Most android OS phones use follow the same path to set up the APN setttings. The way to get to the Mobile Settings icon may slightly vary but it is mainly the same thing in any brand such as Samsung, BLU, Huawei, LG, ZTE, etc etc.

First you need to insert your SIM Card. It is possible that when you insert the SIM card, the data settings may be automatically detected from the SIM card or it may not.

  7. Tab “ADD” in order to create a new APN
