About the WAP
Browser
Setting Up the WAP
Browser
Your phone comes equipped with a WAP
(Wireless Application Protocol) browser, making
it possible for you to access the Wireless Web.
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®.
Accessing the WAP Browser
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:
• connected to the Wireless Web.
• 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
minimize your bill.
To enter the WAP Browser menu to access the
WAP browser:
1. When the idle screen displays, press the
Menu soft key to enter menu mode.
