Am a new blackberry owner.  Am trying to log on to an internet site that requires a log on.  When I try to log on I get a message "Unsupported Media Type:  Application/Octet-Stream".  Any suggestions?

Re: Octet/stream

it won't work.
It means the web server is expecting you to be using Internet Explorer.
or that the server wants you to download a binary file.
Sucks to be a bad webmaster.
