    Could you tell me how to set it up on android phones? Airtel support have been of little help.

    Call the customer care folks & have the 3G services activated, you will receive an SMS from Airtel confirming activation of 3G services, wait for 2 hours, set all your network settings to default/automatic, restart phone if required & you should see 3G near your signal bar n you should be able to use it. Access point is default : airtelgprs.com username n password is blank,

    Ps: I use an iPhone 4

    I have already done that. Airtel CC is clueless of what's happening. They have not been able to provide me with the manual apn settings for Android yet. If it was a Nokia I would have received the automatic settings.

    i just sent the SMS "3G" (without the " ) to 121 , they sent a message saying wait for 4 hours , and the next morning , when I checked , there was no settings that was sent ...

    later in the day , i tried to connect on my Android phone , using the mobile office settings , and my phone was connected at a very high speed (downloading at 65kbps) . Though , my 3G phone does not display 3G for connection , it shows H (HSDPA) ..

    @BD123 , will check once again with AirtelGPRS settings ...
    PS : Quite a bit of speed variation , cos I can get 65kbps near Forum Mall , 20 kbps near Leela Hotel ...

    Same here I didnt get the settings automatically . Ended using the Mobile Office APN .
    The signal's are very weak ( 1-7 asu) so if we use the dual mode as Airtel CC ppl keep saying , the phone will switch to 2G and will be on EDGE. Keep the mode as WCDMA.

    The speeds I get are between 400-800 kbps. ( tested with speedtest). Not sure if its because of using the Mobile Office APN or because of poor signal.
