Configuring your SIM for Internet Access

Configuring your SIM for Internet Access

The instructions below guide you through configuring your smartphone for mobile data via your Omerta Encrypted SIM. The process can be broken into 3 distinct steps:
  1. Changing your profile
  2. Selecting your network provider
  3. Creating an Access Point Name 

Each step takes a minute or so to complete and are similar to what might be done when configuring your phone for roaming with a normal network provider. 

The instructions provided are specifically for an Omerta handset however the steps are the same for Android & iPhone (however the location for each setting might vary slightly between phones). 

If you have any questions please email support or start a new ticket.
