I'm trying to draw how GPRS routes through the network but I just can't think how it does, does anyone know?

If I understand you correctly, you want to know where GPRS goes in the network. I'm guessing that it gets sent as data just like voice is along the phoneline, and the network provider has a connection to the internet. The GPRS packets go along the phoneline and to the provider, which recognises where it wants to go on the internet and gives it an internet connection. Either that or a computer retrieves what the phone wants from the site for it, which I guess it probably the case.

I'm looking for a detailed answer with what the iGSN does etc... This is the mobile network, that does not use phone lines.

The mobile network uses lines to connect the receiver masts to the service providers, that's what I meant.

I can tell you how it works once the traffic is sent onto an ordinary network running IP, but I suspect that's not what you're after. The link below might help.

That site talks about IPv6, which is currently not used by home users yet or indeed mobile phones. It's experimental, because we're running out of 4-number IP addresses.
