Get Talkmobile settings for your phone
- Why you need Talkmobile settings
You need Talkmobile settings for your phone so you can use our services. This is the case even if you bought your phone from us as the settings aren’t pre-loaded.
The kind of services that need settings are sending picture messages and browsing the Internet on your phone.
Settings are usually downloaded automatically when you put your SIM in your phone for the first time, so you probably won't need to do anything.
However, occasionally settings won’t download correctly and you’ll need to ask for them to be sent again. Don’t worry, it’s not technical and it’s easy to do.
- Times you're likely to need Talkmobile settings
If you’ve put a Talkmobile SIM in a phone for the first time and are having trouble using any of our services such as accessing the Internet or sending picture messages, you may need to ask for settings to be re-sent.
