Default Help me use GCM on my Blackberry (Curve)

This is kind of a spinoff; I know others don't have any problems. BUT I can't get GCM to load right on my phone. I can get the message board, or at least the header. But when I click "New Posts" or anything else it seems to freeze up. I tried column view and it wasn't any better. I saw someone mention using 'mobile view' but I have no idea what that is.

Can anyone help me?

This is a serious matter.

Scroll down to the very bottom and on the left and change Default Style to Mobile, Cell, Phone, etc.

Yay! Found this on the search and was just sitting in my rocking chair GCMing on my Crackberry.

Thank you, Linda, Knower-of-All-Things-Technical.

Would this change your default display so that the next time you view the site on a PC, it would be set up for a mobile browser?

I assign you the job of tester. Please report back with your findings.

It looks like GCM is displaying the same on my computer even while I have the mobile display selected on my iTouch; it must be recognizing the browser rather than the user? I don't see an option here to change it back, though.

Sounds like it's recognizing the browser. I guess on the phone, there is no reason to change it back. As long as it doesn't mess up the computer browser, right?

Default Re: Help me use GCM on my Blackberry (Curve)

I just discovered how to switch it back. At the bottom of the page is a search link. I was going to try searching for how to switch back but the search page that loaded had an option for "PC view" and clicking that got rid of the mobile display.

The (normal) PC view doesn't take any longer to load and allows me to go right to new posts in a thread. I haven't seen any benefit in mobile mode.

(now I see one benefit; PC mode doesn't say "posted from itouch" so I have to declare that myself.)

Tester, I have a new phone user asking me if she can get smilies with the phone skin. What shall I tell her?

I'm on my PC but using the mobile "skin." I can see your smilies, but to use one I'd have to know the code. Let me try posting a couple from memory.

I see my smilies, but each is followed by : - )

Back to PC mode . . . now I see the smilies I typed, but they aren't showing the : - ) like they did from mobile mode. Mobile mode also doesn't show New Posts, or have a way to go directly to new posts in a thread.
