How do I set up my phone manually to work with BT Mobile?

Most of the time you can get yourself set up automatically by following the instructions we text you once you put your new SIM into your phone.

If your phone can't automatically accept the settings, you need to put them in yourself.

For other phones, there are four main settings you need for data:

  • APN: everywhere
  • Authentication type: PAP
  • User name: eesecure
  • Password: ee

Use our guides to show you how to put them in. (The guides might show other settings as well, but you should only need to put in these ones here for everything to work.)



If you can't find a guide for your phone, we may not have one for it yet. Here's a general guide on what to do:

To set up your phone for data

  1. From the home screen, tap the Menu button.
  2. Tap Settings

Your data should now work.
