Airtel GPRS configurations for Chinese mobile phones

October 2016

Chinese mobile phones are gaining in popularity due to their low cost and extensive set of telephony features offered. Users may, however, face GPRS configuration issues with Chinese mobile phones. Often service providers may not be able to provide the configuration settings for GPRS. Although GPRS may be activated through service providers such as Airtel and BSNL, the GPRS configuration settings for Chinese mobile phones may be difficult to obtain. In order to use the internet or GPRS services from the Chinese mobile phones, changes in the configuration of the GPRS settings and user accounts have to be made.


Please provide GPRS Configuration Settings for Chinese mobile phones No: Chang Jiang A969.
I have purchased Both BSNL and Airtel SIM. I have received a message to tell me that GPRS has been activated. But I have not got the configuration settings from the service providers. Please send me the configuration settings for both Airtel and BSNL connections.


Follow these instructions:
  • Go to "services" -> Data Account -> GPRS.
  • Empty the account (like Account 8).
  • Edit the account as following.
    • 1. Account name: MOBILE OFFICE
    • 2. APN:
    • 3. User name
    • 4. Password
    • 5. Auth. type: Normal

These are the required account settings. Click "done", then save.
