    Does anyone here know what protocol Palm uses for Palm Net service? I suspect it's some sort of pager service that they've co-opted.

    Thanks in advance!

    Somewhere I remember reading that Palm Net is hanging off of the Bell South pager network.

    Got it in 1. The Palm VII series doesn't actually connect to the web via an IP connection (as does the Minstrel). Rather, it uses a pager frequency running on BellSouth's network to "push" data to the VII. Hense, PQA - "Palm QUERY Apps" - simply send a query for the information you request (stock price, sports score, location of the nearest Starbucks) - which the server sends back down the pipe.
