    First post so go easy on me

    Well recently I decided to replace my old trust 7290 with a 8700g
    (I know its old but the keyboard is perfect, I do lots of emails)
    I orderd the BB with an Otterbox and new battery

    Mailman dropped it off, I powered it up and found an IT policy still enabled and data left on the phone.

    No prob did a cmdr wipe and installed 4.5 OS, did a cmdr "reset to factory/IT wipe"

    Checked the security settings found the firewall was disabled and no services running.

    Sent service books and began installing with apps I use
    google talk
    google maps
    repligo reader

    went to install opera mini 5 and got the dreaded
    "The application operette$2dhifi has attempted to open a connection to a location inside the firewall and outside the firewall which is not allowed by your IT policy."

    checked security settings and found my firewall was enabled with a picture of a padlock next to it, only service running is google talk

    went back and did a cmdr IT policy wipe
    found firewall disabled, sent service books again reinstalled apps and found the same problem with the firewall

    havent installed my 'getitback' software yet till I find out whats wrong with this 8700.
    So whats going on? I searched the Google and forums and cant seem to find a good answer.

    Is T-mobiles service books doing this?

    BTW I have the BIS service, no BES or company policy
    Have set everything to allow
    makes no diffrence at all

    OK BB gods, I need help

    repeated the steps again, but uninstalled ALL traces of blackberry out of computer

    I've got similar problem with Opera Mini. Might use the trick with policy.bin change ( forums.crackberry.com/f3/remove-i-t-policy-blackberry-569/ ) instead of reinstalling all RIM software.
