Access Free Airtel GPRS using TeaShark Browser

Important Update: Comments on this posts are closed. Read FAQ section below, where all valid questions are already answered!

TeaShark, a mobile browser like Opera Mini, allow you to access Airtel GPRS for FREE. Shockingly it has nothing to do with modifying any Airtel settings or any kind of hack. I am clueless about how its working! I tested it personally throughout the week but I haven’t been charged a single penny.

Here is how I used this…

  • Download TeaShark v. 312. Its free and being JAR file it can be installed on most handsets.
  • Open it from your mobile and select AirTel Live as access point.
  • That’s it! Open any site from TeaShark and you won’t be charged anything.

Note for the first time, when TeaShark starts, it may take more than one minute to initialize. Also this one time initialization may fail many times. But don’t loose your heart! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are some famous sites’ mobile version...

As a first post at Devils Workshop, I wrote about free Airtel GPRS two years ago. This is much different that earlier trick. As of now, this trick is limited to handsets only. The earlier one used to work even from PC.

The whole thing seems a fortunate coincidence for mobile users and unfortunate one for network operators. This trick cannot be termed illegal as you are not cracking any software or modifying any configuration. For the same reason, I think this will take longer to get rectified.

Please keep in mind that AirTel may charge you all of a sudden in future of this free ride. So please use it at your own risk! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Q. Error: โ€œSubscribe to Packet Data Firstโ€

Ans: This means you need to activate AirTel Live service which is free. Contact customer care to get it activated. Also select only AirTel Live as access point when prompted by TeaShark.

Q. TeaShark stuck at blank screen.

Ans: New version of TeaShark has some problems. Please download one using link given below.

Q. Will this work on my mobile?

Ans: Most probably YES, as this is java java applications and most good handsets supports java applications.

Q. Its not working…

Ans: Sorry. We can’t do anything then for you. I have personally seen this hack working in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Delhi while it didn’t work for me in Rajasthan.

Thanks for positive feedback… ๐Ÿ™‚

Anant June 20, 2008

Wow….it wrks…..grt work yaar!!!

Pranav Gupta June 20, 2008

Hey Rahul…Its really gr8 to see u write on da topic of mobiles again….. ๐Ÿ™‚

it gonna be gr8 if u wil touch da topic of mobiles more often….

Sm tym bak u reviewed sm torrent search engines & those were realy gr8

similarly I also want u to review websites for downloading songs… & plz emphasise on websites providing non-rapidshare links {as rapidshare links cant be used to download on mobile phones due to that weird ‘wait to download’ thing in free accounts}

personally i lyk

& i wld also lyk to recommend some softwares that gonna be really useful for every1 who use their mobile phones for surfing…

1-> ucweb {} its a gr8 application for downloading on multimedia phones as most of them have under performing internal browsers which cant download large files…
It has a gr8 download manager which supports upto 9 downloads at a time & also supports broken downloads….

2-> sym torrent {}
its a torret downloader…….
Must give it a try……

In de end..I wil once again request rahul to write about mobile apps more often & if possible do include dese 2 apps in ur post….. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚

Rahul Bansal June 20, 2008

Thanks for nice suggestion buddy… ๐Ÿ™‚

Actually I am working parallelly with so many projects and topics that its getting hard to focus on any one of them… ๐Ÿ™

Vivek June 22, 2008

Great thing yaar this is really cool…i am a post paid customer of airtel and i hope i will not get a shock of
my life when i get the bill at the end of the month[:D]

Rahul Bansal June 24, 2008

Hope you wont get a shock.
But use carefully atleast for first month and of course on your own risk… ๐Ÿ˜‰

but it failed ……

i tried many times ….. but failed ……..

now when i open it , only a whit screen comes , nothing is loaded … what 2 do ……… help ……….. !!!

Rahul Bansal June 27, 2008

You need to activate Airtel Live First which is FREE.
Call customer care (121) to do so.

Once its activated, start TeaShark and select access point Airetl-Live when asked.

Thanks Vivek for clearing doubts about 6233… ๐Ÿ™‚

I am aware of cumbersome initialization part, but its compulsory. ๐Ÿ™
Whenever white screen comes, restart your phone.
If you still see white screen, reinstall TeaShark and while reinstalling if your phone ask to clear out earlier data/settings say YES.

deepak June 27, 2008

wen i open tshark…
t initialistn part cums…..

i am using k750 mobile.can any body choose the teashark to supports my mob.please tell me the link to download it…please help

Rahul Bansal June 29, 2008

No setting need to be modified. And I said earlier as initialization part is toughest one, keep trying. Thats all we can do. It took 2 days more than 50 retries and 8-10 re-installation for my friend to get it(teashark) work

Thanks for positive comment Johnson…

Teashark is java(J2ME) based, so it will work on all java enabled handset. And k750 is java enabled. ๐Ÿ™‚

Pravesh July 2, 2008


Can I use Airtel Live on HTC Touch p3452,

Nitz July 2, 2008

Gopichand Pai July 2, 2008

As per Airtel customer care, since, HTC Touch p3452 has windows mobile OS, you can’t use Airtel live.

jasir javaz July 3, 2008

i cant use tat on my Nokia 6233… i already tried these all settings… But i cant.. i think d pbm is with the access point.. old airtel settings can help this.. But the new settings willnot support this.. for more details delete ur all settings.. then redownload it frm Airtel… i think it cant work

Rahul Bansal July 3, 2008

Read Gopichand’s comment for answer. ๐Ÿ™‚

At the time of reinstallation, you may be asked to overwrite earlier data. Say YES at that point. Older configuration files must be cleaned.

Thanks for answering Pravesh comment. ๐Ÿ™‚

TeaShark works on 6233 as mentioned in above comments.
Also you no need to modify any setting as mentioned in post.

jobin July 3, 2008

i downloaded tea shark twice using airtel live … it costs rs.2

i also downloaded from internet to pc and transfered to mobile ……..

but every time intialisation is failed …

same as nitz’s problem…….

i reinstalled many times,but no way ……….

i think airtel had blocked it …….

i’m now using ucweb; but it costs a few .. any way to make it also free ……. ??

Bzoy July 4, 2008

it is using the google server as proxy for free surfing, this is not legal

Pranav Gupta July 4, 2008

Hi all….
I downloaded teashark on my nokia 3230 & it was running smoothly but by mistake i uninstalled it… ๐Ÿ™
den i reinstalled it a thousand times but it hangs,a white screen appears or it give error msgs….

But here is something to be happy…

i think this 1 is some another version of teashark & its running without any fuss….
Jus give it a try….

Piyush July 4, 2008

Plz give me solution . Hi i m using nokia 3230 i will download teashark many but it dosn’t work. When i open teashark then a white screen appear. If any one have solution plz tel me

Rahul Bansal July 4, 2008

Why download TeaShark using Airtel Live.
Download it via PC and send it to Mobile.
Also check Pranav’s comment for better TeaShark links. I hope it will help. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for alternate links… ๐Ÿ™‚
I will add them in post.

I am not getting your point.
First no matter what TeaShark uses, any data transfer should be charged naturally. So problem is in Airtels tracking system.
Next even if TeaShark is doing some illegal stuff, they will face consequences!

Check alternate TeaShark download link in Pranav’s Comment. Also added it to post. ๐Ÿ™‚

Pranav Gupta July 4, 2008

For all those who r not able to download teashark…

Give dis a try…

dis 1 is mod. version of opera mini nd it has got a lot of features….

But u wil be charged for gprs unlike teashark….

Stil its worth buying….

Rahul Bansal July 6, 2008

thanks buddy for alternate links… ๐Ÿ™‚
I am planning to add comment edit feature in new theme thats why delay…. ๐Ÿ™

Pranav Gupta July 4, 2008

Oops….I meant ‘trying’ not ‘buying’….Its absolutely free….

What abt that comment editing feature Rahul…?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

lofty July 5, 2008

hey,is there anyone who can tell me free airtel gprs proxy for Chandigarh(punjab).
I m fed up of fake proxies,plz help.
Plz how can i open orkut thru NOP.
Coz no browser is working gud.
Like opera only show scraps nt d full page..

Pranav Gupta July 5, 2008

Hey rahul can u plz figure out a way to open orkut {standard version} on opera mini..As nowadays ,even if is entered , mobile orkut {} opens….
I even tried sm proxies given on ur blog , but again mobile orkut appears….

1 way to access standard version is via t9space..รŸut many features cant be accessed over there….

Also try da mod version of Opera Mini..Its has got hel lot of features..But connection is a lil bit slow….

Rahul Bansal July 6, 2008

I am aware of that prob. Will post about solution soon.

Anjali July 5, 2008

haiii plz ……i wnt to knw that whether teashark works on motorolla L6…..

Rahul Bansal July 6, 2008

Reyas July 7, 2008

I am trying this for last 1 week and not able to access on my mobile(Nokia 5310). I have changed the settings, but no use. After that I tried the same on my friends N73, it is working fine. I think there are problems in java phones of Nokia. In N73 and all that type of phones, it will ask the setting to be used for browsing where as for other nokia phones, it will not ask and ends up in error.

Anas July 8, 2008

jasir javaz T July 8, 2008


Finally i got the solution for java network support problem in nokia mobiles.. If u not gettin support, take tat cell, go to nokia care , nd try to reinstall wit new software.. main problem is wit the configuration settings.. nokia giv some inbuilt settings for all network operaters in each country.. if u delete tat , ur java software doesn’t giv network support.

NB: aftr d reinstallation check configuration settings in ur mobile … and make sure tat some inbuilt settings are there for ur network provider

Then install it and switch off your phone and turn it on.
Now open the’s done….

it works in my case…

arun k September 2, 2008

Hey Brothers…
I am using Nokia N72 mobile.
I tried Teashark for a while..Usually i was able to use it then came the problems..That’s after i quit the application and then if i try to open it it shows only a blank white screen…without any knowledge i used to uninstall it and reinstall it.
Then Atlast i Found an Answer

If u are using any File Explorers then u can also solve it….

Go to c:> drive
===>system==>midlets==>then the folder to which tea shark was installed…then delete a file named “”””rms.db”””…the restart the application..u can use it now

chathz September 11, 2008

to avoid the infamous initialization problem

use teashark alpha instead of now available beta. It requires no initialisation and will work fine in almost all java and aymbian handsets

download alpha if required

Download link:

post comments and reply

chathz September 11, 2008

@laxmikanth: are you using airtel?? if then is airtel live active on your no.

If problem still persists try using alpha

how to access free airtel gprs without using teashark browser

chathz September 13, 2008

@ nitz
actually you can open orkut pc version
teashark doesnt support wap sites( mobile version)
asks for file download

It looks like your phone doesnt have enough memory
try turning off images in teashark.

does your set support java application??

vignesh September 13, 2008

wat abt for vodafone users? Do they charge for using this?

chathz September 14, 2008

unfortunately yes
both idea and vodafone charge for any data usage on the phone.
so teashark is just as any ordinary browser on these networks

Anie September 14, 2008

Hey …

riya September 15, 2008

hi i use nokia 3110c. i downloaded teashark. bt we opened it says packet connection data not available. pls help for browsing net for free with teashark

prasath September 15, 2008


i think there r 2 types in tis teashark browser,

after installation

1.the icon comes in green colour ie just like a shark

2. the icon comes like T in red colour

the first one in green colour fails to initialize and connect to net in my nokia E51 but the 2nd one was working perfectly in my device but once i formatted it and am not able to get that second application back in my mobile can u provide me the link so that i can download it.

Gourav September 16, 2008

There is none of such problem in 411 version, problem is only in latest 419.

to download both of old versions. [ direct download link ];topic=823.0;attach=450

get a valid airtel live connection.
If you have one change your acess point to airtel live

@ gaurav
in my experience build 411 doesnt connect or initailise recently. so I dont recommend it
build 419 easily initialises but crashes the very next time

try both versions plz
download alpha frm

to scrap in whatever version u r using, try replying to older scraps of friends if the post scrap links are nt working. this trick is working in alpha and beta

Kiranmint September 18, 2008

hey guys..this is kiran. I want free GPRS on my mobile NOKIA 7610, right now i m using AIRTEL network..i installed teashark but it is not working, whn I open, it will displays d white blank screen and hangout mymobile, i tried dis so many times…. but fail to establish connection… any one….

chathz September 18, 2008

@ kiranmint

are baba try the alpha version.

Sam September 27, 2008

Earlier versions worked with external proxy network. For live and mo, airtel uses their proxy server for any kind of data routing. This piece of jscript just reroutes the data from some external proxy server to your phone, hence by-passing the airtel billing server. Modifying this will be expensive and difficult for airtel, as this is part of their infrastructure. And, this is the way earlier methods of hacking worked. But eventually airtel rectified it, so will they do for this error as well.

Personally, even if someone gives me these connections for free, I wont use them. The gprs or even edge connections in India are so very sluggish that it takes more than 10 mins just to send an email on gmail. Better is to spend some money and get broadband connection. But these kinda hacks are good for people in remote locations where there are no broadband still available, or even if available they are very expensive. Long live the world of reverse engineering !
