    When I connect to the Internet to check my mail or use blazer, I am connecting via GPRS and my wireless provider, but what am I coonecting to? is my wireless provider going direct to the internet, or am I still going through my ISP? Am I burning time on my ISP?

    My ISP is down today, so I can't check and see if I am using minutes, but since my ISP is down and my Treo also cannot connect to the Interent, I am assuming that I am just using a faster way to get to my ISP.

    If I change ISPs, where do I change the settings in order to do that?

    Thanks for anyones help. I am in Jakarta, using IM3 and Uninet, under internetinstan.

    With GPRS your wireless carrier IS also your ISP. GPRS data is measured bvy the kb and MB not by the minute.

    Thanks. I got it figured out adn your post confirms what I figured was true.

    My email was a problem because my ISP was down. The other problems I had were due to the GPRS signal cutting in and out. It seems that a lot of Internet providers in Indonesia, or at least in Jakarta, were having a lot of troubles the last couple of days.

    Thanks for the input. BTW, here in Jakarta the GPRS is free from IM3,which is very nice.
