|Introducing WAP Circuit Switched Data (CSD) |
WAP CSD allows you to access modified Internet sites with your mobile phone.
|Features and Benefits |
WAP (CSD) is an Optus service which allows ‘WAP’ compatible GSM mobile phones to access modified sites of the Internet. WAP (CSD) is a time based service as opposed to a content or ‘package’ based service. This means you are charged for the time you spend connected to ‘WAP’ sites, not how much information you browse.
‘WAP’ (Wireless Application Protocol) is a mobile Internet technology that allows companies to publish information on the Internet in a format accessible by mobile phones. These modified Internet sites are accessed via ‘WAP’ browsers installed within ‘WAP’ enabled mobile phones.
