    I know the service providers (yours should say rogers) browser goes through your cell providers network and since I'm on a BES, the "browser" goes through the BES server to the internet. I know this because browsing is restricted internally to filter traffic. Ebay and such pages get blocked, so I use the providers browser for those sites and it works fine.

    I think another difference is that they are pre-configured differently. Example: Trying to download Opera Mini cannot be done on Internet Browser it will give you the run around about do it from mobile. If you use the wap browser (such as Media Net for AT&T, Tzones for T-mobile) it will work

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Both would still use. The same amount of data transfer.

    Ok that was my main concern. I prefer how wap pages load up in the Internet Browser. I'll just continue using it.

    Thanks for the clarification.
