World popular term GPRS stands for General Packet Radio Service. Dialog GPRS can be accessed via EDGE (less than 32 kbps), UMTS (384 kbps) or HSPA (up to 14.4 Mbps) depending on your handset’s capability.

Normally when you insert your SIM card to a new handset Dialog automatically detects your handset modal and sends you GPRS, MMS and MyTV settings automatically. But all phone models are not supported with this function. If so you can set up your handset to GPRS, MMS or MyTV manually.

The advantage of sending MMS instead SMS is, you can attach pictures and files in to your messages. Not like in SMS, in a MMS the number of characters you can type per message is unlimited.  Allowing you such a service free is like giving you both car and patrol for free since you need not any handset to use the service.

How To Type Sinhala Unicode Letters

type-in-sinhala

Type in Sinhala, visit:  http://gishan.co/sin

If you are not an expert in Sinhalese keyboard most probably you have to use a Singlish unicode converter which converts “mama wada” to “මම වැඩ”. There are number of Singlish to Sinhala unicode converters on the web such as real-time Unicode converter from UCSC. Later Google released Type in Sinhalese – Google Transliteration tool. Both were online tools. You need to have an online internet connection to use them (in some conditions you could use real-time Unicode converter offline too).

“Type In Sinhala app” for Facebook and web

Type In Sinhala

Facebook app: http://www.facebook.com/TypeInSinhala

This is a new software. It is more easy to use than any other software. It converts Singish style into Sinhala Unicode in realtime. Also it allow you to save your frequently used Sinhala Unicode phases in to your account and retrieve later when you have signed up with the software.

To access online writing software directly: http://gishan.co/sin

Option 2: Use Google Transliteration IME to type Sinhala letters

This is an 100% offline Windows based tool. Still in beta and not very reliable. This will convert the Singlish phrase into Sinhala Unicode. You can install it and use with most of the Windows application environments. Once you install the tool Windows language bar will appear on the task bar.

Download IME here: http://www.google.com/ime/transliteration/

image

Select SI Sinhala (Sri Lanka) from the language bar menu.

image

Then Google Transliteration IME toolbar will appear on your screen. Now click (point your cursor) where you need to type in Sinhalese. The main advantage is you can type in directly where you need to type in Sinhalese instead of typing in a separate program and then copying and pasting it to where necessary.

මෙය වින්ඩෝස් මෙහෙයුම් පද්දතිය තුල සිංහල වදන් හැසිරවීම සඳහා දැනට ඇති පහසුම ක්‍රමයයි.

If you are facing problems with Google Transliteration IME, you can still use Type In Sinhala tool,  Type in Sinhalese – Google Transliteration tool or  real-time Unicode converter from UCSC online without any installation.

Enjoy!

  • Yes, we have to divide up our time like that, between our politics and our equations. But to me our equations are far more important, for politics are only a matter of present concern. A mathematical equation stands forever
  • The release of atom power has changed everything except our way of thinking…the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind. If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker

  • One had to cram all this stuff into one’s mind for the examinations, whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year
  • …one of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one’s own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought
  • He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder
  • A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty
  • Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts (Sign hanging in Einstein’s office at Princeton)
