Question Emulation Mode Which do you use?

Please Login to Remove!

Which emulation mode are you using on your BB? I'm useing MS Pocket IE. Seems to format forums and such better than Blackberry. What do you think?

"Blackberry" is necessary for downloading some apps, such as "TellMe." Took me a while to figure this one out.

Hi...

Jc was commenting on emulation question you asked and makes a point of using the BB Browser when trying to download an app. And, from what I have seen, different browsing sometimes needs different emulations. For example, on some sites, you need IE emulation to get through the security. (8800 and Fidelity Company Site) The BB Browser emulation will not cut it. Some apps, like Jc commented on, need the BB Brower emulation. So, it depends on what your trying to do with the browser...

I use BlackBerry. For most of my browsing I use Opera Mini, and the BlackBerry browser only when I need to download something.

I usually leave it on Microsoft IE. I have never heard of what John Clark posted. That's interesting.
