Some of our readers have asked if I have the Smile APN settings for using a Smile 4G/LTE SIM in a smartphone or tablet. So, I asked on your behalf, and have the information here for your use. As a bonus, I have also included APN settings for Smile Uganda and Tanzania.

1. Note: Your smartphone or tablet must support LTE 800 band. Check the pack or documentation. We have tried to give you pointers by providing a list of LTE phones that are available in Nigeria already. Smile also has a list of supported tablets.

2. Normally, your device should automatically configure itself once you pop in your Smile SIM (I am told that BB10 devices do this). If it doesn’t, below are the settings for the configuration if it is not automatically pulled from the network.
