If you have a GPRS connection (ie it says GPRS in upper case) you have TCP/IP. The only other thing to check is to make sure your APN is right, which is in the options screen on you handheld.

You should then be able to open a browser, WAP or HTML and view a web page. You may need your handheld to be setup on a BES server for other apps, but that depends on your carrier and whether they allow full TCP/IP communication or not. There is a thread somewhere with what the carriers in North America will let you do without BES.

In the home screen, the screen with all the icons, along the top header somewhere... You'll see any 1 of these... X, SOS, GSM, gprs or GPRS. The GPRS is what you are looking for.
