How to get WAP content on a Verizon v710 without MobileWeb?

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by treifamily@gmail.com, Feb 14, 2005.

  1. A few days ago, I upgraded my trusty (Verizon) Startac to a V710.

    I was told that I could access WAP content using voice minutes,
    albeit slowly, without paying for any extra access.

    Since I occasionally could use WAP access, but not $5/month
    worth, I thought this would be useful.

    However, I can't seem to do so. Opening the browser leads
    to a Mobile Web signup page, and the only alternative seems
    to require setting a 'Web Session', which looks similar to
    a network signup. Is this a signup for a WAP gateway? Are
    there any free ones?

    What am I doing wrong? If I can't get this going, I'm
    probably going to return the phone.

    I think someone is mixing up two different mobile features - you can use
    voice minutes to access the internet slowly (or fast, using the 1x network)
    by using the phone as a modem or use an alternate wap service for about half
    the cost of Verizon's WAP (or find a free wap service that works with your
    phone) at the same speed as their wap service.

    Someone already posted the url for a less expensive wap service... to access
    the internet, you need to connect the phone to the computer.

  4. After I posted the OA, I got a little more info, and set up
    a Web Session with

    URL: http://www.nuclearelephant.com
    Gateway IP 064.132.102.116
    Port 80

    .....and I still get taken to the 'sign up for Mobile Web'
    home page. I've tried a couple other alleged free
    gateways as well. It tries to connect for a minute,
    then falls back to the MW signup.

    My fear is that Verizon has still further fucked up the
    V710, and now allows access only thru their extortionatly
    priced service.

    This is a v710, sw rev level 1.03
