If you are using a handset from another provider, when you get your new SIM, insert it into your phone. You should then receive an automatic message from An Post Mobile with your new settings. When you get this message follow the instructions and your phone should be set up.

If for some reason you do not receive this message, or you want to manually add the internet settings yourself, you can change the settings on your phone to access An Post Mobile Data services, as set out below: 

Android Data/MMS settings
1. Go to Settings   >   Wireless & Networks   >   Mobile Networks  >   Access Point Names and delete all existing APN’s.
