    Question BB modem usage with AirTel

    Advertisement



    I have been thru all the instructions on how to use it as a modem. But, all in vain.

    Does anyone know how can one set BB up for modem purposes so that i can hook it up with my laptop?? My service provider is AirTel in India, and they are reluctant to release the setttings. Want me to spend more and subscribe to another data packagae.. which is ridiculous.

    But, its true that if i can tweak the settings then they cant do nothing as my data plan is of unlimited usage via any means... but how to do it? The APN for AirTel is airtelgprs.com, which i have came to know about through various forums and its corrrect. How to do the rest?

    Can some one pls help, i will really save a lot of money if i can do this??

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Hi I am yet another BB user from India on Airtel unlimited data plan with bis. seen your message. Thought you could help me. I was looking for the apn settings to make the opera mini browser work on my BB. I used airtelgprs.com as the apn with blank username and password but in vain.if you say that the settings are right is there anything I am missing. Airtel customer service is not very helpful.
    If you can help me It would be great.

    Thumbs up Re: BB modem usage with AirTel

    I downloaded Opera MINI last nite . I installed via DM.

    Post that, while doing network settings, it said it failed.

    So all i did is, i went to options>> advanced options>> TCP>>

    there i gave APN as airtelgprs.com
    leave username / pw blank >> Save

    put phone off , unplug battery n sim for 10 seconds... reboot n voila.. i m surfing flawlessly since then

    hope it helps.. or otherwise feel free to PIN me

    Goto your laptop->control panel->phone and modem options. Click on std modem->properties->advanced and enter the follwing in the extra initialization parameters:
    AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","airtelgprs.com",<cr>.
    hit ok and you should be good to go.
