Choose the best WAP phone by first identifying the features that you most desire and need. Next, spend time comparing several different mobile phones to determine which ones have the highest ratings for customer satisfaction, battery life, call quality and reliable connectivity. Select the WAP phone that comes closest to meeting your needs and your style for the most affordable price.

When considering a wireless application protocol phone, known simply as a WAP phone, it is best to first put some thought into the features you absolutely must have, as well as those that you would like to have even if they are not a necessity. For instance, in addition to an Internet connection, you will need a reliable, fast browser and a screen that is a comfortable viewing size. Some phones also allow you to connect to nearby Wi-Fi hotspots, which may decrease download times for videos, photos and documents, as well as offer Internet service when a mobile provider’s Internet is not accessible. Other features to consider are the amount of memory a phone provides, its battery life and how user-friendly the keypad is. Thinking about the importance of these features ahead of time will help you in choosing the phone that best meets your needs.


Several different Internet ready mobile phone manufacturers make cell phones for general consumer use. Often referred to as smartphones, before selecting a WAP phone, familiarize yourself with the various types and models available to you. Keeping the features you want in mind, eliminate those that do not meet your standard. Do not be distracted by features, such as game applications, camera features and other applications that may be enticing, but may not be crucial to your needs.

Some WAP phone manufacturers have designed devices that allow users to connect other portable devices to a WAP Internet connection. This can come in handy if you are traveling and need to use your phone to supply an Internet connection to a laptop, a notepad or another computer device. If this feature is one you are likely to use often, then select a WAP phone accordingly.

Read current WAP phone user reviews on technology websites and mobile phone forums. Specifically, look for feedback on the phones that you are considering and pay close attention to the feedback that other users offer. Before purchasing the phone you like best, visit a retail location to handle the phone in person. Select the mobile Internet phone that offers your most important features and that suits your personal style.
