APN of Airtel for Android Samsung, Micromax, Sony

APN of Airtel for Android Samsung, Micromax, Sony. APN Stand for Access point name. If your internet is not working, One of the possible cause may be, because, APN  setting of Airtel is not set in your mobile phone. Airtel Service providers Customer care are unable to deliver settings sometimes in some mobiles, so you need to set the apn settings manually. I had faced the same problem in Samsung galaxy S, which made me to write about this information here. If your droid phone does not get the APN setting from other service provider like : Videocon, Vodafone, Airtel, Aircel, Idea, Tata docomo, Bsnl, Reliance, MTNL etc, then you can refer here for solution. Here is the way to set apn settting in your mobile. We can set APN in every mobile but, i will demonstrate to set apn in android mobile step by step, in this post.

    hello, i am using sony Xperia m with airtel network, the problem is that i can’t connect to 3g network.

    i tried in the following way

    put the preffered network mode as WCDMA ONLY and switched off and reboot then made wcdma/gsm and manually searched for airtel 3g but didn’t get there network, when i called airtel cc they said connect with idea 3g, if you don’t have airtel 3g.

    and the Internet setting APN is same as you mentioned above! is that anything else to be considered?

    My Mobile set is Samsung gt-s7582 .I have been using Airtel service and also i have been using 3g for past 6 months.But suddenly for the past 1 week , i am getting only 2g services.Contacted the Airtel customaer care center, but there was no proper response.Is there any setting by which we can check in the mobile set whether 3 G is working ?

  40. Prabhakara

    This helped me a lot. I have an unlocked BLU 6.0 HD phone, which is their ltest phone. In Bangalore, I was not getting 3G data. Several AirTel personnel played with it and told me that the phone set supports only 2G. I couldn’t believe that the latest model of an American made Android phone will support only 2G! Finally, I followed the directions stated above, but with APN Type: default, and it worked with 3G!

    Thank you a lot for this help.
