Connecting PC/Laptop to Internet Using Ufone GPRS – Step by Step Setting

We have previously learned, how to connect PC or Laptop with internet using Mobilink’s GPRS. Continuing the same series, today we will learn about connecting Desktop PC or Laptop with internet using Ufone’s GPRS, We know that Ufone offer unlimited GPRS plan for Rs. 600 (excluding taxes).

And if you are using standard GPRS plans (Rs. 15 + tax per MB), even then internet on Laptop/PC with Ufone’s GPRS can be handy, especially while you are on the go or when there is no other ineternet means.

NOTE: Please confirm GPRS pricing, before you use it with you PC//Laptop, otherwise your bill will hit its limit very quickly.

Using your mobile With Ufone Connection as a modem on Window XP

You can connect your mobile phone with your laptop by

1.    Using infrared link
2.    Using data cable

Before starting…

1.    Subscription to GPRS is a prerequisite, (meaning that you must have GPRS active for your Ufone) make sure that you are subscribed to GPRS. To know how to subscribe to GPRS for your Ufone Number, click here
2.    Make sure that you have installed your handset drivers on your desktop/laptop. These drivers come in the CD that was with Mobile Phone when you purchased it
3.    In case of connecting through data cable, make sure the data cable is attached and the mobile is detected by the computer
4.    Other way, you can also connect Via Infra Red. (not recommended) in this case confirm that the handset supports IR reception and same is available on your laptop
5.    Now we assume that you have connected your phone with your Desktop PC or laptop. And device drivers are installed, and GPRS is active for your Ufone number…!
6.    If you are done with these things, then you are ready to follow the rest of process…read on

  • Hi,there can any one tell me how can I use blackberry handset as normal gprs without having bis or any bb services I am using blackberry 8320 handset with mobilink and zong.
    Thank u.

    • @Maqsood, Sorry for getting late in replying your email.

      Well, first of all, you need to get your GPRS activated against your number. Once done, you need to ask your operator to send you GPRS/MMS setting for BB 8320.

      They will send you an SMS which you will have to save on your phone.

      After saving, restart your phone and youre done with GPRS setup on Phone.

  • Allah k fazal is page per kafi disciplind log comments detey hey. Nice exchange of quastion and answer.

  • ohhh GOD a marathon effort is required to be connected to the internet…this article is a piece of crap. If u wanna enjoy internet than its damn easy. Just install a pc suite software for ur mobile and connect ur mobile to the laptop or pc using datacable or bluetooth….than open the pc suite and click on the option connect to the internet…..and enjoy….if u have the latest nokia handset than u don,t need to install pc suite…just connect handset to the pc and it will automatically install a software and u will be able to enjoy internet….no need for these manual connections…..don,t waste ur time in these stings etc……

  • however if u have zong internet than it really sucks. You can use it on handset for browsing but its very slow on laptop….u will never ever be able to update ur antivirus even so its simply means wastage of time….but ufone is a bit better
