Subscribe 3G service in existing NTC 2G sim

If you have a 3G phone and are in place where ntc is providing its 3G service, now there is no need to buy a separate 3G sim. You can simply convert 2G Sim to 3G Sim following few steps :NTC 3G
1. Type 3g in text message .
2. Send it to 1400
3. Then you will receive message like this ‘Thank you for subscribing 3G service.You will be connected by 5 PM next working day:Nepal Telecom ‘
4. 3G service will be activated in 2G sim within 2 days.

    1. You can just go to settings in the mobile phone, then go to connectivity, then go to Network, then change the network mode to “GSM” or “DUAL MODE” so that you can change it to 2g metwork..:P

    2. no need to change 3G to 2G only go to network setting and change dual mode to GSM only. You will get 2G network.

  1. hlw there , i sent the message but does it charge 100 rs for 3g activation in pre paid ?cause i didnt get 3g activated in my s.e. T715.

  2. i sent two msges still it couldnt be activated though i got reply from ntc ‘thanks for . . . . . by 5pm next working day ‘ but never succed in receiving 3g though my area certainly has a coverage ,perhaps this pre-paid 3g service has been abondoned ?sad :/

    1. may be. the above method is what i got from their office, i think either it may take time to become this method fully functional or they will bring some other way.

  3. Works for gprs activation but does not seem to activate 3G even though you get the message saying by “5pm next working day.”

  4. This method does not work! Working method :
    You should go to ntc office(i went to pulchowk ntc ofice) ; u can get a form there(3G update form),fill the form mentioning name of sim owner and prepaid mobile number give it to the prepaid sim counter and pay Rs.100, you’ll get invoice receipt then you will have 3g connectivity by the next day. Hope it helps !

  5. I filled the 3g form and was told that it would get activated within 2 days, bits it’s already 3 days and still no sign of 3g!

  6. @ Sabin Bajracharya :
    There are specific areas for using 3G service. You need to be in 3G coverage area to use fast 3G internet service. Visit nepal telecom’s official website for more info about 3G coverage areas within kathmandu and others parts of Nepal.

  7. Dai ,k ncell connect ma ntc ko sim halera net chal6 .maile settings change ta milaya. connect pani bhayo.tara 0.00 kbps dekhaun6.browse garna mildaina

    1. I think ncell connect may be locked so it may not work other network. First the ncell connect should be unlocked and it can work with ntc.

  8. i like your blog very much. Please send me your email address facebook and phone number to my email

  9. I activated this 3G service from 2G prepaid sim by filling form at Pulchowk Ntc office year ago with NRs 100. And in website of NTC it is written as this is valid only for 9 months. So, it means I have to again go there to activate the 3G service?
    And how to know that 3G is activated in the cell phone or not? The symbol is E in city area and G outside the ringroad. My cell phone is Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini.

  13. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    1. Whether another phone is required or not, depends on a phone hardware . If it does not support 3g, it’s time to get new one… As almost all android phones have this specification, ntc 3g works with these phones.

  14. Can anyone answer me
    I have send sms to 1400 and i had got 2 sms …….. one of its says thanku for subscribing u will be connented within 2 days…… another one says u have been connencted GSM BIling but it hadn’t charged my Rs.100

      1. Yes i got it NAvin i got it but it performance is not good…… sometime it works slows and sometime it doesn’t work anymore

        What is the problem?

  15. CAn u help me Navin?

    If i keep my data connenction on and i didn’t use any application such as Facebook , Operamini, etc…….. Will it charge me or not?
    And how r the rate of its charges ?

    1. Most of the smartphone allow background data . When packet data is kept on, many apps take data for update, synchronisation even if they are not opened. The charges depend on volume of data used.
