On clicking Connect I get Error Code 1099. I am using an extension USB data cable. When I first installed it, it worked. Subsequent attempts meet with stated problem. I am using my Vodafone SIM for the same for the time being until I get Aircel SIM activated which is cheaper (1.5GB for Rs198 compared to Voda's 1.5 GB for Rs275). I want to avoid these big players of Cellulars Operators Association of India (COAI) being Airtel, Voda, and Idea who want to rule the roost.
Voda's Helpline at "116" (calling from Voda SIM) had asked my to go to Settings > Connection Settings and click at Add. In it as directed I changed Config File Name to: VMC. Then I inserted Dial # as: *99***1#. Under APN I clicked at Use The Following APN and inserted www. The other settings were left as they were. First time it worked like a charm showing connection being UMTS and was really fast. Second time I started my desktop PC again I started getting the same old Error Code 1099. Can somebody help?
