WAP, Edge, GPRS and mobile service packages
by thecuriousone - 1/31/06 8:18 AM
Hi All- I recently purchased an unlocked qtek 8310 and an in the learning curve to access all of its features. My current service provider is T-Mobile with whom I have a package that includes 2 MB of data service.
Can someone direct me to a discussion of Wireless application protocol? As I understand this term, it refers to optimizing web pages to be best viewed on a smaller smartphone screen. I keep seeing references to difficulties in setting this up. What do I need to know to do this?
Also, can someone detail the benefits of Edge vs. GPRS? Does one eat up a data package faster than the other? Is one more readily available than the other? I live in a major metropolitan area that I am pretty sure has both. If I have the option of making one or the other the default connection, which should it be and why?
Thanks so much for any help or observations. I've not been able to find the answers I need to make good decisions on what to choose.
