    Each operator has a different APN which is automatically configured on your smartphone if all goes well. However, it is possible that following a migration to Free Mobile, you may encounter connection problems. Trying to configure Free's APN on your smartphone can then solve these problems.

    The APN, Access Point Name or Access Point Name in French, is made up of all the connection information concerning a given network for each operator, such as Internet access or even sending and receiving from MMS. This data is set automatically when you insert an operator's SIM card into your smartphone. But following a malfunction or mishandling, the APN may be incorrect, and it is then up to the user to modify it manually.

    Whether you have an Android or Apple smartphone, you can configure the APN manually on it. Simply retrieve the information listed below and enter it into your smartphone.
