    PACKET DATA PROTOCOL CONTEXT MANAGEMENT METHOD FOR A MOBILE STATION

    A packet data protocol (PDP) context management method is provided. The PDP context management method enables a mobile station to manage the PDP contexts of networks integrally by evaluating PDP context capacities of the networks in a proactive manner. A packet service method of the present invention includes creating a network information table after activating a packet data protocol (PDP) context to a network, determining, when a multiple PDP context activation is requested, whether the network has a multiple PDP context capacity with reference to the network information table, requesting, if the network has a multiple PDP context capacity, a multiple PDP context activation to the network and stopping, if the network has a multiple PDP context capacity, attempt of a multiple PDP context activation to the network.
