Lycamobile APN Settings

If you need to set up an APN for Lycamobile, take a look at our guide below; it contains all the details you need to get your phone online!

What is an APN?

APN stands for Access Point Name. Essentially, it’s the key to your phone connecting to wireless services, predominantly the internet.

The APN on most phones is preconfigured, and on phones purchased through contract, it can be locked to a specific setting or carrier. However, unlocked and reconditioned phones can allow you to change your APN settings.

You may need to change your APN settings if your phone is coming from another country or if you’re changing your SIM carrier.

Every carrier will have separate APN settings for their network, so you must have the correct APN.

Often, when you choose a new carrier or network, the SIM will automatically update the APN settings, so you don’t need to do anything. However, there can be occasions where you need to enter the details manually.

When entering APN settings, bear in mind that you must enter the details exactly as they are shown, taking into account spaces (or lack thereof) and capitals.
