How to make the LG Cookie Wi-Fi

The LG KP500, released in 2008 and known as the “LG Cookie,” is a phone created for people on a tight budget. As a result of this, the LG Cookie does lose some of the more prevalent features found in most phones. The ability to use Wi-Fi to access public hotspots, or even your home router is one of these significant omissions. A successor to the phone, the “LG Cookie WiFi T310i,” launched in 2010 and was Wi-Fi enabled. However, you can still surf the Internet via the regular LG Cookie's 2G network and its built-in web browser.

Tips and warnings

  • A 2G signal may not always be available to use the web browser with and will often be slower than accessing a dedicated Wi-Fi point.
  • A 2G network is not free to use like most Wi-Fi hotspots are and requires a "data package" from your provider.
