Default BB Networking 101 Questions

Not to sound like a total idiot, but I am pretty new to blackberry and have a networking question. People are telling me to "configure your APN" or WAP, etc... What is a WAP, APN, and any other 101 Networking Term for BB. Where can I find introductory info to get my feet wet? Thanks.

Excellent idea, we need a BlackBerry glossary for newbies!

APN
This is an acronym for Access Point Name. This is a kind of a gateway between the mobile network and the Internet network. To gain access to always-on Internet from a cellphone, such as instant messaging, it goes through an APN. Some cellphones, such as BlackBerry uses multiple APN's. The main APN is blackberry.net for the BlackBerry emails, but there are other APN's that are carrier-specific for getting Internet access such as Verichat, etc.

WAP
This stands for Wireless Application Protocol. This is a method of wireless web browsing. Kind of like slimmed-down HTML. Wikipedia Definition

Just say other terms do we need defined, and I will create more glossary definitions. Eventually, this could become one of my mega "BlackBerry FAQ" documents :D

Allow me to present the newest entry to my BlackBerry FAQ:
  • BlackBerry Glossary
    Are you dizzy? Lost in alphabet soup? What the heck is BES? MDS? APN? Push Email? GSM? CDMA? PIN? This article is a lifesaver!
Also just posted on the 4 most popular BlackBerry forums.
