Default Opera Mini : trouble downloading

Please Login to Remove!

I keep going around in circles trying to download Opera mini. Anyone managed the OTA link recently either from mini.opera.com or the sms they send? When I click on the "download" link I just end up back in another page telling me how to download it!

Thanks for any pointers.

Some intern at Opera who got landed with the "tidy the web" project will be getting his arse kicked I daresay

Opera Mini - Download

See the reference to mini.opera.com.

Had they made that a link you could copy the url easier and send to the phone.

I've been around in circles for too long now -time to find an alternative

I posted this recently in a different thread, but it may still apply:

I have the best success with the Opera Mini OTA if I have the native Browser's Emulation or Identification set to "Blackberry". When it's on IE, the OTA installer doesn't seem to auto-detect properly.

Had already checked that.

How hard can it be for them just to provide a simple OTA link? I am trying BOLT now - again better than the built in BB browser.

It is an OTA link and works well for 99.% of those who try to use it. Yours is the first case I read of where it doesn't work with your browser emulation set to BlackBerry. Something strange is going on with your device.

I dont think it's my my device ( I cant find the link on a normal browser either) It just goes around in circles. A quick google shows me a few others are having the same problem. At least one other in this thread too. I also had them text me the tlink which then took me to the same page. Which reference mini.opera.com again.

Did you download it in the past days?

And I had downloaded it before ( a couple of months ago).

I just tried it. Don't know if it will help you but here is the link I ended up at:
http://mini.opera.com/mini.jad?rnd=1...el=4&cert=none

It's the unsigned English version.
