BSNL 3G Settings For HTC Desire Android

Steps To Set Up BSNL 3G On HTC Desire Android

First of all confirm that you have subscribed to BSNL 3G internet. I guess now all the existing SIM cards are now 3G enabled.

1. Start your android smartphone & go to Settings.

2. Go to mobile internet & options.

3. You can see 3 connections there already set up as Cellone WAP, Cellone MMS & Cellone GPRS.

4. Al you have to do is create new connection from menu with following settings.

Connection name: BSNLNET

APN: bsnlnet

Dont enter any username & password there.

5. If you are not able to find new connection option you can directly go to Cellone GPRS settings & just edit it name & APN  as mentioned above.

6. Dont forget to SAVE the settings.

7. Now enable Mobile internet by ticking the Mobile Internet.

Voila !!! You’re Done !

Now you can turn off  Wi Fi to just test the mobile internet. And start browsing internet. If it does not work, just restart your phone & check- It will work as charm.

You can see H (normally u see 3G on other phone) sign at top right of your cellphone notification bar.  H is signifying HSDPA stands for high speed 3G connection of 3.6 mbps.

Hope you have find these steps helpful. Let me know if you still face some issues regarding it.

    HTC will configure itself for network provider settings in most of the phones.

    All you have to do is go to settings > Wireless Settings > mobile Phone connection & check here if BSNL is selected by default.

    Let me know what you get at this stage
