Introduction: Free WAP With Verizon.

About: I'm a dude who likes tinkering with stuff.

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.

Step 1: Get Supplies

Okay, so what you need for this hack is:

1. An LG phone provided by Verizon Wireless. (I haven't tried it with any other phones or service providers)
2. Access to a computer.
3. Half a brain.

Step 2: Get Started

Now you will be taught how to hack your phone for free WAP.

Note: Every time you change something you want to press the middle button on the GUI it should be the button that says SAVE.

1. Open up your phone and press MENU.
2. Hit "0".
3. You will get a pop-up asking for the service code. It will be "000000", no quotes, if it isn't then try common ones like "123456", "654321", "111111", if those don't work then you have to stop here...sorry.
4. Go down to WAP Setting.
5. Open up "Proxy Address Setting".
6. Change the Primary and Secondary Addresses by clicking them and retyping the address like you would a text message. Change them to either your IP address or a proxy address. You can find proxies by doing a search on Google for "free proxy addresses". Tons should come up.
7. Then go back to WAP Setting by pressing clear once. Then go to Proxy Port Setting. Check all four of them. The numbers should go like this. (Sorry no pictures).
Primary Port: 8080
Primary LXL Port: 0443
Secondary Port: 8080
Secondary LXL Port: 0443
If they aren't what i listed then change them.
8. Then go to WAP Setting again, by pressing clear. Goto "Homepage" and change it to your favorite search engine, or whatever your homepage is on your computer.
9. Then just press clear and your phone should restart. If it doesn't then do a hard reset, by pressing and holding the END key.
10. Have fun!

Step 3: OH-NO!

Okay, so let's say that you f**ked something up really badly okay?

You have a few options.
a. Bring it into a Verizon store and have them fix it. You probably will get charged for changing system properties, at the least. (You may also, very probable, get kicked off of your plan, this is not the best way.)
b. Go into the service menu. Go to WAP Setting. Go to Clear Perm Mem. Say Yes. Then your phone should reset. Go back to WAP Setting and then go to Reset Browser. Say Yes. Your phone should reset. And now your phone is back to normal, well atleast the WAP. Who knows what you do to your phone! Hehehe.

Step 4: Final Notes

If you have any suggestions for other types of phones/providers I will do my best to find out how to accomplish those hacks.

Thanks,
Taylor.

    Can anyone tell me how to get WAP on a Sharp Sprint phone running an Android OS?

    Hi can u tell me how to hack a motorola moto G on verizon prepaid android phone to get free internet , plz help, i cant afford to pay verizons outragous prices for intermet

    Can any1 help me with my phone please its a prepaid and it doesnt have SIM card.....some1 locked my phone using an e-mail address but they wont tell me what it is and they also changed my number....it was one of my brothers....My phone is a Verizon Lg Android touch screen...i want to reset it but i dont know how to.....and i can do anything with it because it tells me to unlock it using my google account and i dont have one

    I have a Droid X that I want to use for internet only. I found it so it doesnt have a phone number with it. I want to get the internet on it to play games. Is there a way to do this ? I have a Verizon MiFi for internet on my computer but where I live I dont get wifi........any suggestions ??

    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.

    This is a common problem on newer phones. Verizon along with other companies have put locks on their phone OS 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. Did that answer your question?

    is this just some gig to get us to use air time that gets charged

    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 ?
