'Always Ask' Doesn't Always Mean Just That

by Darla Mack

I've become a big fan of the S60 browser on the newer S60 3rd edition devices.  But I've run into a bit of an issue when it comes to loading the Web Feeds.  Unlike the Web and Services feature the Web Feeds lack the option to select an access point, or simply have the phone be polite enough to ask you which access point you would like to use.   If you have selected the option to ask while using Web or Services it does that meaning that there is no default access point selected.  But the Web Feeds just randomly picks an access point and in my case its never the correct one.

Being one of those users that routinely switch sim cards, could I possibly be confusing my phone?

I've come across another user (N80) on the Nokia Discussion Boards with the same issue, so now I can safely say that I'm not the only person, but it seems that the simple solution is to just omit using the option to 'always ask' and just chose a default access point. 

I'm not going to say that this is just a multi-sim card user issue because it does the same thing if you are browsing using Wifi. 

Hey experts... is there any fix for this?

I hadn't thought about that before, but I think it's a real issue. I think Nokia should improve the default selection process by allowing you to have a set a priority for each access point. So, for example, if WiFi is available, it automatically chooses that, if not, it chooses your EDGE service, if that's not availble then your GPRS service, etc.
