PART 2

 


The standard BlackBerry browser will NOT work without the £2.50 BlackBerry addon, so an alternative browser is used (Opera Mini).


Now, simply open BlackBerry App World and download the app named Opera Mini. 



If your BlackBerry App World gives you an error and you're unable to connect via WiFi, you'll need to copy Opera Mini manually as follows:


 

To get a copy of Opera Mini to your PC for transferring to the Blackberry via the Blackberry Desktop Manager software...

 

Go to http://www.opera.com/mobile/download/blackberry/ for the Opera software

Go to https://rapidshare.com/files/1541462252/470_b059_english_nomediamanager.exe for the Desktop Manager software

 

Connect your Blackberry to your computer with a USB data cable then use Blackberry Desktop Manager and the application loader and browse to the folder that contains the alx and cod files that Blackberry Desktop Manager needs to install to the handset.



Your internet should now work via Opera Mini.
