    Hi,

    I often check my Yahoo! e-mail from my Sprint cell phone. However, when you
    select a message, it downloads only a small fragment of the message
    (literally less than a typical paragraph) which you read and then select
    'Next...' to retrieve the next fragment. This works, but it's very
    frustrating to spend about one second reading, 5 seconds waiting for the
    next fragment, and repeating.

    I don't suppose there's any way to configure things such that it downloads a
    much larger chunk of the message at a time? I'd much rather wait 15-30
    seconds to get all of a reasonable sized message on the screen at once
    rather than having to keep clicking 'next.'

    It also seems to me that the transfers are down in a very inefficient
    manner -- about half of all the text on the screen are the various menu
    options (previous message, next message, delete, etc.), and I expect all of
    this is transferred every single time you hit 'next.

    Thanks,
    ---Joel Kolstad

    The choice on how, exactly, a web page renders belongs to=20
    the web page provider. In this case, it's Yahoo Mail=20
    that's decided to function that way.

    In addition to that, the Network is aware of the device type being
    used to access web content, and can re-render that content to better
    fit each device.
