| | WWW delays on 8700C
Please Login to Remove!
I have followed this 8700 forum very closely since the device was released. My 8700C finally arrived the other day, and I was able to retire my beloved 7290. So far, I love the device. Knock on wood - I have not had any of the negative dust issues, reboots, or similar issues.
The one thing that I am noticing (not sure if it is an actual problem, or just the way it is) is that there is a noticable and pretty regular delay when I try to access web sites. I do have the three browsers (BB, Cingular, and Internet Browser). I tend to use the Internet Browser and have set that as my default and the object of my front convenience key.
When I try to access most web sites, the browser shows a status of "requesting...." for what I think is too long of a time. Once the "Requesting ...." goes a way, and it says "Loading..." - then the EDGE speed seems to kick in well. At that point the pages load pretty fast, and I am pleased with that part of the performance. But, the delay waiting for what I assume is the initial connection to the web site is obnoxiuos.
I have tried setting the emulation mode to IE and Pocket IE. I am on a corporate BES server, but I have no information on release levels and settings for that box. I work for a VERY large company, and I would not be able to get access to that data. So, I do not know if the delay is at the BES, a setting on my 8700C, or if it is the way it is. I have only tried the web browsing from my home, and I typically get 2 or 3 bars for the EDGE strength, so am also not sure if it is simply signal strength.
Has anyone else seen this, or have any suggestions for improving my browsing performance?
Thank you for your help.
