About the
WAP Browser
Your phone comes equipped with a WAP (Wireless
Application Protocol) Browser which makes it
possible for you to access the Wireless Web.
Setting Up the
WAP Browser
Before using the WAP Browser, you must set the
parameters for the proxy server used by your
service provider.
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 (
or
) appears on the display
to inform you that you are:
• 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.
Accessing the WAP Browser
To access the WAP Browser menu:
1. When the idle screen displays, press the Menu
soft key to enter menu mode.
