GPRS Settings for Cell Phones

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.


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 your mobile by the Service Providers, They will send it free.
