I am using G1 and I am on Airtel Mumbai.
I have mobile office GPRS.

All I have done is entering APN as airtelgprs.com and all other values as blank and I have my GPRS.....

Hey.... getting the MMS working was my challenge...
Internet just needs the airtelgprs.com APN.

I did not put this in the APN Big thread as there are many users searching for Airtel APN in India and if this becomes a part of a big thread then google would not be able to index it.

Do you want me to delete this thread and add it to the big APN thread ?

I had a though time finding the setting for Airtel India specially for MMS, so thought of creating a separate thread.

Please let me know so I can delete this....

I was just saying, we have the thread now, and it probably is easier to find. You could always put it in the Big APN thread aswell =)

Sorry, wasn't trying to flame before :-/

Thanks Dear,
Recently i have got my HTC HERO and i configured APN and its working fine.Thanks for sharing ....Anuj.

Hey your welcome...I had a tough time searching so thought of putting it up so others can get it easily.

Wanted to add one point to my post:
If you have added the APN for Airtelgprs.com and then after exiting the settings add the MMS it sometime wont work on G1. Delete all APN`s and then add both one after other.

Hello all,

I've just returned from 3 weeks in India and I used my AirTel SIM card (Rajasthan-sourced) in Jaipur, Agra, Delhi, Cochin, Bangluru, Goa, Mumbai and on many trains.

It worked very well and had excellent coverage. Pretty cheap, too!

Had a devil of a time getting it all started though. Luckily I had a WM6.5 phone that allowed me to use SMS help since the 121 HelpLine was more than USELESS! (English tree prompts kept hanging up on me). Turned out the shop I bought the sim card from neglected to turn on GPRS...

WM6.5 and SMS menus and I had it going in a few minutes.

GPRS activation was the key...

All I put in for the APN was airtelgprs.com and just named it India!

Good luck all.

1)If you have email working now, then it will work whenever you have a data connection.
2)I'm guessing you're going to have to pay for data
3) What does GPS have to do with with EDGE? The google maps application will be able to download the map tiles on whatever connection you have, be it GPRS, EDGE or 3G.

GPS & GPRS India

GPS (Global Positioning System) works in India and is free.
GPRS needs to be activated and Airtel has Edge i dont have idea about Vodafone.

Gmail will be setup automatically and so will gtalk.
For MSN and Yahoo you need to download a 3rd Party app.
To configure any pop3 email it has easy steps to configure.

PM me if u need ne help

THANKS Mate! You posted these steps back in 2009. These are still helpful now in 2011 when many are using Android devices. Specially the MMS part.
I don't know how you figured out that but my respect for finding out.

On first attempt I simply edited the details and did not delete the APNs. But I had to completely follow the steps by deleting all APNs and so on. Finally it worked.

Also, your decision to create separate thread was right. I came thru Google lookin for "Airtel MMS Settings on Android".

Cheers

I had to search and do a lot of trial and error testing to get things working. Just wanted to make it simple for other users and your reply says it all :-D
