Track the election on your mobile
If you have a WAP-compatible mobile phone, follow these simple instructions to be automatically sent a link to the BBC News election 2005 section.

This service is provided for UK mobile phone users only.

STEP ONE

Text the word ELECTION to 81010

The BBC will send you a text message within two minutes.

In most cases, the message will arrive in your normal text message inbox.

However, some phones have a WAP Push inbox where this message will be stored. This can often be found under the Services menu item.

STEP TWO

When the text message arrives, you should open it and select the link.

The link address may look like a normal internet address.

It will prompt you to make a connection (go online). There is no charge from the BBC, but your normal network charges will apply.

You should select Yes.

STEP THREE

You're in! BBC News on WAP is updated every minute of every day in the same way as the website.

Do not forget to save a bookmark to the site on your phone.

If you are not sure how to do that, consult your phone's handbook.

The address for BBC WAP is http://www.bbc.co.uk/mobile
