Most cell phones are now coming equipped with Internet capabilities. Having an Internet-capable phone allows you to browse the Web, download applications and stay up to date on all of your social networking sites. Similar to computers, every time you surf the Web, a small piece of information is stored to your phone. This bit of information is known as a "cookie." Viewing the cookies stored on your phone will allow you to revisit a Web page that you viewed previously.
