Introduction: Free WAP With Verizon.

Picture of 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.

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

Picture of 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!

Picture of 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.

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

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.

lambologo (author)2009-08-17

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

tarsen (author)2009-04-05

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

kimberly7281 (author)2009-01-08

CJSS (author)2008-10-25

bigdadxxl (author)2008-02-19

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.

kristina0726 (author)2008-02-14

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

ibcnub4ubcni (author)2008-02-04

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

adamthiede (author)2008-02-01

I have a VX 8350 and the zero key is locked. How can I undo this?

Taylor G (author)adamthiede2008-02-01

I'm not sure what you mean by "locked". If you could give me a better description of your problem.

adamthiede (author)Taylor G2008-02-03

When i am on the contacts menu the zero key doesn't work. It won't bring up the service menus.

fenderrock (author)2007-06-16

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.

fenderrock (author)fenderrock2007-06-16

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 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 and followed the instructions at 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.

dfc849 (author)fenderrock2007-07-27

a free WAP proxy= for any phones as long as you can program them i think...

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

ra13 (author)2008-01-15

that worked perfect! Thanks a lot!

bobhinkle (author)2007-12-17 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.

glenn511365 (author)2007-12-15

when i try to change the proxy I can not type anything. how can i change this thanks

Taylor G (author)glenn5113652007-12-16

Added another note to the Intro page.

Alexizupinhea (author)2007-11-15 am getting confused, but hopefully I don't get charge a lot with Verizon. I got my WAP to work using the, 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.:

neurolux (author)2007-10-29

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)neurolux2007-10-29

Try a proxy from Those are free.

tony48 (author)2007-10-16

What are WAP?

bobhinkle (author)2007-10-07

If you guys are still having problems setting up your wap there is are wiki instructions over at with instructions for all kinds of phones.

btta1 (author)2007-09-22

Great instructable. I've tried my proxy address as 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?

legr8est1234 (author)2007-06-15

I can't get past Step 6. I've reached the "window" where I get "Primary Address" and "Secondary Address". I press "Primary Address" and it gives me a text field, where I see a link there already. I have three options at the bottom: Cancel, Save, and Abc. Besides Cancel and Save, I cannot do anything else. It's like it's intentionally blocked so that you can't change those proxy addresses. The same thing happens with the "Secondary Address" also. I'm thinking Verizon did this on purpose and it worked for you because you have bought the phone earlier when they didn't think of this problem. BTW, I have the LG VX8600, as well. I'm not sure what's going on.

dukejones (author)legr8est12342007-08-02

You're absolutely right-- so you'll just have to unlock it manually.
unlock wap edit function
I'm still waiting for my usb cable.. I'm drooling in anticipation.

legr8est1234 (author)dukejones2007-08-19

That partially worked! I did unlock that using BitPim and change the proxy address settings. I've tried a few free proxy addresses, but none of them seem not work (I either get Network Unavailabe-Retry later or Network Connection lost). Signal isn't a problem (I've tried it when it was full), but something is.

dukejones (author)2007-08-02

The new LG VX8600 phones with Ver03 of Verizon's crappy software have a different Service Menu code. Just type "program8600" + SND (Then the 6 digit password - probably all 0's.)

Materman (author)dukejones2007-08-02

I tried that with my 8300 version 3 but screen went blank, Where and when do you type the program8300? Thanks, can't wait...

Materman (author)2007-07-28

The newest lg vx8300 has software that has blocked the ability to change the ip address. Anyway to hack around this? When you go to change it there is no cursor available to erase what's there and the keyboard doesn't allow input of any letters.

newkiraj (author)2007-07-18

ok thats just awesome. i did it w/ my chocolate and it worked fine. thanks!

sdman11890 (author)2007-06-13

I can get past the password and stuff, but it won't let me edit the "Proxy Address Setting." Any way to get around this that you know of? Same exact phone btw.
