Important things to know about GPRS!!
What is GPRS ?
General Packet Radio Services, also known as 2.5G, is a technology between the second (2G) and third (3G) generations of mobile telephonys that allows information to be sent and received across a mobile telephone network. It supplements today's mobile user experience with Circuit Switched Data and Short Message Service. Contrary to common misconception, GPRS has nothing to do with GPS [the Global Positioning System], a similar acronym that is often used in mobile contexts.
