How to connect the Internet to a smartphone?

Smartphones are good because they allow you not only to make calls, but also to use modern network services: chat and video chat, watch websites and send emails. But how to connect the Internet to get access to all these functions?

We will tell about it in this article, and you can find answers to other similar questions on our website in the section Smartphones.

How to connect the Internet on Android

Connect the Internet on a smartphone running Android in two ways. The most profitable option is Wi-Fi, because the traffic with such a connection is free and the speed is high. To connect Wi-Fi on Android, go to the “Settings” menu, select “Wireless Networks” and activate Wi-Fi. After that, open the “Wi-Fi Settings” item and select the desired network. If necessary, enter the password and click "Connect".

To connect 3G / 4G-Internet to Android, go to the “Settings” menu, select “Data transfer> More> Mobile networks” and check the box “Allow mobile data transfer”.In different versions of Android, the names of the points can be translated differently (for example, “Enable access to data on the mobile network”), but the principle is usually the same everywhere. The settings of the access point for mobile Internet are usually automatically received from the cellular operator.

To connect to the Internet on iPhone, go to the “Settings” menu, open the “Wi-Fi” section and turn on Wi-Fi. Select the desired network from the list, enter the password if necessary, and click “Connect.” And to turn on 3G, all in the same menu “Settings” select the item “Cellular Data” and turn on the option of the same name. Settings for a particular operator are usually set automatically.

Internet on Windows Phone

In Windows Phone 8.1, to set up the Internet, you need to slide your finger from the top edge of the screen down and press the “Wi-Fi” button, and when “Available” appears on it, click again. In the list, select the desired network and enter a password, if required.

To turn on 3G, swipe down from the top of the screen and select “All Settings”. Find the section “Cellular network + SIM” in the list and activate the option “Data transfer”. If you click on the operator’s name in the “SIM card settings” item, you can specify which connection should be used for data transfer - 2G, 3G or 4G (if supported).
