    This new hack lets you surf the Internet at the speeds of 3G from normal BSNL Prepaid card. So why pay more when you are getting 3G speed at a very nominal cost. Here is how you can get 3G speeds, obviously you have to have a 3G enabled mobile phone.

    1. Buy a normal 2G BSNL SIM card. It must have a minimum balance of Rs.50+ else the GPRS service will not be activated.

    2. Activate GPRS by sending GPRS PRE to 53733.

    3. GPRS will be activated within 24 hours. After the GPRS is activated call the customer care for the GPRS settings.

    4. Setup your phone according to the settings given by BSNL’s Customer Care.

    5. Now do a e-Recharge with Rs.230, or whatever unlimited plan exists in your area.

    6. Go to your mobile phones network settings and select Dual Mode or UMTS as your Network Mode. In Nokia Mobiles, you can find this setting under Tools > Settings > Phone > Network> Network Mode.

    7. Search for BSNL 3G signals, you will see a 3G logo near the network name. Set it as default.

    8. That’s it now you can surf the Internet at 3G speeds. You will get near about 500kbps to 1200 kbps speed.

    ye it does work , but you will not get the full speed of 3G unless you buy a 3G USIM . I am getting speeds of 15 kBps constant on downloads from torrents and direct links.

    it can't work because 3g's access point is different from 2g's access point.
    there is a trick to use any gprs service free of cost goto <sniped> to see.
