    Cool App…Easy & Fast to access Web… Very Smooth. Typing is bit irritating, especially numbers as there is no number mode there… Only alpha mode is there.

    I already installed opera mini beta 5 on my Sony Ericsson K850i. I tried to run it and only says installing then after a few seconds the message will appear, “No working Network connection detected”, but when I try the opera mini 4.2 turbo it works fine.
    Is there any internet seetings that needs to be configured first before beta 5 will work? Or it should be the same setting as for 4.2 turbo?
    Hope I can find some answers,I really wanna try the beta 5.

    Thank You
