Dear Aircel and Airtel Friends,
Aircel now offers Pocket Internet via GPRS. Airtel offered this service long before. In order to access the internet through you aricel mobile you need to activate gprs on your mobile first. To activate from prepaid aircel mobile you have to send sms as GPRSACT to 2567. It will typically activated within a day. Once it is activated you can browse through your phones WAP/HTML browser.
To browse using your PC you have to connect your phone by serial data cable. You have install the phone modem using the CD provided by your phone manufacturer. For Nokia phone PC suite installation will done this.
Then go to control panel in windows. Open Network connections and click 'Create a new connection'. Follow the directions as prompted. You have to give blank user name and password. The dialup phone number is *99***1#
Congrats! You have finished your new connection. Open the connection and click dial. If you are lucky you will be connected to internet. Other wise you will get Error 734 or other errors.
I get 734 error the first time i connect to the internet with my motorola w388. I called up the customer support and the guy asked me several irrelevant questions like whether i activated the internet? whether i could browse through my phone?
I am a computer geek setting up several windows computers everyday. I know each nuke and corner of the windows networking and OSI Network Layers and other system internals. The guy, after several questions offered me solution by giving an extra initialization string that should be typed in modem properties page. I give it and dialed. To my surprise i was connected to the internet. But the initialization string had nothing to do with my connection. (I have give the string in another article).
Error 734: The PPP Link Control Protocol Was Terminated on aircel network was caused by aircel. Try again after some time. If you are able to browse through your phone you be connected via PC. If you get 'network down' or other errors on your phone you will get error 734 when you try with your PC. This is as simple as that.
