I have a samsung galaxy tab, and I got the configuration settings sent to me. However, I get an error when I try to install them.

I manually went to settings to look up my access points, and I only have one : MMS. I would like to try manually create the internet APN setting. Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks!

Edit. Sorted it out. Thanks guys.

You can also SMS “setup”, phone make and phone model to 185. (e.g. Setup Nokia N73) and the settings will be sent to your phone. its a free SMS.

Good day ALL;

Kindly note that Telkom Mobile has instituted a Fair Usage Policy (FUP) on products offering unlimited BIS/BES.

Once customers reach 5GB usage per month, their internet speed will be reduced. While they will be still able to upload and download DATA can expect speeds of up to 128Kbps once they have exceeded 5GB within that month. The throttling down will also impact the 500MB allocated for You tube streaming as well.

This decision comes on the back of a review usage of the unlimited BIS/BES benefits. This data benefit was designed for people to use for Email, Social media and web-surfing via their Smart phones. Most of the customers requirement are accommodated comfortable within 5GB per month.
