About the WAP
Browser
Your phone comes equipped with a WAP (Wireless
Application Protocol) Browser, making it possible for you
to access the Wireless Web.
The WAP Browser allows you to:
• Access up-to-the-minute information via your phone
• View specially designed text versions of popular
Internet sites including Yahoo!®, CNN MobileSM and
the Weather Channel®
Browsing the Wireless Web using your phone is unlike
using your computer, in that site providers have:
• Selected only the critical aspects of their site for
wireless phone users
• Removed most graphics
Each time you start the WAP Browser, the phone
connects to the Wireless Web and the service indicator
icon ( ) appears on the display to inform you that you
are:
• Connected to the Wireless Web
• Will be billed accordingly (rates vary according to your
service option)
The WAP Browser ends the network connection after a
certain period of inactivity and automatically reconnects
as necessary. For this reason, you may find that you are
billed for several network connections within a single
session. This is normal and is designed to minimise your
bill.
Setting Up the WAP
Browser
Before using the WAP Browser, you must set the
parameters for the proxy server used by your service
provider.
Accessing the WAP Browser
To access the WAP Browser menu, proceed as follows.
1. When the idle screen is displayed, press the Menu
