I wonder if somebody can help me out understanding GPRS. I have a Nokia 6310i on Orange PAYG and a Sony Vaio which I connect at home with wifi and on my mobile with bluetooth using a dial up at 14.4kbps. Obviously this is rubbish and I want to investigate GPRS but don't quite understand how it works. I have done some digging and with the info, edited one of my dial up connections to dia *99# and set the phone GPRS to orangeinternet. I hit dial and it connected immediately and I could surf! This was a suprise, not only that it worked but that I had any access as I have not bought any, just £50 worth of minutes. So, what's going on? I understand that GPRS is always on so is my mobile now always connected or do I have to dial each time. Also, at home, do I need to turn bluetooth off to make sure my laptop doesnt' dial on my mobile. Lastly, how am I surfing and how am I paying for it?
