How to connect to aol.com with iPAQ?
Posted on 2006-06-24
The user has an ipaq, about four months old. I'm not sure what version of IE it's running, but it is running windows mobile 5.0. In any case, he can connect to a wireless network and get on any website he wants to--except aol.com. When he goes there, it says the 'aol.com uses newer technology not fully suported by your current browser' and goes on to suggest you click on a link. That link suggests that we download 'AOL Explorer 1.5', but when I do that, and try to run the downloaded file, the ipaq says that 'AOLDNLD_1_5 is not a valid pocket pc application'.
Any idea what we're doing wrong here, and why we can't get on aol.com, and what to do about it?
Is it maybe something as simple as going to a mobile-compatible aol address, rather than the usual aol.com? I tried going to mymobile.aol.com--just guessing at a solution--but that just went into endless loops.
