General Packet Radio Service, or GPRS, settings for Vodafone, an international mobile carrier, vary by the user's location and phone, and they're configured through the phone's Access Point Name, or APN, settings. Among these settings are a name and type for the APN, a username and password to access the network and various proxy and port settings for multimedia messaging, according to Geek Squad. The settings must be properly configured for the phone to connect to the network.
Users can find the specific GPRS settings for their devices on the Vodafone website for their country. For example, Vodafone Australia details the settings for smartphones and non-smartphones and notes that not all phones require the same types of settings, such as APN type and mobile country code, or MCC.
