  1. Note: You can use Opera Mini EVEN IF you don't have a Service Book for the built-in browser. I have a second BlackBerry I use for travelling (keeping one on "home" service and one on "local"). Of course without a BIS plan many functions will not show up (Blackberry Maps, for example) but you can use Opera Mini to download other non-service-book applications such as Google Maps instead.

    It's worth considering in case of an emergency (and most Vodafone international locations supply at least GPRS data with their SIM's at the airport….)


  2. No no, u can download stuff via Opera, but when u download Opera app from blackberry browser. When u install Opera Mini via PC then is without JSR75.

  3. Wait, can someone confirm this? Will I really not be able to download w/in the browser? If that’s the case, I don’t plan on upgrading.

  4. Its true. When i install Opera via PC, i was’nt able to download stuff on my phone. But when download Opera via Blackberry browser, im able to save pages, download mp3s etc. (My BB OS is 4.5).

  5. What the hell?! With 4.2 you can't download within the Opera browser?! And you can't downgrade to 4.1?! Thanks a lot, Opera.

  6. I tried the beta and discovered that I could no longer paste urls into the address "bar". Is that still the case in the release version, or did they fix that?

  7. All of a sudden when I pressed the menu button in 4.1 menu would flash on and off. Wiped it and installed 4.2. Same thing. Can’t use menu on this buggy program any more?

  8. @ disciples

    Its not the Opera, just try change the theme u use. I was have this same problem (with flashing menu) with one of my themes, when i change for other theme, issue resolvd.

  9. argh. it's got the install status screen interfering with the firewall etc prompts so how can i get around that?
