MTNL Trump 3G Jadoo Card Experience

with 137 comments


Add to Google Buzz

Update: For people looking for better rate for data usages, there are many available plans out in Delhi region. As per my view, there are three, which should suit people in the following ways:

  1. People with occasional usages:  Rs. 450/- for 1 Gb
  2. People with good usages: Rs. 1500/- for 15 Gb Currently not available
  3. People with high usages: Rs. 2500/- for Unlimited usages 

Like Chandan said in its Review over MTNL 3G, even I was not having a positive feeling about PSU Telecom Products. Although I have seen like my colleague B. S. Negi said what goes with Government Product that once set to work, they will work flawlessly, although you have to wait endlessly in case any fault occurs in the same.

I have used BSNL Dialup in Azamgarh, BSNL Broadband in Allahabad, Idea Internet (GPRS, PC) in Azamgarh, New Delhi, Mumbai, Varanasi etc., Aircel (GPRS, PC) in New Delhi and I could say that I got BSNL Broadband and Idea only good enough to rely on till now. Till now, I was on Idea Internet, even after they raised prices (earlier it was 5 Rs. per day for Unlimited Use and now its 20 Rs. per day for Unlimited Use) as its the best option, if you have edge in your area. All other options are more costly, if you are a heavy user.

Anyway, I was writing over MTNL 3G. I bought it from a local shop as the MTNL guy didn’t showed up for 2 days and then it was a total one day wait for getting the SIM activated. The excuse was server problem. Pretty funny!!! for the company giving first 3G for connectivity. :)

Initial reception was good and I was able to get around 350 kbps download speed and relatively poor upload speed of about 50-70 kbps on my cell. Although still remained was connecting it to PC. After searching over Internet, I got Chandan’s link and it resolved the issue. The solution was to use Nokia PC Suit and choosing to configure connection manually and putting pps3g as access point and leaving all other fields blank.

airtel test Firstspeedtest

For the people, not using Nokia PC Suit, I found another get around.

Go to Control Panel, then Modem, Choose modem and put [at+cgdcont=1,"ip","pps3g"] without brackets, then simply create a dialup in known way and you are set to go.

What I am still feeling trouble here is the UMTS network reception in my room. I get all network line or most of them, but still I guess, I am not getting proper network with MTNL UTS here. If I put it in UMTS only mode, then I could actually see when 3G network is dipping. That’s causing one more issue heating up my cell as Network is constantly interchanging or discovering mode. These trouble are holding me to recharge the cell for unlimited data plan which is costing Rs. 2500/- per month, although other options are available like Rs. 250 for 0.5 GB and Rs. 450/- for 1GB.

Although for the users who want to go for it and searching that whether it will work in their area or not. Here is the 3G Map provided by MTNL Delhi

map_3gAlthough still I get the famous Error 734: The PPP link control protocol was terminated (Thanks to poor network reception in my room) while connecting to internet. This is an error from Server Side, if you are not getting proper network reception. With this error, I guess you can’t do anything about except waiting to get it resolved on your own or restarting your cell again and again :(

Relieved from the above mention error after changing the area. Now, if I face any trouble then I check the balance. It has been happen sometimes that services might be down, but seems to be stable than early days now.

  3. I am not sure Suman, why you are still facing the issue. If you have Nokia PC Suit, then its matter of seconds and if you have not then its a little bit tricky.

    You have to make a connection using your Nokia Modem first and then go to control panel, then find the modem and then go to advanced tab and write the command I given to put.

  5. As I wrote “The solution was to use Nokia PC Suit and choosing to configure connection manually and putting pps3g as access point and leaving all other fields blank.”

    IN PC Suit there would be an option for connect to internet, go through that.
    Press Settings then Next
    Choose to configure manually check box and
    Just fill access point textbox with pps3g

    Note that you should also have MTNL’s 3G Settings in your cell.. it would be with the name of HSPDA-GPRS-Prepaid or whatever the case may be in your case.

    Hope these instructions may help you out

  7. Rajesh,

    I suggest you to try manual settings like the following (if you are in Delhi)

    Connection Name: 3G-GPRS-PREPAID
    Data Bearer: Packet Data
    Access Point Name: pps3g
    User Name: None
    Prompt Password: No
    Password: None
    Authentification: Normal
    Homepage: http://www.google.com

    Advanced Settings:
    Network Type: IPv4
    Phone IP Address: Automatic
    DNS Address: Automatic
    Proxy Server Address: None
    Proxy Port No: 0

  8. Hi Nitesh

  9. Best be using Sony PC Suit and using Internet Connection tab there. Change the access point to pps3g and it should work, if your phone is connected to Laptop over PC.

    If your Laptop not getting connected with Phone over bluetooth, then its another issue that you will be needed to figure out.

  10. Its easy if you are using Windows XP
    1- type ncpa.cpl in run
    2- create a new dialup conenction using Phone modem with standard settings
    3- Keep username and password fields blank
    4- Now, open control panel, go to phone and modem option
    5- In second tab Advanced, choose the phone modem (must be on some com port).
    6- Go to properties of the same and then to advanced of the modem properties page
    7- Here you will find a box name Initialization command
    paste the below code as it is:
    at+cgdcont=1,”ip”,”pps3g”

    now use the dialup connection and it should connect, if you are using MTNL Prepaid. For postpaid, I am not sure that the same access point works or not!! even in that case, You will needed to know access point and put the same in initialization command in place of pps3g

  11. Hi Nitish,

    Thanks a ton for providing the manual settings for the 3G connection setup. It took me almost 6 hours to try and configure it myself. Unfortunately, nothing seemed to work.

    I finally sought google’s help and here I am. I finally have the internet on my phone up and running (though its four in the morning coz of my failed attempts).

    Anyways, just wanted to thank you for the splendid work you’ve done to help out Noob’s like me man. Thanks again.

    TC,

    If Data cable not connecting you to cell, then try bluetooth option

    February 28, 2010 at 10:54 am

  34. Hi Aditya,
    *99# is the number to be dialed.
    As about your error “Subscribe to Packet Data”, you seem not subscribed to particular plan HSPDA or 3G one or might be the case that its not added in the default connection of phone.

    Try to get settings from Subscriber side and then save it as default. It should work fine then.

    for ur amid and insane
    I m able to acess internet in my pc.
    just last favour i need that speed is not according to my Desire.how to accelerate speed.I m using nokia 7210

    Aditya

    February 28, 2010 at 4:33 pm

  36. Aditya!! I guess the reason behind the same must be your set itself. Nokia 7210 Supernova doesn’t have 3G means you are bound to get a maximum of 232 kbps that’s a max for Class 32/ Edge, if I am not wrong.

    I managed to get around 115 kbps or a little more in most of the scenarios means a max of 15 kbps speed you will get while downloading. If your set would have 3G, then it was another story I guess

    • Viren,
      Check your Balance and also change your network to UMTS only, if there is some option for the same. Restart the phone, if network is showing there, then Internet should work now.

    • Sure dear,
      Very easily if using Nokia PC suit. Just choose manual setting and put access point name as pps3g everything else blank and it should go like zzzzzzzzoommm

      I am just using it on a new PC with a new set by today

      March 13, 2010 at 9:59 pm

  44. well, it’s not working on windows vista, i don’t know why ? kindly, give me settings in detail
    i am using nokia N85 & having a nokia pc-suite also

    thanks

    vinay

    March 15, 2010 at 2:24 pm

  45. Vinay,

    First connect your cell via Nokia PC Suit in Vista, then check in control panel, there must be a modem in name of your Nokia N95. Then you have go through “Connect Internet” option in Nokia PC Suit.

    Here in setting, choose Nokia Software Modem as modem and then put pps3g as access point and leave rest as blank. Now, try to connect and it should go for sure.

    If not activated GPRS on your set, then you could send ACTGPRS to 444 to activate. For manual settings, you need to create a new access point in your cell yourself with settings as I mentioned in other comments.

    March 27, 2010 at 11:21 pm

  47. not sure dear.. have to check over some blackberry that where access point settings are .. then create a new access point in any name with manual setting as I mentioned in previous comments and then go for it.

    As about laptop or desktop, then its more easy if your GPRS is activated on phone. just find the modem and make a connection through it. Dial number would be *99# and in Modem, advanced initialization commands should be
    at+cgdcont=1,”ip”,”pps3g”

    Check my early comments

  49. Hi Mittal,
    For the first hand resolution, go to settings and change the network type to ‘UMTS’ in place of default ‘Dual’. Although as your error says, it should not be the exact case, but give it a try.

    In next attempt, try to put the settings as default and if not working, then try manual settings as I given in earlier comments

    And by the way, the name is Nitish not Nitesh :P

    The signal bar is showing 3.5g (my sim has an activated 3G connection)

    when i try to connect the internet the phone shows following error:

    ” Packed Data: Packed Data Connection Not Available”

    What could possible be wrong??
    Plz help

    Rahil

    June 1, 2010 at 12:03 am

  51. Only having the settings not sufficient. You need to get the services activated from your provider that would be MTNL.

    To activate 3G service
    Prepaid : SMS `ACT 3G` to 444
    Postpaid : Dial 1503

    But as you said you already got activated connection (though I am not sure), then it might be the case that access point setting is wrong somewhere.. make sure the one you are using has pps3g written as Access Point Name

    Nitish Kumar

    June 1, 2010 at 12:14 am

  52. Hello Nitish..From 31st May onwards all the MTNL customers in delhi are automaticaly trasfered to 3g networks.

    http://mtnldelhi.in/conversion_3g.htm

    I have never seen 3.5G written below the signal bar before! DO i still need to send ACT 3G on 444?

    Rahil

    June 1, 2010 at 1:29 pm

    • Network Availability and Subscription are two different things. My bro’s phone in Azamgarh, UP showing 3G but 3G not activated in UP yet, neither do he is able to access net.

      That’s why I mentioned that you should try that. Though I doubt that the keyword would be same. Confirm Customer care once.

    Please help me

    • If its saying that there is Hardware failure, then you have problem with your connectivity cable drivers. Dialing modem will only work if PC Suit or Ovi Suit getting connected.

    • Are you able to open the phone from your PC? Is any com port showing against the modem name in Control panel? If no then you have problem with Drivers otherwise some error in the string

    when i connect my phone to pc it shows “Subscribe to Packet Data first”.
    When i choose settings on my phone “TRUMP GPRS”, my gprs is working fine on 3g network by showing “G” and other settings are not working.
    What could be the problem with my service provider or with my phone?

    July 7, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    • Good news is.. Your handset supports 3G.
      Bad news is .. G doesn’t stands for 3G, it will show up like 3.5G and Trump GPRS settings are for Phone only not PC.

      Your 3G seems not activated as of now. It will show up as 3G-GPRS-Prepaid. Get that activated with help of Customer care first. It should work then.

      For PC connectivity, following the instructions in my comments above.

      Nitish Kumar

      July 7, 2010 at 5:00 pm

        • That’s OK, but Trump_GPRS is for WAP and not for PC usage. For PC usages, you need that particular Access Point that I am talking about.

          Check the instructions in above comments and put the custom initialization commands in Advanced Tab of Modem properties. Command would be
          at+cgdcont=1,”ip”,”pps3g”

    • Though speed depends on your area, but most of the time you should achieve 2mbps+ at least. As about settings, then you could check out my replies in above comments.

  58. Customer Care tell me to use
    Access Point : mtnlppsdel
    UserName : mtnl
    Password : mtnl123
    in the nokia pc suite manual settings
    and it’s working fine.
    As my mobile is Nokia 2730c so it’s max speed is 460Kbps .
    but mtnl plans are so much expensive.
    I am waiting when they lower down the prices for unlimited plan.

    • The most easy shot would be looking at if you are not running out of balance at first place, secondly check if everything right with your 3.5G signals.

      If both the things are fine and even it doesn’t work then it might be issue related to settings or from the backend

  63. Hi Nitish, I have an HP Mini 110 1001tu which has a SIM slot in it for 3G mobile Broadband i.e. that you can connect to the internet just inserting that SIM in your laptop, however I haven’t had any success with it. I would really appreciate if you could guide me or provide any info regarding the same.

    • The following instructions should help you in creating a dial up for MTNL 3G internet on your Laptop

      Its easy if you are using Windows XP
      1- type ncpa.cpl in run
      2- create a new dialup conenction using Phone modem with standard settings
      3- Keep username and password fields blank
      4- Now, open control panel, go to phone and modem option
      5- In second tab Advanced, choose the phone modem (must be on some com port).
      6- Go to properties of the same and then to advanced of the modem properties page
      7- Here you will find a box name Initialization command
      paste the below code as it is:
      at+cgdcont=1,”ip”,”pps3g”

      now use the dialup connection and it should connect, if you are using MTNL Prepaid. For postpaid, I am not sure that the same access point works or not!! even in that case, You will needed to know access point and put the same in initialization command in place of pps3g

  65. Mr.NITISH,

    u R OF lot of help to many 3G crazy people like me.

    I am using Nokia 5630D. It is a 3G phone.I am activated..(or told so..) by 3G Jadoo ,MTNL,Delhi. I am getting signak 3.5G.

    But, the thing is..I am getting connected to Internet only through GPRS i.e 2G.

    Many times I talked to MTNL. But, they simple send the settings once again. I treid many possibilities ..and your instructions too…

    Is there any way to know whether I am connected through WAP/2G/3G/ or HSDPA (3.5G)..?

    Thank You..

    • Try this ..

      Go to Settings -> Phone -> Network -> Network Mode
      and set that to UMTS mode.

      Then it will run only 3G not 2G, though will drain battery as 3G does.

      If your Internet will be working then, it has 3G activated and you have settings.

      If Internet doesn’t work, then you need to get the setting or manually create the settings

      That will be something like

      Connection Name: 3G-GPRS-PREPAID
      Data Bearer: Packet Data
      Access Point Name: pps3g
      User Name: None
      Prompt Password: No
      Password: None
      Authentification: Normal
      Homepage: http://www.google.com

      Advanced Settings:
      Network Type: IPv4
      Phone IP Address: Automatic
      DNS Address: Automatic
      Proxy Server Address: None

      • I tried this..but again the same message is displayed i.e ‘Packet data Connection is not available’

        I could connect only when I change APN to ‘gprsppsdel’

        Why I am so particular is.. when I Paid for 3G, why should I get 2G only.

        To be frank..even TRUM GPRS Speed is quite OK for me.
        Even on PC, I am getting good speed.

        anyway..thank You..I suppose ..MTNL have not activated 3G for me. That’s why I am getting connected through Trump Gprs.

        August 13, 2010 at 11:52 am

        • Yes! it seems the same case. Tell their customer care the same thing that you are not able to access via pps3g APN. Probably they will send you new settings or might be something with your plan itself that they may mention.

          Nitish Kumar

          August 13, 2010 at 12:10 pm

        • Basically they are providing 3g through APN mtnlppsdel so you don’t need any other APN , you can check by speed and bandwidth provided to you, 2g service support only around 144 kbps and 3g service support 2Mbps bandwidth and minimum 256kbps speed on your phone/pc , i am using 3g on my phone Nokia2730c but in my case my phone support only around 384kbps bandwidth it is showing on my pc network when i connect to internet through my phone.

  69. I can not conect it with mtnlppsmum apn on my lappy.
    its not connecting via pc suite also.

    But after searching, i tried to connect it via ‘gprsppsmum’. And volia, its connected now.

    But main thing is that, i am not getting enough speed on pc. My max downloading speed is 45KBps with idm.

    I am using 5230 with umts only mode. I’ve tried it in many places.

    Is there any solution for this? Oe any apn for 3g?
    fyi. pps3g is also not working.

    Dhruv

    November 20, 2010 at 11:51 am

    • Mate, the download speed you get is in fact 1/8 of the speed mentioned. Its difference of bits and bytes. Means if we are talking about 1.6 mbps then download speed you get via IDM etc will be around 200 kbps. Means 45 kbps going around 512 kbps for you.

      You must test your connection again speedtest.net That will clear the confusion. It also depends on what you downloading and from where you downloading. If they have restricted their upload speeds, then you can not gain more.

      Next, your set has 3.6 HSDPA but 3.5 mpbs of speed that come through 3.5G is spread over a GSM cell and shared among all the users connected to the same cell. That explains lower speeds at some places.

    • The settings you might have got must be wap only that is MTNL GPRS, you need to configure and set as default the HSPDA settings that should go by APN “pps3g”.

      Check the comments given above for complete settings.

      Nitish Kumar

      January 12, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    • In place of PPSHSPDA, try only pps3g.
      Name and APN both should be pps3g.

      Name is only significant for the user purpose, while the APN plays the main role.

          Then it will run only 3G not 2G, though will drain battery as 3G does.

          If your Internet will be working then, it has 3G activated and you have settings.

          If Internet doesn’t work, then you need to get the setting or manually create the settings

          That will be something like

    • Hi Nitish,
      Thanks for playing the role of customer support to numerous MTNL customers. Infact MTNL top bosses should acknowledge your endeavour.
      Dear friend I too have been facing an issue with my 3G Jadoo prepaid datacard.A few days back my SONY Vaio laptop’s BIOS got infected with a virus, hence that went for a service at a Sony service centre. Now when I started using my Vaio with the same old MTNL 3G datacard it’s getting connected to net through the default MTNL Prepaid profile that has ‘gprsppsdel’ as the APN and hence obviously I am getting connected via gprs and not the 3G.
      Even after creating a new profile using the 3G APN settings mtnl/*99#/mtnl123/ppshsdpa as advised by you, I am not getting connected and receiving the message ‘The PPP link protocol was terminated.’
      Could there be an issue with my recently serviced laptop (modem settings). Please advise and oblige.
