Data Loading?

+2 votes
I have completed payment received my invoice yet I don't seem to have received any notification on my phone for the data I have purchased? How does it work to receive the data? So I can use it to tether onto the Internet through my phone.  It mentioned something re APN setting - what is this and how do i set this up on my black berry curve ?

Thank you Warren

Hello Warren 

Thank you for the question. 

The data is delivered as soon as your order is completed, no need to worry about the payment clearing. 

Unfortunately there is no notification received via SMS to say your data is active but our data is allocated so quick there is no need, The Client Zone will show the data is there if you would like to see it and check balances. 

You would need to setup the APN in order to access the data, For your device please use these steps, 

Select Settings > Options.
Complete one of the following:
– BlackBerry v4.0 or earlier, click TCP/IP.
– BlackBerry v4.1 to 5.0, click Advanced Options > TCP/IP.
– BlackBerry v6.0 and later, click Device > Advanced System Settings > TCP/IP.
Enter Afrihost into the APN field.
Important: Ensure there is NO space before or after Afrihost.
Press the Menu key.
Select Save.
