Android Settings for GCI GSM Devices

What is Android? Google's operating system for mobile phones

The different versions of Android have the same basic settings for packet data and MMS and should have the same menu structure.  Some phones have different user interfaces but once you get into the settings everything is identical.

In most phones you can access settings by “sliding up” from the bottom to the top of the screen revealing all of the installed programs.  Then scroll down and tap on Settings.
