    I can't seem to even log on to GT from my Blackberry. When I do log in, I get the "you are being redirected" screen, and then when the new screen opens it indicates I am not logged on.

    This cycle continues as often as I try to log on.

    I had a similar issue with another site and deactivating my Javascript solved it, but hell if I can figure this one out.

    Yes, same problem. When in the web browser click the blackberry button (to the left of the trackball) to bring up the menu.
    Scroll down to "options" and click
    Scroll to Cache options and click
    Then clear your history.
    Then log in right away, and click the box for "keep me logged in"
    It USUALLY works for me.
    Good luck.

    "Hey Mike, you still got a Blackberry 'cause I just got one"

    "You shoulda gotten a Droid, it's way better"

    To quote Billy Madison, "things that would have been useful YESTERDAY!!!!"

    Most of my posts, including this one, are from my BB. What browser are you using?

    Actually to be honest, I could't even browse this forum from my blackberry when I had it. The little advertisement at the top made it horribly unbearable in blackberry browser.

    My blackberry tour kicks *** and I can view/post with ease. I was going to get the droid until I saw a group of 13 year old gang bangers playing games on one at the Verizon store.

    Use my Curve to browse CT and ARFCOM all the time. Only post from time to time from it unless I'm not near a comp.

    Thanks for the replies... I am posting with it now. I'm using Firefox. Oddly, the site clearly shows that I am not logged in but I can access my control panel and apparently can post. Go figure.

    As far as "crackberry" I'm really not that into it... I mean its ok but I certainly don't see what the big deal with these things is. Hell, it took me 20 minutes to type this on the pinhead sized keys!!!

    What is your OS? After I updated to 4.5 I've had less internet problems.

    That is a bug in the redirect script.

    Login, watch it dump you back on the homepage, seemingly appearing to not be logged. Then open a thread and/or access your userCP and you will find you ARE logged in.

    I'd have to be paid by the post to post using a blackberry. If I don't have my laptop, my iphone works great.

    Opera or Bolt are a significant improvement to the stock browser, IMO.

    Not on your backberry you're not....I take it you are using the browser that came on it? Go to www.mini.opera.com and download it. Don't do the 5.0 beta it has issues yet. Try it out and you will like it

    Well, I confess I am an ignoramus about comp-u-ters but I'm pretty sure when I review the browser info it shows I have 3 to choose from, Blackberry, IE, and Firefox; After some trial and error I chose FireFox.

    I'm downloading Opera 4.2 now, thanks!

    Bolt formats and displays better, IMO, but is slower in my experience. I have started having problems with Opera formatting one of the area news site's content. Probably on their end, but still annoying.
