HTC Magic Android sfr how to use it without full internet package

          The HTC Magic is a smartphone type mobile phone that runs on the Android operating system. Currently sold by several mobile operators, it can be used to browse the Internet, check email or to access online applications such as, but sometimes under certain conditions. The trick described below shows how to set up a WAP profile will be used for SFR. SFR customers who have a package Illimythics but do not have access to full Internet option.

          The functions available depending on your plan

          Contrary to what is explained by the SFR customer service (it's live) is not required to take out the option of Full Internet Illimythics. So the device is used with basic packages providing access internet (via WAP access SFR) as Illimythics base.

          Important: Obviously this means that some functions will not be accessible via the 3G network such as downloading, Android Market or video playback but access to Web services and type of Google webapps will be operational no extra cost. All these services will, however, blocked 3G access via a WiFi network (can be activated on all devices) which is more than enough. ex: If you use a webmail message type, for example you can easily access the browser, but POP3 access to meet their mails via the application of the phone will require wifi.

          The trick is described in the customer service web site of SFR (Home> My Account> My phone and my SIM card> Setting WAP / MMS) and requires manual configuration of the access point.
