A couple of days ago I brought a panasonic vs2. One of the main reasons for choosing this phone was so I can check my emails(My other phone didn't have wap) when I am holiday and have no computer handy. But when I go to the hotmail website it says the phone doesn't support javascripts or they are being blocked.

Does anyone know how I can get it so I can run javascripts?

Any help will be very much appreciated.

You can't hotmail is not a WAP site its a web site. The handset has a pop/imap email client and if you want to check hotmail you will have to subscribe to there POP service for a few dollars a year and use the out going mail server smtp.vodafone.net.nz

Does Hotmail allow emails to be forwarded to another address? If so, you could set it up so that it forwards to a POP3 mailbox that you have access to.

And I see finally VF NZ is not using the smtp.paradise.net.nz server anymore? smtp.vodafone.net.nz used to resolve to the same address as smtp.paradise.net.nz

I can read my emails on my nokia 3105(I want to use vodafone because it's heaps cheaper) and I could read them on a sagem myv55 earlier this year. The hotmail that you use on a cellphone is different to the normal hotmail it's been designed espesially for mobile phones.

the VS2/VS3 have relativetivly strong Wap browers which seem capable of most web pages without javascript.

Yahoo mail has it's own Wap protal which worked very well (and yahoo mail is much better than "hot"mail anyway)

Hotmail is probably the worst bet to get working on any mobile device.

Gmail has some third party PocketPc logins (http://www.tweaks2k2.com/gmail/) which should work on this phone. My own email (www.myrealbox.com) actually natively supports wap to my surprise so i'm using that now.

there is a hotmail mobile i belive but only supported by a selec fre mobile providers (the'll be a fee involved!)
