Finding the "Go to URL" Function

On Your Cell Phone
 

Your cell phone web browser is similar to the web browser that you use everyday on your computer.  It has the capability to follow hyperlinks from a home page, and to go directly to a website address ("URL") that you type in.  You can also bookmark pages, so that you can easily get to them again.  (Bookmarks are sometimes called "Favorites")

The exact steps to take and buttons to push to do this will vary by cell phone service provider and by handset make and model.  See examples for specific cell phones and carriers...

Scroll down to see generalized steps to access the "Go To URL" function, by carrier.  Because there are literally thousands of different cell phones, these are generic steps.  You may have to experiment to discover how to do it on your phone.  NOTE:  You need to find the "go to" function on your phone (sometimes labeled as "enter site, or similar.) This is not the same as a "Find" or "Search" function.  You want to instruct your phone browser to go directly to a URL.

With most phones, you can leave out the "http://" part of the URL, you can usually enter just the address, e.g. "waptest.scoutpal.com"

Once you have gone to a web page, you can then add it to your bookmarks (or favorites) list.  Again, the exact buttons to push in order to make a bookmark will vary from phone to phone.  (On many phones, you press and hold a "menu" key, then look for the choice to mark the page.)

You may need to contact your cell phone company for details on how to operate your cell phone browser.  Most cellular carriers have tutorials on their websites.  For example, Sprint has a web page with links to their tutorials.  You will want to look for a tutorial that covers "Web Browsing", "Wireless Data Services", "Wireless Web Access", or similar.
