You might want google for your Cell Phone Company and how to
get on the internet.  Most cellular systems have a special
number that you dial via DUN to get IP.  For example, Sprint
is #777.  Google for yours.  Then configure the N800 to dial
the special access number through DUN and you're done.  Works
for me from my Tungsten E2 through my Sprint Samsung A900m.
