Default Internet Speed

Please Login to Remove!

Being a new BB user I do not know what speed to expect out of my internet browser. If I access the internet, say ebay for instance, the page will take 2-3 mins to load, and when I try to log on to MY EBAY, the BB stalls and I just get a spinning hourglass until I remove the battery. Are there tricks to speed up the browser and make it more reliable. Or is there a problem with my handheld.

Verizon 7250.


Thanks.

You could try the update to EVDO--providing you live/work in an EVDO coverage area.

There have been some issues with this upgrade...

Are you using a mobile-optimized website for ebay? (I believe one exists?).

eBay loads in about 10 seconds on my 7250 (Verizon thru Earthlink) using http://wap.ebay.com
