Q. The settings have been sent numerous times to my phone but I can't receive them.
A. It is possible that your phone is not 'Over-The-Air' Compatible. This means that your phone cannot process the messages that deliver the settings. Hence you may have to use this guide to manually configure your phone.
Q. I have been able to get my phone configured, but I still can't seem to connect to the Internet. Why?
A. If your phone was manually configured you may need to check again to be sure that all the settings were properly done.

Q. Why do I lose connection in the middle of a WAP session?
A. This can be as a result of:
Difficulties in connection to the particular WAP site you are browsing.
Signal problem when connecting.
Time out of the WAP session.
You may have to retry your connection.
Q. Why can't I connect to sites that I was able to connect to before?
A. It may be possible that some of these sites have restrictions by the site owners or the site is down at the time you were trying to browse.
There may also be issues relating to signals where you are trying to browse from.
Q. I have fixed dialing on my phone, why can't I access the Internet?
