The User must establish a connection to the GPRS network before attempting to use the internal modem to connect to a reference network with SIM card in the CS20.

Now Press and Hold on the GPRS icon to bring up the "Right Click" menu. Choose Properties to launch the GPRS properties window as shown. In the Select a modem pull down menu, choose "SmartWorx Modem on VCA1" from the list of options.
