    Advertisement



    I am trying to log into websites on my curve's blackberry browser. Things like my bank and other financial sites. It says that my browser isn't supported or that it is unsecure and won't allow me to log in. is anyone having this problem or does anyone know what I need to do to fix it. Thank You!

    Opera Mini supports secure browsing from your BlackBerry, maybe you'll have better luck using it.

    mini.opera.com

    Thank you very much, I will give Opera Mini a shot.

    Try going to Options/Security Options/TLS and set Allow HTTPS Redirections to Yes.

    You may also try setting your browser to emulate microsoft ie or something else (as some sites don't recognize the BB emulation).

    How can I do this? I installed Opera Mini and it still says my browser isn't supported at my bank's site, so maybe emulating IE will work. Thank you.

    if you have tried the above suggestions and it still isn't working, there's a good chance it may be on your bank's side of things. the first thing most secured mobile bank sites look for is your handheld's signature as to what make/model it is as the initial check before it goes on to look for encryption support. if the make/model is not on the supported list, you will get a rejection message. when the 8320 first came out, I was unable to sign onto BoA as it did not recognize my device. A few weeks later it began working. They most likely had to update their site to recognize the newer model. I'd say just go to your bank's website and try putting "mobile" into the search field to look for some information on it, or just call the 800 number. blackberry is one of the most recognized and supported brands for mobile access so i'm sure someone on their side will have some info to give you on supported models.

    I get asked a lot to solve this problem on my friends BBs and the way I get it to work is like squeakr said. Get on your Internet browser (not the WAP) and go to options + browser config + emulation mode and make sure Microsoft IE is the one selected. Good luck!

    That worked like a charm, thanks so much. Are there any other adverse effects to having the browser emulate IE? Thanks again.

    I have been having the same problem. I changed my emulation mode, I changed the https to allow redirect, and I downloaded Opera Mini, with which I am having the same problems. It is very frustrating.

    Never mind. I got it to work. I changed all I mentioned before plus I changed encryption from weak to strong only. I power-cycled it, went back to the site with the BB browser, and it worked!
