    Is it possible to use the wap on my P800 and the cradle to access the
    internet?

    I don't know about the cradle, but you can via a serial cable,
    infra-red, or (my preference) Bluetooth. See SE's website and the link
    below. Also, your connection will be via GPRS, not WAP. Wireless
    Application Protocol is what is used to provide content for mobile
    devices that do not support HTML whereas the General (or GSM) Packet
    Radio System is the wireless data network infrastructure used by GSM
    wireless carriers. Q.v. http://www.wapforum.org/ and

    Beg to differ... last academic year I used SonyEricsson T68i, tecom usb BT
    dongle, normal pc and bt genie (now o2 online) contract sim. Connected using
    winxp DUN to 915000 , the wap number, and got a nice http connection out of
    it. the wap gateway even compresses pictures en route to make the most of
    the 9600 connection!

    It was a bit unreliable, sometimes the connection would give up (not hang
    up, just stop responding) after a minute or two... most of the time was no
    problems at all, but there were occasions when i left it on for 11hrs at a
    time to keep my email bang up to date ;-)

    ps. i would've posted on here sooner about this but i wanted to milk the
    free wap for all its worth !

    Your provider may have called it the "wap system" but you were using
    GSM/GPRS to actually connect. WAP is the protocol not the method by which
    you connect to the service/Internet. The original reply was correct.
