Configuring Airtel Mobile Office

I activated Mobile office yesterday and the download speeds in mobile is pretty fast with my N73 EDGE supported mobile.

Here are the settings for Mobile office for mobile,
SMS GPRS to 567 for one day unlimited usage of mobile office, or make a 375 rs recharge for one month unlimited usage.

After recieving settings from Airtel, save the settings. In the mobile, go to,

Menu ->Settings ->Connection ->Packet data -> Access point -> set as "airtelgprs.com"

Then, Menu ->Services -> Settings -> Access Point ->Set as Mobile Office

[NOP users should set the homepage as "www.google.com"]

To use Mobile office in system,
> Connect the mobile to the system via Datacable or bluetoooth.
> Open Network connections and create a new connection
> Select Modem as Phone modem from the shown list
> Set the dialing number as *99***1#
> Leave the username and password fields blank.
> Finish the wizard and connect as if connecting via dialup.

N73 connects to Airtel at 486kbps, but the download speeds of Airtel is just like normal dialup.
But, the download speed in the mobile is reasonable.

  1. Bharath,

    Thanks for this information. I'm trying to use Mobile Office in Rajasthan, and this information came quite useful.

    Couple of updates:

    1. The dial-up number for the connection on the system has been changed to: *99***3#

    2. The cost in Rajasthan (as of April 2007) is Rs. 395 Unlimited

    Thanks!

  3. Very useful info.

    I just installed it on my new laptop but could not find which number should be dialed. My old laptop has gone for repairs. I found it here and am online within a minute.

    Thanx once again.

  4. Bharath,

    I have purchased a new i-mate with WM6.0 I tried contacting the customer support for the GPRS setting but didnot get a result, they only asked me to send an sms "ALL to 2567". I tried this several times but got no result. Do you have any idea on the settings for this? If so do mail me to moosakhan@gmail.com

    Thanks,
    Moosa Khan
