Question 6620: can you access the "Web" - the WHOLE web?

I was pleased to find an application available from AT&T (one way: search, maps, beyond mMode) called "AskMe" and "AskMe++". These proport to provide a link between a phone and the WWW either by emulation or some kind of conversion, etc.

Well, it doesn't load - AT&T spent quite a bit of time and finally, with no documentation, decided "your phone must not support this".

Basically I went to AskMe and said "buy", it said $1.50 a month, I agreed, it said "download", and when I did the phone gave an error message.

I have also purchased PDF+, and the QuickSheet, QuickWord, and QuickPoint (via their pro pack). Mixed results. May be trying to give it "too much to do" but I have had it open spreadsheets with thousands of lines, etc.

SO is there a tool for the 6620 that will access the web via some kind of interface?

When AT&T tried it on a Motorola phone (type unknown) it WORKED, so I suggest the web page is 'wrong' in that it doesn't test or ask what phone you have, and instead downloads only for the phones on which it works, giving an error message on others.

What id do is format the phone so its once again clean and free from some fu@k ups that previous applications may have triggered. Then go with the installation of your programs.

Smile Try...

Try using NetFront 3.1. You can access any html webpage with this full feature web browser. I have it loaded on my 6600 and am able to access any webpage.

The "WHOLE web" is a broad concept, I think.

Anyway, you can get to "almost the whole web" even with the built-in browser of your phone (+ of course, email using Internet standard access protocols; POP3/IMAP4 for receiving and SMTP for sending).


The main thing is to have the so called "Internet Access Point" (IAP) settings from your mobile operator/carrier/service provider (or whatever you like to call them).

Then you'd use this IAP as the default access point for the browser, or specifically for bookmarks (with the default access point in that case most likely being your operators WAP Access Point; WAP = Wireless Application Protocol).

I think you might be able to get the proper AT&T settings through one of Nokia's support pages: http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,,32863,00.html

If you feel the built-in browser is not able to take you to every web site you wish, there are optional, commercial browsers as well:
Access NetFront: http://www.access.co.jp/english/index.html
Opera: http://www.opera.com/
Reqwireless WebViewer: http://www.reqwireless.com/


In addition there are other "WHOLE web" tools for FTP, Instant Messaging, etc. Browse the application categories here, for example:
http://my-symbian.com/7650/applications/index.php

Or just the "Internet" category of apps there:
http://my-symbian.com/7650/applicati...=6&fldAuto=753

Yes, I just meant for example a simple page like my blues listing www.xmodem.net/ch - when I go there I get an error message, here, let me try it again . .. !!!!!!!!!!! It went in !!!!!!!!!!!! Cripes! confused... I was thinking only pages with xml or xhtml or special "small screen aware" apps would work!

Yah, I'm tied to my real mail - pretty cool!

Is my 6620 compatible with the often mentioned 6600? For example a pointer to the latest PC Suite software says "Select your phone" but not even a 6620!

Thanks for the many other pointers, will capture your fine reply and research further!

The 6600 is based on Series 60 2.0 (or Series 60 Platform 2nd Edition).

The 6620 is based on Series 60 2.1 (or Series 60 Platform 2nd Edition, Feature Pack 1).

See http://www.series60.com/ and http://forum.nokia.com/ for details.

In general most apps & settings for the 6600 will work on the 6620.

For PC Suite, the version that works with the 6620 is the PC Suite 6.x generation (latest is 6.3), which also works with the 7610 & will work with the 6260, 6630, 9500 (and also works with most of Nokia's current Series 40 phones, too).

The 6600 PC Suite is older and you need a version specifically for the 6600.

So, for the 6620 get PC Suite 6.3 from http://www.nokia.com/pcsuite (but select the 7610 from the list, if the 6620 is missing for whatever reason).
