Internet settings for Nepal Telecom (NTC) GSM Mobile Phones
Here is a simple solution to enable GPRS or 3G or 4G Internet in NTC GSM Pre-Paid Mobile phone.
Nepal Telecom’s (NTC) Pre-paid GSM Service – Namaste Phone – comes with pre-activated cellular data services (GPRS, 3G or 4G when available) provided you have the new SIM card or you are currently in new NTC Network signal.
Dial *9# from your mobile and see if you get your mobile number. You are in the new network area if you get your mobile number. Otherwise you are still in the old network. This procedure doesn’t work if you have recently got a new SIM card from NTC as it is pre-new network enabled.
