Aircel GPRS plans- Unlimited browsing for only Rs.98/month

Compare Airtel and Aircel and someone would immediately say what crap? Airtel is the leader in mobile network in India and I’ve only heard about Aircel recently.

Well, I’ll not be surprised when someone says that but, I have something to tell you.

Small players such as Aircel are Big players in one field and that is the mobile Internet. Plans of Airtel come no where closer to that of Aircel. You may have seen the advertisements of Dhoni saying he keeps in touch with his friends whether he is playing cricket or not using the Aircel Pocket Internet?

Did you ever bother to look for details online after seeing that Ad?

If not here are the details. The Aircel Pocket Internet Unlimited plan costs only Rs.98 for 30 days. Browsing  is unlimited and the download charges are applicable depending on the product you download (like songs, ringtones, themes etc). What’s more, you can also use this plan to surf the Internet on your Desktop/Laptop. Just use a data card/USB or get a Bluetooth Dongle. But don’t come and scream here seeing the speed.

There’s also another plan at only Rs.14 which is also an Unlimited Browsing plan but only for 3 days. Prepaid customers can get GRPS by sending an SAircel-pocket-internetMS; WAP to 121 and save the configuration message as default settings. But the charges for this default pay as you go is really bad; 10p for 10kb of browsing. What’s worse, you are even charged for browsing the Aircel portal.

Airtels’ charges of 30p for 50kb download seem to be better in case of prepaid connections.

Before you go out to buy the post paid unlimited browsing pack, let me say that this is only a limited period introductory offer and no one knows except Aircel when the price gets additional wings.

Update 2013: Aircel has persisted with low 2G data rates when almost every other network has increased their rates. For Rs.47 recharge, one will get 1GB data. For Rs.97 recharge, 1GB of 2G data and 300MB of 3G data (where there is no 3G network, this will be in 2G speeds as well) for 28 days. The truly unlimited 2G data plan for Rs.251 still exists with 90 days validity.

  45. ts easy and good experience to use aircel internet ota in andhra.

    from last four years i was using airtel internet for my computer in bangalore.
    but when i came back andhra last year, i felt bad for not having proper net connection on ota mobile.

    but on a fine day i dared and tested the net speed of aircel on my desktop, i satisfied and next morning i purchased a new acer 5542 laptop.
    and from then i am using aircel number only for internet continously.
    even i have downloaded { windows 7 full software 2.5 gb in three days } on mobile internet.
    even xp -srvice pack -3, and movies, and so many.

    i love aircel net.

    in middle i used tata docomo internet for a test 15 days, ( in 15 days my system crashed 3 times,formatte 5 times, because of unsecured firewall settings of their servers or malicious worms, and frequent dissconections ).

    but docomo seems little okay i tested now recently for a period of three days. and i felt not bad.

    airtel their usage limmit is too bad wat they think themselve for stiking 2 gb only.

    round to total minimum my downloading it self more than 10-12 gb.

    i will download only by net, like, age of empire – iii – 600 mb
    photo shop, auto-cad, and many more by aircel net only.

    i am much thankfull for aircel network.

  46. bhut hi bekar h yaaro…..only mentally disturbance …..from it ..very very bad service.

  47. Hi,

    For the past two months, I am using Aircel internet plan…. Cost wise i felt it was Ok…. But, Browsing wise…. It’s speed is not pair…. I am using N73 with PC Suite…. Because of its speed, I cannot even open some software…. So, I request Aircel to increase their speed…. Only the thing, why i am using Aircel is their unlimited plan…. but, I am damn sure that you have to so much time in front of system, to open one website….

  51. i also use aircel pocket internet in my pc but the download speed is very slow. give me the reason…………

    • use Nokia mobile phone or sony ericsson and connect via data cable with pcsuite. you will get minimum downloading speed up to 25 kpbs. i am using nokia N73 handset and experienced sony ericsson K550i, it has minimum 15 to 25 kpbs downloading speed.And i tried with airtel and vodafone but they only have 6kpbs downloading speed.So i think Aircel has Highclass EDGE network than others.one thing is sure apart from nokia or sony ericsson no other handset gets such speed, i don’t know about Motorola. anyway must use pcsuite.moreover 15 to 25 kpbs is good speed compare to RS 98 and 14 plan. Some times i may not get such speed in internet cafe. so i am stick on aircel and nokia n73 or K550i usb phone modem.note all new nokia and sony ericsson EDGE enabled handset can get such speed for sure.USE PCSUITE WHILE CONNECT.

    • I had used Rs.98/- Pocket Internet on N72 Mobile but the speed is verry low kindly
      Improve the speed.

    • If Any one would tell what is aircel setting for roaming cause iam getting as vodafone in aircel or Idea in aircel how to connect net with the support of other network.what is setting for it?? using aircel.

  71. i have blackberry 8700 not supported for aircel internet ,. what i have to do. 121 does not support gives message ota not supported . help me

    • There is a procedure to obtain GPRS setting from Aircel. Let me outline the same for Sony Ericson C510 handset.

      1) send the following SMS message:
      GPRS BP SON C510 to 57788 (where SON refers the three letter of manufacture)
      2) After receiving a reply from Aircel, you should send second SMS message:
      YESBP to 57788
      3) You will receive two messages from Aircel, and the second message will carry GPRS setting which will be installed automatically, when you select “save”.
      4) Activate 98-plan by visiting an Aircel outlet or through Aircel website by paying with Credit/Debit card. The following is the Aircel website:
      ‘http://www.aircel.com/’
      5) Now you can Browse on internet unlimited for 30 days.
      6) Without activating 98-plan, you can still access internet with charges on usage: 10 paise/10KB
      7) 57788 number is a toll free, so no charges for SMS.

      But this standard procedure does not work always with Aircel. Except for some Nokia model, for any other manufacture/model, you will always get a reply that “Your mobile is not supported by Aircel”. I too received the same message from Aircel.
      You immediately contact Aircel support personal over toll-free number 198 and you will get a service ticket number. Aircel will release GPRS setting for your specific Mobile phone model within 48 hours. But with repeated contact and pestering, you will get the GPRS setting in a couple of hours! In fact I did it!!

      Good Luck!

Then wht the use to go for their product which misguide their valuable customer. They have very poor connectivity also.

  81. I m using MICROMAX Q5 fb with AIRCEL POCKET INTERNET BUT when i download anything it shows FILE FETCHING ERROR, Plz advise me.

  82. I am using Micromax Q3 moblie phone. Plz provide GPRS setting for my phone.

  83. Hey, im using Aircel (98 unlimited) plan n its been 6 months.
    Let me tell u what Aircel give u, in compare to Airtel’s newly launched 98 unlimted plan.

    1. Its truly “Unlimited” unlike Airtel’s, where usage upto 2GB only are free. I’v downloaded upto 7GB in a single month on my phone (yes, u heard me right, around 10 movies, thanks to systorrent for mobile) n still it works fine.

    2. Its free in Roaming, unlike Airtel where u can enjoy free usage only within Home network.

    The only issues with Aircel is, its still in developing stage, thats wy u may not find Aircel Network in evry corner of India.

    • One more thng to add,
      i’v used Aircel plan on Nokia E50 n N97, even connected it to my pc/lappy.
      So no issue with setting.
      Plus network is strong enough in Delhi/NCR.

    • FYI, Roaming is free in any network when it comes to Data services and it is the case with Airtel too.
      I’ve used my AP based Airtel Sim with Rs.98 plan in Delhi, WB without any issue.

      And how did you download 7GB on a GPRS network?
      Surely, that should have taken at least 1 full day to complete a movie download and emptied your battery at least 10 times.

      I thought 2GB itself was plenty for mobiles. I hardly cross 200MB each month. For download purposes you should instead use your broadband.

      • You can put your mobile ALWAYS on charger and do the downloading though bluetooth . Even with USB cable connection, the mobile will be always under charging state because one of USB pin supplies power to mobile from Laptop. So no issues and you can download any big file on aircel-GPRS connection.

        Surprisingly the connection is as stable as a rock!

    • can we download song and software with 98 plan by connecting mobile to pc ? it should we charged?

    • maybe u have not closed ur computer for a month………..and thats de reason ur able to download 7gb……..

  84. can u give me more information about Aircel GPRS plan- Unlimited browsing Rs.98

    • hiii m pawan m allrdy use aircel internet bt nt btr aircel net speed is very slow just do not wrk.. so plz dnt try net plz

  85. can i use it on nokia 5130 express music

  86. Please give us the sugession for to inatalling the aircel net connection with samsung SGHL700 through pocket internet on my pc. The problem is that to when I come to the step at select the country, then default Airtel, Idea, BPL & Hutch VPN are appears only. Aircel not to be find.

    • The place where it require the operator’s name u skip to mannual settings.Then at the first box type without space aircelgprs and click next,and its done.

  87. Does AIRCEL have any unlimited downloading plans at below 100/-??????
    Please do reply me at the e mail id given above.(ie.arjunmonkuttan@gmail.com)

  88. I am able to explore Google, however unable to explore Yahoomail & Gmail

    • Exploring Google means that you are surfing on internet, but for accessing Yahoo and Google mails, you need to configure your mobile. Let me help you on this. I have used settings for Sony Ericsson C510 mobile phone, as an example in my reply. For other mobile models similar functionality should be available and you can easily locate them!

      1) From main menu go to Messages and select Email
      2) From Email select Settings
      3) Settings option normally will have tabs, and you first select General Tab.
      Set your name as “Your Name”
      Set your email ID as “Email Address”
      Set a message alert sound under “Email alert”
      Set ON as “Show as a new Event”
      Set signature information as “Signature”
      Set an account name as “Account Name”

      4) Then select POP tab. What POP does is to retrieve mails from your mail box and nothing else. This is always one way i.e. it fetches mails from mail box. So instead of POP, let us configure with IMAP which not only fetches mails but also capable of transmitting mails too.
      IMAP is a superior protocol than POP.

      Set IMAP4 as “Connection Type”
      Set imap.gmail.com as “Server address”
      Set your emailID as “User name”
      Set password as “Password”
      Set SSL as “Encryption”
      Set 993 as “Port”
      Set Aircel-GPRS as “Connect Using”
      5) Next select SMTP tab. This is “Simple Mail Transfer Protocol” which transmits emails across network. This should be configured as follows:

      Set smtp.gmail.com as “Server Address”
      Set “Same as IMAP4” as “SMTP authentication”
      set SSL as Encryption
      set 587 as port
      set Aircel-GPRS as “Connect Using”

      With this configuration you can access all your Google Mails. For automatic download of emails, under email settings, there is a tab “download” under which there will be an option “Check intervel” whose values can be set as 5 min, 10 min, 30 min, 1 hr, 1 day and so on. If you select a value of 5 min, then for every 5 minutes once, your mobile’s IMAP4 Protocol visits gmail box and checks for any new mail arrival and if found, then will automatically download to your mobile. What ever action done from the mobile by you on the mail-conversation will be immediately reflected in Gmail box. Remember your mobile is now acting as a client to Google mail Server!

      Next question is how to access Yahoo mails ALSO from the same mobile which has already been configured for Google mail access. I will answer this question once you have successfully established and start receiving emails from your Google mail account. I shall keep visiting this forum site.

      Final Tip!!
      The following site provides Google mail mobile client.
      ‘http://www.findtoyou.com/mobile-software/download-c510-134181.html’
      You can download this file to your laptop and then upload to your mobile from laptop through Bluetooth or USB. Install this Java client software either in Games or Application folder of your mobile. You can browse your mails using this gmail mobile client very easily

      Good Luck!

      • Let me fine tune certain points of accessing mails from a mobile phone using the following two modes:
        – native phone mode
        – java client (J2ME application) mode

        What is native phone mode?
        This mode is exactly like Microsoft’s Outlook Express which downloads an exact copy of a mail from the mail server. You can store the mails either on Phone memory or on Card Memory and whatever operations done on these mails will NOT be reflected on your mail box at mail Server. This mode is factory set by all Mobile Phone manufactures who support email. The advantage is even in the absence of internet connectivity, you can still access your mails! This mode supports automatic detection and downloading of mails from your Mail Box.

        What is java client mode (J2ME application)?
        These clients are provided by various Mail Service Providers such as Google, Yahoo, etc. You can download the .jar files and install on your mobile phone either in Application or Games folders. In this mode whatever operation you do on the mails will be directly reflecting on your mail box at Mail Server. This mode is highly user friendly and does almost all operations like its big brothers Gmail or Yahoo clients do on your laptop!

        You can avail both modes on your mobile concurrently.

  89. Can i use it on Nokia 6610i?

  90. aircel’s major prob is it gets self disconnected and then the packet data “E” or “G” sign dissapers.and no use registering a complaint it will not be solved.this is happening at cuttack,bhubaneshwar and sundargarh in orissa where i have used it.it is a technical glitch the network has.

  91. what if i want to download games from other websites like mobile9.com, will i be charged for it?

    Also i want to know whether this rs 98 plan is available for prepaid mobile users.

    thanks in advance.

    • “what if i want to download games from other websites like mobile9.com (with 98 card installed), will i be charged for it?”
      please somebody reply this, I am curious 🙂

      • im using aircel net since 8 months…its very gud service at such a low cost…for downloading free any applications,games just go to mobango.com

      • 98-plan offered by Aircel is just wireless internet connectivity over mobile phone. If you want to download something (whether ringtones or games or whatever), you can go ahead and download as long as that download site offers it free of charge and therefore it is nothing to do with 98-plan.

        Suppose I download a song form a website who charges $1.25 for that album. Then I should use my credit card and then I can download. This procedure is same whether I have narrow band or broadband internet connectivity. Or my connectivity is wireless or on wire, does not matter.

  92. aircel net erratet me it alwas disconnect

  93. Hw much max.speed aircel give me while i connect it 2 my laptop..

    • Download speed is the most important factor especially for dial-up connection with Laptop over mobile phone. This depends up on lot of factors and let us explore one by one.

      1) Both bluetooth and USB connections offer same speed, so no issue.
      2) Use Branded handsets such as Sony-ericsson, Nokia, etc which offer better modem capabilities and also provides updates for driver/modem (obtainable from website).
      3) Make sure that Laptop is not virus infected.
      4) Make sure that laptop has enough free RAM space, otherwise upgrade RAM.
      5) Firewall software, anti-spam mail detecting or mail monitoring anti-virus software installed on laptop might slow down internet activity.
      6) Clean up laptop system periodically using “Register Easy” or “Registry Mechanic” clean up tools which are capable of optimizing and tuning up even internet settings.
      7) There are tools such as “SpeedConnect Internet Accelerator” who claims to improve dial-up connection speed, but I never tested it because that feature alone is not freeware!
      8) Clean up cookies, caches, etc of your Mobile phone periodically. Aircel support personal often claim that this is one of root cause of slow speeds.

      How to cleanup cookies etc. at your mobile phone?
      Menu -> Internet -> Options -> Advanced -> goto OTHERS tab, there you will see cookies etc. and just clean them up.

      My laptop configuration:
      I have AVG freeware anti-virus and ZoneAlarm firewall installed. The Avast! anti-virus gave speed troubles, so I just uninstalled it. I use all the time Bluetooth for modem connection and always keep my mobile under charger. My laptop has 1 GB RAM, 1.8 GHZ processor and Window-XP home edition with service pack 3.

      So with the above configuration I get a download speed between 10 Kbps and 32 Kbps.
      At present I don’t think any other ISP can match Aircel speed.

      In my area I get EDGE based Aircel signal. But if you don’t get this speed, check for nature of Aircel signal whether EDGE or GPRS, just look at your mobile at top-left corner and check for the letter “E” or “G”, use a Magnifier if you have weak eyes.
      (in fact I do use!)

      Good Luck to improve speed!

      • I just missed just one important point. i.e. spywares.

        Spywares are major source of annoyance to internet throughput. Not only internet but also eats up precious RAM. Spywares occupies your system at start-up as an innocuous program, so it is mandatory to have a watch on the list of start-up programs.

        How to find out a list of all start-up program on your Laptop?

        Start -> Run -> type “msconfig” and press OK button.

        This “msconfig” brings up a window and you select “start up” tab which will lists all the start-up programs of your system. A thorough inspection is required to locate the spywares/adwares and if you find one then immediately disable it and then run proven anti-spyware programs such as ‘spyware doctor”, etc., to cleanup the system. Also install good anti-virus tools which prevents spywares from entering into system.

        So whenever windows starting takes up unusually longer time, then you have all the liberty to suspect for the presence of some spyware/adware!

      • Hey bro all above of your comments are true i prefer with you good luck further…

  94. Dialing number is *99***1# Password and Username – Blank. If you use Samsung PC Studio or Nokia PC Studio Select the country as “Other”. Else simply establish a new dial-up account on your computer. Cheers!

  95. Aircel Gives me Great Surfing Speeds on My Nokia 2700 Classic Mobile and On my Computer. Just it’s time to Move with Aircel

  96. sir,
    i want to know about ur 98 plan and want to connect to my pc…….

  97. Oh.. Come on Sriraj, don’t be biased. I agree that comparitively Airtel is big player than Aircel. Let me tell you, Aircel rules the whole Tamilnadu State with its fantastic network coverage and awesome offers.

    I’ve been using Aircel’s Unlimited Internet since nearly 7 months. And I scream “It’s a fantastic thing”. The speed is absolutely flabbergasting. I’ve had no issues with using it on computer either. It works absolutely flawless.

    Way to Go Aircel!

    PS- I’m posting this feed from my Aircel phone 😉

    • I’m a great fan of Airtel – No regrets for it what so ever.
      And I’m afraid, that lead of Aircel in mobile Internet won’t last long as Airtel entered the fray with its latest Rs.98/month GPRS plan that gives 2GB of free data.
      Aircel rules Tamilnadu, I know that. But Airtel rules India.

      • It is not a question of you like Airtel or Aircel, but it is a question of who provides better plan and service. Right now, for GPRS mobile internet only Aircel provides unlimited 98-plan and nobody else. Not only unlimited plan, but also support for successful installation of GPRS on mobile device as well as a modem connection to a Laptop ( or PC). I had problems with Aircel support initially (due to inadequate knowledge on the part of Aircel support personals) but I somehow caught hold of some knowledgeable support techie on their 198 toll free support line and resolved all issues successfully. Generally Aircel resolves issues within 48 hours….

        Next important issue is Download speed. Right now I am getting 10 Kbps to 32 Kbps and I always connect my mobile as Modem with my Laptop through Bluetooth . In my area I get EDGE enable Aircel signal. If you don’t have EDGE signal, you won’t get this speed.

        If some other ISP provide a better plan, support and download speed than Aircel, I would not hesitate to switch over to! I want the best returns for the money spent!!

        • Is Aircel’s Unlimited Internet your only gateway to the Internet?
          I mean, you don’t have any Broadband plan, Dial up, cable, DSL/ADSL etc?
          If you don’t, I’m surprised at the fact that you are able to bear 10-32kbps speeds on a ‘laptop’.
          I have a 2Mbps Airtel BB at home set up over a Wifi network and I always thought Mobile Internet plans are only meant for mobile and not to connect to laptop, except for any emergency.
          As far as EDGE and GPRS go, I never saw a G symbol on my mobile (Airtel), it is always E, no matter where I go, AP, WB, Delhi, Maharashtra et all.

          • Yes, Aircel-GPRS is my only gateway to internet. Basically, I never owned a mobile phone and I never thought I will. But once I came to know about Aircel’s 98-unlimited plan couple of months back, I decided to purchase a mobile phone only for internet purpose and I went for Sony-Ericsson C510 which offers better modem functionality and also has a cyber shot camera.
            I have a laptop (hp Compaq presario notebook) but without internet connectivity. Now I have configured my laptop with wireless dial-up internet connectivity with Sony C510 mobile phone as modem!

            Your next question is why not broadband. This is a question of requirement. I am not using internet for any production purpose but using to visit few websites which provides information on Occult sciences (Astrology, palmistry, Religion, Tantric, etc) so I think wireless dial-up modem connection will be more than adequate for me. So no complaint on download speed (10 to 32 Kbps). Earlier, I used to visit Cyber cafe’s and browse at the cost of Rs 20 per hour.
            Now I own an internet connection! I am happy!!

            I think mobile internet is like a mini “atom bomb” and you can do wonders with it by just paying Rs 98 per 30 days unlimited.

            I think you might have visited big cities around India where the signal coverage will be mostly “E”. But in rural and villages, the coverage is still “G”. However this is slowly changing. I got this information from an Aircel support personal.

            I am looking form similar plans (unlimited wireless dial-up) from other ISP players with better download speeds!

  98. why no network in supaul dist of triveniganj block in bihar

  99. Dear sie, i want to use unlimited internet in aircel services in andhra pradesh, kadapa District. please give me guide lines to use with 98/- plan.

  100. Dear Sir,

    May I use this internet facility with using mobile in my laptop or not.

    Please advise and guide me.

    Thanks.

    • Yes, you can definitely set your internet-enabled Mobile phone as a modem to your laptop/PC through USB or Bluetooth to access internet.
      For this, contact Aircel support center through their toll-free number 198.

      However let me help you through this! Before proceeding, please make sure you have already got your internet settings configured properly on your mobile phone.

      1) From Main menu, select Settings.
      2) From settings go to Connectivity tab and select “Internet Settings”
      3) From ‘Internet settings’ select “Connect Using” option whose value should be “Aircel-GPRS”
      3) You should see many ISP Data Accounts such as Airtel, Docomo, etc. along with “Pocket Internet” and “Aircel-GPRS”. The later two are provided by Aircel.
      4) Highlight cursor on “Aircel-GPRS” data account and select “options”
      5) Under options, select “view” and you should see the following:

      Name: Aircel-GPRS
      External ID: 5 (this field can carry values between 1 to 14)
      APN: aircelgprs.pr (“.pr” means prepaid, the other one is “.po” which means postpaid)
      Username:
      Password:
      Login request: off
      IP address:
      DNS address:
      Authentication:
      NONE
      CHAP
      PAP
      Data Compression: off
      Header compr: off
      Proxy Settings: off,
      Multiple

      The above confirms that your mobile is internet enabled for Aircel-GPRS.

      How to Connect Mobile phone to your Laptop as a dial-up modem to Aircel Network:

      1) Bluetooth connection:
      Make sure that Mobile Bluetooth is configured and networked wireless with your computer. Make sure that the Laptop Bluetooth is on and running. To test, just transmit a file or a message from laptop to mobile and see it is working. This will ensure that bluetooth’s availability both at mobile and laptop.

      Next ensure that bluetooth Modem is installed on your computer. If not, then from your “start up and reference guide” of your laptop, found out the maker of bluetooth and download the driver and modem from their website and install on your Laptop. Make sure that you are downloading the latest version.

      How to make sure that your laptop is installed with a Bluetooth modem?
      From your laptop, Start menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Information -> Components -> Modem.

      When you select “Modem”, you will see all the modems installed on your laptop and find out any bluetooth modem installed. If you don’t find one, then you should go ahead and install one.

      Once your laptop is equipped with required bluetooth driver and modem, next step is establishing a dial-up bluetooth connection with Aircel network though Mobile phone.

      Star menu -> Control Panel > Network Connections -> Create a new connection

      This will lead to “New Connection Wizard” windows user interface.
      a) Select “Next” button and you will see four options and select the first option “Connect to Internet”. Press “Next” button
      b) The next screen will show three options and select second option “Set up connection manually” and press “Next” button.
      c) Next screen will be having three options and select first one “Connect using dial-up modem and press “Next” button
      d) The next screen will list the modems and select appropriate “Bluetooth modem” and press NEXT button
      e) Next screen shows the name of ISP provider and you can type either “aircel-GPRS” or more appropriately as “BluetoothConnection” and press NEXT button
      f) Next screen shows the dial-up number and you just enter “*99***1#” and press Next Button
      g) The next screen is “internet account information” which consists of five fields.
      Leave the first three fields viz., “User name”, “Password”, “Confirm Password” empty. Just don’t touch them. The fourth field is box, and select (tick) it. The fifth field should remain deselected (if it is ticked already, just deselect and leave that box empty.
      e) Press next button and in the next screen press “Finish” button.
      f) You will see Dial interface windows screen. You will see “user name” and “password” fields empty. So it be.
      g) Next, select (tick) the box field “Save this user name and password for the following users”. The next will be bullet marks to select “Me only” or “Anyone who uses this computer”. You can select the second option.

      With this your bluetooth connection setting is over. There is “Properties” button which helps to see all your connection and internet configurations and you need expertise to handle and alter them.

      If you press “Dial” button then if every thing is correct, it should connect to Aircel network immediately and you should able to browse and surf on internet.

      2) USB connection.

      To connect mobile phone with laptop through USB cable and to make the mobile phone to work as modem, you should have already installed required USB modem. Please check your laptop is installed with mobile phone’s USB modems. This checking procedure is to be followed exactly like for bluetooth as given in section (1) above.
      If not installed, then download “PC Suite” software appropriate to your phone model and install in your Laptop. This installation automatically install the required drivers and modems. After this create “a network connection” object as outlined in section (1). Only exception is choose correct USB modem (step “e”). At step “f”, type a name such as “USBconnection”

      After creating network connection object, the can press “Dial” button to connect Laptop to Aircel network using USB through Mobile phone and surf on internet.

      3) You can also create the network connection objects through PC Suite software as well as through Bluetooth interface software.But fundamental procedure is the same.

      Good Luck!
