Hello, I have just set up my Blackberry 8520. And I have connected my phone to my wireless internet from my computer using the Wi-fi on the phone. But I have got browser and WAP on there. I want to know what one is the wi-fi internet and what one is the unlimited internet on the phone?

WAP is neither. It uses carrier data that may be subject to charges.

Do you have a blakcberry data plan or just regular "unlimited internet"?
Regular "unlimited internet" will not work on a blackberry.

I have got Wi-Fi sign on the right hand corner of my blackberry and it says GPRS does this mean I am on my wireless internet from my computer? Also I have 1 GB per month internet.

1 GB per month of internet in a blackberry plan? or generic internet?
Generic internet will not work.

You need a Blackberry specific data plan.

Call your carrier.
