    I havent tried it, I do not see any reason why you cant though. Provide a wap site address and I will be more than happy to try it out for you.

    wap.macrumors.com doesn't work, but mobile.macrumors.com does. wap.howardforums.com works just fine though. The OP just needs to type the address in and try it for themselves.

    You DON'T. Read the manual. iPhone doesn't support "WAP".
    If the website is in WML, you can forget about it. If its just stripped down HTML with no browser detection, you're probably okay. iPhone renders the idea of "WAP" completely obsolete. At this point, all mobile browsers will be incorporating similar mobile engines, better CPUs, and start moving towards web 2.0 compatibility as well (if they're not already).

    You'll find a crazy canvas out there of websites that either don't know any better, or fell behind the curve. Generally that content isn't worth watching anyway.

    Premierleague.com has a wap site that I cannot use. That content is worth watching.

    What has the wap site got that the real site doesn't? Also, there's about 20 apps for that league.

    Now it is years after the OP was written ... HOWEVER if anyone still wants to know how ...

    Opera Mini (downloadable from the iTunes App Store) is an alternative web browser for the iPhone that can handle wap/"mobile" sites by changing the settings ("mobile" mode should be turned ON - it is OFF by default)
