Default Installing Opera Mini

Please Login to Remove!

After hours of tinkering and searching Google for on how to make the browser work without having a data plan, I've finally gotten it to work. Only problem is that it's painfully slow, and I heard that Opera Mini is faster, so I'm trying to install that now. I've run into a number of problems, however:

1) When i use the BB browser and go to mini.opera.com, i click download but it just sends me to a worthless page that tells me to go back to mini.opera.com and follow the instructions...
2) I tried using Desktop Manager to install Opera Mini but the app won't show up in my Applications menu.
3) I used the BB browser to download version 5 beta of Opera Mini, and this time it actually downloaded and installed, but again it doesn't show up in my Applications list.

What am I doing wrong?

i think its m.opera.com and as for the beta 5, I'm not sure why it wouldn't be there. but that is what i would recommend. its really fast. did you check the downloads folder?

Yeah, I just checked the Download folder and it was there. Is it just me or is that a rather misleading place to put it, considering I already INSTALLED it? Shouldn't it appear under Applications? Thanks for the help, though.

In BlackBerry 8900, all downloads (and installation of downloaded applications) are stored in the Downloads Folder. That is the default. You can, however, move these applications to any other folder or to homepage if you want to.
