How To Manually Configure Your Android Phone and Tablet For Glo APNs – {Internet Access Point Name settings}


Some Android phones and Tablets do not permit the “PUSH SETTINGS” from networks carrier, therefore, making browsing dificult for the Users. However, without taking you far, I have derived a workable and easy to know configuration setting for Glo sim users. This is what I am using now, and it works for me.

Firstly, I donnot want to take you to a long process of doing this, I will summarise it here to make things easy for you. Follow the process below:
  • NAME:   GLO NG
  • APN:      glodroid
  • APN type:   select all
  • Username:    android
  • Password:    android
  • Authentication type:    PAP or CHAP

Secondly, now this is how to go about it; Switch on and open your smart phone. Go to “SETTINGS”, under “WIRELESS AND NETWORKS” click “MORE”, then click on ‘Mobile Networks’, click “Access Point Names”. Chose Glo Mobile. Then, click on Menu icon at the Top right corner of your phone, or at the left bottom- depending on phone or Tablet brand. The icon is indicated in this symbol [≡].

When the menu open, chose “NEW APN”. Configuration setting form will open, click on ‘Name’ and type in GLO NG , then, click ‘APN’ and input ‘glodroid’. Click ‘APN types’ and select all types you see by ticking them all. Click ‘Username’ and input “android”. Click ‘Password’ nd input “android”. Click ‘Authentication type:’ and chose “PAP or CHAP”. Then, click menu again and select “SAVE”. Now you have finished the configuration process, it will appear on sscreen like this:  , chose it by clicking on it for the small indicator to alight.

Congratulattion! You are now ready to surf the web as you want.
