Considering the fact that I had used Opera Mini for Blackberry flawlessly while on Globacom Nigeria’s BlackBerry Plan, I made the conclusion (backed by reports from Etisalat customer care reps) that Opera Mini just wasn’t compatible with the Etisalat Nigeria’s BlackBerry Plans thus I wrote the post Beware Of Etisalat BlackBerry Plan: Opera Mini Not Supported.
Like others before me, I had filed a complain via the Opera Forums and the Opera team got together to create a fix which they’ve now released today. Apparently some modifications they made to the app made it somewhat incompatible with BlackBerry 6.
Thus Opera Mini for BlackBerry moves from version 6.5.27025 to version 6.5.27548.
With this new release, Opera has fixed the issue of Opera Mini not installing on some BlackBerry devices running OS 6.0.
I’ve tested it now and my call credit has remained intact thus proving it now works with BIS.
To upgrade to the new version of Opera Mini 6.5, simply point your Blackberry default browser at http://m.opera.com and install over the previous version.
I’ll be downloading this version to my PC should in case sh*t happens with the next upgrade too and I’ll also be sticking with Etisalat Nigeria’s BlackBerry Services now
