    Hi, I just bought a Nokia 3650 with AT&T service, and have their basic 1MB
    data (WAP?) service for $7.99/mo. I have e-mail accounts at Yahoo (which may
    have a wap site?) and webmail.directnic.com. The DirectNic mail is also
    linked to my PC's Outlook Express if that will be of any help. Directnic
    told me they don't yet have a wap site but may be working on one. I tried
    just their regular URL and got part of their regular login page with all the
    graphics, but it was huge! Only a small section at a time was viewable, and
    I scrolled down to where to put in username and password, and no text fields
    there to input data. As I downloaded a whole normal webpage, it probably
    wiped out half my 1MB allowance right there. Any more KB friendly and
    browser friendly way to visit my Directnic site? Thanks,

    Dan

    Nevermind, I finally figured out what I was doing wrong at Yahoo, and can
    now pop my DirectNic mail thru there too. In case anyone needs a wap address
    for yahoo, it's http://wap.oa.yahoo.com It will work on your pc too, but
    give you a real simple window with no ads!

    Why not just use the POP3 access built into the 3650??

    Yahoo certainly provide pop3 access. the most streamlined method available.
    Connect, get the mail, finished. no ad's, no extra HMTL junk. maybe 1kb of
    banter to connect, but thats about it - it doesn't even donload the email
    unless you want it to - so saving you even more.

    Martin, I just tried the route you suggested, and it's a no-go, I get the
    message "unable to connect to email server" on my 3650. It looks like you're
    in the UK. In the US at least, it looks like Yahoo charges $20US a year to
    use their POP3 forwarding service, as best I can tell. That's probably why
    it won't connect, and I don't feel like paying $20 to find out. Maybe there
    is a work-around? Thanks,

    Dan

    It might be that the access point you use only accepts WAP traffic. some
    providers have a different APN for WAP and internet use - and pop3 Email
    needs the internet one.

    I've never heard of yahoo charging for pop3 access - I've used mine that way
    for several years and never been charged, maybe I was just lucky to sign on
    before they started.

    Yahoo DOES charge for pop3 access.... unless some policy changed again....
    they started charging from 02/2002 or 2003 - cant remember... try
    www.softhome.net - generally good server uptime, abuse dept is great, and
    the best thing = very little spam!! :-)
