Someone may have said this before but if you are looking for a business apps phone the e61i with the opera mobile browser [you have to buy it], is a great phone - I find that for e-mails and browsing its great and I find it better actually than a touch screen.

Not sure why you need to buy it? I'm using the Opera Mini on my E61i. But then, can't recall where I downloaded Opera from .

The only issue with browsing on the E61i, IMO, is the lack of a scroll control. Clicking down/up to navigate can be painful on the fingers when browsing for 30mins-1hr at a stretch.

I have a Blackberry Pearl bought officially from Hutch. I now want to use my Airtel on the same phone but it's locked by Vodafone. I called their BB helpline for the unlock code but they said they don't have any unlock code (Amazes me that they think a Blackberry customer will be so dumb!) and that I should give the phone to another vodafone customer. Can anyone help me unlock the Pearl?

Interesting that even after the transition from Hutch to Vodafone the company and the attitude of it's customer care people hasn't changed.

I think [not sure though] that the Opera mobile is better than the mini and it has extremely useful keyboard shortcuts including scrolling. Costs $24.

Nope not yet - you know what the problem was? Ridiculous - all Hutch (err, Vodaphone) phones in the complex where her Office is located are not being able to receive incoming calls! And the buggers (as in Vodaphone customer care) have NO CLUE for the past almost one week of what the problem is.

The minute she's out of her office complex, the phone works fine! But anyways, time to replace it with a "fresh" one so........

Thanks for the tip anyways

Dunno about the old Mini, but the Opera Mini4 Beta3 ( http://www.operamini.com/beta/ ) has keyboard shortcuts for page up, page down, new URL etc etc. It does not do tabbed pages though (right now that seems to be the only advantage the paid version has).

I've been trying the Beta4 for a while now, and its hard to believe it is a free app. Lots and lots of features, including image resolution control, RSS aggregator/reader, zoom control, landscape mode, bookmark synchronization with the new Opera 9.5 beta (for desktop) etc etc.

What **** luck - just paid $24 for the mobile version. Should have tried the mini beta.

OTOH I think it does not have password manager which is a must for me.

Does any browser allow you to cut/paste from a web page?

Hey, don't worry! You bought a final version of a definitely better built/coded SW while the SW I mentioned is still in beta. The Mini is basically the test-bed for its big brother Opera Mobile. The Mini is just their way of suckering a lot of guys to try a SW and get feedback, all for free. [But then the Mini is so good, and its free, so its is totally win-win between the user and Opera.] Then all that feedback goes into improving their bread-and-butter Opera Mobile.

I'd bought Opera Mobile for my PPC too, 'cause Mini can't hold a candle to the Wi-Mo version of Opera Mobile. OM is hands down the best browser for Wi-Mo, IMHO.

And like you said, Opera Mobile does have a few features not in Mini.

Not yet, I think. The built-in S60 browser cant'. OM (Symbian or Wi-Mo) cant'. Opera Mini cant' either. I've used NetFront for Wi-Mo also, and that can't do copy-paste either.

I wonder why it can't be done. I think copy-paste has been one of the most wished-for features for forever, but they still don't implement it.
