General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) is a standard for wireless communication at speeds up to 111 kilobits per second (Kbps), faster than the current Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), which runs at 9.6 kbps. GPRS uses a limited amount of bandwidth and is useful for sending and receiving minimal amounts of data to surf the Internet and e-mail contains. The self-adjustment in a GPRS connection enables you to automatically connect to the Internet, but if you do not want this setting to do this, you can disable the automatic connection, downloading a configuration tool.

2. Start the advanced configuration tool for your phone.


3. Click on "Data Connections" tab and find the "Auto Attach GPRS enabled."


4. Click on "GPRS Auto Attach Enabled 'to disable Auto Connect to GPRS.


5. Click "Done" and leave the advanced configuration tool.

i can't run online videos in my GD510. While connecting to internet, the downloading speed is very low. What are all the video formats supporting by GD510?


You must have a high speed internet connection to watch online videos.Your phone supports GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) and EDGE (Enhanced Data for Global Evolution) only.It doesn't have 3G or WLAN capability.GPRS services have only speeds upto 35 kbps in most networks.But EDGE Technology supports speeds upto 135 kbps.But these services are dependent on the Network Service Providers.
So you must use an EDGE supporting Network to watch online videos smoothly and for good downloading speeds.Your LG GD510 supports 3GP and MP4 video file formats and H.264 and H.263 video compression standards.

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

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!!!
