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
or
to inform you that you are:
• connected to the Wireless Web.
• will be billed accordingly. The 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.
Configuring the WAP
Browser
Before using the WAP browser, you must set the
parameters for the proxy server used by your
service provider.
