GPRS

Spice it up!

(applicable for GSM only)

How we fit the World Wide Web into your phone.

What would you do if you needed some real important information for your big project and your computer and laptop were nowhere to be found? That's where GPRS comes into the picture. With GPRS, you can get instant access to your favourite websites on the move.


How to use it?

If you have a GPRS compatible handset then by default you are provisioned for Virgin Mobile's vBytes and GSM Internet settings at the time of purchase. You will receive the settings automatically and in case you don't get the settings then buzz us on '121' and save the settings to your phone as default settings.

Once you have done that, go to the internet browser and select the Virgin Mobile vBytes APN or Virgin Mobile Internet APN (Access Point Name) on your mobile and start browsing.

 

Here are the GPRS settings for your phone:
