Opera Browser and Wifi
Guys, Did some research on the forum and on Opera's site and couldnt find a confirmation of this so please bear with me...
Just got Opera Mini on my Bold and I've changed the settings to check the WIFI checkbox.
Now this browser doesnt't have the WIFI icon in the top right like the blackberry browser so I have no way of seeing which data path its taking.
Can anyone confirm that when the WIFI checkbox is checked...opera mini uses that preferred route?
Thanks and sorry for yet another wifi/data plan question
You can turn off your cellular data connection then try to surf the web with WiFi on. See if it works and let us know.

Well yes it does work with Cellular connections turned off so Opera can use Wifi.

Unfortunately, no all-you-can eat data plans north of the 49th parallel so it can get pretty expensive.
I guess I could install a data counter tool...but was just wondering if anyone had any insights before
I know on my curve with the wifi box checked it's surfing on wifi. Because when I leave the house and on EDGE if I forget to uncheck the wifi box it won't let me browse. So I'm pretty sure that you won't be using any data.
As long as you have the latest version of Opera Mini, it does support Wifi. There isn't a symbol for it however if you have the Wifi box checked, it will ONLY run on Wifi and so if you're not in a Hotspot Opera will report a 'tunnel failure'. And vice versa is you don't have the wifi box checked Opera WON'T use wifi at all. Its all or nothing for them.
