Default 8120 Opera MINI help!!

Please Login to Remove!

I have the 8120 and I'm trying to install opera mini. It starts to install and then says it fails to connect to the internet. Can anyone help? Also will I be charged by T-mobile for not using the default browser? Thanks

You need to enter T Mobiles APN settings onto your BB.

Go to options > advanced options > TCP

APN = wap.voicestream.com

Username & password are left blank.

These settings are for T mobile USA.

curious, does this mean when i roam internationally that i need to change the APN? or can it access t-mobile's APN over another carrier?

because i remember that when i was in europe i never had to change my APN when going to other countries (even to Singapore and USA), the GPRS just worked.

this doesnt work for me, maybe because im roaming on SunCom.. anyone got any suggestions?

//EDIT: after talking to CS they told me that after adding the APN you need

Go To: Options > Advanced Options > Host Routing Table
-and register to any of the networks there! and you will be good to go!!

I tried installing opera mini 4 on my 8120, and I keep getting the same problem. 'Failed to connect to internet' but there's nothing wrong with my internet. I can go on it with the default browser. And I enter the correct apn address.
Does anyone else has this problem???

Default "Content blocked by operator"

This is a new error for me... trying to install again after reading of previous success. I am now getting an error that says Content blocked by operator.
