Opera Mini 3.1

This is  Opera Mini 3.1 patched to fix an issue which causes the Zeus  serries phones (currently the i9 and i856) to reboot while browsing. Details here. This version of Opera Mini 3.1 is only recommended for i9 and i856 users.  The generic version is faster on other models and does not exhibit the rebooting bug on them.

If you already have Opera Mini 3.1 on your phone, Download Apps will not automatically prompt you to install the new version after downloading it. You need to go to Java Apps, highlight Opera Mini, press the menu key and choose “Update”. Say yes to the prompt “Keep existing application data” so you don’t lose your bookmarks.

Type: Freeware
Vendor: Opera Software – Product Page, Online Help, Forum
Data Connection Required: Yes
Supported iDEN phones: All Zeus Series (i9, i856)  only

Downloading uses paid data. Downloads are for basic phones that support Java ME such as Nokia S40 phones. They do not work on Android, Apple, Firefox or Windows phones.

  1. can my contacts be copied from a boost i9 to boost blackberry curve

    • Probably. Try sending them with Bluetooth. I think you have to send them one at a time though.

  2. So far, I like this browser better than any other of the ones I’ve tried, yet and get this-all keys are mapped correctly, even the OK button! Sorry about the multi-messages. I couldn’t fit all into the first!

  3. I wanted to let you know, I have the Boost i290. First, I attempted installing the 5.1 version of this browser. It installed, but wouldn’t load, so I tried this one. I successfully installed it and am currently using it to browse this site and I must say,

  4. i have a i9 nextel phone and the screen just went out on me and i need to get the text to speech. with the vopice of barbra or simon. i need some help with it so i can get my contacts, or hear my contacts. please some one help me.

    • If you are asking for help you should post you comment on the help page not on this Opera Mini page!

      I don’t know anything about text to speech on the i9, but there are easier ways to retrieve your contacts from your dead phone:
      1. Contacts are on the sim so if you put you sim in another iDEN phone you can see them.
      2. If the external screen still works you can press the “Smart button” (it’s on the right side of the phone and has a square icon) to display contacts. Use the volume rocker to scroll through the contacts and press the speaker phone key to make a call.
      3. You can copy your contacts to a Windows PC with the free iDEN Phonebook Manager from Motorola See: Edit and Backup your Contacts on Your PC

  5. I am confused which opera should i get

    • You can have all three! Start with 4.2, it’s the most well-rounded.

  6. How do you get Opera mini on Blackberry 8330 everytime i get to the bottom to hit the accept button it kicks me to the front screen??

    • Press the BlackBerry button and choose “Accept”

    • The Boost CDMA phones can download apps using the phone’s browser. Go to:
