    BSNL 3G Settings-How to activate and Setup BSNL 3G Mobile Internet (India)

    Advert.
    Unlike other countries, Most of the India is still waiting for 3G mobile services to be launched. Looks like that our bureaucrats are not in hurry to give license to telecom companies for 3G. Earlier before Election, it was said to have 3G spectrum auction around JUNE but now they are saying that it will be somewhere near the end of Year 2009.. so not sure when exactly whole India will enjoy 3G. However, BSNL and MTNL, State RUN telecom companies already got 3G license but still not available throughout, however I happen to be in one of the city where BSNL 3G is available.

    So here are few details which might help you if you are first time 3G user.

    Activating BSNL 3G

    Activation is quite easy, all you need is to buy 3G SIM which costs Rs. 300 with 7 days validity and no talktime, after that you are required to recharge it with one of the data recharge they provide.
    You can start with Rs. 400 recharge which give you 30 days validity and 1 GB of data usage.

    Settings / Configuration for BSNL 3G on Mobile

    It is very easy, configuration are similar to GPRS so you will not find it hard if you configured GPRS ever...
    1. Make sure your PHONE is set to work on 3G network ie. in my phone, to use 3G network, I had to select "WCDMA" in my network mode settings. You should see "3G" written somewhere on your phone screen if it is connected to 3G network.
    2. Now depending upon the phone, goto Connection settings, there create new connection profile and now you are only required to specify APN and you are done.
    APN stands for "ACCESS POINT NAME" . You are required to specify following APN for BSNL 3G settings:
    gprsnorth3g.bsnlmobile.in
    Apart of that, leave every thing default or blank and you are done.

    Now you should be able to use 3G on your phone.

    Speed of BSNL 3G internet

    I tested speed of 3G in my area, I was getting around 800 kbps download speed at my home and around 1.4 mbps when I tried test from another location. In most of the case, you will not get less than 500 kbps speed. That is pretty good as compared to current mobile internet option we have in India.

    Now this BSNL 3G works as backup connection as well as internet on move for me as now I have two connection, 1 my regular aDSL and second one this BSNL 3G.

    UPDATE
    Please use APN as "bsnlnet" if above APN doesn't works.

    Lastly

    Finally, the 3G is here.

    But sadly, Its toooo expensive and there are no TRUE UNLIMITED plans.

    ohh!!! SpoilSort!

    BSNL can give EVDO unlimited for Rs 550, What the hell's wrong here then?

    Yes BHVM, EVDO is basically 3G over CDMA and I don't understand who planned those tariff for 3G data usage. Moreover, they are not even giving actual HSDPA speed... maximum I achieved was 1.4 mbps and upload is lame, may be 3G technology limitation.

    Its not a "limitation" of 3G, but a limitation of Thinking of these poilitcians and Companies who don't have open hearts to let the india progress.

    My point was that HSDPA ie. 3G can provide 3.6 mbps of speed but still I achieved highest was 1.4 mbps . On the other side HSDPA 2 ie. ie. 3.5G can give 7.2 mbps speed and stil we are not able to enjoy full 3G.
    Hopefully other 3G provider (after their launch) will let us use full potential of 3G.

    HTC touch Diamond officially supports 3G.
    What you seems to be lacking is Correct settings.

    Call the customer care of your City and get respective settings.

    Dear spsingh

    My name is Ricky and you misunderstood it with Rocky, anyways, you need to goto Start --> Settings --> Phone --> More --> Band Selection

    There select WCDMA (if available) ie. band which refers to 3G.

    Let me know if it helps.
