In some cases recieved settings may not work for your particular mobile handset model.In case you don’t get the settings at all or settings recieved do not work, I will suggest you to simply call the customer Care of your network provider and ask for GPRS settings.They will send the correct settings for your particular mobile handset model.
So go ahead and browse the internet from your mobile phone on the move.
