    Basic questions about cellphone network

    Hi all

    I'm a beginner of symbian, and troubled by these questions :

    1. How many networks can works at the same time? For example, GPRS, WLAN, WCDMA, GSM, and so on.
    Is there any document about it or the key word for searching? I can not find it in Wiki.

    2. GPRS based on GSM, is that means if GPRS connection works, GSM must on working?

    3. How to get the Ids and attributes of active networks? I use RConnctMontinor::GetConnectCount to get the number of
    active networks but it always return 0.

    Thanks.

    You can use one IAP (internet access point) at a time.

    GPRS is packet data service (to access internet)on GSM. When you get any call/SMS GPRS connection is suspended.

    the class is not tight to the OS, also Symbian OS does not limit the devices to B-Class, it is all about the HW support.
