Browser very slow. Listening to the sales people ar Rogers who gave me the impression that 3G was fast has been a disappointment so far.Two bookmarks sign in for both Royal Bank and E trade have been 1.25 minutes and 25 seconds respectively.Both on the computer are no more than 2-3 seconds. I need help!!!! Please any suggestions to speed up or is this all this puppy has got. Thank you in advance

Re: Browser Very Slow

I hope you're not talking about loading the full desktop website version of both the Royal Bank and E-Trade. While the Bold's browser is capable of opening those sites, it's still not robust enough to load them quickly and properly. Personally, I mostly open up sites that are mobile optimized. Those usually open up fast and without a glitch.


But I do understand where you're coming from. I too like to sign into my bank's account every now and then using my phone's browser. I tried opening Bank of Montreal's website and it did take quite a while to load.


I suggest also upgrading your phone's OS to the latest software. I noticed a lot of browsing improvements compared to the older version. The latest official version now is Here is a link to a thread that walks you through the upgrade:

 Thanks for your comments. I have upgraded yesterday however I have not witnessed any change so far. You are correct the Web based sites are slow. I thought it was the Machine. Thanks again
