Using email on your mobileThere are two ways you can connect to email on your mobile phone - direct access or GPRS.
Direct AccessConnect directly using the standard dial-up number. This method doesn't need a GPRS mobile phone service, but only supports slow connection speeds.
Connect using high-speed access, available through the latest mobile phones. GPRS connection speeds vary, depending on things such as your location and the number of subscribers.
Note: For GPRS access, you may need to use your phone provider's outgoing mail server so that you can send email from your phone. Receiving email should be unrestricted.
What you need
To get access to full email you need either a 'smartphone' or a PDA (Personal Data Assistant). A smartphone supports GPRS technology, giving you a faster connection. PDA's can connect through a compatible smartphone (usually using bluetooth) or wireless network.
As well as a suitable handset, you will also need a mobile service that provides access to the Internet using GPRS.
Setting up your handset
We can't provide help on setting up every type of mobile phone, but we can offer general advice which can be used for most handsets. You should check your mobile telephone's user guide to check what details you need to enter during setup.
