General packet radio service (GPRS) is a network service that allows
mobile phones to send and receive data over an Internet protocol
(IP)-based network. GPRS is a data bearer that enables wireless access
to data networks such as the Internet.
Enhanced GPRS (EGPRS) is similar to GPRS but enables faster
connections. For more information on availability of (E)GPRS and data
transfer speed, contact your network operator or service provider.
The applications that may use (E)GPRS are MMS, video streaming,
browsing sessions, e-mail, remote SyncML, Java application
downloading, and the PC dial-up.
When you have selected GPRS as a data bearer, the phone uses EGPRS
instead of GPRS if this is available in the network. You cannot select
between EGPRS and GPRS, but for some applications you may be able to
select GPRS or
(circuit switched data, CSD).
