That suggests that the isp apn does not use nat. If so that's cool. OTOH all (admittingly European carriers) do nat for internet access. OTOH the wap apns provide a walled garden that include a wap proxy that allows surfing http sites.

Despite how many people associate internet==IE, having a proxy that allows http access, massaging the content when accessed is not "normal" Internet access.

OTOH, one can build a tunnel through http, but it's a pita. add gprs speeds, plus the wap proxy and it gets a PITA.

The wap APN does provide "generic" internet access.  But the difference 
is that is uses a NAT'ed private IP address.  Therefore you probably 
can't use it with a VPN (you would need PDA Connect if that is a 
requirement for you).  But for basic browsing, it will work just fine.
