To use Mobile Internet services, you must have an internet-capable mobile device, sufficient Data balance or Real Credit balance, and the mobile data connection must be turned on. The Access Point Name (APN) should be configured to “internet”. To use 4G services, one must have a 4G-capable device and be in a 4G coverage area. To use 3G services, one must have a 3G-capable device and be in a 3G coverage area.
Go to Settings, Search for Mobile Data (or Cellular Data) and activate the connection. For smartphones, the user may swipe down from the notification bar and Select the Mobile Data icon. Two arrow icons will appear in the notification bar to indicate that the connection has been made.
Android: Go to Settings > Connections > Data Usage > Mobile Data (Swipe the icon to the right to turn ON, swipe left to turn OFF)
iPhone: Go to Settings > Mobile Data > Mobile Data (Swipe the icon to the right to turn ON, swipe left to turn OFF)
Mobile internet services can either be charged from a Mobile Data Plan or Real Credit balance.
To stop using mobile internet, deactivate the Mobile Data connection.
