Default Browsing with AT&T

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB pearl 8100 with an AT&T sim card. My browser is extremely limited. Is there a way to use a third party browser with full capabilities?

ditto to what sman said: the browser on the Pearl when it has a "blue" SIM in it will only be the mMode browser. But opera mini works great and can view a majority of sites out there like the BB browser would if you had a cingular SIM in the Pearl.

Default opera mini

I downloaded opera mini and it won't connect to the internet. Do I have to change any settings on my phone and if so, how do I do that? I am not the greatest at this kind of thing.

go into setting>options>advanced options>tcp....then put proxy in the APN spot and leave username and password blank then you'll be set.
