MTN (Ghana) Internet Settings

When you use an unlocked phone on a carrier overseas the phone and texting will work right off the bat, but internet and picture messaging won't. To get them to work (or to get them to work well), you need to input the appropriate APN settings into the device so it knows how to access the internet.

  9. When you've entered everything, tap the three dots in the bottom right corner and select Save.
