Configure Nokia C3 with Globacom Mobile Internet Settings

Nokia C3 can be manually configured to browse the internet using Globacom Internet. Unlike MTN, Etisalat and Airtel, Globacom Nigeria has different access point names (APN) for different internet services. If you want to use Globacom Internet Bundles with your phone ( irrespective of the model or maker) , you must make sure you configure your phone to use :

gloflat as the APN,
flat as the username
flat as the password.


If you can configure your phone to use those three parameters as the default web/internet settings, then you will be able to browse the internet with your phone using Globacom bundles.

Access Point Configuration

From your Nokia c3 Menu, Go to Settings --> Configuration. Then scroll down till you see “Personal Settings”. Select it.  Click on “Options”, select “Add New”. Choose “Access Point”.  You will see : “Account name” and “Access Point Settings”.  Enter "GloAPN” 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 pt: gloflat
Network type: IPv4
Authentication  type: Normal
Username: flat
Password: flat

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 your Nokia c3 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”.  Select “Active Access Point”  and you should see a list of Access Points. Just choose the one you created above ( which I named GloAPN as explained above) and select “Activate”.

Web Settings Configuration

From your Nokia c3 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: Glo  ( You can use any name)
Homepage:  http://www.NairaMan.com ( You can use any url)
Username: flat
Password: flat
Use preferred access pt: Yes

Then just select “Back” by pressing the RSK. You would see the new Web Setting you created in a list under “Personal accounts”. Then, highlight this Web setting, select “Options” and select “Activate”.

Phone Configuration

From your Nokia c3 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 ( GloAPN)
Personal settings = Just leave it the way it is

Configuring Your Phone’s Web Browser

From your Nokia C3 Menu, Go to “Internet”. Scroll down till you see “Web Settings”. Select it.  Then scroll down to “Configuration Settings”. Select it. You will then see: “Configuration” and “Account”. Select “Configuration” and choose “Personal config” from the list.  This simply ensures that your phone’s browser uses the “personal configuration” you created manually.

That should be all. Just use a Globacom SIM with active Internet bundle subscription into the phone, you should be able to access the internet.
