Can I use a smart phone with my Linksys wireless router to send emails?

Q: I am wondering if I can use a smart phone with my Linksys WRT54G 2.4GHz wireless router at home to send emails. If so, how can I find a list of compatible phones?

    I need a better understanding of your total needs before I can really make a suggestion.

    If you want a pocket sized device that can send and receive e-mails while within range of a WiFi network (like the one at your house) then I’d suggest an ipod Touch. You’ll get a nice set of features and no monthly fees.

    If you want a device that can send and receive e-mails and make phones calls while you have cell phone coverage then you have a pretty large list of choices. If you would like this device to be able to connect to a wifi network in addition to any cell phone network it might be in range of then look for ‘wifi support’ on the feature list.

    Checking the phone list on any major cell phone provider’s website will allow you to filter by features such as this one.
