  63. rakhesh says:

    Hi saxena, I have the ST10 tab and bought reliance netconnect+ and got stuck at APN section, as there is no save button. after 15days waiting today I was able to connect to net. what i did is tried editing the default MTS apn provided and pressed back button and it got disappeared. No APN. after that I tried adding new APN, for reliance, but I started entering data from below, MCC 406 and MNC 89(defalut one), then apn #777 and last name=Reliance and pressed the back button(the curved arrow at left side) and voila, it showed apn reliance without any save message, and dongle got detected from just full signal bars to full signal bars with a 3G on top of it, and internet was working.. Please try this for your tab before going for any formatting or restoring. My tab is not tinkered nor rooted. Hope you will find this useful.

  64. rakhesh says:

    reliance accespoint "Name" can be anything. for easy recognition keep Reliance as name then use apn as #777. in goa MCC as 406 works and MNC can be xx ie any two digit number. I kept the default 89 in my tab. Please try this. also if you dont find a save button dont panic, back button works as a saving button if you have a empty APN list and trying to add a new APN.
    Hope this helps.

  65. shobha says:

    i have micromax funbook infinity tab p275 and i bought new mts blaze 3g dongle AC2787, i done apn setting but still i cant find any signal and as u say thangaraju ji i didnt get any notification of 3g dongel active please help me how to active 3g dongel its very urgent if i cant i lost my money please help me to connect it with my tab
