You might want to give Opera Mini a try. Seems to work on a lot of sites the BB browser can't handle. Takes a little while to get used to the controls, though.

He's probably trying to access the new mobile banking site. Whenever I try and go to it on my 8830, it says "For security reasons, your device can't access Mobile Banking."

On Bank of America's site in order to use it on my BB I have to switch emulation to IE to get it to work. Otherwise, it says "for security reasons your phone can not use this service" or something like that. To switch just go: options > browser configuration > emulation mode

Then just change it to Microsoft IE, and it works for Bank of America.

I tried changing the emulation to IE and the bofa.mobi site but still get the security message.

Any other suggestions?
Thanks!

How did you get it to work? I have been trying emulation modes and other tricks with no luck. I am on AT&T 8300, but the question came from one of my users on a 8800.

Yes, we just got a large shipment of AT&T 8800's and I have had to update all of them to the software on the AT&T BB Download site in order for the browser to work with the Fidelity site...

I used the one marked AT&T and not the 8800tm branded update. Once this was done, I had to change the emulation to IE and authenticate through our firewall. (We are on BES). Once I saved this , I was able to authenticate to the Fidelity site....
Not sure if you have to do this with BOA as I don't goto this site.

Good luck....

Guys thank you so much, this had been driving me crazy every since I gave up my 8703e. I gotten so used to being able to check my BOA account from my Berry and could not figure out how to get it going on my 8830; changing the emualation mode did the trick.....thanks again
