This works fine with both SMS and Email on the GSM phones I have tried -
when your curser touches an what appears to be a URL it turns blue and
you can select it to go to the browser. On some models you may need to
select "search for URL" or similar in the menue first, but the effect is
the same. Obviously, URL must point to a wap site for the wap browser to
work as expected.
