Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
If you have a phone that with the provider 3 there's a simple trick to allow you to access the entire internet on it's browser without having to go through 3 services and only what they want to allow you access to view.
Simply do the following.
Menu - 9 (for settings) - 5 (for access points) - Edit the 3 services.
Change the APN (down the bottom) from 3 services to 3netaccess.
Restart the phone.
And you can now access the entire internet through your phones browser.
Remember you'll have to change it back if you want to access 3 services. Changing it in the browser doesn't seem to work.
I have tried this on my U8110 and it worked perfectly.
There are Things to note:
* Remember that you are charged for all downloads (.4c per kb on most plans) so if your cautious about your phone bill ID advise staying away from sites with loads on pictures.
* Also, some people have had trouble where they have accessed a site with too much information on it and the phone has either froze or reset. The phone is not harmed by this but it's advisable you don't go to large sites on it for this or the above reason. If your phone freezes and you can't turn it off simply take the battery out and put it back in.
