hi there! thanks for using Fixya.com!
Just a little bit of information:
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.
The Nokia 3650 comes with all the software you need to connect to the Internet. Although the phone doesn't have a built-in web browser, it can access Internet content via the Wap browser (from the 'Services' menu). You can also set up the phone to access email via the messaging application. This page provides details of how to get access to email on the move with your 3650. For help with Wap, see the menu on the left
Problems sending emails
- Ensure that your Network operator (e.g. Orange, o2, Vodafone) has 'data-enabled' your SIM card. If not, call their Customer Service people.
- Problems with GPRS. If connecting with GPRS, you need to make sure your network operator has enabled GPRS on your account. For more on this, and other GPRS troubleshooting help, see our GPRS page
Problems retrieving emails
- If you get an error such as "Problem sending message", you may be trying to send a message to one ISP's mailbox while connected to a different ISP. To prevent spamming, most ISPs require you to connect to their service (not someone else's) in order to send an email via their SMTP server. For instance, don't be surprised if you find that can't send mail from your BT Yahoo account (using the server address mail.btinternet.com) if you've logged on to Virgin Media.
Problems logging in
If attempting to retrieve email gives you a "General: System error", make sure you have "Gateway IP address" set to 0.0.0.0. (Tools | Settings | Connection | Access points)
This message also appears if you are trying to connect to an email account over a WAP connection (e.g. trying to connect to BT Yahoo's mailbox while dialed up over o2's WAP service).
Problems with GPRS
If, when attempting to log in, you're constantly prompted for your password, even though you know you're typing in the right password, there are two possible causes. If you're already logged in (via a web browser or a PC program like Outlook, then you're often not allowed to log on via a second device. Make sure you're not already connected to your email provider on another machine. The other thing to check is that you're account hasn't been temporarily locked as you may have made repeated attempts to log on incorrectly. Many ISPs allow you to check your mail via a web service... it may be worth trying this to make sure your account is working properly and there are no problems at your ISP.
Most mobile phone operators use different APNs (Access Point Nodes) for WAP-over-GPRS and email-over-GPRS. The upshot of this is that you can't connect to your email server over a GPRS WAP connection. Additionally, you may need to have your network operator enable access to the Internet/email GPRS service.
Problems with o2 - If you experience a "GPRS: Invalid GPRS access point" error when attempting to connect to, say, Virgin Media, over o2 via their mobile.o2.co.uk APN, this is likely to be for one of two reasons - either you have not entered the correct o2 Mobile Web APN settings, or o2 has not enabled "Mobile Web" on your account (in which case, contact o2).
Hope this will help you a lot! Cheers! don't forget to mark!! thanks!
