Default 8700f on Orange Uk

Please Login to Remove!

Hey,

I just got the 8700f with Orange in the UK and although I have got email and a WAP browser up and running, I don't know how to get the Blackberry browser set up. There is no icon on the phone, although it is present in the applications folder. I contacted Orange and they say it is a Blackberry issue and nothing to do with Orange. Also any idea how to get rid of the Enterprise activation icon if your not using it? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Hi - welcome to BBF.

To hide the Enterprise Activation feature, hold down the ALT key and press the trackwheel. A menu, with a hide option will appear.

That only works for the wap browser not the internet browser. I have downloaded Opera Mini browser and can't get it to connect to the internet. It gives me an error message "saying I don't have a working network connection".

Opera Mini needs an APN. Go to Advanced Options / TCP then complete the fields. Don't know Orange UK but Voda UK is:

APN: internet
Username: web
Password: web

BTW in my case registering the Host Routing Table made the Internet Browser icon visible, the WAP browser was already visible.

Thanks for that. It seems that Orange don't know the settings either as the phone is so new. They seem to have released a phone before their support info for it was in place. I tried the settings you gave me on the off chance but as expected they didn't work.
