How do I set up my phone for internet access and picture messaging (MMS)?

If you bought your device directly from us (rather than through a third-party like Carphone Warehouse), then it should already be set up and ready to go.

However, if you're still having problems, you’ll need to update the APN settings – these are the Vodafone network settings which allow you to connect to the internet.

  1. Text WEB to 40127 (free from your Vodafone mobile)
  2. You’ll receive a text to let you know your settings are on their way
  3. You’ll receive a second text containing the settings – simply follow the instructions and save the settings to complete the setup
    Please note – on some phones, this message may go into the configuration folder, rather than your usual text message folder

I haven’t received the text message

If you didn’t get the text and have checked the configuration folder, you’ll need to update the APN settings manually.

  1. Go to our device guides
  2. Choose 'Phone'
  3. Choose your device make and model

    Select the make of your device
  4. Choose Set up phone for internet (if it’s not displayed, go to Office and Leisure in the left-hand menu, then choose Internet) and follow the setup instructions

Recently updated your iOS software?

If you’re a Pay monthly customer with an iPhone and you've recently updated your iOS software, you don’t need to update your settings – they should be up-to-date.

If you’re a Pay as you go customer and you’ve recently updated your iOS software, please ensure your APN is – all other settings will be correct. To find where APN is located on your phone, please see our device guides
