GPRS Settings – Idea, Airtel, Vodafone, Aircel, T24, Uninor, BSNL, Loop

Sometimes we may find it difficult to connect mobile internet through GPRS or 3G. One of the reasons may be wrong  GPRS /3G settings. You can get GPRS/3G  settings by calling to your service providers’ call center or do it all by yourself manually. Now remember GPRS or 3G settings is all about one thing and that is Access Point Name (APN) and if you know APN of  your operator you will never face problem. APN is required to access internet via mobile or data card through your mobile connection . As most of the handsets are Android we are giving you details for GPRS /3G settings on Android based handsets. We are giving you an example of MTNL here and for other operators just change the APN  which are mentioned below.

2) Click on Wireless & Networks

4) Now from Options Menu choose “New APN’ ( alternatively you can edit changes in existing ones also)

5) Under Name Menu type ‘MTNL 3G’ ( you can write anything like MTNL GPRS or just MTNL )
