Simple tips to Disable iPhone 3G GPRS or Edge Connection

Each time an Internet service is loaded, data will likely be transferred automatically through GPRS whether you like it or not. Therefore, I have found a trick to disable the access to GPRS network on my iPhone having recently 5 simple steps.

  • Setting icon
  • General
  • Network
  • Cellular Data Network
  • APN, Username and Password field
merely type in many words so iPhone do not pass the correct values to service providers (Digi, Maxis or Celcom). we'll receive a message that says "Unable to Connect to the GPRS Network" whenever you accidentally tap on online tool icons.

Welcome to Fixya
General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) is a packet-based wireless service used for sending and receiving data through the internet protocol. With GPRS, the transmitted data is divided into various 'packets' before it is received by the user.


To use GPRS, users require:
  • A mobile phone that supports GPRS
  • A subscription or upgrade, as relevant, to the mobile network that supports GPRS
  • Some users would specifically require asking their mobile network provider to activate the GPRS while other network operators allow automatic access
  • Knowledge of how to do data transfers on their specific model of the mobile handset as it varies depending on the models and brands.

Setting up GPRS for your phones:
Usually activating GPRS on your phones are done by the service providers, and different service providers have different configurations. Additionally, the settings for GPRS vary based on the different phones and phone models. As activation is required before setting up you should know that activation process vary from one provider to other. It could be as simple as sending an SMS to a particular number or calling customer care of that particular service provider. Once the activation is taken care of, the setting of the GPRS is done based on the model of the phone.
It is important to note here that the setting for GPRS is different for different phones companies and may be different even for the different models produced by these companies.Therefore, it is recommended that you rely on the information given directly from the service provider. Again activation process may be different for postpaid and prepaid customers. So just call and demand GPRS settings for
nokia C3 by the service provider, They will send it free.

phone is not ringing out loud, even when recieving or dialling


hello there!! Thank you for using Fixya.com;

General packet radio service (GPRS) is a packet oriented mobile data service available to users of the 2G cellular communication systems global system for mobile communications (GSM), as well as in the 3G systems. In the 2G systems, GPRS provides data rates of 56-114 kbit/s.

GPRS data transfer is typically charged per megabyte of traffic transferred, while data communication via traditional circuit switching is billed per minute of connection time, independent of whether the user actually is using the capacity or is in an idle state. GPRS is a best-effort packet switched service, as opposed to circuit switching, where a certain quality of service (QoS) is guaranteed during the connection for non-mobile users.

This GPRS can be acquired from your Service or Network Provider and there will be a minimum charge of amount on this and it depends from the Provider. You may just need to use a Mobile which supports this kind of feature.

Little more info about GPRS:
Services
GPRS upgrades GSM data services providing:
If SMS over GPRS is used, an SMS transmission speed of about 30 SMS messages per minute may be achieved. This is much faster than using the ordinary SMS over GSM, whose SMS transmission speed is about 6 to 10 SMS messages per minute.

For more information, you may contact your Network Provider.

Have a nice day!!!
