      How is your experience with 1831 data card. I read a lot of complaints from bsnl 3g users about performance of the connection using this card.

    2. mohamed says:

      people says that it doesn’t have voice and video calling features. i read it in the forum below.

      are you able to make video or atleast voice calls with it. bcoz without these features it looks costly.

      You can use software called ‘Mobile Partner’ for voice calling with Huawei UMG1831 3G USB Data Card Modem.

      No idea about the msg you are getting as I never heard about it. BSNL 3g does not have any roaming charges but for calling their may be roaming. Mobile Partner is indeed very easy to use.. just install .. configure..
      Happy Surfing!

      Hi Ritesh,
      At present BSNL does not charges for its data transfers (internet) during roaming. Hence The T Mobile web connect manages has a built in command, it is insisting to conform the status. Happy Roaming.

      Absolutely true is that BSNL 3g speed is very lsow.And i was really suffering with BSNL 3g datacard .And i have to finally stop the bsnl 3g service after number of problems..think before u buy…..

    25. Xander says:

      It’s working with TATA DOCOMO for me.
      Follow the aforementioned steps to add a new profile but with a minor change as given below:
      Fill the ‘Dialled Number’ tab with value *99#
      and the ‘Access Point Name’ as TATA.DOCOMO.INTERNET.
      The access point name will vary with the service provider. Of course for BSNL it is ‘bsnlnet’. We should enter the proper value in this field to get connected.
      Try this and ‘njoy. The speed will depend on the signal strength at your place.

      Can any one help me in connecting this device on Fedora Linux OS?
      I guess it will connect to Linux like it works on a Windows machine

      I purchased an Airtel 3G modem on 14.05.2011 at Trichy.
      I am using the same on my Windows 7 laptop.
      The plan is Pre-Paid 101
      I have recharged it with Rs.101 on 15.06 and 14.07.2011.
      The 3G modem was working well till beginning of July.
      After that, it shows as “Connected”, and the light is Blue and steady, but no pages are loading.
      The same result is obtained with IE8 and also Mozilla Firefox 3.
      Windows reports that Airtel 3G is connected.
      I have contacted the Trichy Airtel sales personnel several times, but they are saying that there is no problem form their side.
      Please suggest how I can proceed further to solve the problem.
