Free To browse and then not???

after getting my new nokia n80 (on a Three contract) and eventually getting the wifi conection to work i was extremly happy finding that i can browse the net. but after about 30 mins of browing i then every time i tried to search in google i go to a Add_on page and get a message saying "hey why dont you use yahoo and pay us" . whats going on? have i changed my settings. i dont understand why ineed to pay 3 to use my own WIFI connection. if anyone has any insight to this i would be very greatfull.

Are you using the default browser 'services' or the better 'Web' one?

I Use 'Web' and have had no ads whilst browsing

With '3', if you go through their Internet Access Point, then they have a deal with Yahoo to access some content, but they do not offer full, open Internet access.

With WLAN/WiFi you should be bypassing Yahoo and '3' entirely (unless you use a Yahoo or '3' owned WLAN hotspot).


browse, free
