Most of the latest LG cell phones come equipped with the mobile Internet feature. This feature enables users to access a condensed version of the Internet that has been minimized, with advanced Java applications, so Web sites can load effectively. So checking email from an LG phone shouldn't be a problem, as most of the reputable email clients do have mobile versions of their emailing platform available.
Things You'll Need
- LG phone
- Mobile Internet access
Access the LG cell phone's mobile Internet feature through the main menu.
Press the right soft key at the top of the LG mobile keypad to open the "Options" settings for the mobile browser.
Use the mobile keypad's directional down arrow key, and highlight the "Go to URL" option. Press the menu key to go to this screen in the mobile Internet browser. (Wording for this option may vary, depending on the model of your LG cell phone. This option may also say, "Enter URL Address", "Add URL Address" or a similar phrase.)
Type your emailing client's URL address into the blank data form that will appear, using the LG mobile keypad. (See resources for URL address entry information.) Press the "OK" key.
Go to the email link on the site's mobile homepage, to redirect your mobile Internet browser to your email log-in screen.
Use the phone's mobile keypad to enter your usual email log-in information. Then, press the "Menu" key to log-in and check your email. A compressed version of your email inbox will appear, without frames, making it easier for the information to display in your browser.
Tips & Warnings
- In Step 3, mobile URL address entry is different from the actual Internet browser. Most mobile URL addresses for emailing clients begin with "m.", rather than "www.", which signifies "mobile". (For example: m.yahoo.com is the URL for mobile Yahoo!, as opposed to www.yahoo.com on a full Internet browser.)
- Make checking email from your LG phone simple. Some email clients offer direct links to their mobile emailing platform. Send a mobile link to your cell phone, via SMS text message, from your email provider's Web site. These links serve as a direct link to the email service provider's mobile log-in page, so you don't have to waste time searching for it on your mobile Internet. (See resources for select mobile links.)
- Some of the more recent, digitally enhanced LG cell phones may come equipped with some of the mobile emailing clients saved as Favorites to the mobile browser's pre-installed settings.
- Every emailing client does not have Java applications for mobile Internet capabilities. You may be able to access the homepage or log-in screen from your LG phone, but due to the frames in emailing platforms, the site may not display properly, or appear blank in your mobile browser.
- Attachments may not be accessible for viewing or downloading in mobile Internet, depending on the type of LG cell phone you are using.
- Mobile Internet may incur charges on your next bill. If you do not have mobile Internet access included in your calling plan, you could be charged per kilobyte for Internet access.
