Store and Forward:

Sometimes GPRS becomes expensive for users who have to connect to the server every 2 minutes. For those users in countries where GPRS is an expensive affair, we have a facility to store the location data in the phone and upload it manually when the user is in a specific network like a WLAN.

This way the overhead of expensive GPRS fees is done away with. A user can upload the GPS data manually to the server. The user will be prompted to choose a preferred Internet Access Point (IAP) which the user can choose as the least expensive GPRS provider or WLAN if supported on the phone.

To invoke the Store and Forward feature, the user must change the settings on the Phone application, logged in as an Administrative and set the value for the Setting "Store and Forward" as Yes.
