If you have been in a situation where you weren't able to enter the note data immediately into EBT and had to write down the serial numbers, this message is just for you. Now you can enter your new notes on the fly without using a computer at all -- all you need is:
- a GSM phone with WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) functionality
- the necessary data transfer services enabled from your GSM operator (GSM data or GPRS (preferred))
- a regular user account at EBT
- a link to http://wap.eurobilltracker.eu/ to access the system using your phone
It asks for your EBT email+password and after it has asked your preferences (country etc), it'll give you a web address that is suitable for bookmarking. Using this bookmark you don't have to enter your email+password any more, you can get directly to the note entering page by using that address. Here's the disclaimer that is linked from the above page:
WAP wrote:This is a Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) gateway for EuroBillTracker. More information about EuroBillTracker can be found at www.eurobilltracker.com. This gateway was written by avij.
You need to be a registered EBT user before you can use this gateway. After you've created an user account at EBT, use the same email+password pair
to log in to this WAP gateway. The passwords are stored in a secure way on the web server. You will be given your own personal URL (like http://wap.eurobilltracker.eu/cgi-bin/e ... bfefcdfeae) after you've entered your email+password. It is suggested to place that link to your phone's bookmarks for ease of use. The EBT password is checked only when you're submitting your notes to EBT -- the password is not checked when doing the initial login to this WAP gateway. Please use the usual WWW interface to make sure that your bill gets entered properly to the EBT database.
In any case, if you encounter any problems, send me email to eurowap -- miuku -- net or leave me a message on the EBT forums on forum.eurobilltracker.eu.
This can be integrated directly into EBT if the webmaster has the time to make the necessary changes (which may be non-trivial depending on the current EBT code), but if he doesn't have the time I'll be happy to keep the WAP page running smoothly at my own website as a service for other EBTers.
edit: changed the link to the official address and updated the disclaimer
