      Gionee P2 requires no manual internet configuration. Make sure your data is turned on and that you are within connectivity reach and that you have an active subscription or credit on your mobile.

    I learnt from a Tecno agent that it should be coming up this May. But as we stated in the main post, we can’t give a precise info on this product until it is released.
