Setting up O2 WAP on a P900 / P910i

o2 SIM With O2 online (a UK mobile phone network operator), you get up to 1000 free SMS messages and an inclusive GPRS WAP allowance. It's possible to use a WAP browser on a Sony Ericsson P900/P910i to access WAP services via the O2 WAP portal.

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 Sony Ericsson P900 and the built-in Wap browser (the 'Internet' application)


Part 1 - Set up the dialup connection

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 general information on GPRS, see our GPRS page.

The following step-by-step instructions are for the UK o2 network. For other UK network WAP settings, see our WAP page

  1. From the menu page, go to Control panel, select the 'Connections' tab
  2. Select 'Internet accounts'
  3. Press 'New'. You'll need to select how you connect, either Dial-up or GPRS (see above)
    • For 'Dial-up', enter the following settings:
      • Account name: o2
      • Connection type: Dial-up
      • Username: o2wap
      • Password: password
      • Phone Number: +447712927927
    • For 'GPRS' enter the following settings:
      • Account name: o2
      • Connection type: GPRS

        Then press "Advanced", and enter:

      • Username: o2wap
      • Password: password
      • Address:

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.
  • 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.
