How to Browse with Glo BIS on your Nokia Phones

Recently, I shared how to use Globacom Blackberry internet subscription on computer , iPad/ iPhone and Android devices. Since then, I have received several mails and texts from Nokia users, asking me if the Glo BIS can also work on their Nokia phones. 

Well, as at the time of publishing this, the Glo BIS works perfectly on Nokia phones. If you can set up a personal configuration , using blackberry. net as the Access Point Name (APN), you will be able to browse with the Glo BIS on your Nokia. 

=> Subscribe to Globacom BIS with your Glo SIM. Text coweek to 777 for N400/week plan and text comonth to 777 for N1400/ month plan.

=> On your Nokia phone, go to Settings ; Configuration Scroll down till you seePersonal Settings. Select it. 

=> After that, Click on Options, select Add New. Choose Access Point, You will see :Account name and Access Point Settings

=> Enter Glo BIS or any name as the Account name, Thereafter, Select Access Point settings, then Bearer settings. You will then see a list of settings you can change. Just edit them as listed below:

Packet data access point: blackberry. net || Network type: IPv4 || Authentication type:Normal || Username& Password: (leave blank)

=> Once you are done, just select Back 3 times. You should see the new APN you created in a list under Personal accounts with a G-like icon.

Activating the Access Point 
=> From Menu, go to Settings ; Connectivity ; Packet Data, You will see: Packet Data Connection and Packet Data Settings

=> Set Packet Data Connection to Always Online, Then select Packet Data Settings. You will see: Active Access Point and Edit Active Access Point. SelectActive Access Point and you should see a list of Access Points. 

=> Select the one you created above (which I named GloBIS as explained above) and select Activate.

Web Settings Configuration
=> From Menu, go to Settings ; Configuration. Scroll down till you see Personal Settings. Select it. Then click on Options, click Add New. Choose Web.
=> You will then see a list of settings you can change. Just edit them as listed below:

Account Name: GlobacomBIS ( This can be any name) || Homepage: ( This can be any web/wap url) || Username &Password:(leave blank) Use preferred access point Yes

=> Once you are done, just select Back. You should see the new web setting you created in a list under Personal accounts with a ball-like icon. Thereafter, highlight the Web setting, select Options and select Activate.

Phone Configuration
=> From Menu, Go to Settings ; Configuration. You will see: Default config. settings ,Default in all apps , Preferred Access Point and Personal Settings. Just edit them as listed below:

Default config. settings: choose Personal config Default in all apps: Yes || Preferred Access Point: choose the Access Point created earlier (GloBIS) || Personal settings: Just leave it the way it is. 

Configuring Your Phones Web Browser
=> From Menu, Go to Internet. Scroll down till you see Web Settings. Select it, Scroll down to Configuration Settings. Select it. You will see: Configuration and Account

=> Select Configuration and choose Personal config from the list. This simply ensures that your phones browser uses the personal configuration you created manually. Thats all!!!
