    What's getmorespeed.voicestream.com:8080? I've never heard of it. Just faster than wap.voicestream.com? Do I just make the change in the TCP pannnel?

    Actually, maybe someone can answer this. When I got the phone there was no APN set in the TCP pannel. My BB browser still worked. How is that possible? Why would changing the APN affect the bb browser then? I guess I've never really understood why some apps need APN.

    Thanks, cheers!

    Does my addition of wap.voicestream.com to the APN make the blackberry browser slower? Or, are you just saying that the opera browser will not be as fast as the bb browser?

    Do NOT use "getmorespeed," since it won't allow you to use any 3rd party internet software.

    Re: BEST browser ever.

    So, I have downloaded Opera Mini and so far I like it better than the default browser. I have a question though, is there a way to set Opera up that it does NOT use the BB default browser to download files? Because it uses the default browser to dl, I can not get files that are on certain websits that the default browser cant bring up (I'm guessing because of security settings on the website).

    There's no way to change the default browser.

    This is somewhat true. Some stuff will work, ie. BB Yahoo Messenger. . . but some will not, ie. BBWeather, OperaMini. I had the same problem on my MDA. But, if you're like me and don't install hardly any 3rd party software, it'll work just fine and you should see a nice little performance increase when browsing with the default browser.

    Opera mini 3.0 is the best browser by far. Its easier to read on some sites like pinstack and you can also post stuff and its pretty easy to use. I would recommend this and to you have it already have fun with it.

    Ok.. But does opera not have any download ability to it or something? Everytime I try and download something in the Opera browser, it takes me to the blackberry browser to download whatever I am trying to download. Does that make sense?
