Note to foreign readers , the settings are good for Philippine networks only. You can use this post as guide but instead use your subscriber's homepage and GPRS Settings.
Note: December 10, 2012. An updated and working version of this post is found in Free Internet Browsing with Opera Mini (Globe and Smart). The post talks about Opera Mini for symbian phones which is optimized for Globe/TM and Smart/TnT users. If you are an android phone user, you may refer to Browse the Net for FREE with Your Android Phone and Opera Mini. The guides are detailed already, so very suitable for first time users.
What you need:
· Smart users: Download Opera Mini 2.06 (I got this from esato forums)
Download OM 4.2 Smart
· Globe users: Download OM 4.2 Globe
Opera Mini 2.06- Download Opera Mini 2.06.
· Activated GPRS sim card. (Smart: SET phonemodel send to 211 or Globe: GO phonemodel send to 2951 for free) Example: SET N70
Or you may want to manually input the default values, refer here.
· Phone with GPRS
Most of the settings are for Nokia users and for those who do not have to use the prov files to make it work. For other brands, try to explore your phone. The settings are just there as long as it’s GPRS capable.
What to do:
· Setting up the Internet Profiles
Only Globe users who opt to use the OM 4.2 will need to follow steps 1-3. Otherwise, proceed to Step 4.
1. For Nseries (N73, N70, N82, etc), go to Tools>Settings>Connection>AccessPoints>Options>New
Select the Use existing settings choose myGlobe INET (SmartInternet).
2. Rename Access Point to say, Globe Net Opera (Smart Opera). Any name.
3. Press Options>Advanced Settings. No port and no proxy
(For Smart) Proxy: 188.8.131.52 Port 80
For N6230 likes, go to Web>Settings>ConnectionSettings>Active web setting
Activate 'empty'. Then go to Edit web settings. Rename it to your desired name e.g. Globe OM.
Data bearer: GPRS
Go to Bearer settings.
GPRS access point: type http.globe.com.ph
Authentication type: Normal
Data bearer: GPRS
Goto bearer settings.
GPRS access point: internet
Authentication type: Normal
4. Install your downloaded Opera Mini directly from your phone or transfer it through bluetooth or use Nokia PC suite. All files are jar format. Globe users can completely install the modded one even with zero balance and Smart users need one peso load.
· For 4.2 ver, there are no more tweaks needed for it to work. Just allow access to network and use the Access Point you had created above. Only uploading and browsing are possible. No video streaming (needs working proxies). It's good for browsing on desktop view.
· For Opera Mini 2.06
Smart: You need at least 1 peso load.
Create an internet profile with the following values in your connection settings and activate it:
Run Opera Mini then click OK when you reached the first page. Go to Menu--Tools--Settings--Netw0rk. Uncheck Shadow connect.
Scroll down and edit the opera mini server to:
Uncheck reset OM server at an error. Save.
Clcik My Opera at the Bookmarks and use the profile you created above when OM asks to access the network. Once you accepted the end user agreement then you had installed it successfully.
You can download and browse for free with this version but it is always in mobile view. Will not work with zero balance, always maintain at least one peso load.
Globe: Zero load will still install the 2.06. Use the default myGlobe Connect when OM asks to access the network. Wait for the error in connection message. Ok and you will land in the Homepage.
Go to Menu>Tools>Settings>Network.
Check Shadow Connect> enter in address box: http://www.globe.com.ph/globe.asp
Type in Opera mini server: http://email@example.com.
Uncheck Reset sever of an error. Save. Click My Opera link in the Bookmarks. It will take awhile to load. If the "info Repeat inquiry" shows, press ok and click the My Opera link again. It will now work.
You can download and browse for free with this version but it is always in mobile view.
This is the 2.06 homepage:
To download in 2.06: in your CP menu, go to Tools>App Manager>Options for Opera Mini2.06>Suite settings. Change both Read and Edit User Data to 'ask every time'.
Everytime you download a file, edit the url in the downloader manager. If you are using Smart, insert insert
wap.igmat.tv.t9space.com/power/s/http/ after the http:// in your download link. Like, http://wap.igmat.tv.t9space.com/power/s/http/www.mediafire.com/blahblah. Scroll down the download page and uncheck the "Return to browser w/o report" option.
If you are using globe, use wap.portal.globe.com.ph@. Like, http://firstname.lastname@example.org/blahblah
The download page in 2.06:
If you are downloading from mediafire, there is a trick for the download link to show up. Once you are on the mediafire page, you will see the download in progress notice. You just have to reload the page and the download link will show up. Press # then 0 in your keypad (Reload shortcut keys).
If you want to download files from hosting sites that allows countdown timers, like mediafire, megaupload, 4shared, rapidshare, etc., use AED Dloader. Learn about Aed Dloader.
This last part is still not working for free. I included this in case you want paid streaming. I will make the updates once I figured out how to make it work again.
To stream videos using in Opera Mini: In real player option menu, change the connection setting to the default SmartInternet or myGlobe Stream configuration.
If you got questions just use the comment form and I’ll try to answer if I can.
