Searching The Database Using WAP


[WAP Phone]
What is WAP?

WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) is a method for accessing the Internet on your mobile phone. WAP services are often referred to as mobile Internet services. Much as your home computer allows you to browse the Internet using a phone line, your mobile phone can do the same.

Not every phone is WAP enabled, although most new phones are able to access WAP services.

How do I access the bench mark database with my phone?

To connect to the bench mark database enter the address wap.bench-marks.org.uk in your mobile phone's Internet browser. The exact method of browsing will depend on the model of phone that you have. Remember to create a bookmark for the database, to allow you to quickly access it in future.

What can I do using my phone?

Once you are connected, you can search for bench marks and trigs by flush bracket or grid reference, search fundamental bench marks by name, display neighbouring bench marks and trigs, read flush bracket logs, and view recent additions to the database.

Do I need to register a username to use wap.bench-marks.org.uk?

No, WAP access is available to anyone. You do not need to be registered with the bench-marks.org.uk site.

When I look at wap.bench-marks.org.uk with my web browser why am I asked to download a file?

Your browser is unable to display the information at wap.bench-marks.org.uk. The site is designed to be viewed on WAP phone. You will not be able to view it using a standard web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.

How much does it cost?

There is no charge to access the database, but your network provider will charge you their standard rate for a data call. The cost will depend on the call plan you have, and whether your connection is GPRS (usage-based charging) or CSD (time-based charging).

For full details on prices and how to use your phone for WAP browsing, see your network provider's web page.
