Exclamation Using google to access URLs

Hey everyone, I have a mobile phone that I just set up to use free WAP, instead of the Verizon paid internet.

Everything worked well, except the "Homepage" field was locked, so it automatically is set to go to http://homepage

which directs to google when I open my phone. I need to access a website and its not on googles search list (or if it is, its hundreds of pages back). It's my email, and if i search for it in google, it just gets "did you mean", so is there any way to use google as a page that will access my URLs and stuff?

Thanks

Try this:
1. Search for CGI Proxy Site
2. Put in your website into the CGI Proxy
3. Access e-mail

might not work because your browser may not support CGI Proxies using SSL encryption? worth a try though.

colorblindjimbo thanks! works perfectly

Free WAP definitely exists; you can just use wap.google.com OR if you want a full fledged browser, check out http://www.zaksenterprises.com/

I use the second one and I have full access to facebook, gmail (can read and send mail), google, movies, weather, this forum (i can login/post and read), CNN, all other phpBB, vbulletin, or Invision forums, google maps, etc...

All free of charge! Fast service too!

So obviously I'm all set, my problem with the URLs is for my friend's phone who wants email but his phone doesnt allow the changing of the default homepage (unlike mine, where I just made a page with all of those links for easy access as my homepage)
