View Full Version : Blackberry and shout

12-03-2008, 05:37 PM
Ok folks... here's what I have come up with...

If you download Opera Mini 4.x (http://www.operamini.com/) and install it on your BB, you can use the chat box... a few notes though.

1: Opera Mini SUCKS with transparent menu themes (like on the Storm), rendering it damn near unusable. If Terry can verify that on the Storm, I would appreciate it, as all i can do is apply the theme to my 8130.

2: Disabling the "mobile" profile so you can use the chat box via Opera has made the rest of the site's use through Opera difficult. So for forum use, use the BB browser.

3: Auto refresh of the chat does not work.

Let me know if you have any problems.

Also, you need to have your BB browser set to blackberry emulation mode, not IE or Netscape, or the OTA download of Opera will not work.

more notes when DL'n Opera... if you get an error on the OTA download, click the link that says "If theis version fails to install or you would like a previous version, please click here" and choose the "Download Opera Mini! (English (USA), No Signature)" link.

It's only letting me DL v.4.0

Another note:

For downloading, switch to WAP emulation.

I can see the chat. I have to scroll side to side to view it all and I made the browser font small. The odd thing is that it show like 30 posts, instead of the usual 6 or so.

the scroll on the chat screen does not show up, so you see the 30 post cut off per page... <_< This is a work in progress.

I need one of you nerds to show me how to set it up.

I got it to work for the "full" version of the site, but it was slow. I prefer the skinny site, and can live without the shoutbox on my BB
