Nokia E90 - Browser Limitation

Nokia E90 comes with a built-in browser. The browser itself is nice, it can support images, flash and even you can use mini-map to navigate a big site and zoom to a particular area.

On the other hand, eventhough the browser is nice, apparantly the financial sector did not like Nokia.

I try with
1. http://www.bofa.mobi --> Bank of America Mobile Banking
2. http://www.wf.com --> Wells Fargo Mobile Banking

These 2 websites hates the nokia E90. It will not let E90 to login :(. Browser is not compatible....blahhh...This must have something to do with the user-agent of E90.

I need to hunt a way whether its possible to change this. (Use Internet Explorer user agent :P ).

For now, my Windows Mobile 2003 SE (O2 XDA IIi) is still a winner since it can browse the 2 websites without having any problem.

So if you are thinking to buy Nokia E90, just make sure you do not need to surf those 2 websites :P. At least for now until the bank decides to support it.

Those sites probably checks that is there mention of Symbian or Nokia or Series 60 in user agent and therefore won't let the E90 browser log in or the site has list of known procuts in their service and therefore doesn't let the E90 load the correct page. If we think for example maps.google.com it acts same way. It doesn't allow to load the full service instead the site will redirect to useless mobile version.

Hi I'm not sure if I have the same problem but whenever I try to login to login.poems.com.sg it shows a JVM required to be installed message. Other websites no problem.

Note: my Nokia 6680 has no such problem, so it doesn't sound like a Symbian problem

You can use http://mobile.poems.com.sg from E90. It works.

But the catch is you will need to use telebroker pin. Its not the same pin that you are using with the http://login.poems.com.sg

If you forgot your telebroker pin. Call your broker and ask him to resend or reset your telebroker pin.
