iPhone Internet (EDGE/GPRS) settings (telenor, ufone, warid, mobilink – Pakistan)

I have compiled the gprs/edge settings for networks in Pakistan.

(If you are looking for MMS settings for cellular networks in Pakistan – ufone, warid, mobilink gsm, telenor, zong) then follow to this page: http://nabtron.com/mms-settings-for-pakistan-cellular-networks-warid-ufone-mobilink-zong-telenor-tested-on-iphone-3g-3-0/ ).

These are the settings for setting up gprs/edge on iphone 2g/3g for Pakistan cellular networks including : telenor, ufone, warid and mobilink.

Note: It’s recommended to restart your cell / iPhone after entering the gprs/edge internet settings before using them. Also if internet settings are not activated on your sim before, you might need to call the service center to activate them for the first time.

If you feel any difficulty in setting up any network gprs/edge kindly let me know. If these settings work for you, please leave a comment. That will show if these settings are correct and valid.

    1. can you please check and state which options did u see when you goto:

      Iphone > settings > general > network

    2. Go to settings, then general, if you dont find ‘cellular data network’, just take out the sim card, and then insert it back, ‘cellular data network’ will pop up :)

  1. Im running OS 3.0.1 on Iphone 3GS.
    Iphone > settings > general > network
    There are following options only
    1. Enable 3G (on/off)
    2. Data Roaming (on/off)
    3.Internet Tethering (on/off)
    4.VPN (Set Configuration)
    4. Wi-Fi (on/off)

    Any advice please?


    1. Umar: which sim are you using?

      also: insert any other network sim, and goto the same settings location, if you can find the apn tab there, click on it, take out ur current sim (without closing the current settings window) and then edit the settings for that service provider.

      Let me know if this was of any help.

    1. the cost depends upon your type of connection.

      Usual price for prepaid sims is 15 rupees per 1mb data transfer.

      For post paid, the prices are variable like 500 rs per month or 1000 rs per month

  2. I have Warid, and I’m brining an unlocked iphone from Canada. Also I upload a card whenever I run out of minutes.
    500-1000 a month??!! thats a lot!!!

    I can’t really find a full time wireless connection here in Pakistan, so do I convert it to edge?

    And how do I contact warid, to get the internet.

    Thanks a lot man.

  3. one thing to note, 3g connectivity is being introduced in Pakistan within few months . 4 companies have been given licence last month for launching 3g service in pakistan.

    secondly, the best option if you want to use internet a lot, is to get zong prepaid, they give you internet for 500rs per month unlimited (others give such offers on post paid only)

    other network give at around 500rs per month. Only telenor (as far as i know) charges 1000 on post paid internet package, because they give EDGE not GPRS which is faster than gprs.

    How to contact them? If its prepaid connection, then you just need to enter the values for the apn and login stated on this page above. If its post paid, then you can get the values from their service center (but i hope they are the same for post paid too . but i will confirm and update)

    you can easily contact the service center number to know about the package details or visit the franchise for details.

  4. Ufff, its that expensive to keep an iphone in Pakistan.

    One more question… can’t you just contact the service center and tell them to activate internet for you, like you do on normal phones, and the internet on the iphone would work.??

    Thanks a lot for your help man, very helpful blog.

  5. To tell you the truth this is really confusing, I though I would just bring an unlocked iphone 3gS from canada and contact warid, get the normal internet as you do on other phone, 5rupees per min. and it would work. Please kindly answer the question i wrote before.

  6. it will work like that

    i am not sure if warid still have 5 rupee per hour package, but if it does have, the package is same for iphone too

  7. thank you for appreciating, and you are always welcome to contact me anytime for any issues.

    You can contact directly by the contact us page linked in the top right menu.

  8. Ufone MMS setting for Iphone 3G, OS 3.0

    Tested and working

    +92 333 1234567

    and not like 0333 1234567

    there you have it.

    1. bro its like this, ive a ufone number, n an iphone 3g, os 3.0.1…ive entered all the above mentioned settings, restarted as advised, n tried at a spot where there were full signals n stuff, made sure the image was less than 100kb, gprs is working fine…however the mms still is nt sending… can it be tht ive a 0300 number ported in to ufone? mite this be the reason? but mms used to work before on ma N73, but it doesnt nw… help me out here…

        1. Nabeel, where can i get the cracked version/full version of swirlymms? I just downloaded it from cydia. They ask for a licence too, i dont know if it will work fine without license (havent tried it yet).
          Besides, I dont have any settings of mms on iphone but when i opened swirlymms it auto-detected the settings of ufone mms. Do i need to enter the settings in iphone settings too?

          1. why you want to use swirty Musavir?

            and yes I can get you swirly though, but you don’t need it!

            above mentioned settings are working perfectly

  9. let me give u some details first. i am running 3.0.1 and i downloaded the swirlymms app. and then i added those ufone settings to the phone. so now there is a a Lil camera icon next to the text bar. and when i try to send a pic it doesn’t go. this sign comes in red right next to it !

    1. (i am using swirlymms too)
      answer this please:

      1. swirly mms is registered or trial version / cracked?

      2. you dont need to enter mms settings in it , you have to enter these settings for the network in iphone settings section, not swirlymms, did u enter these settings in the iphone settings section, and then autodetect mms settings in swirly?

  10. well u know what my bad. i just double checked i dont have swirly mms. can u exactly tell me how to do the whole thing from scratch. all i have right now is the settings in the network area and the settings for iphone.

  11. OK- getting desperate here…tried everything: Telenor APN settings same as you suggest, but cannot get the cellular data network recognised! Cant send sms or connect to any edge/gprs service (have the E symbol showing).
    I roam worldwide quite regularly, so am used to switching sims and networks. have been able to use Telenor OK previously, but this is the first time with iPhone 3gs.
    Any ideas? Thanks

    1. Is your iPhone gprs/edge is not working with telenor only?

      One reason is, that with new iphone jailbreak and unlock tools, they turn off egde from within the iPhone. Although it shows E on top, but it is not working in fact.

      Please install SBSettings via cydia or other way and enable edge from within it. Also make sure that ssh is enabled in same settings.

      Let me know if you feel any difficulty in using sbsettings or any other issue.

  12. Nabeel bhai u hv nt rplied to Sharjeel’s request. . .i also wanna know hw to activate mms on iphone using Swirly mms. . .

  13. @Ahad and @Sharjeel bro!

    I am sorry for missing his comment, @Ahad, thanks for reminding me

    You both tell me, do you have swirlymms on your iphone? (full versions not trial)

    if not, then upgrade it, and lemme know whats your firmware version? 2.2? or 3.x series?

  14. Nabeel bhai my firmware is 3.0. . . and i cud nt download swirly mms frm Cydia or itunes . . .is there any other way to get it?

  15. @Ahad, please tell me your email address so that i can get in touch with you personally. (i will remove it from here once i check it)

  16. Hey yaar, I have another question, for Warid there’s a GPRS bucket for prepaid users, let’s say I get that, it’s 10MB in 30 rupees, would it work for my iPhone?? And what do I change the settings to?? Do I still write the Apn:waif thing and what else??

    Please reply back, thanks man!!

    1. Hello Muffy,

      Regarding warid gprs bucket, they charge 10 Rupees per 10mb on my package and i don’t have to do any further settings other than usual gprs/edge settings. So just simply setup the Gprs/edge settings for iPhone with the warid Pakistan settings as provided above, and any package will work on it without any further changes.

      Regarding Data roaming: Keep it off (if you are using it inside Pakistan)

  17. if you want to browse through google and check email etc, then its not very much expensive. Browsing sites with heavy images will cost you alot and ofcourse, watching videos.

    If you are planning to use internet for videos and general browsing then get the monthly internet packages from any cellular network provider.

    1. you get 10mb for 30rs by sending msg (blank one will work too) at 3282 and you will receive a confirmation message from warid service.

  18. hey bro i have tried the settings from your website aswell as from the ufone customer help center but i just cant seem to get it working even though my iphone 3g has a mms option which gets activated when you enter proxy in mms settings my gprs is working but mms arnt can you lemme know whats wrong and if i need to use some application can you tell me where to find i’ll appreciate it !

  19. hi,, i am using blackberry .. i was wondering if i could use internet on my blackberry without activating blackberry services.. if any1 has any idea about it if it works or not?

  20. Unlike all the other people, my problem is the opposite. i can not turn the egde ‘off’ on my iphone 3gs using a telenor sim. Doesnt matter if i enter wrong apn in the settings or turn the edge off using bossprefs, my credit is still deducted everytime i open mail or any other app that uses egde. Does anyone else have the same problem? if so what is the solution?

    1. ofcourse if you open the application that uses edge your credit will be deducted!

      If you want to turn off edge on your iPhone there is a way by installing sbsettings and then turning off edge in it. (you need jailbroken iphone for that)

      1. I am using SBsettings and have the edge turned off. What happens after that is that whenever i open an application that uses edge, it will try to connect to the internet and then a msg pops up saying that the connection was unsucsessful. but still GPRS charges for one session are charged. :/

  21. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  22. hey nabeel. read alot of ur comments and of the people asking about the problems they had as well… its appreciateable… anyhow i got i phone 2g today n m kinda new to it as i have always been a nokia user… i have activated mms setting n all but mms is still not sent… i mean when i try to send it a progress bar appears on the top of the screen n b4 it is completed a red xclaimation mark appears next to the pic been which i try to send n msg appears ” msg not sent, tap to try again”

    secondly “E” sign on the top of the screen is continously on n eating my credit… how to close the application (if any is) using the gprs….

    i would appreciate if u reply to my email id.. thanx

    1. Hello Qassim,

      Regarding your mms issue, which network are you using? and:
      1. do you have mms activated on your sim?
      2. did you try sending mms from your sim using some other cell phone and it works?
      3. did you try sending mms from iphone using some other sim (which have mms activated already) ?

      Regarding the “E” sign, I will make a post about this soon and let you know how to manage applications, edge, gprs etc on your iPhone.

      1. ya i have mms already activated on my warid sim(the connection m using) and ya i did sent mms on my N82 using the same sim n tried to send the mms from iphone using my telenor sim after changing the mms settings in iphone(changed the settings accordingly for telenor) and ya one more thing, what should be the battery time for 2g on average??? thanx mate…

        1. you tried 1,2,3, what were the results? also about warid sim:
          4. can u receive mms on iphone with warid sim?
          5. you might have to set the limit of the mms image size to 100kb in the settings.

          Battery time is variable, depending upon the use of the iPhone, usual talk time is almost 2 hours, iPod time is 3-4 Hours, Standby time should be greater than 1 day.

  23. hi,
    does anyone know the gprs/edge/mms settings for ANDROID phones?
    i have a HTC dream, also known as G1, and am using ZONG network..

      1. damn yaar, i have been looking everywhere for those settings…
        this android handset is really giving me a hard time….
        am from karachi btw..
        thnx anyways…

          1. this may sound a bit weird, but i guess i’ve worked it out, its funny tht it worked!!
            i just went to the APN settings and entered ZONGINTERNET as the APN, and voila! it worked!! no username/password/proxy etc!!
            but the mms arent working this way, i guess they require a proxy or sumthin…
            share if get your hands on anything…

  24. Hi there,

    I am using i phone 3G. I tried these mms and gprs setting on my iphone but i could not connect to internet and i received the following error.

    “Safari could not connect to internet because its not connected with the internet.

    Please help.


  25. i am using 3gs with firmware 3.12 the problem i am facing is when i get message it comes with the number example +92 321xxxxxx and not with the contact name i solved it with manually way that i insert two numbers in contact like mobile no 321xxxxxxx and same contact with 2nd number like +92 321xxxxxx so it give contact name when i receive call and contact name for receiveing message also . the question is is there any other way to solve this issue becaz the people who got 500 or more contacts its a lot of time consuming job to insert manually both numbers in same contact .
    I found it that message recognizes the contact name with country code and voice call recognize it with just mobile code thnx

    1. Hello Rana,

      well yes there is this issue in iphone that the number has to be exact in order to make it show the contact name unlink other cell phones like nokia and samsung which check only last 7 digits or so of the number and match them to the contact in the list.

      There was a patch for this for the early versions of iPhone OS though. I will research about this and will update you soon :)

  26. i have gotten settings done gor iphone 3g on my iphone but i can only receive mms n cannot send at all!! why is this happening? please i need help!! its urgent!! i’m using mobilink jazz!
    thank u!!

      1. my problem got solved!!=) max image size is set to 300 but it has nothing to do with settings!!!=) its just that when u send a mms in the area where one types the no of the other person the no should be written in this manner!!

        923XX XXXXXXX!! and press the send button n the mms will be sent!!=) i hope this helps other ppl as well!!=) the settings i’m using are:

        settings> general> network> cellular data:

        APN : jazzconnect.mobilink.com
        User Name :blank
        Password : blank

  31. Hi. Bro Im about to buy iPhone 3G. Please asure me that MMS & GPRS will work on it with Warid, ufone etc?
    Please confirm me.

  32. Hello,
    I am using iPhone 2G with 3.1.3FW. I have installed Swirly mms from cydia(Cracked version) and I am using Zong.
    The problem I am facing is that swirly sends mms fine but dosen’t receve it. I have tried every thing but it dosen’t work.
    Can any one help……..

  33. I have ativated MMS settings on my zong number on IPHONE 3gs
    but i dun want edge as all the credit finishes. coz it automatically connects to the internet.
    please tell me how to deactivate E(edge) and keep MMS working on my zong

    1. you can turn off edge when you’re not using mms using sbsettings app through cydia

      other than that, zong has internet package per month, why don’t you use it?

      do you live in Islamabad?

  34. Using a iphone is so much hassling in Pakistan, cannot find the good mobile internet provider. And the service they offer is very expensive. I activate the telenor mobile package for 5MB, it sucks all my balance. Has a same problem with zong.

  35. Set up Mobilink GPRS/Edge on my iPhone 3Gs last week and worked fine till 1:30 PM today. Been on blink since then and receiving messages like “Could not activate cellular data network” or “You are not subscribed to cellular data services”. Complained to Mobilink but please help if you can.

  36. Ignore my earlier post. Mobilink says it is a nationwide problem with their GPRS/Edge which will be rectified by EOD. Let’s hope this works; else, I will bother you again.

  37. Assalamoelaecum
    Very informative thread indeed. I am in Karachi for few weeks with my 3GS on 4.01. I have a Ufone prepaid sim with 1 month Internet only activated and paid for (no mms) still I can’t use Internet in my iPhone despite trying above settings with or without passwords etc any advice please?
    Also do u know if anyone is providing 3G in Karachi if yes what packages.

    1. ws

      The above settings should work for ufone (just confirmed)

      make sure your sim have gprs activated on it and you restart your iphone after entering the settings. Also make sure that edge is enabled in your iPhone sbsettings.

  38. Asalam u alekum

      If yes, then try restarting your phone once you enter these settings!

      1. HI,

        could anyone explain me how i can use iphone 3g or 4g in pakistan with high speed internet?

  49. Very intresting blog indeed.
    I have an iPhone 3G, jailbroken.
    My network is Telenor.
    My GPRS works fine but for some reason my MMS stopped working.
    NOTE: I asked the service centre to activate & guide me through the settings,they did so & it worked perfectly fine until now..
    I tried the above mentioned settings & restarted my phone as well but the MMS wouldn’t work, whereas the gprs is working absolutely fine.

  50. Nabeel

    I have iPhone 4. I am using zong. I can receive MMS but am unable to send MMS. can you resolve my problem. I have used this phone in Saudi Arabia with mobily and it worked perfect with mms.


    1. Shahbaz, try settings maximum message size

      also, try sending the same mms that you receive

      if that fails too, try sending the mms to number like this: 92333xxxxx (without + or 00 before the number)
