Very often we hear questions like is it possible to use HandyWi on phones without WLAN support, for example Nokia 6210 Navigator or Nokia N73? The answer is definite, yes you can use HandyWi on these phones and benefit from using our Landmarks service, you can upload them to our server and watch online here. However, only only connectivity option you have is 3G or EDGE, as WLAN hardware is missing on these devices. For more information please refer to this FAQ entry.
