To configure GSM (Mobile phone) and Modem (WCDA/HSDPA) is one of the difficulties many people do encounter. I remember those days when i was in higher institution, I know how much I make in a week, just to configure people phones and modem. Most often, you may worry about internet configuration and settings if you are using GSM or WCDMA/HSDPA. In this post you will see a well detailed and comprehensive tutorial I have put together to help you configure your 3G phones for MTN, GLO, Etisalat and Airtel 3.5G services both automatically and manually, including the modems of these networks.

Activating CDMA mobile internet for Visafone, Starcomms, Zoom Mobile
CDMA networks carry specific phones preloaded with network settings like internet settings. Hence, if you bought your CDMA phone with internet capability from an authorized outlet of CDMA networks like Starcomms, Visafone, Reltel, Zoom mobile, or Multi-Links it is likely to be preloaded with internet settings. However, inquire form the outlet you bought it, just to be sure.
