First i think its nice we know the essence of prov files. Prov Files (Also referred to as Provisional Files) are provisioning files used for browsing on mobile phones. Without prov files, some phones cannot browse. Essentially phones running S40.

NOTE: Prov Files are used basically for s40 phones (series 40). Examples of such phones are Nokia 3110, 3500,3500c, 6233, 6288, 7110, 7210 etc.

Have you ever wondered why you’ve created a prov File on your phone but still didn’t work?

Well, sit back and let me take you on a ride to making configurations lot easier for your s40 phone..

How To Create and Activate Prov Files For Free Browsing

First download ‘moby explorer’ from

Secondly,make sure your personal configurations are correct for whatever network you use or simply request for settings from your service providers. In my next post, i will expose to you codes you can send to get your network default settings.

Goto your web browser >>click on ‘enter address‘ and input this address (link removed), when it opens click on the service provider icon you want to create provisional settings for. Lets take MTN for example.

The good news about MTN is that one provisional file works with all applications on your phone i.e opera, bolt, ucweb etc

When you click on MTN icon, enter the default ip in this format and select port 80, click on GENERATE

When you do this, it gives you two options which are ‘Download File‘ and ‘Zip and Download Files‘.

Click on download file, choose the path you want to save the file into, then click save. After downloading, exit your web browser. You are done with the first step.

Now go to where you saved the prov File, click on option, then details. If you see that the file ends with .EXE, That is where the ‘moby explorer’ come in. Go back to the main menu.

Now go to applications, click on games and locate your ‘moby explorer’ , open it and look for the path where you saved the prov. File, when you locate it, click on options and click on ‘rename’ then change the .EXE to .prov and click ok.

Exit the moby explorer, check on your file’s details and you will that it now ends with .prov , now send the file to a china phone or sonyericsson through bluetooth and send it back to your phone.

It will appear as configuration settings.

Now the final aspect. After you’ve saved the file and activate as default, Go to ‘settings’ then enter ‘configurations’. Enter default configurations and select the prov File you just saved and activate. Then come down to ‘activate as default’ and select OK.

Now go to your opera, bolt, or ucweb etc and insert a working cheat, you can find all working cheats in this blog, just search the blog.

Congratulations! I am such you can now browse free on your phone..
