BSNL GPRS settings-Basic Things to Know Before

in GPRS

There are plenty of resources for BSNL related queries on the Internet.The primary reason being the lack of customer care support.Seems like BSNL is unable to handle such a large number of requests.
However being the largest Telecom Provider in India,it provides almost all services in the nation.Broadband has been provisioned in many parts of India but thousands of villages have still to get it.And there comes GPRS to the rescue.
Automatic configuration method has already been described.But if that fails to make your mobile able to access GPRS,you will need to feed manual settings.In the coming posts I will give manual settings,but before that it’s necessary to digest some jargon and methods.

BSNL sends four different settings when we send a message for automatic configuration.Here is an explanation for them-

BSNL Portal Settings

BSNL portal refers to WAP portal of BSNL i.e. wap.cellone.in.And this setting allows only this single portal to be available on the mobile.This has BSNL galaxy and other stuff like wallpaper,ring tone, animation, themes and videos etc. Browsing this is free but charge is levied when you download them.looks similar to figure below-

Cellone Portal

Cellone Portal

BSNL WAP settings
This WAP settings makes your mobile able to browse any wap enabled portal and other sites on the Internet

BSNL GPRS
This is the most important setting.This allows your mobile to browse any website on the Internet.Please note that WAP settings is also for browsing www sites ,but without this GPRS settings you will not be able to surf Internet on your PC/Laptop using your mobile as a modem.

BSNL MMS
Needs no explanation.Needed for MMS.

Update:
BSNL has changed Access points for many regions.It’s supposed that they are using a unified access point for all India regions.For example,the access point for northern region is no longer ‘gprsnorth.cellone.in’ bus it’s now “bsnlnet“.So kindly use the updated access points if you are unable to get GPRS by using the older access point.

Apart from these you will need to know the following

  • GPRS data-When needed or when available-depends on you,If you have an unlimited connection put it when available and “when needed” otherwise.
  • Access Points-Varies from BSNL region to region .For example
    North region GPRS access point is gprsnorth.cellone.in
    West region GPRS access point is gprswest.cellone. in

Following settings need to be entered for advanced configuration only.You may not need to enter these if simple settings can get you GPRS access.

  • Port no. for GPRS access
    port no— 8080 for wap 2.0 devices(Almost all new mobiles)
    and 9201, 9401 for wap 1.0 devices.
  • Proxy IP-
    10.132.194.196 (for BSNL north)
    192.168.81.163 (for BSNL East)
    10.100.3.2(for BSNL west)
    10.31.54.2(For BSNL South)

Keep all these details handy when you are going for manual GPRS configuration for your mobile and stay tunes for manual GPRS settings.
