| | Re: Accessing browser-based AOL mail with older BB
Well, AOL pulled the plug yesterday (May 4) on WAP-based mobile browser mail access, rather than April 27 as mentioned in their original notice. Trying to access AOL mail via the built-in browser on my Bold 9780 results in a 404 not found error, while doing so from the Opera Mini 8 browser brings up a page saying that WAP-based webmail is no longer supported. The list of supported mobile OS includes the following: iOS 5 or later, Android 4.1 or later, BlackBerry 10, WebOS and Nexus 7.
It looks like I'm going to have to ditch my trusty old BlackBerry, bite the bullet and buy a cheap used Android phone if I want an inexpensive solution to accessing AOL mail from my phone using WiFi. I'm none too pleased, but there's no point trying to fight the powers that be.
