Is is quite difficult, if not impossible, for some phone users to get connected to Globacom wap or Globacom GPRS internet. Simply because not all phones accept the automatic configuration SMS message that Glo Nigeria sends.

The website of Globacom Nigeria does not show the required settings, but I was able to retrieve them through some other phone users;

WAP Settings;

  • Name: Glogwap
  • Homepage: http://wap.gloworld.com/
  • Bearer: GPRS
  • Access Point (APN): glogwap
  • IP Address: 10.100.98.22
  • Username: wap
  • Password: wap
  • Session Mode: permanent
  • Connection Security: off
  • Authentication type: normal
  • Login type: Automatic

MMS Settings

  • Name: Glomms
  • Homepage: http://mms.gloworld.com/mmsc
  • Bearer: GPRS
  • Access Point (APN): glomms
  • IP Address: 10.100.82.4
  • Username: mms
  • Session Mode: permanent
  • Authentication type: normal

It works now fine for me, except on my HTC phone which is running Window Mobile. It seems until now not possible to get Glo Nigeria to work on my Windows Mobile powered HTC Touch smart phone.
