Windows Phone has Windows Phone 10 Operative System (OS) developed by Microsoft. Phone brands such as Nokia, Alcatel, HP and Acer are some of the brands that have models with Windows Phone 10 OS.

So after inserting the SIM Card and turning on the Data on your phone there are 2 possible situations:

1. If you bought your Windows Phone directly from the carrier, you should be able to surf on the internet without having to configure the Windows Phone APN Settings

2. But if you bought it as an unlocked phone, then it is possible that you might need to manually set up the APN Settings in order to be able to use the Data of you mobile network provider.
