Airtel GPRS and Airtel live are two different service from Airtel. Airtel Live is free and restricted to free sites whereas Airtel GPRS is paid service and you have access to all the website and you can also connect your mobile Internet to PC. Anyways you need this settings to access Airtel free GPRS settings which you can read on my earlier post.
These are the ways you can activate your GPRS and Airtel Live settings:
Send MO to 2567 from your Airtel mobile (2567 is a toll free number).
You will receive settings for Airtel Live, Airtel mobile office i.e Airtel GPRS and Airtel MMS.
Save the settings you want to use.
If you want to surf only limited site then I will recommend Airtel Live, specially when you are using Free GPRS trick that will be useful for you.
Else you can go ahead and save the settings for Airtel mobile office and Airtel MMS.
Now to activate Airtel GPRS you need to send GPRSACT from your Airtel number to 511( which is a toll free number). Do remember Airtel GPRS is not a free service and you will be charged as 20 rs per day.
But there is unlimited downloading on Airtel GPRS service (the paid one).
You can also deactivate it by sending a message GPRSDEACT to 511.
Though Airtel Live is activate by default but in case Airtel live is deactivated you can activate it by sending LIVEACT to 511 and to disable it LIVEDEACT to 511.
If you are wondering how to activate Airtel GPRS on your iPhone, FYI Airtel Sim doesn’t require any kind of configuration for GPRS to work on iPhone. Simply activate your GPRS on Airtel Sim and insert it and start browsing. I would suggest to opt for Airtel 98INR -2GB pack for ultimate GPRS experience on your Airtel.
