    Advertisement



    Since purchasing my pearl I have noticed that there are a few websites that I go to fairly often that I can not get into on this phone. Its not really a big deal but I would like to be able to access the entire web. Can any of you tell me of your experience with opera good or bad, and whether or not you think it will fix my problem?

    So far I prefer the BB browser. 1) because in opera you can only use the trackball to scroll. I prefer the regular bb shortcut keys for scrolling a line, a page or to the bottom. 2) Common destinations like ESPN scores are much easier to find on BB (if you're not denied access because it's too crowded..)

    But the Opera program is small and elegant and well worth having.

    I don't think it could hurt to download Opera. The only reason I keep it loaded is because it allows me to view many of the pages the built-in browser can not access.

    bb browser doesn't like several .php based sites I visit so I use opera mini. also is very with crappy coded sites i.e myspace. loads very quick. I also like it's ability to allow size selection of saved pictures.

    I had problems with it on my last 3 BlackBerrys (7100T and 2 7105T's) but this time it's working wonderfully on my Pearl. I am able to access my MySpace page and reply to messages on time LOL (and friend requests).

    Its a nice browser. It worked better on my Sony w810i. But its worth it. You can access a lot of sites with it. You can check your banking, credit cards , and your MYSPACE!

    Why not? Get it. I don't use it very much, but I can and I like that I am able to for sites that the BB browser seems to reject. ;-)

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    The link is mini.opera.com.
    I think its a great browser I can access my bank accounts, credit card statements, and download pics of web sites. Its good to have.

    Ok so I took the leap and downloaded it. OMG it works great. I'm able to view pages on Ebay easily as well as many other sites that I was not able to view correctly (or even at all in some instances). I HIGHLY recommend this browser to anyone that has a pearl! BTW thanks for the help stackers!!

    You can scroll down one page by pressing... '8' I believe within Opera mini. I really wish they would incorporate the page preview function that the BB Browser has. I do find that the Opera Mini Browser does a better job of formatting pages for viewing with the Pearl. FWIW.

    Thanks for trying, but the 8 doesn't work on mine. I like opera anyway. I think it's almost a must to have 2 browsers...

    I use it all the time and I love it. It does suck that you can't scroll with the keypad, also the period shortcut is gone (hitting space after you get your word). But overall I like it
