Airtel Internet settings & Manual Configuration for Lumia, iPhone, Nokia Symbian, iPad, BBM

Internet Settings

To have access to the internet on your mobile phones and tablets or other data enabled devices, you will have to ensure your APN settings are configured correctly on the Airtel 3.75G network.
APN simply means Access Point Name.
This is a requirement on the network for all data users.
It is your gateway to accessing the web on the Airtel Network. Airtel's APN is internet.ng.airtel.com.
If your phone/ device has no APN settings or incorrect APN settings, you would be unable to access the web.
Typically, once you insert the Airtel SIM, the settings are automatically configured.
However, a need to configure manually might occur. This varies from device to device.
