Default HTTP ERROR 403 Forbidden

Please Login to Remove!

I keep getting this error when trying to download the opera mini browser. I had this issue before and called blackberry support he said it was because I did not have a data plan. We corrected that I now have unlimited data. He also had me go to advanced/browser and switch my default browser to internet. I have been pretty successful getting anywhere on the web until now. I changed some settings after browsing to the page, allowed java script etc, and once was able to get past that to the download button but download failed. On attempt # 2 I got the same error HTTP Error 403 Forbidden. HELP!

What link are you using to download the Opera browser? I go to Opera browser: Home page and it works fine from my 8320.

WOW, why that worked I have no idea. It brought me to the same page I was initially trying to download from, but I could not install the 4.1 with certificates. I read another forum where someone said try navigating to the other link if this one fails which I did, and clicked on the opera 4.1 without certificates and was still getting the 403 error. Bur for whatever reason starting from your link above, those steps worked just fine. Once again the people on this forum have come through. Thanks you guys are all awesome!

Ok, still have a problem.... I have installed but cannot connect. It says:

Failed to connect to the internet.

Go to
opera.mini.com/help?version=4.1 with your desktop browser or contact your service provider for internet settings.

Anyone know off hand what these settings would be? I go through Telus.
