It is very easy to start using mobile Internet on your phone – you just need a phone that supports mobile Internet and our Internet on Phone service. If you would like to find out if your phone supports mobile Internet, please review its instructions for use. The easiest way to find out if you have signed up to the Internet on Phone is to ask My LMT.
To surf the Internet, the parameters of our mobile Internet should be set in your phone. Most phones do not require any setting of parameters or configuration to use our mobile Internet – it is done by the manufacturer or when a SIM card is inserted in the phone. But there are also older phone models that should be set manually.
To set the parameters of LMT mobile Internet in your phone, please text PG to 1688. When you receive the parameters, save them.
To set LMT MMS parameters in your phone, please text MMSP to 1688. When you receive MMS parameters, save them.
If you receive a message that your phone does not support text messages with parameters, you will have to set them yourself.
Parameters should be set only once – the telephone will “remember” them.

A smartphone is a combination of a phone and a computer. It has all the regular functions of a mobile phone, as well as an integrated camera, a planner and e-mail. The main advantage of a smartphone is its unlimited capacity for adding new functions by downloading various mobile apps. Smartphones have a touchscreen.
An app (application) is a software installed in your mobile phone and used repeatedly – like in a computer. You can use apps to adapt the functionality of your phone to your needs and wishes.
1. Visit an app store that offers apps for your OS.
2. Search for an app by its name or a keyword.
3. When you have found an app, download it.
App stores offer free and paid apps. The price can be found in the details of each app.
It depends on the complexity, functionality, resolution of the integrated graphics and other factors. App Store and Android Market provide information about the size of apps in their details. Before you download any apps, please check how much data will be consumed.
Mobile pages are Internet sites that are modified for use in mobile phones. They are user friendly and contain all the information you might need. Internet on phone can be used to open any mobile pages – you do not have to download them, just enter the address. Mobile pages consume much less data than regular Internet sites.
Wi-Fi is a technology that enables wireless Internet in a specific place, e.g. an apartment, an office, a cafe, etc. A router is used in this relatively small area to enable Wi-Fi functionality. Wi-Fi router is a device that transforms wired Internet into a wireless Internet network.
Generally, all modern smartphones, computers and tablets support the Wi-Fi technology, and these devices can be used to connect to a Wi-Fi router and use the wireless network. To do that, you have to choose the name of a Wi-Fi network in the network menu of your smartphone, computer or tablet and enter a password, if it is required.
But the easiest way to use wireless Internet on you smartphone, computer or tablet is via the LMT Mobile Internet. It is available wherever the LMT has coverage in Latvia – not in a limited area like the Wi-Fi. You do not have to worry, either, where to find the closest Wi-Fi network and what the password is.
Video streaming is the watching of videos online – the video file does not have to be saved in your mobile phone or computer. It means that you can watch all videos instantaneously instead of waiting for them to finish downloading.
Downloading of videos means that video files are downloaded and saved in the memory of your mobile phone or computer. When a video is downloaded it can be played many times. Streaming allows to watch videos online without saving them in your phone.
Yes! You can enjoy Skype on your phone, if you use the Internet and your OS (Android, iOS or Windows Mobile) allows to download the Skype app. If your phone has a different OS, check on www.skype.com – this site lists all OS that support the downloading of the Skype app.
To send and receive e-mails on your phone, make sure that your phone is connected to the Internet on phone. E-mail services should function in all telephones that support Internet connections.
To access your e-mail, you have two choices.
1. Use the e-mail app installed in your phone. To use the e-mail you have to install it in your phone. If you use one of the most popular e-mail services (e.g. Gmail, Yahoo, etc.), you will have to enter just your e-mail address and password. In case of other services you will also have to enter other parameters, e.g. a server address. These parameters are available on the homepage of the respective e-mail service.
2. Check your e-mail in the homepage of the service provider – open a browser, enter the Internet address of your e-mail service (e.g., gmail.com or inbox.lv, etc.), and log in with your username and password.
Internet traffic is the flow of data generated by all of your activities online – opening of Internet and mobile pages, e-mail correspondence, downloading of e-mail attachments and other files, streaming of online radio and TV, watching of YouTube videos, updating of telephone software, downloading of games and apps, etc.
To help estimate the Internet traffic, we have prepared a “cheat sheet”.
- Google Maps navigation – ~2 MB/h (depending on the population density and other factors)
- Approximately 200 WhatsApp text messages – 1 MB
- E-mail without any attachments, just text – 0.01 to 0.1 MB
- Opening (downloading) of an A4 text document – 0.2 MB
- Opening of an online news portal – 2.5 MB
- Downloading of a high resolution photo – 2 to 4 MB
- Downloading of an audio file – 5 MB
- Watching of a video on YouTube – 5 MB per minute on the average, but it depends in the resolution of the video – the higher it is, the more data is consumed
- Internet radio – 1 MB minute
If the respective e-mail message contains only text, the data traffic will not exceed 0.1 MB. The consumption of data will increase, when you open and send e-mails with attachments – pictures, documents, etc.
It depends on how long you watch and what phone you use. This table will help to understand it better.
Type of phone and resolution of screen
Tablets and phones with resolution that exceeds 320x240 pixels (iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S2, etc.)
~ 3.9 MB/min
Telephones with average resolution – 320x240 pixels
~ 3.3 MB/min
Telephones with resolution from 176x144 to 320x240 pixels
~ 1.7 MB/min
It is calculated in the following units:
Remember, that Internet speed is calculated in bits, but traffic in bytes.
Internet on a phone makes your life more comfortable – you can do everything and even more than you could at your computer – anywhere! We have listed just some of the most popular activities that you can enjoy if you have the Internet on phone.
And there is much more! Use other useful and clever tools to make your life easier, e.g. a QR code reader, a torch, an insect repellent and many others!
