GPRS Settings For Android Handsets: : Ufone/ Zong/ Telenor/ Warid/ Mobilink

Android handsets are starting to see the light of day in Pakistan but sadly the cellular networks over here or more precisely the customer care people aren’t aware of their GPRS/EDGE settings, while Androids don’t accept automated settings messages.

But thanks to Haris Nadeem from AndroidPakistan.com we now have GPRS/EDGE settings for every mobile network here in Pakistan, yes you heard that right, GPRS setting for Andriod phones for every mobile network!

The first time I took my Nexus One to head office of a cellular company in Islamabad for GPRS settings, the representative over there took my handset, looked at it for like 5 minutes and then blurted out “Is this an iPhone?”, from that moment I realized that Android users are on their own when it comes to internet/GPRS settings.

Follow these simple steps and you’ll have Internet/EDGE up and running on your Android handset in no time!

Ufone

EDGE/GPRS Settings

  • Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks >Access Point Names.
  • Press the ‘Menu’ key and select “New APN”.
  • Now use the following settings:
    Name: Ufone Internet (anything you like)
    APN: ufone.internet ufone.pinternet
    MCC: 410 (should be there by default)
    MNC: 01 (use whatever is there by default)
  • You can leave all the other fields blank as they are and save these settings.

Zong

EDGE/GPRS Settings

  • Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks >Access Point Names.
  • Press the ‘Menu’ key and select “New APN”.
  • Now use the following settings:
    Name: zonginternet (anything you like)
    APN: zonginternet or zongwap
    MCC: 410 (should be there by default)
    MNC: 01 (use whatever is there by default)
  • You can leave all the other fields blank as they are and save these settings.

Mobilink

EDGE/GPRS Settings

  • Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks >Access Point Names.
  • Press the ‘Menu’ key and select “New APN”.
  • Now use the following settings:
  • Name: Mobilink (anything you like)
  • APN (prepaid): jazzconnect.mobilinkworld.com
  • APN (postpaid): connect.mobilinkworld.com
  • MCC: 410 (should be there by default)
  • MNC: 01 (use whatever is there by default)

Telenor

EDGE/GPRS Settings

  • Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks >Access Point Names.
  • Press the ‘Menu’ key and select “New APN”.
  • Now use the following settings:
    Name: Telenor (anything you like)
    APN: internet
    Proxy: 172.018.019.011
    Port: 0
    Username: Telenor (case-sensitive)
    Password: Telenor (case-sensitive)
    MCC: 410 (should be there by default)
    MNC: 06 (use whatever is there by default)

Warid

Thanks a lot to Asim Farooq for sending this in for Warid !

  • Go to Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks >Access Point Names.
  • Press the ‘Menu’ key and select “New APN”.
  • Now use the following settings:

Name: Warid GPRS

  • Now use the following settings:
    Name: Warid Internet (anything you like)
    APN: warid or waridwap
    MCC: 410 (should be there by default)
    MNC: 07 (use whatever is there by default)
    APN type: default
  • You can leave all the other fields blank as they are and save these settings.

And that’s about it, you now have internet/GPRS settings for your precious Android device.

Note: These settings were tested on Android 2.1 Éclair and 2.2 Froyo for now, but it’s highly likely that they will work on Android 1.5 and 1.6 as well.

Note: We will post complete set of MMS settings for Android handsets as well once we them in one place, so stay tuned!


  • Mobilink MMS Setting

    Name: Mobilink (anything you like)

  • Android handsets normally acquire the GPRS/MMS settings from the network automatically. So you just have to change a couple of things, but for naive users this post is helpful. Thanks Harris.

      • Dear mary,

        more or less every phone have same settings for ufone as follows:

        Name: ufone-mms
        APN: ufone.pmms
        Proxy:
        Port:
        Username: ufone
        Password: ufone
        Server:
        MMSC: http://www.ufonemms.com:80
        MMS Proxy: 172.16.13.27
        MMS Port: 8080
        MMS Protocol: WAP 2.0
        MSC: 410
        MNC: 03
        Authentication type:
        APN type: mms

        MMS is a two step process
        1) call ufone help and request them to activate mms on ur sim
        2) make above mentioned settings on ur cell

        and it will work (Inshallah)
