One of the great advantages of today’s phones, and that we sometimes take for granted, is their mobility. Unlike traditional models, for your smartphone to work it does not need to be connected to a telephone line or an electrical outlet 24 hours a day. That is why today we will explain how to configure the Telcel APN in a few steps.
Thanks to technological advances, we can take them anywhere and use them when we need them. And even better, we can have an Internet connection whenever we want.
Now, this much desired service can be easily interrupted by a bad APN configuration. Therefore, in this article we will teach you how to configure the APN of the Telcel company on Android and iOS cell phones. But first we will briefly explain what this aspect of Internet connections is and how it works.
What is the APN
It is the acronym in English for Access Point Name or Name of Access Point in Spanish. In simple terms, it is a “door” through which a mobile must pass to connect to the Internet through cellular data. Each operating company has its own APN, which includes Telcel. That is why it is important to know what an APN is and what it is for and how to configure it .
This makes it easy for them to control Internet access through their system. Therefore, if you want to browse the web with your mobile data, you will have to have the “key” that allows you to do so through your operator.
In general, this information is configured automatically when inserting a new SIM card in a mobile. This is a feedback system between the phone and the operator to save the user some work. However, sometimes this automated process fails, preventing you from connecting to the Internet for data.
If this is your case, you must configure the APN of your device manually so that you can connect to the Internet with your data. Doing it is very simple, so much so that it will not take you even 5 minutes. To do this, you must follow a specific route within the configuration of your mobile and then fill in certain fields with the information that we will give you in this article.
