Friends using BSNL Excel Prepaid often ask me how to activate GPRS on their phones. One has to do the following:
Activate your GPRS service
Send an SMS to 53733 with the following text.
Soon, you will get a reply message like this.
Your GPRS facility will be activated shortly.
Configure your handset with the correct settings
For this, you can call up the customer care. Or better still, get it from the CellOne site for automatic setting download onto your mobile. There you can also get the settings for manual configuration, if you want that.
Now you can enjoy internet on your mobile. To know how much you will be charged, have a look at this.
