GPRS Settings For Android Handsets Ufone/ Zong/ Telenor/ Warid/ Mobilink

Android handsets are starting to see the light of day in Pakistan but sadly the cellular networks over here or more precisely the customer care people aren’t aware of their GPRS/EDGE settings, while Androids don’t accept automated settings messages.

But thanks to Haris Nadeem from AndroidPakistan.com we now have GPRS/EDGE settings for every mobile network here in Pakistan, yes you heard that right, GPRS setting for Andriod phones for every mobile network!

The first time I took my Nexus One to head office of a cellular company in Islamabad for GPRS settings, the representative over there took my handset, looked at it for like 5 minutes and then blurted out “Is this an iPhone?”, from that moment I realized that Android users are on their own when it comes to internet/GPRS settings.

Follow these simple steps and you’ll have Internet/EDGE up and running on your Android handset in no time!
