WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) is a way of accessing information and services on the Internet from a mobile handset. This protocol was created for the purpose of overcoming the limitations imposed by the size and display abilities of mobile handsets.
WAP services can be accessed using GPRS – a new technology for transmitting data over the mobile network with speeds of up to 53.6 kb/s, where you will be charged only for the quantity of transferred data, regardless of how much time you spend on the Internet. WAP services can be used without restriction by all Telenor subscribers with handsets that support WAP. Telenor has created a new WAP portal for its subscribers, as the first station on the global mobile Internet, with many entertaining and informative sources that are updated on a daily basis.
If you are accessing WAP contents for the first time it is necessary for you to make certain modifications to your handset. Certain handset models can enter these settings automatically, by way of an SMS message.
