Setting up O2 WAP on a Nokia 7650

o2 SIMThis page gives information on how to set up your phone for WAP access with UK mobile phone operator O2 online o2 offers up to 1000 free SMS messages and an inclusive GPRS WAP allowance. We have settings for other UK network operators on our WAP page.

To get WAP access, you need the following:

  1. An O2 SIM Card (which gives you free text messages and a WAP allowance)
  2. A Nokia 7650 and the built-in Wap browser ('Services' from the main menu)

You need to decide whether you're going to connect using a dial-up service, or GPRS. All WAP handsets can cope with dial-up, and o2 online allow an amount of free dial-up WAP access with their tariffs. GPRS offers an always-on connection, and you're charged for the amount you download, not the length of time you're online. For details of GPRS, see our GPRS page.

To set up o2 WAP access, do the following:

  • Go to the "Services" application
  • Select Options | Settings | Default Access Point
  • Select Options | New Access Point | Use default settings
  • Enter the settings from the following table
  • Press 'Back' when complete. To access WAP, go to the 'Services' application and go to a WAP site. o2's homepage is

Problems connecting

If you're having problems connecting to WAP, try the following advice:

  • In order to use WAP, you must have data services enabled on your account. If you can't connect, contact your network operator (e.g. o2, Orange, Vodafone or T-Mobile), and ask them to ensure that your SIM Card is 'data-enabled'.
  • If trying to connect via GPRS, note that this is a different service to standard dial-up WAP access. Again, contact your network operator to ensure GPRS is enabled on your account.
  • Still having problems? Double-check your settings are 100% correct. The UK settings for the main network operators can be found on our WAP page. Alternatively, try getting the settings sent to your handset using the Nokia Configurator.
  • If you're still having problems, best bet is to ask in our forum with details of handset type and error messages. Alternatively, contact your network operator for help.
