Nokia 501s APN Settings

Hi all!

I have one doubt: I need to configure an APN for this mobile phone, but actually I can't. I explore all the mobile settings but nothing. Maybe I need to put a SIM card inside to get that option on the mobile data menu? Anyway, could be the Software Version (1.0) ??

 

Thank you for your help.

You need to insert the sim card for the phone to pick up settings,you can get the settings set to your phone via sms or by looking at your providers website.

Re: Nokia 501s APN Settings

Unlike in older Asha phone where the "configuration settings" menu was always visible, in Asha 501 you indeed need to first insert a SIM-card to the phone. The access point settings will be visible only after that. However in most cases the phone should also automatically recognize the correct settings and manual APN configuration should not be needed.
