    Hi, I am using Sony Ericsson W850i and have recently subscribed to PlanetHutch Services for West Bengal. The problem is my I could not connect using GPRS in spite of the fact that GPRS has been successfully activated (I confirmed this from the Hutch Customer Care personnel) :( :(

    Since there is no automatic settings available for my phone model, I have manually set up the GPRS settings...

    ============================================================================
    Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Data communication:

    Data Accounts: [PS Type]: Hutch_GPRS

    APN: portainmms
    username:
    password:
    Login Request: Off
    Allow Calls: Automatic
    IP Address: ... (also tried with 10.10.1.100)
    DNS Address: ...
    Authentication: None, PAP, CHAP
    Data Compression: Off
    Header Compression: Off

    Menu > Settings > Connectivity > Internet Profiles:

    Connect Using: Hutch_GPRS
    Use Proxy: Yes
    Proxy Address: 10.10.1.100
    Port No: 9401
    Username:
    Password:
    ===========================================================================

    With These Settings whenever I try to browse using the WAP browser, at first it tries to reconnect and then gives the foll. error message:

    "Connection Failure. Check settings. If problem persists Contact your operator" :(

    Please help me with this problem. The hutch personnel said to clean up the SIM and then reconnect but its failing. Seems to be a problem with my phone settings :( :(

    Your APN is wrong. It should be 'portalnmms' instead of 'portainmms' (replace 'i' with 'l')

    I'm glad it worked. I used to have hutch long back. Used the gprs on it extensively. Almost know the gprs settings by heart.

    Downloads limits weren't counted earlier in hutch, orange then. I guess that's when he used to use it.

    Yeah that's right. Earlier (around a couple of years ago), hutch (previously Orange in mumbai) used to offer gprs at Rs.99/month in mumbai. It was an unlimited plan. Its then that i used it extensively. Now they charge according to amount of data transfered.

    Try calling Hutch's customer care. They'll be the right people for the job.
