  Phonewebcam will work on over 400 different models of mobile phones, from 32 manufacturers, on both PAYG and contract. But there are a few exceptions. To find out for sure if your phone can run Phonewebcam, you should:

-   Check that your network is compatible
     -   Confirm that your phone can run java software

-   Ensure that your phone is configured with the correct internet settings.

-   Run the free Phonewebcam Compatibility test


There are sometimes problems with mobile operators not running compatible networks. This is known as 'garden walling' because they restrict which websites you can visit to only ones they approve of. It's unfortunate but there's not much we can do about it. The good news is more and more are stopping doing this every day, so if you find yours does it should be easy to find another which is ok.

Java phones

To run Phonewebcam on your handset, it must support java.

Generally, most phones released in the last couple of years will be fine. If in doubt, ask your dealer or use an internet search engine for your handset's specifications. You can also check our lists of compatible models here.

Internet settings

Like many networked Java applications, Phonewebcam requires an internet connection. Setting this up can sometimes be tricky - we have guides for popular models here.

Phonewebcam compatibility test

We recommend that you use our free Phonewebcam Compatibility Test on your handset to first check that your phone is able to run java applications like Phonewebcam. To do this, you'll need to download it to your handset manually. This is done differently on different phones, but generally they all involve you entering a special URL/address into your phone's browser. Look for an option similar to "Go to Address" or "Enter URL", then enter http://test.phonewebcam.com. When it connects, the download starts automatically and once installed on your phone just follow the prompts.
