You do not need the card slot for internet, you can put a memory card in there to store your data.
The PDA supports Wifi, so it is able to connect to a wireless network, as long as it is in range and it is allowed to access the network.
I don't know if you've got the manual. Anyway, you can find it here.
How to make a connection is explained in section 10, under 'Creating an ethernet connection'. I think a network card is already installed in your PDA.

You can manage email by using the pre-installed Microsoft Outlook. How to use this is also explained in the manual, in section 6.

If you need any further help, just post your question.

    Sorry, i made a mistake. You have a SD-card slot for memory and your compactflash port is for use with a compact flash ethernet card. If you have the card you need, ethernet or wireless, you can make connection as explained in the initial post.
    Again sorry for my mistake.

I am trying to get email access. I am not able to get my email even though my PDA says that it is connecting to my Wi-Fi


First you have to ensure that the problem is not from the internet connection. Try using the PDA and the same wireless connection to open a different site which is different from the email provider. If the other site opens then you are sure that the problem is from either the phone or the email service provider.
On the other hand if it does not open then this means that the recommended settings which are expected for the PDA to work with the wifi have not been properly set to give the PDA internet access. The device might be connected to the wifi but not connected to access the internet from the device. Try setting up the PDA and this time take care of the settings.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

On my PDA MC70 it is showing WI-FI "unavailable"


This can get kind of complicated, and your wireless carrier may block this depending on the data plan. It's also different for the MC7095 (CDMA) and MC7094 (GSM/GPRS) models. You may also want to see if your device BSP release is up-to-date.

Here is some basic info for the MC7095 (Sprint):

Device was not connected to network to start.
Went to Start, Programs, Internet Sharing, tapped Connect, showed Status: Check USB connection. Internet Sharing drivers were installed on laptop computer, then device displayed Internet Sharing Status "Connected". We were able to browse the web on the laptop computer. Closed out of Internet Sharing (tap X on upper right hand corner). On device, tapped Start, Internet Explorer, attempted to browse to a webpage. Able to browse on both laptop computer and MC7095 device.

Note: Attempted to Disconnect the Internet Sharing session, unable to. The device does not appear to respond to the "Disconnect" option on bottom left of screen. When tapping "Disconnect" the option light up as if being tapped however the device itself shows no other changes and Status still displays :Connected.
***FYI*** In testing with a different MC7095 (BSP33) we experienced the same issues with not being able to "Disconnect" the Internet Sharing session.

Wi fi connection problem


It could be that your connection is ok but the cached files and cookies are corrupt. Clean out the cookies and temp internet files in the temp folder or whatever your pda uses to clean itself of old files.
