    Green arrows mean that you're sending or receiving data on the wireless data network.
    If you're connecting through dial-up, you may see black arrows.

    Correct, I just tried it and the arrows are green if I'm on the national access network and black if I'm using the virtual modem to connect to my ISP. If you use versamail it should tell you that it's connecting and what service it's connecting to (whatever name you gave the account when you set it up under the prefs->network settings). At least on my phone (Verizon) I can go to the call log on the phone app and look at my minutes used and my kb sent/received and see whether I'm using the data plan or not. If I'm dialed into my ISP it doesn't show up as data received/transmitted. It also doesn't seem to show up as minutes used on there - it seems it only counts minutes used on the phone app on there.

    i sure hope you are right...(about the arrows)

    now for the fun stuff... i just went to http://www.sigalert.com/map.asp?Region=San+Diego to see traffic reports...

    it is a huge page...seems to be the same as the web page on my comupter...
    aren't there "dummied down" sites for hand helds??


    aso while loading the traffic site, the treo timed out and lost connection...where do i go to prevent this..

    thanks again (and seeing how many thits this thread has gotten, i suspect i am not the only one with these questions...)..

    that said, this is still a tough (but informative) forum

    Glad that it worked out for you.

    For Treo-friendly sites, you might start here:

    You can adjust the timeout in the same place you set up the dial-up network settings.

    I'm on Orange UK and I can't for the life of me get the phone to use a dial-up. I've set up all the properties correctly but when I click 'connect' it just, well, doesn't.
    Anyone in the UK got this to work?
