    It's been a long time since I've used VZW's Prepay, so the answers may
    have changed, but...

    VZW does not offer WAP (Mobile Web) to Prepay customers. Period.
    Now, that doesn't mean you might not be able to A) get data or B) use
    a third-party WAP gateway with that data, but you can't get the easy
    up "Mobile Web" option at any price on Prepay.

    I didn't have a data-capable phone when I was solely on Prepay. When
    I moved to a postpaid account, I had them put my old Prepay number on
    NAM 2 on my LG 4400, so I could clean out the money in it and make a
    smooth transition to the new number.

    At one point, I did get the prepay account on NAM 2 to do tethered QNC
    data (approx. 14.4Kbps or whatever QNC is)...and only found out by
    accident when I forgot to switch over to NAM 1 to do data. Tethered =
    attached to my PDA or laptop via cable.

    So, I get the idea that QNC (slower speed) data, hooked to a PDA or
    laptop, could work on Prepay...but I can't say for sure mine didn't
    work because I already had a postpaid account on the same phone.

    As for Mobile Web/WAP...and using a non-VZW server...there are folks
    who are better experts at it than I am, so feel free to ask (I've
    never used anything but VZW's MW server, and only on my postpaid
    account). Presumably, if your phone is data capable with a WAP
    browser, you could get it to work...but I've never tried it. It
    definitely does NOT work with VZW's MW server and Prepay.
