When I try to access the web via the hotsopt, I get the logon page, when I start to put my e-mail and password into the logon fields the browser attempts to connect before I have entered all the info.

I have tried this on the native browser and I have also tried it using Mini Opera.

I have cleared the cashe and the history, but it still wont connect.

Anyone got any ideas please?
One major thing I see is the your OS is .246. That OS is one of the worst put on the torch, and I believe that OS is what is giving you these issues. I would upgrade to a newer OS first.
See the link below, for the download and simple installation instructions.

Do a backup of your device first, using Desktop Manager > Backup. Close Desktop Manager upon completion.

Since this upgrade is from your provider, 02 UK, your DM should see that you have an upgrade available, I would upgrade to the newest (.534 I think was the OS listed). Then try the hot spots again.

You do have a BlackBerry data plan, don't you? Cuz you have to have a data plan to get your torch working correctly.
