    Set your browser emulation to Blackberry. With the browser open hit Menu > Options > Browser Configuration, then scroll down to Emulation. Make sure you're using Column View also.

    Also, to answer your thread title question, you might check out this definition if you want to know what it means.

    One thing that I have found to be very helpful is the glossary that is part of the help menu index. I am rather new to BB and have had no idea what many of the acronyms (like WAP) mean. I have not come across one yet that the glossary did not fully define and describe. Hope that helps you out in the future.

    That's a good tip for all of us, rx. For newbys who don't know about this, select the "help" icon on your BB, scroll down to the glossary, select it and enjoy reading definitions in alphabetical order.

    It means, simply, Wireless Application Protocol. Simplistically explained, it is a standardized protocol for allowing cellular devices to access the internet.
