    i was thinking of enabling my site for wap in the future. and i was wondering what exaclty it looks like. i don't have a wap phone, is it possible that there is "your webpage looks like this on a wap phone." just like the ones that show how your page looks like on netscape and internet explorer. thanks...

    ~poil11~ There are many WAP/WML resource sites that have up-to-date information about the mobile internet -- here are just a few that are very informative...even a WAP Editor to try out.

    "WAPDrive - WAP news, WML tutorial"
    "WAP.com" ~ Making existing web content available to the mobile Internet
    "Wireless FAQs"

    "WAP Editor Download - PC Plus Magazine"

    WAP actually looks like nothing since it is Protocol much like HTTP or even FM Radio...

    HDML/WML looks like HTML 2.0 and is what you use to build your WAP enabled pages with.

    I'm using the web on my phone all the time!

    All you have is a list of text link options, no graphical abilities whatsoever.

    The selection tools are quite limited on a phone so it would kinda be hard to navigate any other way than just text links. Scroll up/scroll down push "ok" button to read the article or whatever.

    I sell these phones for Sprint 8 hours a day and have had the pleasure to use most every kind made by every company! It's all the same. It should be quite easy to make a page for one.
