Yep. It connects to a Nokia.com URL too. Not only that but after
paying/connecting with GPRS, it finds no Visual IDs for my local area.
*sigh*

No big deal because listening to the radio is what's important, but the
shoddy preparation of that piece of software just grates. WLAN should
be a valid access point option. It seems the N95's Visual Radio was
designed more with something like the N73 in mind (ie. no wifi).
