Click on the option to create a New profile. Leave the access number at the default value of *99#.

Enter a suitable name for the new profile, this can be anything meaningful to you simply to identify the profile.

Set the APN field to Static and enter in the appropriate Access Point Name for your network operator:

 

Vodafone - internet
Orange - orangeinternet
O2 - mobile.o2.co.uk
T-Mobile - general.t-mobile.uk
Three - three.co.uk

 

NOTE - other APNs are available, contact your network provider for the correct information.

 

 

Enter in the appropriate username and password details for your network operator:

 

Vodafone - 'web' for both
Orange - leave blank
O2 - 'web' for both
T-Mobile - leave blank
Three - leave blank

 

Again, other details are available depending on your service, consult your network operator for the correct details - but to be honest you can mostly get away with anything, connections are not authenticated by username and password but by your SIM's profile with the billing system.
