“Wireless Web” Services for Handheld Devices

If you have a web-enabled wireless device, you can access some of NACS’s services while mobile.

Many devices such as cell phones and PDAs (e.g. Palm Pilot or PocketPC) advertise a “wireless web” feature. Such devices contain a web browser that understands web content which is written in WML (Wireless Markup Language). As these devices typically have much slower data speeds and less memory than a standard PC, WML content is tuned to their small screens and limited data speeds.

With NACS’s WML home page, you can search for someone’s phone number in UCI’s phone directory, read email with Webmail or check your CorporateTime calendar, all from your cell phone. (“Wireless web” features often come with a supplemental service fee. Contact your service provider for information on fees and access coverage.)
