​DATA/MMS SETTINGS

IIf you have inserted the An Post Mobile SIM into your phone (and, if switching your number, it has been moved over to An Post Mobile) you should have received an automatic message from An Post Mobile with your new settings. If you got that message and followed the instructions your phone should be set up.

If you did not download the settings, or you did not automatically receive the phone settings (Internet/data/calls/texts) and the Internet (data) is still not working.

First: make sure that your phone has mobile data turned on (go to Settings - Mobile Network - Mobile data - then turn on Mobile Data) then go to our Self Care Settings facility to get the setting sent to your phone..

Still not getting access to the internet? If you still do not have Internet access when not on Wi-Fi having followed the instructions in the Settings message, make sure that your phone has mobile data turned on (go to Settings - Mobile Network - Mobile data - then turn on Mobile Data).  If you still do not have access to the Internet you can manually change the settings on your phone to access An Post Mobile Data (Internet) 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.
2.  Create a new Internet APN with settings
Name: Postmobile
APN: isp.postfone.ie
MCC: 272
MNC: 01
APN Type: default, supl
