The Explorer Internet connection screen is accessed by pressing the "speedometer" icon at the bottom of the screen. If the 510 isn't set up to auto-connect to "Standard Data" (charged by the Megabyte), you would need to select "Standard Data" from this screen to initiate the data connection to the Internet. Other "Streaming" services are for CIR 1:1 connections, which are normally disabled by default unless requested otherwise at activation. Streaming services are charged by the minute and are normally used by live radio broadcasters.
