Rain APN Settings for Android, Iphone and Router

APN stands for Access Point Name; thus, Rain APN settings contain information needed to facilitate internet browsing on any device. Rain APN settings enable any device connected to the Rain network to browse the internet. But before you can swiftly make data connections through your device, you have to ensure that you have activated your Rain SIM card and equally purchased a data plan. That said, here are Rain’s APN settings for router, iPhone, and Android devices.

APN Settings for Rain

Although Rain internet settings are usually retrieved automatically, there are a few occasions where the settings are not automatically configured. In such a situation, you must input the APN settings manually. However, you need to make sure that you configure on your device the correct APN settings specific to the Rain network for it to make internet connections. The default Rain APN settings are:

  • APN name: rain
  • Username: leave it blank
  • Password: leave it blank

Note: For default Rain internet settings, after inputting the Access Point Name as rain, all other settings can be left blank.
