    c. The T-Mobile Internet Add On Feature gives you Unlimited T-Mobile Internet access. Use T-Mobile Internet to access your email and browse the Internet no matter where you are, all for $19.99 a month!

    I copied and pasted right from T-Mobile plan selections. I want to pick the right plan to get personal email, IM and surf the web.

    Thanks!
    If you do a search on WAP n T-zones, back in Oct-Dec 2004 there were several long threads re this topic.

    Summary for Treo 600 - not sure whether it will apply to Treo 650

    1. TMO CS will tell you they only support if you purchase the $19.99 unlimited internet plan. That is NOT ENTIRELY TRUE.
    2. Many of us using 600 have no problem accessing POP mail and internet with just the $4.99 unlimited T-zone plan (albeit you have to re-configure the portal for internet access as 80 was shut down by TMO). Only caveat is can't using any of the IM apps with t-zones.

    If I can find the thread, will post; otherwise, spend a few minutes and look for it.

    Here's one thread that will help you set up internet access and POP Mail with only WAP and T-zones:

    I don't have the link but there are TC threads that deal with how to set up your treo so that you workaround the limits of the $4.99 tzones and access the full internet. It involves setting up a proxy server connection in Blazer and any other applications that you want to use.

    Thats the last summary thread. The originals provide more information including a shortcut for the less computer capable of us

    t-zones pro is web plus integration into your company email, I think.

    And the T-mobile internet is all ports open. Which allows you to so FTP, SSH, etc. Whatever from your device. There's also a T-Mobile Internet VPN or something like that which gives you an Internet Accessible IP address for using with your company's VPN.

    Currently, I have the $5 T-zones plan. Works for simple web on my Nokia 3595. I will try that with the Treo when it arrives. No doubt, I'll have to opt for the $19.99 plan though. Supposedly, you can set up a proxy to tunnel all your traffic out to the net. I might look into that as well.
    I had nokia 6820 and $4.99 T-zone; able to access POP Mail, etc. When I got my Treo 600, was told had to upgrade to $19.99 plan. I didn't believe TMO CS and since then have both POP Mail and full internet access using the same T-zone plan. However, TMO did shut down port 80 and you now need to configure to proxy server 216.155.165.50 and port 8080.

    See following threads to more information:

    Thanks!
    WAP= Wireless Access Protocol. It is a stripped down version of the full access to enable you to access the Web using phones and PDA browsers.

    You can access any web site that is WAP enabled. These are designated WAP, Mobile, LoFi, etc.

    Example: http://ao.yahoo.com/wap

    Even if you have MEdia Works you should access WAP sites for speed. Full web sites, if using heavy graphics, and Java will be difficult to navigate using the T650. There are other browsers than compress web pages to optimize the view.
