Default I need some sprint help....

Please Login to Remove!

So I thought I was a 8800 expert…but I guess not…I have a lot of experience with TMO 7290,8700,8100 and now the 8800 well I sung the praise’s so much of this device a good friend of mine decided to update his hand set to a blackberry…but because of the club he works for professional sports coach...he is tied to sprint…well he has had the handset for 1 week now and I showed him how to use the calendar and set up the task’s and various other bits of coolness already made his life easier but when I showed him opera 4 he fell in love but I can not get it to load to his device he is on BIS so its not a BES issue and I check the TCP and APN settings and all is correct the program loads and shows up in his menu but when he goes to launch it the status bar at the bottom gets almost all the way to the edge…moving very slowly and then says he failed to connect to the internet…he has internet because I used the browser and showed him this forum…

Also I set the device to allow opera to access data….

Is there another setting to allow 3rd party apps to access the internet that I am not familiar with??

Is there something that I am missing??

Thanks

Zach--after installing OM, did you do a battery pull reboot? The TCP settings don't "take" until then.

no I did not...but I did check the TCP strings for sprint and they gave one that was internet.com but I also read that for the cdma the string wasn't mandatory...I will try tonight though.

Thanks!

I have the 8830 with Sprint and Opera loaded just fine for me...I didn't have to make any adjustments at all. Could it be a provisioning thing with Sprint?

Actually, I don't know the technical aspects of it either But whenever you activate a new phone, it has to be provisioned to talk with the network. I can tell you from past experiences that I have had to call back and have my new phone re-provisioned on more then one occasion because Vision (Sprints name for internet access basically) wasn't working correctly. The provisioning for a Blackberry is probably adds another layer of complication versus just a regular phone so I was guessing that provisioning could be an issue.

Provisioning--Having your carrier set it up in your account.

Does your friend have a BB Data Plan on sprint?

Unrelated, but why do so many try to use other web browsers? Isnt the BB browser the shiznits already? how many choices are there?

*I really dont know thats why I ask*

For me, Opera renders pages more like the desk top browser and will sometimes bring up pages the native browser won't for whatever reason. Opera also has a little magnifier box that you can move around to blow up sections of the page etc.
