Setting BSNL 3G on Samsung Omnia Pro (B7320)

I am posting this tutorial so that all those who want to set up their Samsung Omnia Pro (B7320) Mobile phone with BSNL 3G to do Video Calls and use High Speed Internet.

First of all you will need a BSNL 3G SIM.

Video Calls

On your Phone Goto : Start->Settings->Phone->All Calls->Band Selection
There you will see 4 Options.

Select WCDMA
(You will receive a warning that it will work with 3G network only)

Then if your cell is able to catch the 3G Signal then you will see 3G in the main screen of your mobile phone.

Now you can make Video Calls without any trouble.

High Speed Internet Surfing

Keep the Band Selection option as WCDMA

Goto : Start->Settings->Connections->GPRS->New..

Put the following details :
Description : bsnlgprs
Connects to : The Internet
Access Point : bsnlnet

(Leave other settings as it is) then save it.

Now Connect your phone on your Laptop using Active Sync or whatever method you use (Not much trouble right now)

Again on your Cellphone Goto : Start->Internet Sharing

Select PC Connection : USB (or Bluetooth is you want to use it by Bluetooth)
Network Connection : bsnl_gprs
Then Connect

Within few seconds your Mobile will connect to 3G or High Speed Internet connection, you will see 3G or H near your network Signals.

Now you can surf Internet on your PC/Laptop

Do check your Surfing speed on : Speedtest.net

The speed will vary at different places depending upon the Network Signals.
Speed I got is 256 Kbps as network signals are weak at my place.

Have Fun

Aditya

Hi, I am finding it difficult to set GPRS / 3G in my Samsung Omnia Pro B7230 handset through BSNL Bangalore. Can you please help me with the settings ?

Could you tell me at what step you got trouble. First you need to change the network mode to WCDMA, then create a profile on your cellphone bsnlgprs as given in the blog post. Then connect on your PC/laptop using Internet Sharing.

If you still have any problem then you can contact me at adityastar AT gmail.com

You just need to select the proper profile on your internet explorer or opera (whichever u use). Just goto Options and choose The Internet as connection.

Hi!

How can I surf using my unit? I'm having problems connecting to a website. It always gets cancelled. One technician told me that it has to do with 2G. :( I can't remove the 3G.

Can you help? Thanks a lot :)

I haven't got any new themes and am still using the one which was provided by Samsung.
