    Can anyone confirm if an android phone, D2 in particular, be used to log into and post to the University of Phoenix online courses. I have an iphone 3gs (wifi only) and that is able to, but am interested in an android.

    What is special about it that would stop an android from viewing it? I can't think of anything that would stop it

    I am not sure what makes the webpage different, but when I tried to log in with my BB Storm 1, it would not let me. I thought itd b a flash issue, but the iphone picked it up. I am glad to hear that there should be no problem as that is one of my wife's requirements if we are to upgrade our phones...
    thx DroidXcon

    I used my D2 to log in to Blackboard which is a pretty common college site.

    My suggestion would be to go into Verizon store and try it on one of their display models before buying, especially if that's a requirement. Honestly though I can't say it would be as good as it would be on a pc. Screen real estate and all...

    I moved across the country and started new classes (three online) before I had net at home. D2 saved my life with blackboard, let me online first day of login to do first forum response. I still got dropped by one teacher, but he was just a pain. Otherwise, I've been happily surprised many times.

    Hope it works with Phoenix. You might also try emailing their tech support and ask if the site has any problems with webkit browsers, such as Android (if it works on iPhone, it should work on android).

    Hi, I'm a newbie with android, but I teach for UOPX. If you download the opera minin browser, you will be able to post to your classes just fine. I know that IT is working on an android app, but not sure how long it will take to finish it.

    disclaimer -- a lot of classes use external website/companies to provide learning activities (e.g., the math classes use MyMathLab). I don't know how many of these will work on the phone yet. But at least you can keep up with discussion on the phone.
