MTN Nigeria's GPRS

For the past few days I have noticed MTN's GPRS presence on my set(Sagem Myx-5m), I hope I am not mistaken about it, please if you have a GPRS enabled phone and use MTN, kindly activate your GPRS and switch your phone off and back on, lets have mess if the GPRS signal stays on, I will be glad to get some configuration settings if MTN is now on GPRS.

It has being tested, the test has been going on for a while(but its mainly by the members of the MTN team)....Just hope it comes up soon

Mtn Gprs? I'll be stunned if it actually is true, guess I have to start looking out for it on my dad's phone.

That's good, with the new gist of Vmobile coming up soon with it, it is a good development if all could have it because competition will make each of them [B]SIT UP![/B]

This is good.

The more, the merrier, the cheaper.

Nice tip, Angelgirl. If you've noticed the GPRS, please share your experiences here. If this is true, then some of us who have abandoned the MTN network might decide to come back!
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by Angelgirl(f): 2:47pm On May 31, 2005
I noticed the GPRS presence is only when am at work in Victoria Island, so i guess allenpowered is right about the test going on within the MTN Team.

keep dreaming about MTN GPRS..........

They have EDGE in SA and only care about milking Nigerians
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by debugger(m): 10:24am On Jun 14, 2005
I was reacting about a posted topic on MTN GPRS.

I said "it's a mirage. MTN is still not real to Nigeria." I tried there IP address but could not log in from my server.

Let's not believe lies and I will advice NCC to make sure before any of this mobile companies say anything to Nigeria they should be fully sure of themselves before airing out.

I hate lies.

Hi all,
Plz listen to this local announcement, plz be inform that MTN is usin the so-called gprs to cheat and steal ppls money, i experience a drastic change in my account after tryin to connect to mtn wap.

i load mtn 750 vocher, i decide to try the wap stuff, in my set it showed dialing at first, after a while it showed connectin and later a msg "Server Not Responding". i then exited from wap,

after a while i try sendin an sms to a friend and recieve a msg that my previous sms could not be deliever reason: insufficient credit. i check my balance it was 0.25.

u see how mtn can eat ppl hard earn money within a second.

Bleep MTN, Bleep MTN wap, Bleep MTN managers

Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by Angelgirl(f): 8:07am On Jun 20, 2005
Sorry debugger, what you used to connect MTN Wap was the dial up access through mtech, and not MTN GPRS, Its always expensive to use it, the last time i tried it, i didnt get any data downloaded, i lost N300. MTN has not announced any GPRS yet, i think the MTN technical team are still carrying out test on it, thats why i notice GPRS presence each time am in Victoria Island near MTN Head Office.
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by Vicuzo(m): 12:05pm On Jul 22, 2005
i think its a welcome development,i hear by 2006 they will be a 3G NETWORK grin
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by delarontus(f): 2:02pm On Jul 22, 2005
Its a 2.5G they are planning.
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by geek(m): 4:10pm On Jul 22, 2005
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by Vicuzo(m): 10:38am On Jul 23, 2005
yeah it's going to be 3G...
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by dre901(m): 5:36pm On Aug 02, 2005
Which gprs for mtn.
well the only networks wit gprs are globacom and mtel
vmobile is using what u call CSD- circuit switch data and that is what mtn is using as well.
u only get connected by dailing before it connects which is more expensive.
they need to upgrade to 2.5g or 3g before gprs can be fully functional.
And finally, Angle eye
The GPRS you saw on ur sagem fone was the one from glo or mtel becos it picks any network dat has gprs on it.which is glo or mtel.Dats one of the beauty of a sagem fone.

Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by whocares: 1:26pm On Aug 04, 2005
Dre901, do not make things up as you go along rolleyes rolleyes rolleyes rolleyes rolleyes

"The GPRS you saw on your sagem fone was the one from glo or mtel because it picks any network that has gprs on it.which is glo or mtel.Dats one of the beauty of a sagem fone."

Your above statement is completely UNTRUE.
There is no in-country GSM network roaming in Nigeria (or anywhere else in the world for that matter), so it is impossible to pick up a signal from another network; be it voice or GPRS coverage.
Any network that allows that will be completely daft.

So if Angel eyes can see GPRS signal on the MTN phone, then that means MTN has GPRS.
The fact that they haven't told you about it, doesn't mean it's not there.

Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by dre901(m): 12:03pm On Aug 05, 2005
Who cares? Maybe I need to educate on some things.

I am currently in Jalingo and as I write this there is no Globacom there but the other networks are working well.
I use a Sagem Myx3-2 and it is GPRS-enabled. Currently in jalingo, only MTEL has GPRS nationwide and it appears on my phone constantly. But once i leave any mtel region, the GPRS signal disappears. Sorry MTN are just crooks and as I said earlier they need to upgrade to 2.5g or 3g before they can use GPRS.
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by sammyrays: 3:03pm On Aug 08, 2005
Well who cares on GPRS lets all have good quality service on the most important which is VOICE and SMS services before all these value added services. These are ways of scamming us, with GPRS, FAX, EMAIL and all sorts.
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by Seun(m): 12:19am On Aug 09, 2005
Nice observation, sammyrays. Welcome to the Nairaland Forum!
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by obong(m): 3:47am On Aug 09, 2005

Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by hotangel2(f): 4:51am On Aug 09, 2005
Obong, i guess MTN is bleeped up. Uhmm MTN, Mtel, GLo, Vmobile.. who cares?? I use Sprint pcs. grin grin Everything is good on it.

Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by obong(m): 5:34am On Aug 09, 2005

Mufasa, is this a joke?
I tried to open the page but it was not opening.

Can I open the www.mtnonline.com to get it?

Is it possible that way?
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by shockreaction(m): 8:22pm On Aug 18, 2005
I was getting GPRS service in Festac on my MTN line a while back, but now I don't get any. Bummer! Just when there's the chance to test it out! Anyways, I just guess I'll wait and see what happens...

UPDATE: Nope, doesn't work. I've got the GPRS icon on my phone now (MTN line) and it's not connecting. Been trying since 4am. It's 6:30am now.
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by Angelgirl(f): 11:19am On Aug 19, 2005
Please i would like to know how many people has tested it working, and the model of phone used, i have tried also with the above settings and still no success, i use Sagem Myx5m, and it has worked well with Glo's Gprs.
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by Seun(m): 10:17pm On Aug 19, 2005
Only mufasa, it seems. Perhaps the MTN people discovered our site and changed the settings?
Re: MTN Nigeria GPRS [Includes Configuration Settings] by mamba(m): 7:39pm On Aug 20, 2005
Hello boyz & girlz, i've tried the settings & it's working on my sisters 0803 line, i'm posting this via my p910i with my sisters MTN!! enjoy!!
