Qtel's settings for mobile internet?

I cant seem to access the internet through my Iphone. I've called 111 and they gave me the settings which would be:
General>Networks>Cellular Data Network>APN:gprs.qtel

Still no signs of getting the internet going. Anyone else have this problem with Iphone? I'm on Shary value pack btw if that info helps.

@smoke: i had exactly the same problem the other day, it shows 3G but no data.
changed to EDGE still the same no IP address from QTEL.
I tried so many diff things, Reset all network settings Everything. Did a search and found that other people have same problem since 4.3 update. They gave some workarounds but alas that did not work.
Then I just gave up, towards the end of the day around 15:00 it just started working again, without me doing anything. I suspect its a QTel issue, but as usual they are no help.
Mines working fine again.

username - gprs
password - gprs

it takes some time for them to start working.

Hey gore, i'm still on the 4.2 version and have not updated as yet. May be it will take some time as you said. will wait and see. Thanks.

smoke

isale are you sure there is a username and password? coz the woman never said anything about it. will give it a shot.

QTEL is difficult but Vodafone has it's settings on their website. It helped me on my iPhone w/ Vodafone sim.

s_isale

gprs.qtel has got a username and password.
Have those settings on my phone as well. Sometimes it takes hours to get connected, sometimes its fast

gore1876

there is no username and password.
APN : gprs.qtel
Thats it.
@smoke make sure you fully reboot your device once you enter the APN details.

i disagree with you there, if you SMS the word "ALL" to 92072, they will send you all the info needed and no password is listed.
Are you on shary or prepaid?

I am on Shahry.
What I have posted are the settings on my phone. Earlier I had problems when username and password was left blank.

gore1876

@s_isale then SMS the word "ALL" to 92072 and you should get the same as my above post.
Im a BES admin for a large company and work with BB`s, iphones ect all day have had these issues before.

smoke

Guys i'm on the Qr. 130 value package that has the 50mb internet package included. Gore is right there is no username and password for the APN setting just gprs.qtel
I cant restart my phone right now coz of the whole "Thou shall not do illegal stuff to iphone" where i need certain apps to restart the phone and have not had time to work around that :P will do it at home and see.

s_isale

something somewhere is amiss with regards to qtel.

smoke

I think i should get a voda number as well :P

gore1876

@s_isale is also correct, if you do not have a data plan (Shary Value Pack) then yes you need user and pass, but your bill should be quite high due to data charges. If you have the data plan then no user or pass needed.
@smoke the fix for your problem has been out for sometime now.
You can also just turn flight mode on for a few seconds and then off again that should do the same thing as rebooting.

smoke

Gore i know but like i said haven't had the time to go about doing it :( Did the flight mode thing still no changes, 3G turn on, Cellular data on, data roaming on as well. Getting 'Qat-Qtel' on top where the service provider name used to be just 'Qtel'.

gore1876

hmmmm, then same issue as my first post.
Patience.............. :)

s_isale

Gore - I use a shahry value pack of 130.
Thing is sometimes it works without username and password and sometimes it works with username and password. That is what I have seen with different colleagues of mine

jpa

Turn ur avatar to the other side & connect again.

"sent using Qtel mobile connection"

smoke

lol jpa think i should i've received a lot of complaints from users about neck pain.

smoke

Ok so finally after waiting all this time, i called Qtel again, after taking all my details she advices me to take my phone to any mobile shop and get it checked. HMMMMM Thanks Qtel support you are the best.

Rizks

smoke
