I have installed the WAP link OTA, via E-Mail and using DM. For some reason this is the only link that will not work. 35 other shortcuts work with no problem. I've tried a battery pull and looked for answers on this sight. Error message is as follows, "The protocal specified is not supported by the hand held please try a different url." Is this a problem with the link or is my Bold 9700 that has no other problems that I'm aware of the fault?

.362 Bold on BES -- Protocol not supported.
.230 Tour on BIS -- Protocol not supported.

Any ideas?

I am getting the same error message with the wap shortcut on BES since upgrading to 5.0.0.411 five days ago. Worked fine for almost a year and a half while using OS 4.6.
Should have come here first when I first encountered this issue and avoided at least half a dozen deletes and OTA reloads.
I am surprised no moderator has not picked up on this and responded specifically to your post almost 2 weeks ago or put a note at the top of this thread about problems with the WAP shortcut and certain OS 5.0s and avoided a lot of user frustration. After all it is a shortcut to BlackBerryForums.com. It goes to the very heart or this Forum.

Also getting the same error for BBFAQ on my Bold 9000 with OS 5.0.0.411 on BES
The BBForums shortcut is working though.
Two of the three shortcuts to "your favourite forum" are not working. Is no-one moderating this thread?

jimfraser, thanks for the kind words and encouragement.
We'll get it sorted out.

The shortcuts were made for OS 4.5 and prior devices. We will have them re-developed for a wider range of OS levels and devices.

JSanders, thanks for getting back. I would not be bugging you if they were not such great aps. They worked just fine for me in 4.6. 3G (the network is loaded up with iphone users taking up bandwidth) or not and a 1 gig data plan, I still prefer to use wap as it is faster. In the meantime I will use the browser short cut which still works fine.
Most of the other issues I was having with 5.0.0.411, have been worked through, so I am actually beginning to like 5.0. The big plus for me with 5.0 is having the corp (BES) e-mail in a separate folder, so I can ignor the personal stuff if I want to.
Thanks again. Keep up the good work.

Thanks to you John Clark (and JSanders) for the updates. (Sorry I have been a pest, but I really missed them since upgrading my OS to 5.0.) These have been great shortcuts to the only site I need to look at for BB information.

A free gift to you!

Note: (02/02/2010) These shortcuts have now been updated to support OS 4.7 and 5.0. Enjoy!!

BlackBerryForums has the BEST members around and the applications below were designed just with you in mind! We hope you will enjoy using these new homescreen application shortcuts directly from your trusty BlackBerry... three applications in all.

One for the wap.BlackBerryForums.com site, another to the regular BlackBerryforums.com site and another directly to the FAQ site! And, each of the apps are under 10kb in size, so small they would never crowd your BB device memory (two of the apps are actually under 5 KB).

Check it out, and ENJOY!

This download is OK for all OS 4.3, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 and 5.0 models!

Special thanks to BBF members John Clark and simon-hain for their application development, testing and patience in designing and troubleshooting these. Also to several of the moderators of BBF for testing and feedback on these applications before release-especially MrKyoo. I'll give my personal business a shameless plug for designing the icons... Master Image.

**DISCLAIMER CRAP: All the apps have been tested and retested. Do not load the OS4.2+ apps to a device running OS 4.1 and lesser. BlackBerryForums will not be responsble for devices not working as a result of installation of any of the above applications.

Please do not distribute except via links from this www.blackberryforums.com site.

is the bbnews link broken,as of today 3/23/10 it no longer works,being worked on??? thanks
