    I just switched from Nokia to Android.
    But am unable to get the NOP set properly in my samsung phone event after three calls to Airtel customer care.

    1. I activated the monthly airtel plan from my phone by dialling *567#.I got SMS stating that my handset doesnt support GPRS settings.Add as APN.I cheked the APN from my “mobile Network Settings” menu and found that the APN is turned on.

    still i couldnt connect to any web addresss.

    2. I called to customer care and he guided me to add a APN( to my mobile.Even after restart i could not connect to internet.

    3. I sent a SMS typing “MO” to 54321 to dowload the APN settings.
    I got the deatils ( .and set it accordingly.still couldnt connect to net.

    i have activated airtel gprs 98 pack in my new android. customer care executive told me that i will be getting 3g data transfer if i am under 3g tower, is it true ? else how do i activate 3g ?

  6. Soham says:

    Okay, I’ve got a slightly weird problem. I installed this app called Easy Battery Saver on my Note. And based on its algorithm, it restricts continuous access to data networks to conserve battery. So inspite of activating 3g services on my phone, I wasn’t being able to use it as per will. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it won’t. And whenever it worked, the speeds were almost as poor as gprs. So I tried resetting the APN settings and I also tried resetting mobile networks through an option in the app itself. NO effect. I further tried uninstalling the app, yet no effect. I even tried a factor reset on my phone, but still the 3g won’t go back to the way it was. Earlier I could easily find the speed touching around 200 kbps, now if it works at all, its very slow, gprs speeds as I mentioned, and I have ensured that my phone is not set to working on gsm alone or something like that, I can even see the ‘3g’ or H+’ symbol in the notification area and yet there is no continuous and convenient connectivity. Any clue as to what else I could try to fix this?

    Hey Richie,

    I followed this advice before and it worked very well. But all of a sudden my internet has shut off and all I see in the notifications bar is the signal bars. The symbol that showed the e for edge is not longer there. Is there a fix for this problem? I’ve already tried restarting the phone but that didn’t work. Please let me know as soon as possible because I can’t live without my internet on my phone.
