Data connection

Your phone will be automatically set up 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're 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 save battery life and save money on data charges. However, if you don’t have data connection turned on and you’re also not connected to a Wi-Fi network, you won’t 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.

Adding a new access point

Before you add another data connection on your phone, have the access point name and settings (including username and password if required) from your mobile operator ready.
  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

Connect to your mobile operator’s partner networks and access data services when you’re out of your mobile operator’s coverage area.

Warning: Using data services while roaming will be costly. Check with your mobile operator for data roaming rates before you use 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.
Select the Data roaming sound check box if you’d like your phone to play a sound so you’ll know when it’s connecting to a roaming network.
