Hi I have searched the forum to find an explanation on these two terms but unfortunately could not add to those threads as they were locked.  I have an N85 and am on a business plan for calls and have added a Data plan.

In Settings / Connection / Destinations / Internet i have 2 access points set up:-

Priority 1 is our HomeWLan

Priority 2 is TelecomData

Settings / Connection / Destinations /  Multimedia msg


Settings / Connection / Destinations / WAP services

Priority 1 is TelecomContent

Settings / Connection / Destinations / Uncategorised


at home whenever I connect to the web or google maps it always defaults to HomeWLan to connect no matter what I am doing but I am suprised to see that if I look to change connections the other option is WAP services and not the other Internet access point which is TelecomData.  I have also noticed that when I am out an about and look to connect to the web or maps it will not connect (as I assume it is trying to use TelecomData) but if I change to WAP services which it TelecomContent then it all goes to plan.  Customer services say it does not matter which I am using it is all still the same under my data plan.

Is this the case?  What then is TelecomData all about then?  Is there a speed difference between them?

Thanks just curious and this seems the place to get answers as the young CS guy I spoke to was not to sure

TelecomContent is and is a wap service
TelecomData is and connects directly to the internet (through a firewall)

Thanks for that. Is there a reason then why the browser on my phone appears to default to Content and not Data. I have my home page sett to so I am not trying to access the WAP portal.
