Best Opera Mini Sites:
My Home Page: m.netvibes.com –it gives me access to weather, gmail, espn, yahoo sports, new york times, and basically any feed you can think of all on one tiny page.
Get Google Maps:
- On your phones browser (not opera) go to moble.google.com/
- CLick on google maps
- Download and install the app
I couldn’t get the gmail java app working, there is always m.gmail.com on your web browser (Opera Mini)
Steps I Tried to get Gmail working – none worked, contact me if you get it working!
The flashed phone is not recognized by google so you have to circumvent the certificate by placing it on your phone manually. The certificate required by Gmail Mobile Application is available for download at www.verisign.com/support/roots.html.
Here’s an alleged guide to get the required certificate to resolve the “Your phone doesn’t have the appropriate certificate to communicate with Gmail” error.
- Download the certificate at www.fourteenfloor.com/files/PCA3ss_v4.cer to your computer.
- Transfer the certificate into your mobile phone and store it. .
- Click on the File in the finder
- Click on the Finder menu » Services » Send file to bluetooth device (shift-apple-b)
- Choose your phone from the list and choose send
- Accept the file on your phone
Does this work for a pay as you go tmobile contract? (with simcard)?

Hi just wondering if these settings are still workin’ for ya? Or did the port blocking from tmob around may of this year break it? Thanks! Oh, and THANKS for the instructions – priceless!

Nope. They pretty much blocked everything. Google Maps still works, but omniweb is blocked.
I’m now on a month by month contract from t-mobile, and I’m starting a iPhone collection plate… 🙂

For the Nokia 6300, installing the security certification by the method listed in this blog entry worked for me.
