Yeap, GPRS or UMTS isn't exactly cheap (yet) ... Even in India I'd rather go for an Internet Cafe (the bigger cities have plenty of them) or WLAN hotspots somewhere somehow (all the many IT companies definitely have that plus it shouldn't be problematic to get WLAN access in the better hotels or in the various "business centers" ...).
Just a suggestion of course.
Your X11 configuration is in this file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf
.... and inside of it there should be a line saying "Defaultdepth 24
" <== so that would be 24-bit ..... "16" would be 16-bit (65536 colors), "8" would be 256 colors, and so on. Usually it should already be on 24-bit. I suggest you leave it like that.
