The Best Mobile Phone Websites- No Smartphone Required

"Regular" Mobile Phones Want a Piece of the Pie

What?

No Iphone!

No Android!

No Blackberry!

You can still enjoy the mobile web with a "regular" non-smartphone.

This hub points to some of my favorite mobile websites. Most website images use Opera Mini 5.

Don't have Opera Mini?

All of these websites should work on native phone browsers as well.

You have offered a lot of information all in this one hub for those who might be interested. Technologically speaking, we are still crawling out of our caves after drawing some neat petroglyphs. Haha!

@CherokeeRyda, Thanks for the feedback!

Flash Player=There is no flash player. Phones are sort of the last Flash frontier, per se.

Message Tones: Really good question! It looks like the answer is no. You can have different rings per contact, but it does not let you assign separate message tones. You only get one default message tone, unfortunately.

Hey Dana,,i wanted to thank u for all your help..I love this phone now,thanks 2 you..but i do have a question...Is there a way to update the flash player in this phone..One more,,can you have a message tone for each contact like other phones? I don't know how you do it--but I am grateful...thx Dana...
