just have the cingular browser on my 7100g, and was told by blackberry that there is no other browser i can get from them because i just have regular blackberry internet and am not on an enterprise server.
i have wml and html enabled but there's no html as far as i can see.
i see that handango has the minuet browser available for the 7100. has anyone tried this? couldn't find any mention of it in a search.
Assuming you are a BIS user (no BES), what you need is the IP gateway service. Whether you will get charged additionally for it depends on your service provider. Many service providers do not charge extra because you have already paid for it. Others, such as Cingular, may ask you to pay more at first, but I have heard many cases when users get it without extra charges after clarifying the meaning of the word "unlimited" with someone "knowledgeable" at Cingular.
I have not heard any cases when the use of 3rd party software resulted in extra charges. However, you may get extra charges if the 3rd party software uses a service that is not covered by your current plan.
Mark Rejhon's FAQ (link above) has some very good discussions on this topic.
i tried it out....and to tell you the truth i was better off walking the two miles to starbucks and using myt laptop than bothering with minuet.......the borwising is horrible and 95 percent of the times the pages either take forever to load that it times out or dont even load.......i would say dont even bother......my two cents
We are working tirelessly to improve Minuet, and your inputs are appreciated. You may want to try the new version (V1.1.2), if you haven't done so already. The display is a lot more "web-like", and the controls are easier to use. There is a discussion thread for Minuet V1.1 at Minuet Browser V1.1 Released.
Downloaded the latest version last night - first form login page I went to that works fine on the Blackberry browser doesn't even show the form fields, just the text and no way to enter the credentials.
I paid for Reqwireless when it first came out, and used it extensively.
But, more and more, I found the Blackberry browser the overall best for a pleasant internet experience.
I think Minuet and the others have a long way to go to get me to spend any money for something that I already get.
purchased minuet from handango, enable tcp on my bb and it worked but it was horrible, didnt display most pages and if it did it was very slow. got a refund from handango because it was so bad. recently started using bes off of exchangemymail.com , the speed and quality of the browser are worth the 20 bucks a month.
