    Hi Guys,

    A friend of mine just picked up a tour, and seeing how fast opera mini is on my storm is, he decided to download it as well.

    After installing, he went to use it, and it didn't work. It ran the connection test and changed his connection to http from socket. Http is much slower compared to socket but works. I thought this couldn't be, as i've used opera mini on my storm with success under socket mode, as well as with my curve before I bought the storm.

    We tried a battery pull, uninstall, re-install, another battery pull, and nothing seems to work. It appears that socket mode just doesn't want to work on his tour. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I just want to try to isolate to either Opera mini, his phone, or his account. BTW, he's on the Telus network.

    Thanks guys

    I'm with Bell and on my old curve and storm, it was automatically set to Socket and now it will only work in http. However, I find that http is just as fast as socket mode. Didn't notice a difference.

    My vzw tour doesn't let me do socket either. The speed is near the same but I notice it spends more time "connecting" than socket mode
