    Thanks! Though how would i set it up? I tried putting minternet in the apn and leave the username and password blank. when i tried enabling the 3G, it doesn't show the 3G icon nor would able to connect using safari or any application that uses connection. Is there something wrong with my set up?

    thanks, i really am not good with this...

    call sun (200) and ask for your 3g service to be activated. If 3g is not showing up, it means its not active yet.

    try sending 4 (the number four) to 230010 to activate your internet services or call them so that they can manually activate it.

    just call the customer service (dial 200 using your phone), it will be easier.

    you can still go directly to any Sun Cellular business center and have it activated there directly.
