While going through Uninor GPRS Settings for Mobile, we discussed that GPRS enabled Mobile Phones automatically receive GPRS settings when an active SIM Card is inserted in it. But it is kinda service dependent feature and with some Networks, you do not receive automatic GPRS Settings sometimes – or it could be due to a handset which has WAP but is not completely a GPRS / EDGE / 3G enabled Handset.

I recently experienced the first case with BSNL GPRS settings which do not arrive automatically sometimes, even on a fully Internet ready handset like Nokia 2700C. I tried it to get the settings through their service messages and Customer Care, but nothing worked actually. Then, I manually configured BSNL GPRS Settings with the help of my friend, who was also using BSNL Prepaid.

How to receive BSNL GPRS settings through SMS – send and sms with text GPRS to 53733 (toll free) from your BSNL Prepaid mobile number. If this doesn’t works for you, visit Cellone.in and download the settings from there. Or configure BSNL GPRS Settings manually as mentioned below in this post.

Ignore the options that you can’t see on your phone. Try changing Port Adress from 8080 to 9401, in case if these GPRS settings for BSNL don’t work. Also make sure you have activated GPRS on your BSNL connection before using these GPRS settings on your handset. You should also see GPRS Settings for more Carriers.
