It is rather easy to configure Nepal Telecom’s GPRS, now upgraded to EDGE, and even 3G data connection in your smartphone. Here is a couple of GPRS/EDGE/3G configuration for smartphones including iPhone for NTC’s SIM.
By default GPRS is always-on meaning even though you aren’t using any app that connect to Internet, your mobile’s internet connection is being used, so be careful only to activate data when needed unless you are in unlimited package.
Parameters setting for NTC GPRS & MMS
Proxy Server :- 126.96.36.199, Port :- 8000 (which is normal http port)
For accessing internet/WAP through your mobile handset :-
GPRS APN :- ntwap
GPRS Home Page :- http://wap.ntc.net.np
Even though NTC encourages users to use WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) to connect internetnet in your mobile handset, it is advised to config with ntnet rather than ntwap. Be warned NTNET is faster (atleast theoretically, and will bring in more data volume consumption!) than NTWAP.
For accessing internet through computer by using GPRS service in your mobile phone :-
APN :- ntnet

It’s all automatic now, just send an SMS with gprs in message and send to 1404. Then NTC will send you the GPRS configuration which you need to save in your mobile phone, then restart your handset, voila you have working Internet connection now.
