Opera Mini 4.3

Opera Software has released a major update to the Opera Mini 4 series, which is optimized for older and less powerful phones that don't work well or at all with Opera Mini 6.  In my opinion, Opera 4.n is the best browser for Boost iDEN phones.  Most of the Boost CDMA phones can run Opera 6 well but if yours doesn't 4.3 is the next best thing. According to Opera the changes from 4.2 to 4.3 are:

A fresh new look
Opera Mini 4.3 boasts a new and improved design, including a selection of great new skins for you to choose from.

  1. Why does my opera keeps on freezing and which is the best version for nokia6070?

  2. not installed

  3. 4.3 could not install...

    • What phone?

  4. I thank opera mini 4.3 coz I can really surf the internet for free, but the problem is my opera mini's size is always increasing every time I use it. How do I stop this from happening? I have tried reinstalling it three times, yet it still happens. I hope you can help me with my problem. Thank you and God bless.

    • Clear history & cookies & don't save pages or bookmarks.

  5. With u i feel complete.... I like this

  6. 4.3 is so good but it sometimes doesnot installs .thats it problem

    • Hard to say without seeing the error message, maybe the connection is lost during the install. Why do yo need to install more than once?

  7. These new upgrades sometimes gives us(operamini users) problems...I've been using version 4.3,I'd suggest that u keep the old version and the user opt to change for the new one...concerned

    • If the update doesn't work you can always go back to the old version. Most old versions of Opera Mini are here on BoostApps

  8. That's exactly what I did but still when I got to the link 4.3 it does what I described before I don't understand it

  9. one question i got OM 4.2 on my phone im trying to upgrade to 4.3 but every time i go to the OM page on phones browser click on the 4.3 link it redirects me to another page with 6.1 links it does it every time, what could be causing this? thanks!

    • What "OM page" is that? I just tried going to http://boostapps.com/apps/opera-mini-4-3/ with the Rambler's browser and it took me to the 4.3 download page.

    • thats http//m.operamini.com/ and im using BB 8330 whats strange is that never had that problem before , could the link be broken or something?

    • the thing is a did it before and it would take me to the download page with no problem this time when i click on the 4.3 link instead of doing that it just takes to another page with links to opera mini 6.1

    • On http://m.opera.com you should be able to scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Other download options" which will take you to a page where you can download Opera Mini 4.3 for BlackBerry

    • thats exactly what i do dennis i click on m.operamini.com and it presents me links for 6.1 versions so i scroll down and click other variants which takes me to a bunch of links so i see opera mini 4.3 for blackberry click on it but takes me back to the same page with the 6.1 versions it does it every time, is it not compatible?

    • Probably a bug with the Opera Mini download site. Try this direct link to the BlackBerry version of 4.3 for BlackBerry OS 4.3.0 - 4.6.n

    • thank you very much Dennis, it worked like a charm!!

  10. does anybody know how to download apps to the new motorola theory?

    • The same as the other CDMA Boost phones. Open the download page in the phone browser and click the JAD file link. Is there a particular app that's not working on the Theory?

    • ok thanks Dennis gonna try to download opera mini cause browser on this phone not very good ,someone tried to do it but couldnt

  11. works good on i465

  12. nic app but can increase its speed..

  13. loads and runs on i296 just too slow to use

  14. does anybody know if leaving opera mini running in the backgroung will eat up battery life?

    • In my experience leaving Opera Mini runing in the background on the iDEN phones has no noticible effect on battery life.

    • thanks Dennis but how about cdma phones?

    • My Rambler and most of the CDMA phones can't run apps in the background. The only one's I know can are the Incognito, BlackBerry and Curve. I think maybe the Seek and Rant can but I've never seen any confirmation of that or used either phone. But the Opera Mini browser in the background isn't doing anything and shouldn't require any CPU cycles and thus shouldn't require any battery power.

    • thats all i needed to know , thank u Dennis

    • thanks for ur help Dennis, one question kinda off topic thou but whats ur take on the new motorola clutch i475 and moto theory these r pretty new dont know if u seen them yet , im wonderin why would they release onother iden phone by now everybody knows is gonna be shutdown kinda strange anyway thanks

  15. Oh!didn't know that,thanks Dennis

  16. has anybody noticed anything wrong with both operamini 6 n 4.3 ? they seem buggy and glitchy ive been back n forth with both but a lot of times they hang for a long time when loading a page also show errors or server could not be found or server timed out i wish i could say i dont happen often but it does n its driving me nuts i thot it was my phone but its not i really hope they fix it .

    • The Opera Mini servers and the Internet in general have been having issues today. Amazon's S3, which a lot of sites use, is down. Things should get better.

  17. I use this on my juno and it works great.i love it.i can access anything with it :)

  18. 4.3 is definately faster than 4.2 on my I465. only complaint is the skins. only 4 total including default. not a big deal but operas bragging about new/more skins. only new one is snow (white). red pink and default(opera theme) are it.

  19. i'm using an original version OS i465 (never could update) & this version of opera seems to load quicker @ start & w/ page load. i so far have had no issues. WORKS GREAT - Thanks Opera & Thank You Dennis for posting it 4 us.

  20. opera mini 4.3 works great on my BB 8330 ,had OP 6 for a couple of days definetly more features than 4.3 but was a little unstable some bugs too , i think OP 6 works better for touchscreen phones like Iphone or Android etc. for some reason 4.2 didnt work right on my BB i could never click on anything using the trackball and had to use keyboard to do anything else it was frustraiting but they fixed it with 4.3, im glad they upgraded it.

  21. oh okay i though so thanks

  22. According to phone wizard at Opera site,
    i776 can use 4.3,but i580 and i760 should use 4.2.
    But i580 works fine(i760 powers down phone when started)

  23. what i wanna kno is if that youtube thing is for real can we finally now stream videos? i already no its impossible dennis said bu twe live in a world were nothing is impossible just saying hahahaha :)

    • By itself Opera Mini is not a video player. All it does is pass the video link to the phone's OS. So if your phone can play a given video using the built browser (Incognito, Rambler) it can now play it from Opera Mini.
      If you phone can't handle steaming (all iDEN phones, Rant, Juno) then it still can't with Opera Mini.

  24. i downloaded this 4.3 to my BB 8330 and i kinda like it better than OP 6 but every time i try to go into a webpage any one, it always asks me for permission saying it may not be from a trusted server or something like that i was wondering if anyone knows how to stop it? thanks!

    • t's been a long time since I used a BlackBerry but I remember that there's a whole page of configurable security settings where you can turn off most warnings. Maybe someone with a current BlackBerry can give you specific instructions.

    • ok thanks!

  25. I was gonna buy an Incognito but being I invested in this i776 by getting this SUPER FAT extra life battery. I just want tabbed browsing and copy n paste in ONE browser I enjoy. The Opera! Hate having 3 browsers in my phone to run my sites and for browsing

  26. I actually tried Opera 6 and it overwrites 4.2 as it doesn't install along side it. Just as an upgrade! Then again when it hung up I deleted it got 4.3 and sync'd it again to get my 4.2's data that was upgrade to the hungup Opera 6. :)

  27. Yes, as long as you have an account on Opera.com you can backup EVERYTHING! Agreed with you there. Once I accidently deleted my Opera. But downloaded another one and went to my account and sync'd it and got everything back! :)

  28. I'm just a bit surprised. They could've added tabbed browsing! And try for a copy n paste like UCWEB and BOLT have. And what about the photo upload that's in 3.1, could've been added? I'd like my i776 to have ONE BROWSER, the Opera with these features!

  29. Works well. I can not tell if it is faster than 4.2. Not sure if I notice any new features. I have not figured out the skinning thing yet but the default skin looks cool. Much better and more polished than 4.2including the loading bar, It looks closer to Opera mobile 5 and 6. Not sure if the skinning feature was in 4.2. I465 Clutch user here so I am not going to get into what doesn't work like the YouTube thing. If you have 4.2 installed though this will not upgrade 4.2 to 4.3. It installs along side it so essentially you have 2 Opera browsers installed. Once you have 4.3 set up how you want. You can even run both simultaneously to compare bookmarks and settings. Once you are done making your 4.3 install like 4.2 as far as settings and bookmarks etc., you can delete 4.3 and have space for a new app/game to install in it's place.

  30. Oh my . The Opera App store recognizes the i465 listed . I can't wait to give it a try . :D

  31. When I installed this the app program space was 252K.By mistake I deinstalled it.After reinstalling(I even tried redownloading),it is 403K.No big deal,just weird.

  32. I like the new look , it is crisp and clean and the synchronize feature restored my bookmarks , speed dial , feeds and bookmarklets perfectly . But don't forget that it does not backup your cookies , so write down your login names and passwords .

  33. ill thank u here as i did on fb.nice update.looks & feels good.and maybe a smidge faster on the ol i776.im on OM 4.3 now,so far so good.
