Yes I just got off the phone with a really cool data support guy. As he put it the problem stems with Bell.
You see, unlike other providers (example Rogers) Bell once they receive the phones from Blackberry set provisions up in terms of connecting to the network. By doing this they claims it saves prople from burning out phones by using software not compatiable with their phone and keeps the network secure.
Having said that what they fail to tell you when joining or signing up is that this also stops you from using programs like opera mini which I have been dying to use as eBay and Ticketmaster and other site (becoming very common) use heavy scripting / Java which out default WEP and Internet Browsers simply can not handle.
So they do give us an update higher then 4.1 on the blackberry and they dont let us use our on software.
Do you feel a little controlled?
