Setting up cellular data via APN afrihost

+3 votes
I want to set up my iPhone in order to access the Internet via Afrihost Data Network.
I followed the steps suggested on your website and set the APN to afrihost for Cellular,
MMS and Personal Hotspot. This was not successful.
Which settings should I use for MMSC and MMS Proxy?
Thank you.

Hey Piet

When using the Afrihost APN you may struggle to send MMSes. You have to set the APN to the MTN one to achieve this.

This is a problem we are aware of and trying to rectify on our side asap.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
