An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each device (e.g., computer, printer) participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.An IP address serves two principal functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing. Its role has been characterized as follows: "A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how to get there."

For more details on IP Address please check here :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_address

while accessing internet from mobile then you use via GPRS or wireless,which is connected to some access points wireless and then those are connected to router and then to the server. Like this the connection happens.

Every device connected to the public Internet is assigned a unique number known as an Internet Protocol (IP) address. IP addresses consist of four numbers separated by periods (also called a 'dotted-quad') and look something like 127.0.0.1.

Since these numbers are usually assigned to internet service providers within region-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the region or country from which a computer is connecting to the Internet. An IP address can sometimes be used to show the user's general location.

Because the numbers may be tedious to deal with, an IP address may also be assigned to a Host name, which is sometimes easier to remember. Hostnames may be looked up to find IP addresses, and vice-versa. At one time ISPs issued one IP address to each user. These are called static IP addresses. Because there is a limited number of IP addresses and with increased usage of the internet ISPs now issue IP addresses in a dynamic fashion out of a pool of IP addresses (Using DHCP). These are referred to as dynamic IP addresses. This also limits the ability of the user to host websites, mail servers, ftp servers, etc. In addition to users connecting to the internet, with virtual hosting, a single machine can act like multiple machines (with multiple domain names and IP addresses).

Mobile GSM vendor will give you the IP configuration.

Thanks

Your mobile device's IP address is assigned by the Internet Service Provider who is handling the connection. You normally don't need to worry about it, unless you end up sharing or reusing an IP address that a site (server) has "banned" for abusive behavior.

The site's IP address is more or less fixed (usually pointing to the host's nameserver(s)) and is looked up in the "Domain Name Server" system. Your ISP or some other server has a list of domain names and their IP addresses, so your browser can map domain name to IP address and send its packets on their merry way.

What about IPv6? Is it better? I remember all the hype about it and now it is as though no one cares any longer. Just like cloud.

We ran out of IPv4 addresses a while ago. My understanding is that everything is actually IPv6 behind the scenes, and mapped to IPv4 for those who can't or won't convert over.

In simple word "IP address is the unique identity of each device that is connected on a network". It is like our "house address" that contains information about our location in a particular area.

I think an IP location might additionally be doled out to a Host name, which is in some cases less demanding to recall. Hostnames may be gazed toward discover IP locations, and the other way around. At one time Isps issued one IP location to every client. These are called static IP addresses. Since there is a set number of IP locations and with expanded use of the web Isps now issue IP addresses in an element mold out of a pool of IP locations
