If you intend using Airtel, configure using the Airtel APN settings here. Same can be done for glo. Just use APN as gloflat or glosecure. More details on how to configure glo internet can be found here.

Guess what I am trying to say is, make sure you use the correct settings of your network configuration. Most importantly, the APN. You can do away with the other settings.

If You  ready  have a  network modem and wish to unlock it to use any network sim, please send your modem IMEI  number to 090——– along with N500 recharge airtime so  that i help you u unlock it and send you the unlock code.
