    Problem running Opera Mini...

    Advertisement



    Ever since my Pearl crashed last week, I have been having issues trying to download/run Opera Mini. Before it crashed, I was able to run Opera mini with no problems. Since the crash, I have tried several times to download and run Opera with no success. It downloads fine, but when I try to run it for the first time, it does its testing, then when it is on its last test it says "Unable to connect to internet. Contact your service provider or go to Operamini.com/help" This is BS though because I am able to serf the web using the BB browser NO PROBLEM.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Actually Opera Mini set up problems seem to be pretty common...and on this forum you should not fear asking questions! What problems are you running into madetosink?

    You won't be able to run it on your phone without a Blackberry Data Plan. You can run Opera only (no push email or OTA capability) with a non-Blackberry plan, but if your carrier does not have a default "pay as you go" option, you might be forced to get a BDP if you call to inquire about pay as you go.

    Strange, because it worked fine on the pearl without a plan. Maybe the 8800 is different.

    Probably not the phone so much as your account settings. Varies by carrier (and sometimes by the rep setting up your account). Sometimes they'll set up your account to allow access to data without realizing it. You don't technically have a plan, but your phone doesn't know any better.

    Question Opera and Google Maps issues on UK Pearl

    I am having some problems with OperaMini and GoogleMaps on my BB. Before I explain any more I using a Pearl on T-Mobile UK, have .103 OS installed and lots of free memory. Other apps are running fine.

    1) Opera Mini installs then goes through the tests then gets 'Network Failure' right at the end. Anyone know if its a settings issue like they claim on the website? I cant work this out.

    2) Again GoogleMaps downloads and installs OK but then NEtwork failure when I try to open the app. (Did I read that Google Maps is still not supported on British networks for the blackberry?)

    Anyone having success with these programs on their Pearl's and based in the UK?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated, I hate being stumped.

    I'm having this problem too. I'm on t-mobile's network and I have the data plan. My browser works fine, and I tried the advice give above. I would really like to run Opera though. Can anyone help ?
