    Is it possible to install GRPS into a device?

    I don't know how much my question is silly...

    But...

    Is it possible to install a GRPS into a Nokia Communicator device? 9210I?

    That's actually GPRS - General Packet Radio Service. More info here.

    I use GPRS for accessing the net from my PDA (i-mate). Can get expensive though (in Australia ) so I rarely use it.

    Sorry, I meant GPRS, I dont know why I spelled it as GRPS.

    Well, I was wondering if someone can install that system into the Nokia Communicator 9210I

    The answer is No. Unless it has it built in, then no.

    I think that's correct. It's a hardware issue, so check with whatever device you next purchase, to ensure that it's GPRS enabled.

    Again Bluetooth is hardware (well part of it) unless its included in the phone then you don't have it.

    Yeah, but like if I took it to someone specilized to install a chip inside my communicator, is that possible or no need to dream of it?

    I'd love to see them put a small ship inside your mobile phone. Must be the same people who put them in bottles.

    Gprs needs a chip on the modem, so the answer is no
    Try Nokia 9500, greatest phone ever

    Would you like to pay its cost?

    It's around $1,000

    I'd kill to be able to add GPRS to my Dell Axim X5 (pocket pc), and have the connection use the same "account" as my T-Mobile phone does - I have unlimited internet for $3/mo on my phone, so that could come in handy on the run.
