    Hi guys,

    Relative newbie here, had my BB Pearl for about a month and this site has been invaluable to me for setting stuff up and so on.

    It also means I'm now obsessed with this site! But when I try to go to it in the blackberry browser I get the following error:

    "HTTP Error 503: Service Unavailable

    The server is currently unable to handle your request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server. Please try loading a different page. Contact your service provider if this problem persists."

    Any ideas?

    I'm able to access it without no problems. I use the following address to access it on my bb.
    http://forums.crackberry.com

    Try accessing it without the www, and try using the Default blackberry browser to see if that fixes the problem.

    Cdf3 is correct! Most times this issue is resolved by removing the www and replacing it with wap. When you select Go To the www auto populates!

    You can also try clearing your cache.

    Make sure your browser is set up correctly as well. All the boxes should be checked. While in browser: Menu- Options-Browser Configuration. Emulation Mode set to Blackberry. Content Mode set to WML & HTML.

    You can change the color by going to options/CB launcher/ then change color.
