Instructables

Free WAP with Verizon.

In this instructable I will be telling you how you can get free WAP from Verizon, using a phone that is Mobile Web capable.

NOTE: I am not responsible for anything that you may do to your phone. This is for educational purposes only. Use at your own risk.

NOTE: This free WAP hack uses your minutes.

NOTE: A common problem with newer phones is that you cannot edit the text. Verizon along with other companies have put locks on their phones' OS's so that people like us won't do what we're doing. The only way to bypass that is by getting a cable and editing your phone's files but, that's for another day.

I did a WAP set up for the Motorola KRZR using these instructions:

http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Free-Internet-on-a-Verizon-Wireless-RAZR-V3M

I followed them and it appeared that successfully made all the changes. Google now appeared in my list of Web Sessions and I was able to highlight it with a check mark.

The last instructions are "You should be taken back to the list of Web Sessions. Highlight Google then Press the center button (in the middle of the up/down/left/right keys) and it should begin your web session with Google.

Unforunately, when I select Google in the web session menu the next screen is Verizon Wireless Mobile Web . It says "Connecting...." and appears to be attempting a connection, but I eventually get a screen that says "For Wireless Internet Services, please dial *611."

I select Menu by pressing a key on the upper right and I'm brought to a Browser Menu. First on the list is VZW Home. I select it in hopes of changing it to Google (or anything else), but instead it once again seems to be accesssing the web via Verizon. The phone says "Sending...." at the bottom and "Waiting" at the top. Eventually, it says "Network Connection Lost."

Any ideas on what I am missing or doing wrong? I appreciate your replies.

is this just some gig to get us to use air time that gets charged
tarsen5 years ago
I have had an 8300 for some time. I previously set it up to use free wap. In trying to cut costs I called Verizon and changed to a new plan. The new plans are Internet for $15/month and no air time charges. Previous was $5.00 and air time charges. To get VZ Navigator you must sign up for $15/mon or by day at $1.99. Does any one know how to get free wap without paying the Verizon $15.00/mon or $1.99/day? Thanks for any help Tom
I have recently started a plan with verizon I have the lg 8350 and I am trying to find ways to get free stuff I have tried the wap thing but my 0 is locked it doesn't let me do anything any one know or could help me out ?

bigdadxxl6 years ago
Just for reference, if you have started or changed your plan with verizon since Nov 1, 2007, you will be charged for data even if you have your phone setup this way.
Okay i was wandering id anyone can help me i am useing bitpim and i when i got to detect phone it says "could not open port create file please i need help thanks so much
I tried everything mentioned above and still nothing. The thing is I have a prepaid verizon account that was once a contract account with the assecories of cable usb to get online on my home computer. Although I dont have the same contract i still manage to get on line for free any time of day through usb wire but I cant use my browser or get tones through my phone wap. I know I should just be thankful Im getting on line like I am but do you have any idea about what could be happening with my wap problem

I have a VX 8350 and the zero key is locked. How can I undo this?
Taylor G (author)  adamthiede6 years ago
I'm not sure what you mean by "locked". If you could give me a better description of your problem.
When i am on the contacts menu the zero key doesn't work. It won't bring up the service menus.

If you have the Motorola E815, here's how you get to the programming menu (this might also work on the V710): Hit the menu button (top middle one). Press the following keys quickly: 073887* Security code should be "000000". Go to "Web Sessions". Hit that middle menu button and choose "New". From here you can jump to step 6, and the rest should be similar to this instructable.
Actually, this might also work with other Motorola phones, including the RAZR and KRZR. I'm not sure, but its worth trying.

Oh, and if using public proxies isn't your thing, there are fast, secure and reliable proxies which only cost a dollar or two per month to use with your phone. I'm currently using myBitNet (from http://www.mycellconnect.com/) and it works great.
how do you start/ get to the program menu. I have a motorola V3m from verizon and i was having trouble finding the where do you start to type #073887*. if you dont get what i am trying to say like how do you start from the moment you open up your phone.
To get to the hidden Programming Menu, open your phone and type the following 8 keys without pausing for more than ~1 second between key presses: Menu 073887* If that doesn't work, try using this code: #073887* If it asks for a password, press 0 six times. If you still have any problems, just comment back or google "v3m programming menu". Good luck!
thanks i got that, i hav eno idea why it didn't work before, but when i entered all my stuff and i tried to connect it read: HTTP Error: 401 unathorized... what do i do now
I've been having a similar problem lately... maybe verizon figured out people were doing this and are blocking it? idk.
actually i got it working, i created an account at http://www.zaksenterprises.com/ and followed the instructions at http://wiki.zaksenterprises.com/index.php/WAP and it started working for me. I have a razr and it worked for me and im bettin gthat it would work for other phones as well.
a free WAP proxy= for any phones as long as you can program them i think...
here!

you do not need to contribute to the website or fill out anything besides free registration.

that worked perfect! Thanks a lot!

ZaksEnterprises.com is free and is private. Don't use one those public proxy's unless you want your data being transmitted to a site you don't know anything about.
glenn5113656 years ago
when i try to change the proxy I can not type anything. how can i change this thanks

Added another note to the Intro page.
http://knightknetwork.com/2007/10/24/verizon-wap-hackers-must-read-new-199mb-charge/I am getting confused, but hopefully I don't get charge a lot with Verizon. I got my WAP to work using the zaksenterprises.com, but hopefully I don't get charged for any data charges. I know that now you can get charged $1.99/MB for data, but I think that's only if you renew/get a new contract after Nov.: http://knightknetwork.com/2007/10/24/verizon-wap-hackers-must-read-new-199mb-charge/

I tried using the TCPIP that my desktop uses and it didn't work. I tried looking for "free proxy addresses" on google, and all these sites want my money for a list of them. Any ideas?
Taylor G (author)  neurolux6 years ago
Try a proxy from proxy.org. Those are free.

Great instructable. I've tried my proxy address as wap.google.com and as some of the anonymous proxy servers I found by searching the internet for "free proxy addresses" on my LG vx6100 and when I try to access the browser, I get an error saying I cannot connect. My port settings are as indicated in this instructable. What else might I be doing wrong?
