I’m currently in India and tried to get GPRS internet access using a mobile phone and a laptop. In fact, I’ve written this blog article in the middle of nowhere between Bikaner and Jaisalmer (Rajasthan).
So, I bought an Indian prepaid SIM card (I’ve choosen Airtel). That was the easy part. With this SIM card I can make calls to Germany for a few rupies (around 10 Rupies=0.15€ per minute).
But getting the GPRS internet access working was a bit more complicated. Airtel SIM cards do not have GPRS activated out-of-the-box.
If you like my work, buy me a beer. (Suggested: 3€ for a beer, or more for more beer ;-) )
