    Yeah i m using this application on my set its realy super

  2. @ Raza,
    Thats surprising. Did you talk to their CSR on this issue?

  3. Raza says:

    much appreciated to learn above. But it said that “this service doesn’t currently support your set” while the sets were :

    Nokia 6280
    Sony Ericsson Z5301

    in my opinion these models do fall in the range suggested for use of above service.

    So what exactly is special here? Most GPRS based phones, specially nokia symbian based phones, can use the pop client built into the phone.
    The value proposition completely escapes me here!
