    Older Treos (PalmOS4) have to use this, too. Newer Treos use PalmOS5; browsers for that won't run on the i500 (or other PalmOS4 devices). PPCs use something else altogether, and it won't ever work on your Palm.

    I've not had any problems (yet) with nweb. I certainly never had any fatal errors when using WebPro. For people who've seen that: did you use WebPro?

    Yeah, I was generally aware of that... what I was really asking was whether the Treo browser also uses a proxy, meme pour le PPC, and whether we couldn't just use the same proxy.

    The website that bombed for me on nweb was www.imdb.com, the Internet Movie Database. Just go there, lookup a movie and try to read its review info. All of it works fine on Blazer *and* WebPro, but resets nweb.

    Mind you, that is really the first website I tried on nweb, but God knows what that means about other websites (I'm betting that nweb crashes *alot*). Certainly the other posted report here of random resets doesn't inspire confidence...

    I just did exactly that. Clicked a ton of external and user review links. No crash on my i500. But it isn't exactly a made for palm site...

    Are you sure you don't have some hack installed that's causing the crashes? I know Middlecaps played havoc with my i500

    hmmm... well, I dunno...
    yes of course I have hacks... but nothing remarkable: Xmaster, MarkNDial, FindHack. That's about it. And all are indispensible (i.e. I'm not willing to give up any of these). What is remarkable is that WebPro doesn't reset, but nweb does...

    Perhaps I'll give it one more try. I also just d/l Xiino and it looks ok (and works fine on www.imdb.com).

    BTW, I know that IMDB isn't made for Palm, but are you willing to restrict your webbrowsing to made-for-Palm sites ? I'm not...

    Doesn't someone actually sell a new version of Blazer (that'll run on OS4)?
    Sprint Treo 700p (previously Sprint i500, Sprint i330 [yuk], Sprint i300, Sprint StarTac, Verizon StarTac)

    I've used WebPro on my phone before, but not since I got the blinking death a while ago. I restored my phone and WebPro wasn't working, so I deleted it. But before the restore, WebPro was working fine and it had no Fatal Errors. I do use some simple extensions, but my wife's phone, which she just purchased last week, has nothing but a few games and nweb on it. In fact, she had the first two crashes between us. *grrrr* I do a lot of web browing on my phone! They better not try to foist a buggy piece of software on us! I got crashes on Deviantart, she got a few crashes on some classic rock bands' websites. And we've only had the thing installed for a few days.

    OK....this is making me nervous. While this seems to support Javascript, it doesn't seem to support https sites, so I can't logon to my web Outlook Exchange server. I couldn't do that with Webpro either, but I could with Blazer. Anybody tried to attach to secure sites? The specific message I got was
    HTTP=invalid HTTP response
    Effective URL is: (and then it lists the URL I had entered)

    Please contact your system adminstrator

    HTTP502 bad gateway

    I just browsed around the IMDB with nweb with no frashes...


    As for helper-proxies: Blazer3, which (I think) ships with the Treo600, is a proxyless browser so it will never have this sort of problem. But, it doesn't run on PalmOS4.

    An option for a proxyless browser might be to try Opera mini (although it's still just a 'beta' release): http://operalover.tntluoma.com/8/opera_mini_on_treo
    (lofi version: http://mytreo.net/downloads/details-...ra_Mini_-_LoFi)

    It's a Java Midlet. I do not know if it will run using the older Sun-provided MIDP1, since the newest IBM MIDP2 requires PalmOS5.

    one...since this is somewhat phone specific, I don't see why it had to be moved to the general forum. For those that never go there and don't get the text message, they might run into lots of wasted time on the phone with tech support or create new threads in their respective phone's forum as this thread gets relegated to the back pages.

    anyway....just screams "screw the people that don't upgrade to something new." That being said, I installed it and it used my webpro info opening up to my yahoo wap site and having my webpro history and bookmarks in it.

    Still going through a proxy I believe. Host adr is sprintpcs.proxy.novarra.com.

    Doesn't seem to work any worse than webpro or the other ones out there. It seems just like a rebadged version of webpro, but it seems to take up about 150k less. So for me, I'll just delete webpro (745k to 895k). For those that don't use a different browser, they're now stuck with an extra 745k plus all the memory used by the cache which beefed up webpro for me to almost a meg. Can't wait till Cingular or Verizon comes out with a small, touchscreen pda phone because my whole company will jump ship in a heartbeat. I highly doubt Sprint will ever have an evdo pda phone close to the size of the i500.

    JRoss.....no you can't import. I actually just deleted webpro and lost all my bookmarks and history. So now I need to install the files again.

    and I believe Opera does not run on OS4 as Blazer3 does not. Remember, we are the black sheep in the pda phone world. Get used to the half assed solutions and taunts that we have antiquated technology.

    still can't /d to disconnect. And there is no open page button. You have to do a /O or go to the Page menu to do that. Just little annoyances that I've noticed so far.

    And whoever did move this thread, why are there even the following categories in the Palm PDA Phones category if you're not going to put something such as this there that is palm specific and nog just "General Stuff"???????

    Palm OS Discussion: Discuss software here that isn't device specific
    Palm Phone News: News about Palm Phones

    I agree, when a discussion originates and is very active in a forum, i dont think it should just be moved...but i dont have mod rights on this board so i cant just move it back...

    You should be able to use a file manager (like FileProg) to delete just WebPro without deleting your bookmarks and history files.

    * Edit*

    If you've already deleted WebPro you can go into your Palm Archive folder and double-click on the history and bookmark files to re-install them without re-installing WebPro.

    I reported this post to the moderator and asked that it be moved back, but no response. Ridiculous. Never should have been moved.

    The new browser has given me 8 or 10 soft resets and then my first FSOD yesterday. I'm not pleased.
