  1. You may choose network connections and click on the 'New Mobile Broadband Connection'

  2. Select 'continue' in the dialog box and select "India" as country & then click continue.

  3. It will show the list of service providers, select 'I don't know my provider' option and type 'TATA DOCOMO UMTS', click continue. Note: Don't select 'Tata DoCoMo' since it is for Tata Photon+ (2G) and not for DoCoMo 3G
