Setting up my Android phone/tablet for internet data and MMS?

To be able to use mobile data or MMS services, you will need to make certain setups on your mobile device running on Android OS. In some devices, such setups are entered automatically when the Vip SIM card is inserted for the first time, while other devices require manual setup.

Please watch the video tutorial "Automatic and manual setup of mobile data and MMS services for Android devices"

 

Automatic setup for mobile internet and MMS settings*

In some Android devices, there is an option called "Internet Settings", which should automatically download the required mobile data and MMS settings when activated.

  1. First, connect to the internet through your Wi-Fi network, so the "Internet Settings" option can download the settings.
  2. Then, go to Settings - More
  3. At the bottom of the menu, select the "Internet Settings" option. The system will prompt you to give permission to connect to the internet and to download the mobile data and MMS settings.
  4. Once you press "Accept", the device will start downloading the settings.
  5. Then, select "Mobile networks" - Access Point Names.
  6. Under "APNs", you will see two options; select "Internet".

Your device is now ready to use mobile data and MMS services.

 

Manual internet setup*

If there is no "Internet settings" option on your device, or you are not connected to a Wi-Fi network so an automatic setup can take place, then we recommend that you proceed to manual setup.

  1. Go to Settings – More – Mobile Networks – Access Point Names.
  2. Press the symbol "+" in the upper right corner.
  3. A list will pop up and you be prompted to fill it in.
  4. Press on "Name" and type in "Vip Internet"
  5. Press on the field "APN" and type in "vipoperator".
  6. Press on the field "Username" and type in "vipoperator".
  7. Press on the field "Password" and type in "vipoperator".
  8. The other fields are not mandatory.
  9. In the upper right corner, press on the three dots and select the option "Save", so the system saves your settings and then, it will return you to the "APNs" field.

The same procedure applies to the MMS settings:

  1. Press the symbol "+" placed in the upper right corner again.
  2. Press "Name" and type in "MMS"
  3. Press "APN" and type in "vipoperator.mms"
  4. Press "Username" and type in "vipoperator".
  5. Press "Password" and type in "vipoperator".
  6. Press "MMSC" and type in "http://mmsc.vipoperator.com.mk"
  7. Press "MMS proxy" and type in "78.40.0.1""
  8. Press "MMS port" and type in "8080"
  9. The other fields are not mandatory.
  10. In the upper right corner, press on the three dots and select the option "Save", so the system saves your settings and then, it will return you to the "APNs" field. 

Your device is now ready to use mobile data and MMS services.
