If you have bought that awesome HTC wildfire handset and looking for GPRS settings then I suppose this post should be of some help.

The normal way should be to call up Airtel Customer Care and ask them to provide you a manual walkthrough to set the GPRS settings. But we all know how crappy is the experience there. So here is the settings help for all those who want it.

go to settings > wireless & Networks >Mobile networks
there is one Mobile Network as well…sont confuse with that.
Then Click Access Point Names.

I see three option on my New HTC WildFire.
1. Airtel Live

2.Mobile Office

3.Airtel MMS

Choose Mobile Office

Make these Settings

Name – Mobile Office (MO or what ever)
APN – airtelgprs.com
Proxy – Not Set
Port – <Not set>
Username – <Not set>
Password – <Not set>
Server – <Not set>
MMSC – <Not set>
MMSC Proxy – <Not set>
MMS Port – <Not set>
MMS Protocol – wap 2.0
MCC – 404
MNC- 10
Auth type – notset
API Type – Default

Thats all Save and you are ready to roll. Welcome to Airtel GPRS/EDGE

    @ PANKAJ,
    Hello pankaj,
    I also went through same problem, but tried another way,
    if Mobile office option is disabled, just click on menu & reset the setting of APN.
    thats all, GPRS will get started.

    Tried setting up GPRS on my HTC Wildfire as per your tips.

    But when I entered MNC 10 and after saving the setting Internet cannot be accessed.

    I switched back to my old setting for MNC 49 and the net is working.

    What could be the problem?

    htc is very vast mobile do not buy dis.

  19. Purchased a brand new HTC about a month ago as a company phone however am very disappointed , firstly i’d have about 400 contacts on my prior XDA and was in a position to view by company or individual, not so on phone only by person which is of no use especially with no search option either. Battery fairly great approx 18 hours medium usage. Wireless/bluetooth weak, combined with parrott car kit ok for day or so however will not connect even by unpairing and pairing new.
