This version is no longer working. It shows the same "Bolt browser has been discontinued message as all other Bolt versions. There's a new working (for now) version here.
The Bolt Browser was discontinued Dec 14th and the servers were shut down. At least that's what Bolt is saying. However a reader on my WapReview.com site was kind enough to send me a link to a version that works. It's labeled "SBB Bolt". I'm guessing SBB is a mobile operator (Google seems to imdicate that there are SBB mobile companies in Pakistan, Switzerland and Russia) and this is a custom version of Bolt that was created for SBB. I think it works either because Bolt is contractually obligated to keep the service running for a certain period of time for SBB or else SBB has licensed the Bolt server code and is running their own server.
I have no idea how long this version will continue working, enjoy it while it lasts
On iDEN phones if you have the old non-working version of Bolt installed, delete it before sending this one to your phone. Or else choose highlight Bolt in the Java menu, press the Menu key and choose "Update" after downloading.
On iDEN phones the OK key doesn't work, use the Call key as OK. Also the following settings are recommended for best performance and stability on all iDEN phones except the i9 and i856:
- Set magnification to large or greater;
- Set image quality to low or none;
- Turn off the inline text input;
- Set the display mode to mobile.
