    nokia e71 straight talk youtube

    hello howard forums! ive had straight talk for about a year and recently learned about this site while searching for a cellphone that plays youtube videos. i found the nokia e71 and i have a quick question. do you have to connect to a wifi signal to watch youtube videos? the reason i ask is because the phone i have now (lg220c) connects to the internet by itself i just cant watch youtube videos on it.

    Try this in your browser...
    m.youtube.com
    This is the mobile version of their website. Hope this helps...

    I have an LG 220C and I just now went to m.youtube.com.
    When I tried playing a video I got "Error: malformed URL"

    As of todays date I believe the 2 Nokia phones are the only Straight Talk branded phones that play Utube videos.

    That phone doesn't have any video capabilities so it wont play Youtube or any vidoes at all.

    Well Yes and No. The 2 Nokias are the only ones that will work on Youtube directly and stream the videos. Some of the other phones with video players such as the LG 620g can download Youtube videos from Vuclip and play them in the video player. They will not stream though and longer videos will take a while to download but they do work. I had a LG 620g when they first came out and burnt Vuclip up on it.

    Yeah, I pretty much knew it wouldn't. I had to test the theory that 'm.youtube.com' would somehow magically work though.

    No, 3G on the Nokia's works just fine. As would EDGE/GPRS, but it would be much slower.
