our brave new digital future.

am basically following all the steps here - http://orangatame.com/support/?id=50150000000M7fh - but no matter how many times i do step 5 and save, it defaults back to "vodafone live". WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY just whyyyyyyy

says i need to alter my browser configuration but every time i change it to "internet browser" it resets itself automatically to "vodafone live" - why the fuck does it keep doing this??????

Mine did that for ages - I think you need to changeit in both Browser Configuration and General Properties. Still, Twitterberry works fine on mine, and it's exactly the same as yours, so no idea what's happening there.

but i changed it in general properties first as per the instructions! and it just keeps switching back automatically.

it also won't let me log into twitter AT ALL while browsing. AAARGH i hate this stupid machine.

Are you saving before you close?

Matt DC, Saturday, 17 October 2009 17:42 (4 years ago) Permalink

yes!!!!!!!!!! repeatedly! everywhere!

Also, are you doing this in the Browser itself or on the main Blackberry Settings menu?

Matt DC, Saturday, 17 October 2009 17:43 (4 years ago) Permalink

Try whichever one you aren't doing.

Matt DC, Saturday, 17 October 2009 17:43 (4 years ago) Permalink

So that would be Options -> Advanced Options -> Browser, and then change the default browser configuration that way.

in the browser. and it worked suddenly and randomly when i did exactly the same thing as i'd been doing in vain all the other times. fuck this technology shit.

ok, sigh, how the hell do i get photos off the blackberry and on to my mac?? keep trying to drag and drop them but it says "the finder cannot complete the operation because some data in <jpg file> could not be read or written (error code -36)". and i want to throw it all across the room and tear the head off whoever invented these cursed machines.

I have a second hand Blackberry in a drawer. I broke my current phone at the weekend and spent all Sunday afternoon trying to figure out all the hows/whats/whys of it before I decided to just give up and stick my SIM in an old Nokia 3310

Pretty happy with the new Blackberry Curve (I think mine is 8330). The newer browser is a huge improvement. I kind of don't want an elaborate gaming/music/app device so much as just a good way to check and send e-mails on the go and occasionally get directions or a quick food recommendation. I find the BB well-suited to this and I like the BB keyboard (probably the main reason I didn't switch to another brand). My stubby fingers and touch screens don't get along.

gah, what's the best ilx stylesheet for the blackberry (8520)? the iphone one has all the text in a thin tiny column in the middle of the screen and i don't see an option for a mobile stylesheet (though i did c&p <a href=http://www.ilxor.com/ILX/NewAnswersControllerServlet?xml=true&stylesheet=mobile.xsl&boardid=40>;this</a> but i cant get to search or the individual boards or anything from that link

Old.css works fine on mine.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 8 March 2011 11:08 (3 years ago) Permalink

that's loads better, thanks matt.

what are the best settings? i find that when the list of threads comes up its in real tiny text so i zoom in but then have to select 'column view' to be able to read it properly, same with each thread too. is there a way of setting the blackberry browser to do this automatically?

you're right...it is crap. full of glitches and terrible level design...75% of the levels after 13 seems designed to be obnoxious and require a few lucky bounces to complete. and yet I keep playing it...hmmmmmm (hmmmmm)

my blackberry keeps making noises unbidden - it's like it's tuning in to some radio or something? i didn't tell it to do this, no relevant application seems to be running, i don't even know HOW to make it do it

it first happened the night of the boston bombing - it played a full news report for NO REASON at all and completely freaked me out. now it seems to be picking up some sort of broadcast from the french open - if i knew how to make this happen i would have done it myself, but now i am concerned with WHY and HOW DO I MAKE IT STOP.

Pull the battery?

Jeff, Friday, 31 May 2013 15:59 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah that'll probably work but i want to know why and i want it to NOT DO IT. i genuinely think all technology is a) not controlled by me in any way b) out to get me
