    Wireless Application Protocol or WAP is an open international standard for applications that use wireless communication. Its principal application is to enable access to the Internet from a mobile phone or PDA.
    A WAP browser is designed to provide all of the basic services of a computer based web browser but simplified to operate within the restrictions of a mobile phone. WAP is now the protocol used for the majority of the world's mobile internet sites, known as WAP sites. The Japanese i-mode system is currently the only other major competing wireless data protocol.
    Mobile internet sites, or WAP sites, are websites written in, or dynamically converted to, WML (Wireless Markup Language) and accessed via the WAP browser.
    Before the introduction of WAP, service providers had extremely limited opportunities to offer interactive data services. Interactive data applications are required to support now commonplace activities such as:
    • email by mobile phone
    • tracking of stock market prices
    • sports results
    • news headlines
    • music downloads

    Yes, the answer is "NO".

    You MUST have a BlackBerry Data Plan; nothing else!! Not even a data plan will work.

    BlackBerry Data Plan is the ONLY way to enable a BlackBerry to use data services.

    Without it, your BlackBerry can only do voice and SMS.

    Re: Wap configuration

    Well, that's crap :-( They probably knew what they're doing to get more money from BB mobile users. I got the 7100v for free and I'm pay as you go O2 IR customer. I was hoping for the regular WAP connection without BB Data Plan. Funny thing, when I was trying to find out if it's possible in the Mobile telephony providers shops (O2 - my sim, Vodafone IE - BB was previously registered to) I was being sent from one provider to the other and back because the didn't know :-)))
