Default Browser differences

Please Login to Remove!

Can someone pls explain to me the difference between "Internet browser" and "WAP browser". The only thing I know is that, when I use the former, I can surf the Web indefinitely, only at a monthly cost, associated to my BB data pack plan. If instead I use the WAP browser, I apparently get charged a fixed amount every 15 minutes !!

Not 100% sure, but I think the WAP browser uses the APN gateway for me which incurs a cost from Vodafone. The swine. No Radio or streaming works for me reliably/properly using the "default" BIS connection. The APN is the access point or "channel" if you like which carries the data. Why they would do this on their "unlimited usage" deal beggars belief.
