For BPL aka LOOP mobile subscribers, surfing the internet over their mobiles is free [at least for 1 year after activation]. The settings below are the tried and tested as on April 2009. Use these settings in your connections settings where you have to define a new access point name [APN]. Once you have successfully established the WAP connection after going through the below mentioned settings, you can tether the phone to your PC and surf net on it!! Just note that whichever browser you use, in its connection settings put
PROXY Server Address: 10.0.0.10

Thus you can use you free BPL WAP service as unlimited Internet service for your Computer/PC.
I found out that some of you are having problems connecting to the Internet with the above method,So here is one more method for you.
Step 1: Go to Control Panel >> Network Places and Create a Dial up connection, using your Mobile.
Step 2: When being asked about the UserName and Password, Type +91…(your BPL Phone number) and Password as bplmmsc
Step 3: Keep the Dialling number as *99# and press Connect.
For Samsung Corby users, the settings are a bit different. Please check the comments posted below by ‘Ashay’ who has kindly posted working settings for Corby users.
If you find any phones in which these settings don’t work outright and if you have managed to make them work, please post it below in the comments below. Thanks. Cheers.
