Come on dude BB isnt that good on its default browser every1 know that even worse w/o umts or up n gemini's smtimes faster than e63's cz gemini load mobile ver web than e63 who load fullweb more, so its diffrent. a good news u can set opera on BB APN btw so it wont cost u hard, try google it.
Ps: dont look on e63 anymore, it owns opera block :p.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2010-02-08 21:17 from Qxpq - click to readHi! Let me say that themes are a bit of a problem. I had a N85 and Zedge had tons of free themes. I think they don't support Blackberry themes there yet. You need to go to forums and stuff, I've found a few free ones on Crackberry's forums and store. For themes you need to make sure you download from your phone through a OTA (over the air) link and that the theme is specific to the OS you are running example 4.6.1 (menu/options/about). If you download a theme on a pc then copy and paste the .jad and .cod files to your memory card with My PC or use Desktop Manager/App Loader. Once the .jad and .cod files are on, go to Media/menu/explore and select the jad file. Music is .mp3 and I think .wav, you need to use Media Sync with iTunes or Windows Media Player or open My PC and open the Music folder and copy/paste. Videos should be .mp4 or 3gp, avi (divx/xvid) files are supposedly supported but I haven't tested it. I download HQ vids from youtube in mp4 and they look great. Hope I helped you with your problem!

i just want to say that in my opinion using the default browser by blackberry is more stable,fast and user-friendly..i thought that using the opera mini will be interesting but im totally wrong..ive download the opera mini 5 this morning n cost me unhappy..the UI is sucks dude..n made me lil harder to surf the net n not like using the default browser..but back then,when im using E63 b4 get my gemini im enjoying so much using opera mini instead of the default nokia browser..the experience using the opera mini in E63 is more comfortable than using it in gemini..do u agree with me folks?i think better using the default browser in gemini..hahaha

I just bought this phone yday and it's amazing.. I'm enjoying it very much! although it's not 3g, when you activate your bbm it also activates facebook 24/7 and msn. although its a great phone, its battery life is HORRIBLE!! but it's no biggie just charge it :) oh and it's at a VERY reasonable price!!
