MTN Settings

I have an MTN sim card and when I connect via USB to PC and use Blackberry's Desktop Manager to dial up to the internet the connection happens yet I am unable to browse or access the net in any way. Even pinging Google has Request timed out. How do I find settings to browse?

Re: MTN Settings

Hi and Welcome to the Community!


Please start here:

  • KB05178 Support for tethered modem use

Please note carefully that not all carriers allow this feature; and of those that do, many charge additional fees for it. But, only your carrier (MTN) can answer those questions for you.


Good luck!
