Default questions from a Curve newbie. ;)

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought the Curve 8310 in Titanium and I'm having some problems with the Opera Mini 4.0 browser. They're probably simple but I just switched over from the Pearl and I'm having a bit of a hard time adjusting.

Is there a way to scroll quickly on the BB's default browser? On the Pearl, you could press 7 to get to the bottom of the page, for example, or 9 if you want to scroll quickly instead of line by line.

Also, is there something wrong with my Opera if it won't let me view someone's MySpace if I just type in their URL? For some reason the site's homepage and my own page is fine because I can enter the URL and it'll take me to the page. However, if for some reason I want to visit an artist's page or my friend's page, it just takes me to an "error" message.

Thanks in advance!

On the BlackBerry Browser I believe you can scroll down by pressing the Space bar. To scroll up you can hold down ALT (or the NUM key??) and press the Space bar.

What Jeremy says is true for the 8700 and older qwerty devices, so probably true for new models too. And see for more tips.
