Airtel GPRS for ASUS,HTC, Pocket PC-Proxy settings

Best Pocket PC Free apps downloads 
I am totally frustrated with answers from Airtel customer care for my question-" How to use Internet on my ASUS P320 Pocket pc using Airtel Live ?"

But at last I got a solution to do so; now It is hassle free to configure and browse through internet on Pocket PC phones like ASUS or HTC using Airtel GPRS (Airtel Live) especially in India.

Here are the steps to configure settings to use internet in PDA browsers.

I tried it on Windows Mobile 6.1, and it worked like charm for me.
  • First Activate Airtel Live by sending the required SMS to 121
  • Assuming your airtel Live is now active for account.
  • Tap Start -> Settings.
  • Select Connections Tab and tap Connections.
  • Select Advanced Tab, tap Select Networks button to bring up Network Management.
  • Under "Programs that automatically connect to the Internet should connect using:" drop down, tap the New button.
  • In the General Tab, type the name of the settings as Airtel Live
  • Select Modem tab, tap New...
  • Type the name of connection as Airtel Live, select the modem as Cellular Line (GPRS) and tap Next.
  • Type Access Point Name as airtelfun.com and tap next.
  • Leave username, password and domain blank and tap finish.
  • Select Proxy Settings tab. Tap "This network connects to the Internet". This should enable the next check box option.
  • Tap "This network uses a proxy server to connect to the Internet".
  • Type the proxy server as: 100.1.200.99 and then tap Advanced...
  • Tap HTTP, leave the server as 100.1.200.99 and change the port to 8080
  • Similarly tap WAP, Secure WAP and Socks, type the server as 100.1.200.99 but leave the port to defaults. These are optional settings.
  • Tap OK to close the Advanced proxy setup screen.
  • Tap OK to close the New connection screen.
  • The network management screen should now list the new connection you have created in the drop-down. Tap OK to close this screen
  • Tap OK to close the connection screen.

Here you go !! open your Internet explorer browser from programs and start browsing your favourite sites.

    Once u followed the steps clearly and correctly try restarting ur phone and soft reset.Then it should open google page in IE. dont try loading bog pages as the connection speed is damn slow u may not know it is working or not. and dont try connecting messengers and all as it never connected in my phone. I strongly suggest its waste to use on airtel live on asus. Try Mobile office scheme which dont need any of these settings and its comparatively faster and better than Airtel live.

  14. Dear krishna,

    I activated the GPRS from airtel and followed your steps. The phone is connected to airtel live but it doesn't open the webpage. The following error appears:

    "The page can not be displayed or downloaded because the connection was lost. check the connection and try again later"

    Although the GPRS icon "E" is there and when it is tapped, it shows connected. I tried it sevaral times, at multiple locations from home from office. but the same error again and again. It's quite frustating. custome care is useless. I swtched on and switched off the phone so many times. removed and re-inserted the sim. but to no avail. can u tell me what is the problem and how can it be solved. My phone is still in warrantee. i have almost made the mind to return it....

Who ever writes Inappropriate/Vulgar comments to context, generally want to be anonymous …So I hope U r not the one like that?
For lazy logs u can at least use Name/URL option which don’t even require any sign-in, good thing is that it can accept your lovely nick name also and URL is not mandatory too.
Thanks for your patience
