GPRS is a technique to connect to the internet from a mobile device. If you connect to the internet at home, you connect (most likely) using a DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) from your internet provider.

Do Orange Wap provide free access to off-portal sites like Google for free just like they said if you search for 3g on a wap phone on and go to Orange 3g then Access all Areas?

You have to use a GPRS ready phone as WAP is dial-up and costs the same no matter what page you browse (WAP charges by the minute, GPRS does not, it charges by the data you download, but some pages that you browse on GPRS cost you nothing) What Orange means is that if you subscribe to the Browse all Day for a pound package, you can the off-portal sites for free too, and also, on standard GPRS if you browse a selected off-portal page, you will be charged coppers, whereas you will get charged quite a bit extra with a normal off portal page. Most operator pages are free to browse and Orange let you browse their online catalouges for free through a GPRS ready phone. However the other Orange pages will charge you, but they are VERY CHEAP. The off-portal sites include: Google, Yahoo, Bebo, Max Power, Facebook (Free on Orange Dolphin), Sky Sports and many more! Also try ZAP's Video service on Orange GPRS. It's 100% free from data costs but streaming only works on 3G ready phones such as the popular K800i.
