Welcome to Geekzone. To connect to AOL you need CSD, which is similar to dial-up, instead of GPRS. The problem is that very few operators provide CSD these days.

As to connecting to your office - do you use a VPN? This can be done via GPRS if that's the case.

Thanks, to be honest I am not bothered about Aol as much as connecting to my office PC to get e-mail on my PDA while away and check on my outlook calndar. I assume my V3 has GPRS? And that the server at work works on VPN? I have Geeks who I work with, what do I need to tell them to help me set it up?

You have to find out how is your connection to work... If it's through a VPN or just via any standard TCP/IP connection then you only need GPRS.

For VPN to work though you have to consult with your operator to see if you can get a non-NAT GPRS because most VPN servers don't work well with the NAT addresses handed out by operators.
