    GSM/GPRS?

    Advertisement



    I was poking around in the advanced options and under SMS I noticed it let's you choose between GSM and GPRS. I was just wondering, what's the difference?

    Re: GSM/GPRS?

    SMS messages can also be send over GPRS with SOME carriers it may save the cost on text messages. The main advantage of sending over GPRS is speed. SMS's over GPRS will be as quick as Blackberry PIN messages. However, if you are not in GPRS coverage or roaming without data you'll not be able to send/receive SMS's.

    So the most common settings are GSM or GPRS Preferred (falls back on GSM if not in coverage)

    Hope that helps.
