WAP is mobile internet, for non-smartphone IE: LG Neon.
Internt.fido.ca is for all for non-Fido device or smartphone/internet stick.

Wow, thanks for the quick reply!

I bought a 1 day browsing package ($1) for my wife's phone (Sony T715a) to try out and used internet.fido.ca and managed to sync her contacts, email and calander with gmail. Is this the correct way to do it or should I use wap.fido.ca?

The unlimited browsing option is for use with WAP only, so essentially on the browser of the phone. Smiley

So, why did internrt.fido.ca work and will I be charged for extra usage? Is it possible to sync with gmail (calendar, email, contacts) with WAP?

OK, but, Is it possible to sync with gmail (calendar, email, contacts) with WAP?

Hello beatpete,

 

I apologize for the delay in my reply,

 

The unlimited on-device mobile browser provides all of the basic services of a computer based web browser  but simplified to operate within the restrictions of a phone, such as its smaller view screen. This implies that you should technically be able to synchronize your contacts with your Gmail account. Your calendar however, will most probably not sync due to compatibility issues. The SE T715a's embedded calendar  will not be recognized by Google.

 

Hope this helps,
