To activate gprs facility in your mobile phone, you have to contact the service provider (Aircell) of your mobile connection.
They will provide you with a link for downloading the gprs activation if your phone is in the general list.
And if your phone (made) is not in the list of mobile then they will guide you through a step by step process to activate the gprs manually. Good luck!
Hope this helps.

To be able to connect to the GPRS, you must have the following:
1. GPRS activated on your phone number. 2. Get and configure the settings on the phone. These settings include a) Port Setting and Port number, b) IP address and c) APN name. All these being service provider specific have to be obtained from the service provider. So, please contact them after the GPRS has been activated. rest of the settings are user dependent. And d) the dialing number which is generally *99# or on these lines also to be obtained from the service provider.
The service provider will also palm off the MMS to you. Do not accept as it is very expensive to use it, unless someone else is paying your bills.
To get GPRS/MMS setting, you need to contact your service
provider through phone or go directly to their office.
They will send you the settings for your model. You will
receive service settings in the special text message called as smart message.
Please save the settings to your phone and set it has default settings. Then
you can start using the GPRS/MMS in your phone.
