Blackberry torch 9860. BBC page will not pinch and zoom.

Hi, this is the first Blackberry torch 9860 I have bought. Can someone please tell me why I can not pinch and zoom on the BBC mobile site?. I have this as my home page. I can scroll up and down and touch a news item and open it up but this will not pinch and zoom.

On that page, try "double-tapping" on a block of text you wish to enlarge.

Please explain, are you on the BBC mobile app?

 

Or a BBC mobile webpage?

 

What's the URL, let me test it.

That ^^ page, I easily pinch and zoom in or out.

 

If I click on a news story link, I cannot do so. Those mobile pages are not designed to zoom, the reflow to the size of your browser.

Still not work on my blackberry. So I must assume that  it is not meant to be.

Well, it does work on mine. So I guess it is meant to be.

 

Works on the main page, the URL you gave me.

Not on a subsequent news article link.

 

Are you pinching? or actually touching the screen and SPREADING your fingers to zoom, sorta the opposite of a "pinch"?
