my cell phone is lg gx500. my problem is the mobile internet are very slow and no downloads. can you ask me it use high speed internet on our lg gx500

Probably now you are using GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) or EDGE (Enhanced Data for Global Evolution) services on your phone.These services and their speeds are dependent on their Network service providers.However, these services cannot provide speeds beyond a limit (32-48kbps for GPRS and 135kbps for EDGE) and are not suitable for services like high speed internet surfing, video streaming and downloading.
You cannot use High speed 3G services on your LG GX500 because your phone doesn't support 3G technology.But you can connect your phone to a WLAN (Wireless LAN) Network (Your phone supports WiFi Technology) which are capable of high speeds (upto 54 Mbps).It can be from a public WLAN network or a WiFi modem.

Hope you are satisfied with my solution.Thanks for choosing Fixya.

how to set globe grps setting?

Hello and 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.
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 by the service provider, They will send it free.

Any more confusion, queries or for further assistance, I am here to help.
I hope this solution helps you
Thank you for using FixYa!

It allows you to access the Internet by sending packets of data over the Internet. You can send and receive email with GPRS. It supports WAP, SMS text messaging and other data communications. When you click on the Web icon on your mobile phone, you get connected to the Internet. For the internet setting/configuration on your mobile you may contact your mobile service provider by calling on help line or visiting their nearest office.

what is PACKet data? steps to connect my phone to to web service

Answer: General Packet Radio Service is used mostly in Europe and Asia. GPRS is used most commonly for cell phones. In Canada, Rogers and Fido are using GPRS.
You can send and receive emails using GPRS and browse the Internet.
General Packet Radio Service is a radio technology for GSM networks that adds packet-switching protocols, shorter set-up time for ISP connections, it also offers the possibility to charge by amount of data sent rather than connect time.
It is a new nonvoice value added service that allows information to be sent and received across a mobile telephone network. GPRS is NOT related to GPS (Global Positioning System), a similar acronym that is often used in mobile contexts. Allowing information to be transmitted more quickly, immediately and efficiently across the mobile network, GPRS may well be a relatively less costly mobile data service.
GPRS can provide instant connections subject to radio coverage. No dial-up modem connection is necessary.

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:
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!!!
