    Opera mini problems

    Advertisement



    I am a new member and relatively new to Blackberry. I have searched pinstack and there seems to be varying opinions about opera mini. Some of you achieve successful installation, and some have problems. I fall into the latter group. I have tried several times to install and use opera (even the new beta version). It seems to intsall but when clicking on the icon I am told "uabale to connect to the internet.
    I have spend what seems like hours with my provider (vodafone UK), and they cannot resolve it.
    I have set the APN to their recommended ones, and all else seems to be ok.
    This is the only dark spot in an otherwise superb blackberry experience.
    Anyone help?

    Re: Opera mini problems

    Sorry to hear you are having issues. Most of the Posts of this type I have seen are from Overseas. Not sure what they are doing with their APNs over there, the Direct APN to RIM is blackberry.net I have had some luck putting that as the APN, and then switching back to the providers If that fails. But I am in the USA so not sure if that will help you or not.

    Re: Opera mini problems

    Tnx very much for the reply.
    I'll try the APN you suggest.
    Strange how some 8310 users get it up and running with no probs!

    Thumbs down Re: Opera mini problems

    Tried setting apn to blackberry.net with no password. Still no joy.
    I have tried changing connection settings variously tried BIS, TCP and WAP...
    Connection works only on WAP
    Frustrated!!! I can access the web perfectly with the generic BB browser... suppose I'll have to be content with that!

    Re: Opera mini problems

    I have Opera Mini on my Curve as we speak. I check my myspace every day on it. I may be of assistance.

    1)Go to opera mini dot com through the BB browser
    2)download the application to your BB
    3)Goto options > Advanced Options> TCP
    4)Here you will need your provider specific APN (Call them they should be able to provide you with it). "not just a random Blackberry host name you guessed off the top of your head either" lol.
    The next step will not work for anything other than a Cincinnati Bell User. This is for Example purposes only.
    5)For example (wap.gocbw.com) User ID: cbw Password: Blank - (Nothing Goes Here)
    6)Save changes back out to the main screen and launch the opera mini icon
    7)Doe the setup process you should have to accept user license agreement and stuff, but then WALLA! your done!

    Let me know if this is of any help guys.

    The company default is uasally a wap. prefix, in the case of TMO it is wap.voicestream.com User name is left blank as is the Password. So the provider is not giving you guys full access to the net with the APNs they are giving you it seems. Possibley they want more money for that. could be an Overseas restriction. Like export of certain programs or devices ?!?!?!

    Re: Opera mini problems

    Hey there, why can't I actually find any linkage to download this app OTA?
    I get to the site, find all this linkage to unnecessary things, then, i see at the very bottom the "mini opera phone" text in the dialogue box, press enter, but it's only refeshing the same page (

    If you go here on a PC, http://www.operamini.com/download/sms/ you can send the link to the phone directly.
