    Hi all,

    I'm a new user to this site and to Blackberry phones. Really pleased with the 8100. Really COOL phone. Only just getting used to it so I'm sure I'll have some questions for all you long term users out there.
    Cheers for now.

    Cheers Rcbjr & ljbyar & cp6169
    I do have a question. I'm not very impressed with the T-Mobile browser that is installed. I've downloaded the latest Mini Opera browser but not loaded it yet. I'm led to believe that this is one of the best or would the OEM BB browser be better? Any advice or tips?
    Cheers.

    mercman, I think Opera versus the built-in browser comes down to personal preference. The Opera browser does display some pages the built-in one doesn't and some like the display better. I keep both loaded on my BB and use both when needed.

    Also, in order to get Opera to work, you're going to have to input your APN settings: Not sure which one works for you, but here are both:

    T-Mobile (UK) 1
    Gateway IP: 149.254.1.10
    Port: 9201
    APN: general.t-mobile.uk

    T-Mobile (UK) 2

    Gateway IP: 140.254.1.0
    Port: 9201
    APN: blackberry.net

    Thanks ljbyar, Is it possible to download the BB built-in one? Sorry if that seems a stupid question but this is all very new to me!

    No such thing as a stupid question here. Remember, we all were asking us these questions at one time.

    If you have the T-Mobile browser, that is the built-in one. It would have come with your service books when you signed up for the data plan service.
