Default What version of opera mini for the 8800?

Please Login to Remove!

What version should I download? I'm trying to do the 8700c OTA, but it isn't letting me download. What phone are you guys picking?

Thanks.

Here's the easy way, I used it and it works perfectly. I use Opera Mini ver 3.0 on all my BBs.

From your PC go to http://www.operamini.com/download/sms/

Enter your BBs phone number and they will send you a text message that includes the application. Just open that and it will load the brower onto your BB. Then you set it up by following the promts, it's really easy.

Cheers...

I downloaded OTA from www.operamini.com and selected the high memory version. Works great on my 8800. I didn't do the SMS way, but that works as well. I had two options, low or high memory by going to operamini.com.

Thanks for the replies. I was able to download to my desktop and install it that way. I tried the SMS way, and never received the message.

I have tried that in the past and sometimes I never received the sms either. I find the OTA is the easiest.

Glad to hear you got it done.

The funny part is we all seem to have different experiences when it comes to accessing and downloading v 3.0

I tried every method over a 2 day period and finally the text message came........

As anyone else having issues with setting the font size to small in opera mini on the 8800? When I do I receive a gang of blank characters.

When I selected small, not a single letter showed up. Luckily I was able to remember where everything was and went back to Medium.
