    /me tries again as Markos says.

    Hmm... I assume it seems to be working now. At least I'm right now reading about some RoN news.

    WML 1.1? Good, improves the compatibility.

    borrowing my intermediate techniques on killing with innocuous objects?

    It's thoughtful of Apolyton to provide it, but there's no way I'll use it. The only thing I used WAP for is local weather reports on demand.

    I'll be gormed if I want my moby ringing every time there's a new post on a forum. Cost is identical to regular calls here in the UK (FAR more expensive than most comparable countries).

    /me uses GPRS and doesn't thus need UMTS for now.

    In the meantime Markos could answer on my question, unless he wants to lose all potential users, just due to version incompatibilities.

    WAP?! That still exists? I thought it died years ago. Certainly should have, most useless protocol ever. Has always been doomed to be a transition protocol and never exceeded this.

    Had a WAP phone for years but never felt inclined to actually use it (for anything other than testing). Very expensive, wrong payment system, extremely limited bandwidth (thus slow and text-only), unreliable, unsafe, impractical to use (ever tried composing (or even reading) an email with 10 tiny keys on a screen of 4x15? ), no applications worth noting, etc. I've following/been involved in several major WAP projects, they all failed horribly. 3G is the future, if there is one (for mobile Internet).

    Oh well, it's nice Apolyton is providing the service. A few years ago I might even have used it

    "Your request for a service could not be fulfilled. Please try again or contact your operator if the problem persists."

    I assume something must be wrong with your WAP service, as I have no problems with WAP with any other domestic or foreign service. I repeat the question: which version of WML is it using?

    Which version of WML does it use? That determines pretty much its compatibility.

    wap is still expensive (at least here in greece), but it's not like we're puting in the forums (yet ), so normally you wont spent much time on it. checking the latest headlines and reading a couple of news items will take a few seconds.
