(By China Mobile GPRS or other internet connection, to send emails from any locations in the world, you may also need SMTP2Go Worldwide SMTP Server).
General Packet Radio Service, more commonly known as GPRS, is a new non-voice, value added, high-speed, packet-switching technology, for GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) networks. It makes sending and receiving small bursts of data, such as email and web browsing, as well as large volumes of data over a mobile telephone network possible. GPRS offers faster data transmission via a GSM network within a range 9.6Kbits to 115Kbits.
This new technology makes it possible for users to make telephone calls and transmit data at the same time. (For example, if you have a mobile phone using GPRS, you will be able to simultaneously make calls and receive e-mail massages.)
With GPRS, you are able to access to E-mail and the Internet on the move via your pocket PC or portable PC.
To use GPRS in China or other countries, the user will need:
To access GPRS you will need a GPRS capable cell phone and a GPRS enabled SIM card for the country in which you are traveling ( For instance, China GPRS SIM cards are inserted into GSM phones to allow access to networks in China. Not all China SIM cards are GPRS enabled ).
GSM systems are the only cell phone systems where GPRS is currently in use. Blackberry does not work with another country's prepaid SIM card for data service. Please find GPRS/GSM Unlocked Cell Phones from international distributors. Unlocked GSM Palm Handhelds also support GPRS by using overseas prepaid GPRS SIM cards.
Automatic access to the GPRS may be allowed by some mobile network operators, others will require a specific opt-in ( if you cell phone does not automatic access, use your phone menu to set your GPRS connection name to cmnet; cmwap is also supposed to work for WAP only access ).
Knowledge of how to send and/or receive GPRS information using your specific model of mobile phone, including software and hardware configuration (this creates a customer service requirement from phone and PC suppliers).
Please find follwing useful information from China Mobile.
GPRS APN: CMNET
Gateway Address:10.0.0.172 or 010.000.000.172
You might have experienced difficulties sending emails from your cell phone or laptop from more than one location (e.g. at home, at work, staying in a hotel, visiting another city or country). This is because the SMTP server assigned to you by your ISP only actually works when you're connected to the Internet through that ISP. As soon as you connect to the Internet through a different network you lose your ability to send emails! This is a security measure used by ISPs to prevent people sending spam through their servers, but it's also an annoying problem for laptop and PDA users who want to be able to use their email on the go. SMTP2Go Worldwide SMTP Server has an SMTP server that works all the time, wherever you are in the world. In other words it can be used from places such as hotels, Internet cafes, airports, wireless hotspots, home or another country.
