Mobile Phone Data Settings For Our Telekom / Breeze Mobile in the Solomon Islands

This post may contain affiliate links that I earn a small commission from at no cost to you. Please see my disclosure page for information.

In most of the countries I have been to, my iPhone has automatically detected the carrier settings and configured itself for me. The Solomon Islands is to date the one exception. It worked fine for voice calls and text messages, but when it came to data usage, no go.

After a little bit of hunting around online, I found this site which told me what the Data APN should be.

Coming from Australia, my Data APN would normally have been yesinternet as I am on the Optus network, however it was blank. I assume this is because my phone determined they were not the correct settings for the Solomon Islands and removed them. In the Solomon Islands though on the Our Telekom / Breeze network, it must be set to internet.

My phone did not receive these settings automatically unfortunately, but after that was entered data worked like a breeze. Pardon the pun.

On an iPhone you can find your mobile data settings by navigating to:

Settings > Mobile > Mobile Data Network

You can then set your data and personal hotspot APN’s which will normally be the same.

Save money on your holiday

Travel Money & Currency Conversion: We use both Up Bank and Wise for the best currency conversion rates with support for Apple Pay and Android Pay plus excellent in-app customer support while you are travelling.

Flights: We check a few sites for different prices. Travelling from Australia, I always check Qantas directly for reward flights, but otherwise, I check and compare the cost of flights with SkyScanner. It’s always worth checking alternative routes and days, especially where there are multiple stopover options or nearby alternative airports.

Accommodation: We usually book through Agoda as we find their prices are the lowest and cancellation policies + loyalty benefits work out the best. We also use Airbnb from time to time.

Car Rental: We use AutoEurope to compare rental car prices with all the big international brands like Europcar, Budget, Hertz and Avis. We usually end up using Avis or Europcar as they offer the best deals (make sure to check their current offers for bonus discounts) and both maintain their vehicles well with relatively new fleets.

Tours & Activities: We generally try to book activities through one of these third-party sites ViatorGet Your Guide & Klook due to their flexible cancellation policies (saved us a lot of money trying to travel post-COVID) and price guarantees (often better prices than booking direct). We also book through Red Balloon on occasion for more unique Aussie and NZ activities.

Matt works sort-of full time running his digital marketing business, TerraMedia. In his spare time though, he loves to travel with his wife, so they usually end up doing a lot of it.
Home is Australia, and while they don’t spend all their time travelling the world, Matt and his wife like to take the time to really explore and get to know a place, even if that means spending a lot longer there than normal tourists might.
