    Viigo > Opera as far as RSS readers go. Opera's rarely updates correctly and is slow as hell to load. I like the preview feature better too. :o

    I have a BB on SERO and nothing except basic voice worked until they got the BB plan added. I couldn't even text message!

    they say everything non-voice gets routed through the BB systems.

    strange. I have unlimited text and I browse the internet on Opera and get directions/traffic all the time on google maps and I have no BB plan. I know there is a way to get Gmail on your BB but you have to go through the computer and load it on as a program or something because the gmail download site will only download from BB browser, not Opera Mini.

    dunno, man. I originally signed up with the normal sero unl data plan and nothing except voice worked.

    I called sprint and went to the special bb dept and they said it was a well-known issue and putting the bb service would fix it. They switched me to a sero "voice only" plan and added the bb codes and resent my service books. everything began working within 5 minutes.
