How to set up GPRS?

First you need to make sure that the GPRS-Internet service is connected and supported by your operator. You also need to check the settings of the phone itself - if it supports such an option. Mobile operators provide two types of Internet access - this is GPRS-INTERNET and GPRS-WAP. The first type of service is cheaper than GPRS-WAP, therefore it is more expedient to configure it. If the Internet is configured for this phone for the first time, then after changing all the settings, you need to re-register the SIM card on the network. To do this, you must first turn off the phone for a few minutes, and then turn it on again. How to set up Internet GPRS will also depend on your phone model, and even on your service provider. Some operators, for example, Beeline, have the option "Autotune", which can be activated on the official website of the operator.
