    The Bold's browser does not support flash, so the only way you can stream youtube videos is by using m.youtube.com or any site similar to www.tinytube.net

    There have been reports of people having problems with the Bold's 3G that is similar to what some iPhone users are experiencing. Although some people are experiencing no problems at all with their 3G coverage. So I say that if they network is fine then you should try exchanging the device for another Bold from your carrier if that is an option.

    For the browser I would suggest making sure that the browser is set to page view if you are visiting regular web pages and checking all of the options under Browser Configuration to see if that helps.

    Do you have the Bold right now or just testing it. Where are you from?

    I have actually found that using Column view is a much more readable set up for browsing...

    There's really no way to view flash on websites since the browser on BlackBerry's don't support it

    Flash would great to have. There is a browser out called skyfire that supports flash. Their website says they are planning on making it for BlackBerry. But no time table as of when. Hopefully with the release of the bold. And a touch berry before long they will make it. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
