Your welcome. when you go to open opera mini, don't open opera mini, instead, go to options, and look for app access, permissions, or something like that, then set it to allow full access to the network connections. If it won't let you do that, then it's the service provider's firmware branding stopping you form accessing that menu and using opera mini. In that case, your only solution is to flash your phone with unbranded firmware.
I bought my phone unlocked from the Philippines, and there is no carrier branding on it at all. I am able to go to App. access, under which there is: communication, data access, and auto-start. Network access, messaging, and connectivity are under communication; multimedia rec., read user data, add and edit data, and smart card are under data access; In each of these subcategories, there are 4 options:"ask every time", "ask first time only", "always allowed", and "not allowed". For every option except connectivity, "always allow" is greyed out. I made sure that each option was "ask...", as that should still allow network access.
What phones has this method been confirmed to work on?
it works for most of the phones. But there are some phones, like 1 of mine, that doesn't allow network access to apps no matter what. But it should let you use opera with the settings set to ask. let me know if it works.
Unfortunately, it still doesn't work with the settings changed to "ask first time"/"ask always".
Just to make sure that I am clear on the purpose of these applications: it is to access the entire internet from a phone using Tmobile prepaid service (from a prepaid SIM on an unlocked, unbranded phone, as in my case)?
sorry for late reply again, very busy. The answer to your question is yes, it is to access the full internet on tmobile prepaid, but only on Opera Mini. I am guessing that your phone is blocking Opera Mini Modded edition cause it's not signed. Most phones have no problem with unsigned apps, but some phones do have a problem with unsigned apps.
I am just wondering what experiences people have had that have used multiple devices on T-Zones. For example, do they all seem to perform at the same speed in loading up content? I suspect that since some phones have faster processors than others that they may work fast on T-Zones. Also, do some devices using C-Bypass get more sites than others? I have one "dumb phone" that I have accessed T-zones on and, when comparing it to a Windows Mobile 6 device, it seemed like that device was able to get to some sites that the dumb phone couldn't access. Also, would devices functioning as a USB modem all perform pretty much the same or might some work fast than others?
@Jim1348: it also depends on the connection capabilities of your phone. When I was in NY last January my Nokia E51 connected on Edge speed (which is somewhere in between GPRS and UMTS). First time ever I had seen a capital E on my display. Took me a while before I realized what it meant. In Amsterdam I've got UMTS speed, but Edge was fine enough.
You probably had a handy little application on your Samsung that provided that feature. I have something like that on my Nokia 5310, but not on my debranded 6263 (disappeared upon debranding).
I think those types of applications (okay, apps) are available from third parties. I think one may be called "e-buddy", and there are more for sure. They use an SMS gateway to e-mail to get their results, not mobile web (at least I think so...).
Is the website down for everyone? I cant access it on my PC or phone.
Sorry for the downtime folks. I discovered it this morning when i tried to browse it to check my Email. There seems to be a DNS issue. I've submitted a support ticket to my hosting provider. All we can do is wait. I'll make a post here whent he website is back online.
