Dictionary.com Wireless

Now you can access Dictionary.com through your WAP-enabled mobile phone. (Check with your service provider to find out if your phone is WAP-enabled.) Here's how:

  • Bring up your phone's mini-browser.
  • Type in the address field either of the following addresses:
    • dictionary.com/hdml
    • dictionary.com/wml
  • Check with your service provider if you are not sure how to do this.
  • One or the other address might not work, depending on your phone.

If you have a Sprint PCS mobile phone, it's even easier:

  • Bring up your mini-browser in your phone.
  • Choose the "Tools and Reference" folder
  • Choose Dictionary.com
  • Call Sprint PCS customer care if you have any questions.

The following services are available on our wireless site:

  • Definitions from the WordNet dictionary.
