Default Team BHP on the move!!!

Hey fellas,
I was waiting for some of my friends at a resto,when this 'dhinchak' idea of accessing team-bhp via wap struck me.
And voila,i was on the site within seconds.The connection speed was decent enough and the pages opened up well showing all the images/avatars etc.
Also,anyone can login into his/her account and post replies too.
So now you know what to do in order to kill time without your computer.
Now go,boom!

I used it on my N6600 and N9300 phones.I have an Orange connection on both the phones.Its best viewed on the N9300 with that big screen.
My take is that the Sony Ericson P910i should be the best for this.

Ya the Sony Ericsson P910i and the new 6 and 7 Series Nokia's are good for viewing webpages. But you need to activate the net connection on your Orange phone and I think its a little expensive, specially for a prepaid connection.

I thought u can only use wap enabled websites thru GPRS on orange. Since team-bhp is a .com site does this mean we can visit all sights thru GPRS. As far as i know, orange offers OrangeOnline for pda phones and stuff thru which u can visit all the websites and use msn messenger and stuff, if all this can happens thru gprs y would any1 take orangeonline for 600 bucks a month?

Hey Sahil,
One can connect to any god-damn site through this GPRS service of Orange.
The speed is pretty decent and all that the connection costs is 99rs per month.And yeah,MMS is absolutely free.No charger whatsoever.
I've been using this service right from the day it was launched.It was a little tacky earlier on as the speed was disastrous and hardly any websites used to open up.But thats not an issue presently.
I dont know much about BPL and Airtel services though.But Orange surely rocks.

Hey NC,
Go to your GPRS settings option and 'clear cache'.That might help initially.
Try loading that page through the normal phone browser.It should open.If it shuts down,clear the cache again and try opening it.Also do try some other websites and see if you are facing the same problem.
And yeah another thing i forgot to mention,even on the GPRS type www.team-bhp.com and not wap.team-bhp.com.
