An Post Mobile Data / Internet Settings

(Note: Our FAQ page has the answers to many commonly asked questions on moving your number, unlocking you phone etc.)

You should have received a 'settings message' when you first put your An Post Mobile SIM card into your phone. If you followed the message instructions your phone should have access to the internet and be able to make/receive calls and texts.

If you did not receive this message, or you got it and are still having difficulties setting up your phone e.g. you cannot get the internet working, we can resend the settings to your phone. Get the settings sent to my phone

This will bring you to a new web page with a box that says Enter Phone Number. Enter your number (the one your are setting up) and click on Submit. The settings will then be sent to your phone. Wait for the settings message to come in and when your receive it follow the instructions in the message. Your phone should then be fully set up and you should have access to the internet (to check this turn off any WiFi and see if you can use the internet).
