How to activate dialog GPRS MMS settings for android devices (prepaid and postpaid)
For non-android phone users can easily obtain dialog GPRS settings into your device easily by following steps mentioned in dialog website (http://www.dialog.lk/personal/mobile/technology/gprs/). But if your device is android, though you exactly follow the steps, you might only receive a message from 700 saying “You will receive the Data setting of your mobile shortly. Please enter 1111 as the PIN if required.” But you will never receive their configuration message to enter such PIN.
Perhaps you will receive configuration setting without hindrance. Sometimes without your intention, after you switch on mobile data, everything works and you can browse. Then you are lucky. But as dialog service provider says, it’s rare that you can access internet without manually configuring your device. Probability of being lucky is again random and rare. This note is not for such lucky people.
Now go back to our issue. If you are not lucky enough to get them by default, follow the steps mentioned below.
These are the steps for dialog android users to activate GPRS and MMS
Select Settings -> Wireless & networks (or Wireless contorls) -> Mobile networks -> Access point names
Now press Menu -> New APN
Name: Dialog Internet
APN: ppwap (Only prepaid customers)
APN: www.dialogsl.com (Only postpaid customers)
Proxy: Not set
Username: Not set
Password: Not set
Server: Not set
MMS proxy: 192.168.122.002
MMS port: 8080
Authentication type: Not set
APN type: Not set
APN protocol: IPv4
APN roaming protocol: IPv4
Highlighted points are the one you must set by force. Most of the case others are set by default. If not, set them as showed.
That’s all. Now go to Google play or browse internet and check.
If this doesn't work either,
If none of above works, follow the steps in this URL http://nxwiki.blogspot.com/2012/10/dialog-apn-settings-for-android-iphone.html#.ULg8RqxfF8E
Above link shows Internet and MMS settings separately.
If still it doesn't work, contact dialog. Remember this is only for android devices + dialog service users. If you call customer care, they might say you will receive GPRS settings shortly, then enter PIN if required and follow the process as in message showed. You must specifically mention that you tried it but configuration settings were not received, only the message from 777 and ask them ‘do I manually need to set APN settings?’.
Dialog has mentioned about an android application which automatically set all above mentioned settings after you installed it in your device, but I can’t remember its name (sound like powerbooster or something, not sure, please check) and I think the link to that app is not in dialog website (try to check it in appstore). If you can find it, it is the easiest way to configure your device for GPRS.
