I’ve been getting a lot of messages from readers asking me how they can use their etisalat BlackBerry BIS to connect to the internet on their PCs. I’ve not been able to give a definite answer all these while because I haven’t tried it then. Now I have tried and use it myself.
Using your etisalat BIS on PC involves the following steps:
•GPRS enabled phone
•An Internet Modem
1. Get an etisalat SIM and activate it for Data. A SIM should normally be automatically activated for internet immediately you insert into your phone and on it. If after some period you still don’t get the setting sent to you. Push etisalat Data Settings to your Phone.
If you already have a SIM you have been using to browse, you don’t need this step. Just proceed to step two.
2. Now that your SIM is internet ready, load a recharge card of N100 to your phone and subscribe to etisalat daily Blackberry voice plan. You can use the weekly or monthly plan. I just want to test with this first.
You can subscribe to etisalat daily Blackberry voice plan by dialing *449*3*2# with N100 on your phone. You can use any phone to subscribe. It doesn’t have to be a Blackberry.
Wait till you get a etisalat SMS that your subscription is successful.
3. Remove the etisalat SIM and insert into you Internet Modem. Connect your modem to your PC and create a new settings profile on your modem with the following information:
Profile name: CYNAMIX.NET (You can use anything)
ID/Username: leave empty
Password: leave empty
Primary DNS: 126.96.36.199
Alternate DNS: 188.8.131.52
Save, select as the Default Setting and Connect to the Internet.
4. Now open your browser and use the following IP and Port:
Save it and you are almost done.
Now type www.cynamix.net in the address and launch it. What do you see? It’s working! Lol
You can now visit any website of your choice and download as you want but don’t forget to drop you testimony here first that it’s working for you!
HERE IS AN UPDATE GUYS:
After you have used it with the IP for some days, you can remove the IP and Port from the browser and use “Automatically detect Proxy”. This way, you can open https (secure) sites.
HOPE THIS HELPS!
