Nokia 7110 FAQ page
(faq taken from
The 'Use number' feature is a Nokia method of selecting a phone number from a rendered WML deck, which offers some of the functionality of the WTAI still not included in the specification. Push and cookies are not included in the WAP 1.1 specification and hence not implemented in the Nokia 7110.
Q2. What is the cache size and cache management policy in the Nokia 7110?
The total cache size in the Nokia 7110 is 32.5 kilobytes. The number of entries depends on the size of each entry. The Max Cache Entry Size, i.e. the largest data size that can be cached is 1536 bytes.
Default cache storing time
Data are kept in the cache according to the HTTP caching rules. In case, no caching controls have been defined, the data are cached until the cache is cleared manually or it is removed because the cache is full.
The Control of cache storing
The cache storing in the client can be controlled using HTTP headers or by having HTTP-EQUIV meta tags in the WML content.If no caching is preferred, it is recommended to use the following meta tag:
<meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache"/>
Please note: If a URL is longer than 128 bytes the entry is NOT cached.
Q3. What is the maximum WML deck size?
The maximum item size is about 1.3 kilobytes binary. This is the maximum size both for a WML deck and for an image. The WML deck and images are downloaded separately.
Q4. What are the supported tags in the Nokia 7110?

Q7. Is the POST Method supported in the Nokia 7110?
Yes, it is.
Q8. Is the HTTP authentication supported?
The Nokia 7110 supports the basic HTTP authentication. For client identification the HTTP basic authentication is the only standard mechanism that has been mentioned in the WAP 1.1 specification.
Q9. Can the password be viewed on the Nokia 7110 display?
No, it cannot. Only asterisks will be displayed on the Nokia 7110 screen.
Q10. Does the Nokia 7110 have Java Virtual Machine or a similar system that would enable running Java applets?
No, it does not. These have not been included in the WAP 1.1 specification.
Q11. Is it possible to enter a destination URL through a terminal menu?
Yes, it is. A user can enter a URL straight to bookmarks using the "Add bookmarks" function.
In order to go to a specific URL the user needs to follow a link or to define the specific URL as a bookmark or as a homepage. In addition to that developers can implement an application (e.g. as a Java Servlet using the Nokia WAP Server) that asks the user to type a URL to an input field, then passes that URL as a argument to the servlet which then fetches the information from the specified URL.
Note! In the Nokia 7110 sw versions 4.94 and newer it is also possible to enter a destination URL directly as in a WWW browser through the 'Go to address' option.
Q12. How does the Bookmark function operate?
The user can save URLs as bookmarks while browsing on that page or by adding them manually after which the saved bookmarks can be accessed directly without first going to the home page. The maximum amount of bookmarks that can be stored is 15.
Note! In Nokia 7110 sw versions 4.94 and newer it is possible to receive WAP OTA bookmarks via SMS.
Q13. What are the network parameters? Are they stored on the phone or on the SIM card?
The network parameters are stored on the phone, not on the SIM card.
Common parameters for all bearers:
- Homepage: URL
- WAP session type: Continuous/Temporary connection
- Connection security: WTLS on/off
- Dial-up number: Access point phone number
- IP-address: IP-address for WAP Gateway
- Authentication type: Normal (PAP) / Secure (CHAP)
- Data call type: Analogue/ISDN
- Data call speed: Defines the baud rate used for connection Auto (only on analogue)/9600/14400
- User name: PPP-username
- Password: PPP-password
- Server number: SMSC phone number
- Service number: SMSC application number (WAP Gateway to use)
Note! In Nokia 7110 sw versions 4.94 and newer there are the following appearance settings:
Q14. Does the Nokia 7110 support WTLS? If it does, at what level?
Yes, it does. The Nokia 7110 supports class 2 Server Authentication.
Q15. Does the Nokia 7110 user need to set security on?
In WAP OTA settings you can specify if the Nokia 7110 should connect using a secure or insecure port. The end-user can however edit the selection.
Q16. How do I know that a connection with the Nokia 7110 is secure?
A Secure Icon is displayed on the phone user interface when the connection is secure.
Q17. Is a CA delivered with the Nokia 7110?
No, it is not but CA certificates can be downloaded from a relevant web site. A CA certificate is one content type among others and it can be downloaded easily.
Q18. Does the Nokia 7110 support step-up certificates?
The WAP Forum has not yet defined step-up certificates.
Q19. How does the handset set up a WTLS session? How is this initiated, i.e. how does the handset make the decision that a WTLS session is required?
The browser settings indicate whether WTLS should be used or not. If security is required from a service provider, the WAP gateway must deny any connections on unsecured channels or at least deny requests for sensitive content via unsecured channels.
Q20. Can I read my e-mails with the Nokia 7110?
The Nokia 7110 itself doesn't offer this functionality but it is possible to create a service which will enable use of the mail system through WAP. There are already mail systems available that support WAP.
Q21. Does the Nokia 7110 allow one to input an '@' or "/" characters in the input field?
Yes, it does. Pressing * will give you a list of special characters such as "@", "/", "~", etc.
Q22. Can I assign tasks and labels to the buttons in Nokia 7110?
In WML you can only assign the 'prev' task to the right-hand button. The label to it will be taken from the language settings. For example, in the case of English 'Back' is displayed in the label. If there is no page in the history stack no 'Back' button is displayed although it has been defined in the WML deck. In WMLscript there are also some methods to assign tasks and labels to the buttons.
Q23. Can I create animations or scrolling text?
Yes, you can by using the timer event.
Q24. Can I offer precompiled WMLpages?
The WML page can be in a compiled form already in the origin server. However, it needs to go through the WAP Gateway because the http request/responses are converted into the WAP request/responses and reversed at this point. The transfer is more efficient and no time is needed for encoding in the WAP Gateway when the pages are already compiled. A WAP Gateway may also cache the compiled pages and thus reduce the encoding overhead.
Q25. What is the maximum length for a username in the access point settings?
The maximum length is 32 characters.
Q26. What is the maximum length for a password in the access point settings?
The maximum length is 20 characters.
Q27. Is Over The Air (OTA) setting of parameters supported?
Yes, it is. All of the parameters in the browser settings can be received OTA via SMS.
Note! In Nokia 7110 sw versions 4.94 and newer WAP OTA bookmarks can be received via SMS.
Q28. Where can I get the Nokia 7110?
Please contact your local authorized Nokia dealer or local Nokia Sales Office. (You will find Nokia Business Group Addresses at www.nokia.com/inbrief/contact/index.html. Note: the business group is Nokia Mobile Phones.)
Q29. Will there be Nokia 7100 series phones for other standards?
The Nokia 7110 is for GSM900/1800 networks. Nokia has also introduced the Nokia 7160 for TDMA networks.
Q30. What are the MMI parameters: soft keys, back keys, home key, size of screen, number of characters...?
Screen size: 96 x 65 of which 96 x 44 is reserved for the content.
Max. Image size: 96 x 44
Number of rows in the screen: 4
Note! In Nokia 7110 sw versions 4.94 and newer:

Please see the Service Developer's Guide for the Nokia 7110.
Q31. What is the maximum URL length in Nokia 7110?
The maximum URL length to be defined as homepage is 100 characters. The maximum URL length to be defined as bookmark is 255 characters. Longer URLs than 255 are possible to use in links but it is advised not to use URLs longer than 255 characters since there may be lack of support in other parts of the WAP chain. Please see Nokia WAP phone characteristics table for more detailed information.
Q32. What is the max size of the titles on the 7110 screen, and in the text (including Upper and lower case characters)?
Headers come from the title of the card. Font is proportional so please try with Nokia WAP toolkit. We suggest you use 10 to 12 characters.
Q33. How is session handling possible to arrange in Nokia 7110?
The cookies are not supported by all WAP terminals including Nokia 7110. There are other ways to implement the session handling.
