12. Minibrowser


is a network service. See "Network services," p. 6, for more information.

Your phone has a built-in mobile Web browser you can use to connect to selected
services on the mobile internet. If your wireless service provider supports this
feature, you can view weather reports, check news or flight times, view financial
information, and much more. The Web browser on your phone can display
WAP-based content.

Your device may have some bookmarks loaded for sites not affiliated with Nokia.
Nokia does not warrant or endorse these sites. If you choose to access them,
you should take the same precautions, for security or content, as you would
with any internet site.

If the security indicator (

) is displayed during a connection, the data

transmission between the device and the internet gateway or server is encrypted.
The service provider secures the data transmission between the gateway and the
content server.

Important: Use only services that you trust and that offer adequate
security and protection against harmful software.

Mobile internet access

Because mobile internet content is designed to be viewed from your phone,
your wireless provider is now your mobile internet service provider as well.

Your wireless provider has created a home page and set up your browser to
go to this page when you log on to the mobile internet. Once at your service
provider’s home page, you may find links to a number of other sites.

It should not be necessary to manually configure the browser on your phone.
Normally this is done by your wireless provider when you subscribe to the
feature. Contact your wireless provider if you have problems using the browser.

Sign on to the mobile internet






After a brief pause, your phone attempts to connect to your wireless provider’s home
page. If you receive an error message, your phone may not be set up for browsing.
Contact your wireless provider to make sure that your phone is configured properly.

Navigate the mobile internet

Since your phone screen is much smaller than a computer screen, mobile internet
content is displayed differently than you may be accustomed to seeing. This section
contains guidelines for using phone keys to navigate a WAP site.

Phone keys

To browse the WAP site, scroll up or down.

Select a highlighted item.

To enter text, press # to switch text input modes, and then press 0-9.

To enter special characters, press *.

Receive a call while online

Depending on your wireless service provider, you may still be able to receive
a voice call while using the WAP browser.

To answer the incoming call, press the call key.

To reject the incoming call, press the end key.

After you end your voice call, the mobile internet connection automatically resumes.

If your wireless service provider does not support incoming calls while browsing,
incoming calls are automatically forwarded to voice mail.

Make an emergency call while online

You can end your data connection and make an emergency call.

1. To close your mobile internet connection, press the end key.

2. Press the end key as many times as needed to clear the display and ready

the phone for calls.

3. Enter the emergency number for your present location. Emergency numbers

vary by location.

4. Press the call key.

Clear the cache and disconnect

A cache is a memory location that is used to store data temporarily. If you have
tried to access or have accessed confidential information requiring passwords,
empty the cache after each use. The information or services you have accessed
are stored in the cache. To empty the cache while in the browser menu, select
Navigate > Advanced > Clear. Scroll to and select Cache > Clear. The cache
also clears when you press and hold the end key to power off your device.

To close your mobile internet connection while browsing, press the end key.
