    I'm sure this is supposed to be easy but I've never done it before - a complete mobile phone novice I'm afraid.

    Apparently I have to send an 'SMS Text' to a given number with given text and then they send me a link to download the tone. I have tried sending the required text message but nothing has come back.

    So, a few questions:

    1. Is an SMS text message different to a standard text message? If so, how do I send the former?

    2. When you are sent a link by text, how on earth do you 'visit this by WAP or GPRS'?

    My phone is a Nokia 3510i by the way.

    Many thanks for any help.

    Matt.

    An "SMS Text" is a regular text message, they will text you back (at some point) with a link to a WAP site (the mobile equivalent of the internet). You will need to visit the address via your phone.

    To check whether you're phone is set up correctly for WAP - select "Services" from your menu, and click "Home". If a page loads up, you're all set up, if not, post back here with your network provider and i'll see if I can talk you through the settings.

    To visit the site when they send you the link, write it down on a piece of paper, then select "Go To Address" from under the Services Menu. Type the address in, and click "OK".

    All the best,

    K.
