Question Opera on BB Tour 9630

Please Login to Remove!

I have just purchased a Blackberry 9630 (Tour) Smart phone (3G, CDMA), v5.0.0.591 (Bundle 1059, Platform 4.2.0.284) and I am experiencing a problem trying to synchronize Bookmarks between my Opera Mini (Version 5.0) and Opera Desktop (Version 10.53). My Opera Mini installation appears to be mostly functional and I can load web pages.

I have enabled Opera Link and chosen to synchronize Bookmarks, Personal Bar, etc. On my BB’s start page, I cannot find “Synchronize Opera”. The start page only contains:
Header “Opera Mini”
WWW Address Box
Google Search Box
“Recommend to a friend”
9 Speed dial boxes.

When I press the BB (left soft) button, I get from left to right:
9-dot button (does nothing when pressed - what is it for?)
Left arrow
Right arrow
Reload (?)
Exit / Power Off.

Under the right arrow, is a small down arrow leading to:
Bookmarks
History
Saved pages
Downloads
Settings
Find in Page
Help.

At Opera Link - Getting started, under the heading “Getting started on your mobile phone”, it says to click [the missing] “Synchronize Opera” on the start page. Is my start page defective or is Opera Mini not designed for the Tour? I would appreciate any suggestions.

I have not been able to synch my bookmarks with 5.0. Unlike 4.2

Although I don't have your same OS, I have the opera mini 5.0 and it did successfully synchronize. I had made an account with 4.2 and never used a PC version of Opera. I believe your install to your Tour is fine and you may need to let it settle in a couple days. I noticed unresponsive right after I installed it and waited a while (overnight) and then I was able to get all my bookmarks from the old version.
