself haven’t been having the best time lately. One downside is that when you get a new Smartphone with Airtel the setting that are sent to your phone are Zain settings. For those that are wondering what I am talking about Zain was name of the Airtel network before the Indian company came to the continent.

You need to manually change your Internet setting on your phone or you head to your nearest dealer to get them set up. To set it up your setting here is the procedure;

Go to the setting tab in applications.

Click more networks.

Click on Mobile Network.

Click Access Point Names.

Here you will see the word Zain.

Click on Zain and you will get the option to change the settings thus;

Name: Airtel

APN: internet

Proxy: Not set

Port: 8080

When you have done this go back and you should be able to start surfing. If you have any problems please talk to your friends at Airtel.
