SOURCE: How can I use Airtel GPRS on Blacberry 8520

Guzzle, Yes, you are correct in assuming that the schemes for BB are expensive. And all are available to you much cheaper in GPRS schemes. The settings would be sent to you immediately after the service of GPRS is activated on your number. If not then you can dial MO to 121, free. You will receive an sms asking you to save the sms. Save it and the settings are configured. BUT remember to delete the MMS and Airtel Live from your phone settings as they are really expensive to use. GPRS is cheap. And advantage in Airtel is that there are no roaming charges on data access. Means that you can access the net from anywhere in the country free if you have an unlimited usage plan. However, the settings are as under, IP address - 202.56.231.117 Proxyport settings - enable Proxy port number - 8080 APN - airtelgprs.com. You give it the name of Mobile Office. And you can have any home page.

I have a new bb 8830 world edition phone on a Vodafone GSM network. I have requested for the bb service to be activated. Which the service provder has. Unfortunately, the settings are not received by my BB...


Looks like you just change your original sim card with other network sim card. You must unlock your blackberry first before you can using other network in your phone. What you need is blackberry 8830 unlock code from your original phone network sim card. You can get blackberry unlock code from network provider or buy from third party sites which have lower cost rather than network provider.

How do i send a voice memo with my blackberry 8830?


The BlackBerry 8830 smart phone, and other BlackBerry phones, come with an application to record voice memos called "Voice Notes Recorder." From this application you can create, store and send voice memos directly from your phone. You do not need to upload the memo on the computer or send it through email (unless the recipient cannot receive multimedia messages).<span><br /></span><br /> <span> <span>Instructions</span> <ol> <li><span>Open "Voice Notes Recorder" on your phone.</span></li> <li><span></span><span>Press the trackball to record the voice memo. Press it again to stop recording.</span></li> <li><span></span><span>Scroll to and select the mail icon while the memo is stopped.</span></li> <li><span></span><span>Select "Send as MMS."</span></li> <li><span></span><span>Choose the contact from the list, or choose "Use Once" and type the phone number of the recipient.</span></li> <li><span></span><span>Add a note to the message if you wish.</span></li> <li><span></span><span>Press the "Menu" button and select "Send" to send the voice memo and message.</span></li></ol></span>

Whenever my friend tries to make a call on his BB8520 it displays "call failed". How can this be fixed? He got the phone from his service provider


Can the BB receive calls ok? If not, is the sim activated and the mobile network switched to ON on the phone (GPRS/EDGE) should be displayed next to some signal bars at the top right of the screen. If they are both ok, try a battery pull, if that doesnt work try the phone in a different area to see if they get any success. Normally this messge does point to a network issue

What are the gprs settings for airtel if used for samsung omnia pro b7320


GPRS settings usually are default.When your phone synchronises with the network, it also synchronises the GPRS settings. Incase you are facing some sort of difficulty, call up the airtel customer service and ask them to activate your GPRS.They'll do so by sending you a service message that you have to accept.The service msg synchronises your GPRS.That's about it.

Airtel GPRS ACTIVATE?


Dear friends, before I begin with the details of Airtel Live, I wish to thank everyone at XDA-Developers for working on ROMs, fixes and the support that is being provided here.

Special thanks to dsixda for producing Onyx 3.0 because of which my HTC Touch Elfin (P3452) rocks even more.

Now regarding Airtel Live service: Airtel Live is free GPRS service that Airtel provides to its customer with a catch i.e. as per Airtel, you can only access http://live.airtelworld.com for downloading latest ringtones, games, wallpapers, videos etc.

If you call Airtel Customer Support to get Live on your HTC Touch, they tell you that it is not supported on any Windows Mobile phone and suggest you to go for Airtel Mobile office, full GPRS service for a monthly rental of Rs. 499 (USD 12).

After googling and fighting with Airtel, I managed to get the correct settings and I am able to run Airtel Live as well access most of the websites on standard HTTP protocol (SSL is not supported). Google Maps also works for me.

On Windows Mobile 6.x, the steps to configure are as follows:

1. Activate Airtel Live by sending the following SMS to 121: MASALA ACTIVE.
2. The service takes atleast 3-4 hours to get active. Restart the phone and resume configuring.
3. Tap Start -> Settings.
4. Select Connections Tab and tap Connections.
5. Select Advanced Tab, tap Select Networks button to bring up Network Management.
6. Under "Programs that automatically connect to the Internet should connect using:" drop down, tap the New button.
7. In the General Tab, type the name of the settings as Airtel Live
8. Select Modem tab, tap New...
9. Type the name of connection as Airtel Live, select the modem as Cellular Line (GPRS) and tap Next.
10. Type Access Point Name as airtelfun.com and tap next.
11. Leave username, password and domain blank and tap finish.
12. Select Proxy Settings tab. Tap "This network connects to the Internet". This should enable the next check box option.
13. Tap "This network uses a proxy server to connect to the Internet".
14. Type the proxy server as: 100.1.200.99 and then tap Advanced...
15. Tap HTTP, leave the server as 100.1.200.99 and change the port to 8080
16. Similarly tap WAP, Secure WAP and Socks, type the server as 100.1.200.99 but leave the port to defaults. These are optional settings.
17. Tap OK to close the Advanced proxy setup screen.
18. Tap OK to close the New connection screen.
19. The network management screen should now list the new connection you have created in the drop-down. Tap OK to close this screen
20. Tap OK to close the connection screen.

Now you are ready to fire your favourite browser. I have tested this on PIE as well as Opera 9.5 and it works for me.

If PIE reports "Request not authorized by the WAP Gateway", you will need to change the user-agent to anything you can think of using "Advanced Config" tool (thanks to dsixda for suggesting this). I had set it to HTCP3452_Mozilla/4.0 under Advanced Config -> Internet Explorer -> User Agent Custom Base.

I think Airtel has intentionally blocked Mozilla/4.0 user-agent on WM phones. It may be that they cannot restrict Windows Mobile based phones from accessing websites on standard HTTP. On other phones I had tried, I could not get other sites to work with the same settings.

Enjoy Airtel Live for free. quote.gif
