I have the stock web browser but I don't like the way it shows pages in any of it's formats. Is there an aftermarket browser that formats the page width to the screen and still renders the page to look like it does on a computer? Basically desktop view that doesn't require one to scroll left or right? Any help is appreciated!

Opera Mini's about as close as you'll get but a small 320x240 screen will never be formatted exactly like your desktop.

Which version? If I go there is say it doesn't recognize the phone. Should you get the high memory or the low memory version?

Note to North-American users

Opera Mini is available to all Sprint and Cingular customers. Availability for T-Mobile customers is dependent on the subscription plan. BREW-enabled phones, including Verizon, are currently not supported.

A specific setting is required to enable Opera Mini to access the Internet on a T-Mobile Blackberry:

From your Blackberry homescreen, go to Options, then Advanced Options, then TCP. Under APN, enter "wap.voicestream.com". Leave Username and Password blank.

I have to say I'm extremely underwhelmed by Opera Mini. Small fonts disappear (literally) and medium fonts are too big for enough info. I think overall the formatting is worse than the blackberry browser.

Sorry but IE on a WM5 smartphone beats this thing up and takes it's lunch money. Actually Opera Mobile (not mini) on a Nokia E61 was the single best mobile browser I have ever seen. Opera on other platforms just isn't nearly as good.
