With an increase in the number of Android phones including Samsung, Tecno, iTel, Motorolla, etc being used by many, the need for high speed internet has also increased. This is due to the benefits associated for example, access to social media, YouTube streaming, making money, etc which users enjoy once connected.

While telecom companies try to automatically push internet settings on the different phones, not all of them are supported. This means that for such Android phones, access to high speed internet can only be achieved by manually activating the settings on such a mobile.

If you happen to search the different stores which deal in mobile devices, you will realize how internet enabled gadgets are on an increased demand as compared to the non-gprs, wap, edge, 3g, 4g and other supported devices.

When I wrote some articles some time back which were all about how to set up gprs/wap/internet for china made phones,  readers requested for this and I am honoring the request. If you are looking for how to activate high speed internet on any android manually, this post has the answer.
