    You might need to call your service provider and ask them about the APN; Username and password for DATA PLAN
    Once you have them you would need to go to
    Settings >> Network >> EDGE >> and enter the above info.
    Then you will be able to surf the net via GPRS.

    P.S. This can be a costly affair, so check out the data plan and subscribe to an appropriate plan.

    Thank you vivek for your immediate reply. My service provider given me a APN. but they didnt give username and password.

    only APN info is enough to connect to GPRS?

    i am using office mobile unlimited from airtel (it's gprs but yea i think edge is also the same only faster i guess) and the settings are as follows:

    Step 1
    settings>general>network>EDGE
    APN: airtelgprs.com
    Username: Leave Blank
    Password: Leave Blank

    Step 2
    settings>general>network>VPN>SETTINGS
    Tap PPTP
    Server: airtelgprs.com
    Account: 202.056.231.117
    Password: Leave as is
    Encryption: Leave as is
    Proxy: Leave in OFF state
    in fact nothing else to do in this section

    That's it, then i waited for the airtel people to activate it..
    so the settings won't help unless you call em n ask for the activation..

    But it's not fast enough, so thinking of upgrading to their edge offer sometime..

    Hey,

    Ive tried to enable gprs settings on my iphone 3gs jailbroken and unlocked 3.1.4 version.

    i do not have the cellular network tab in my settings > general > network

    ive tried changing my gprs settings using Http://unlockit.co.nz

    this doesnt seem to work either...

    any advice??

    Thanx

    Build a carrier bundle for apn, why all this hard work?
    Use this for generating the ipcc file (you can make a custom logo btw) and than load it to your phone via itunes.
