I have ATT (formerly Cingular) wireless, with internet access, on my motorola RazR phone, but haven't been able to figure out how to access the forums from my phone.  I can access the abbreviated PBS site, but not the forums, which I would really like to be able to do since I am often out of town without internet access except thru my phone.  If anyone can help, please, I'd be grateful!

If I recall correctly, when the site was overhauled a year ago, there was a statement that it wasn't going to be made compatible with cell phones and such. So, I'm not sure you can do so. Maybe someone else knows differently?

I've never tried. I handle my PBS business on my AT&T phone if I get an email on it whilst I am AFK but I have never tried to post here on it. I have posted to another forum from it and find it...tedious. I just upgraded my phone and it's better and faster than the older one but forum posting is still not enjoyable on the cell.

I am posting this reply from my Sidekick, so obviously I can access the forum from my phone.   I never thought to try until now!  In the past I just used my phone to access my Wishlist while I was out browsing books!

It depends on the browser you have on your phone.  I use Blazer on a Palm Treo 650 and can access the forums but I don't (because the GPRS connection makes it VERY slow).  Blazer will scale down pretty much any web page - whatever browser Motorola uses seems to only be able to handle sites that are intended for mobile use.
