Just a general question but I am probably going to be away from my PC a lot during the rest of July and August.

Is it possible to read the RIBNET forums from a Mobile Phone equipped with WAP ?

Regards Nick R.

Most town libraries have internet these days, if you are going anywhere near a town that is!

I just checked there and I can access the forums using my Nokia 6230. I'm on O2 Ireland. It takes a while though. My buddy is flying through the pages using a 7610, so I guess it's down to the phone and it's memory, etc.

I can browse XHTML (WAP2.0) using a GPRS connection.
