Default Opera Mini not connecting on 8700 w/ Cingular

Please Login to Remove!

Newbie...Treo oldie.

I'm on cingular w/ Edge. I downloaded Opera for BB and tried to run it. It says: You do not have a working network connection.

What is it looking for? Not sure where to go from here. The Cingular and Blackberry browsers work fine.

I had problems with it too. It froze my BB for at least 5 minutes with the hourglass just spinning before the search page comes up. I deleted it without even attempting a search for fear that I'd be stuck in an endless cycle. All of this on a 7105t.

I tried the Opera Mini and deleted it the same day! Its pretty much junk as the BB browser blows it away!

Never worked for me, I don't really like opera much anyway.

Works for me on my 8700c. Just have to make sure that I have logged into my BES using the BB browser first. Don't see much advantage to it however.

What do you mean log into your BES?
Currently I can do everything - tether to my laptop, run Google Maps, 411 and BBWeather. The only app that currently complain is Opera.
I am curious to compare compatibility with some web sites, etc. before I toss it out.
Thanks for any help.

Opera browser is finnicky at best, if you search through the forums here there are plenty of people that use it and claim it works and some go as far as saying faster, others claim it is slower than the BB browser, while others still cannot get it to work at all. For me personally it was slow, and cumbersome to use and I unistalled soon after I got it.

I got it to work by imputing APN/user/pass under TCP settings. It can be slow and it can be fast. As strange as it sounds, it seems to be faster in the evenings for me. I have to hit enter twice on links because if I hit enter once, the page says "processing..." for a long time. I use it regularly because I love the page rendering, and I can access secure sites (such as paypal) that I cant access with the BB browser.

I need a "disable mds proxy" option to use it, otherwise my corp security policy won't route it. :(
