AirTel pre-paid GPRS Activation and usage

Update: AirTel has recently discontinued the SMS activation and deactivation service for GPRS/Mobile Office. You now need to call 56561, press 1 for English, press 1 to activate GPRS. It takes about 2 to 4 days to have GPRS activated, painfully slow. To deactivate GPRS or Mobile Office, call 56562, press 1 for English, press 1 to deactivate GPRS.

To activate, SMS “GPRSACT” to 511. AirTel will begin charging you Re 14.99/- per day. You will need to SMS “MO” (Mobile office?) to 501 for the precise settings for your phone (I did not get a response with settings as promised), or call their customer-service.

To deactivate, send “GPRSDEACT” to 511.

I also have a brief article on setting up your Nokia 6230 for AirTel’s Mobile Office.

AirTel LIVE! and GPRS are not the same. For AirTel LIVE, I suggest you start with the AirTel web portal and FAQ on AirTel LIVE by clicking here.

  64. Alex says:

    There is nothing f0r free. Airtel provided the GPRS and Mobile office from same server earlier now they have found the loophole and separated both servers. Now The Free Internet is no longer available.
    Also its too costly to use Net @ 8KBPS for 300/- per month.
    If somebody still find some loophole visit my Home page and send mail to me.

    I have been using this service for a long time but I am not happy with the speeds.
    I use a Nokia 6020.. and by default, the connection speed is 115kbps., though I can change it to 230kbps.
    but the actual speeds I get is very low… only 2-3 KBytes per sec during peak hours.. and when I am lucky.. it goes up to 7-10kBps.. but its very rare..
