Data connection

Your phone will be automatically configured to use your mobile operator’s data connection when you turn on your phone (if the SIM card is inserted) for the first time.

Checking the data connection you are using

  1. From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Wireless & networks.
  2. Tap Mobile networks > Network operators or Access Point Names.

Turning the data connection on or off

Turning your data connection off can help optimize your battery life. It can also save money on data charges. However, when your data connection is turned off, you may not always receive automatic updates to your email, social network accounts, and other synchronized information.
  1. From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Wireless & networks.
  2. Select the Mobile network check box to turn on the data connection; clear the check box to turn off the data connection.

Creating a new access point

When you need to add another data connection on your phone, obtain the access point name and settings (including username and password if required) from your mobile operator.
  1. From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Wireless & networks.
  2. Tap Mobile networks > Access Point Names.
  3. On the APNs screen, press MENU and then tap New APN.
  4. On the Edit access point screen, enter the APN settings. Tap an APN setting item to edit it.
  5. Press MENU and then tap Save.

Enabling data roaming

Data roaming lets you connect to your mobile operator’s partner networks and access data services when you are out of your mobile operator’s coverage area.
Important: Accessing data services while roaming may incur significant charges. Inquire about the data roaming tariffs with your mobile operator before enabling data roaming.
  1. From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Wireless & networks.
  2. Tap Mobile networks, and then select the Data roaming check box.
You can also select the Data roaming sound check box, if you’d like your phone to play a sound so you’ll know when it is connecting to a roaming network.
