Recommended Posts

hi all, i have a very boring job and bassicly i pass my time by using my i600 becuase i have unlimited internet usage and its great for passing time,

I really don't know about your specific phone, but Opera/OperaMini are supposed to work on windows devices (and many others). They are amongst the most popular browsers around. Opera Mini is free and is Java based.

Normally one needs to download a .cab file for installations. You could do that from your computer and transfer the file to your phone (activesync) or download it directly on your phone. After that you need to run the .cab file using a file browser. I expect those basics would be done rightly. Also, I hope you are downloading the correct version of the software for your phone platform.

Regarding the browsers: I have recently tried quite a few. Am finally using that is a surprising choice- UCWEB. It is a browser from China. As I understand, it has options for the content to be transcoded via a server (like opera mini) which saves on net usage costs (irrelevant in your case) and also usually makes the browsing faster, as the content is compressed/reformatted for mobiles BEFORE it reaches you phone. Also has many many options/features (tabbed browsing, easy downloading, formatting options, image quality, image zoom, etc. etc.). Despite lack of suitable support in English, like it immensely.


(don't judge the browser based on the poor usage of English on the site.

I haven't even been able to find the place to log into their site for using the extended options of email etc. Still find it the best amongst the free browsers I have checked.


PS: In case anyone finds a place to log in to the site and use the other options of email etc, please reply and update us.
