I was using this Airtel Mobile Office connection that would take forever to load/connect. I called up the support people. As expected, they were of no use. It seems that Airtel has scraped the proxy (202.056.231.117). So, here are the new settings.
Basically you need to configure your GPRS with these settings. For Nokia users, SMSing MO to 543210 would be the easiest option. For other users, like Motorola and those cheap chinese mobiles, here are the settings.
For Motorola: Web Access –> Web Session –> Options –> New.
Name: Whatever you want
Homepage: Whatever you want (http://www.google.com or something)
Access Point Network (APN): airtelgprs.com
That’s it. Others settings are the default ones like:
Connection type: HTTP
Auth. Type: Normal
Data Bearer: Packet Data
Username: Leave Blank
Password: Leave Blank
Use preferred access point: No
