    Re: another noob question

    Hi MAwith2Ts,

    Opera is another form of an internet browser. It's like The Blackberry browser and used to access the internet. It does many of the same things as others do but also is a bit different in how it handles certain pages.

    I don't use it so maybe another stacker who does can give you additional information about that part.

    Re: another noob question

    Opera Mini is a third party Browser for smart phones. It has a different format than the native BB internet browser, and will allow you to view the few sites that don't load correctly on the BB Browser.

    Hope this helps

    Re: another noob question

    Opera is designed to minimise data useage on phones,something which whilst not necessarily an issue on unlimited data plans also means that in theory anyways you should get a better browser.The site goes through a server which removes the excess junk and redrafts the page for optimized viewing on a small device.As above poster says it will also allow more sites to be viewed correctly or indeed at all.Best of all its free

    Hope this helps

    Re: another noob question

    I'm a new BB user, and just bought the pearl about a week ago. I downloaded opera to try it out, but I am unable to get it to connect to the internet. I am able to access the internet via the blackberry browser, but not on opera...any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Is there any specific error message you are getting?

    Make sure you have the correct TCP settings.

    Options>Advanced Options>TCP
    and put the correct settings for your carrier which you can find here:

    it says "failed to connect to the internet...go to [opera website] with your desktop browser or contact your service provider for internet settings"

    The TCP settings are correct. I have cingular with unlimited data usage, if that makes a difference.

    dabears, Welcome to PinStack.

    Remember that the TCP settings are Case Sensitive. Check them to make sure you have them to the correct Case also.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.
