Setting up your GPRS/3G for Cell C
Get connected via your service provider's service menu; just follow the simple instructions below:
With the introduction of our new device management service we have discontinued the SMS 0841559911 for "settings" service:Automatic device detection:
Cell C now automatically provisioning and sends settings to new devices added to our network. Whenever a customer connects to our network for the first time or changes their cellphone, Cell C will automatically detect this occurrence, send the customer the GPRS and MMS settings for their cellphone and provision them for GPRS and MMS.
Customers do not need to do anything but save the received settings and then switch off their cellphone and turn it on again after a few seconds.Manual settings and provisioning request:
Complimenting the above we have also added a manual request feature. Customers can now request settings for their cell phone at any time by simply dialing *147# (star147hash). This service performs the following actions:
- confirms the settings request
- delivers the required GPRS settings
- delivers the required MMS settings
- provisions the customer for both GPRS and MMS on our network
After requesting the settings all customers have to do is to save the settings they receive and then switch off their cellphone and turn it on again after a few seconds.
Cell C's device manager service supports most cellphones and new cellphones are continually being added. Where a cellphone is not supported, the requesting customer will receive an SMS message detailing this and will be directed to Cell C's call centre (140).
Should a system error occur during the provisioning process, the requesting customer will receive an SMS message informing them of the problem and requesting that they contact the Cell C's call centre (140).
