    No, they don't.

    Some DHCP systems will give you the same IP addr twice. But its not guarenteed.

    Generally, sites that register you for something store the info in cookies, not by IP.

    My understanding is that even while your 3G connection is in standby your IP can change. So, the answer would be a most definate no.

    No clue how to do it (yet) in Pocket PC, but DHCP leases do have an expiration. I know on Verizon your IP will change depending on the geographic area (or, more specifically, the network you're on). My IP stays the same in Los Angeles but does change when I'm in Phoenix or the Bay Area.

    If you go look at your internet connection, you can see under properties that it's dynamic.
