GoSmart hit the networking industry with a storm with its unique business ideas. It lends their services to independent dealers and let them work under their own brand name. GoSmart offers SIM wireless services and omits the need for contract making the life of dealers a whole lot easier.

It is a widely used service provider and thus has an optimized set of APN settings for optimal data transactions.

Today we have arranged a step by step guide to help you arrange the APN settings for faster data transactions on your smartphone.

What is APN?

Access Point Name, or APN, is a gateway between different networks that help the carrier distinguish between different users.
Think of it as a waiter in a restaurant. You give your orders to the waiter and he passes those orders to the cooking staff. He then brings you the food you ordered.

Like the waiter works as the link between you and the cooks, APN functions as the link between you and your service carriers.

APN helps the carriers distinguish between different users. It tells the carriers which network you are operating on (GPS, GPRS, 3G, 4G LTE, etc.), which data plan you opted for and helps them deciding which IP Address to assign to you.

APN settings are installed automatically when you first activate the carrier SIM in your smartphone but in some cases, the settings installed are not updated, or the device is unable to save those settings.

In cases where the device is reset the settings might need to be optimized manually.

Now, setting APN is no rocket science. But, even a slight spelling mistake can lead you not to be able to use your data at all.
No sweat though! We have arranged a thorough guide to help you cross this rift.

Make sure to follow the guide word for word and you will be good to go.

Common Issues with GoSmart Application and their Solutions

Blank Screen During Login

You would have observed that once the app launches, there is a little period of time when the screen is dark before the program fails, either with or without an error message. This problem does not have many solutions.

  1. It’s most likely just a temporary loading issue. To get to the recent apps menu, just touch the first left button on your phone. The app is then closed. Now launch the app again. It could function normally.
  2. Restart your Android device by Pressing the “Home” and “Power” buttons at the same time for up to 10 seconds. After that, try to release the buttons, but hold “Power” until the screen restarts once more. You can now attempt to launch the app; it could work as intended.
  3. If nothing mentioned above ends up working, you can wait until your phone switches off automatically after the battery is low. Charge your phone after that, and then turn it on. Afterward, it might work.
  4. If none of your previous fixes your issue with the launch, you need to uninstall the software and reinstall it. Android usually restores all settings once you reinstall and log into the app. Check if that fixes the problem.
  5. Consider installing an earlier version of the application if the re-install phase still fails, even in exceedingly exceptional situations.

Go Smart Account Login issue

If you are experiencing login or account-related issues, kindly follow these instructions.

The Go Smart servers could crash due to the login/account error on your Application. After a while, kindly try adding your account details again.

You might be logging in with the wrong Pin or Password. Please make sure to enter the correct details.

If you are logging in through the Social Networking apps like Facebook, Twitter, or Google, there is a slight possibility that GoSmart App is not supported or some in-app permissions are off. Try to enable permissions, and you might be able to access it.
