    First off, Hi everybody!
    Sorry if this is weirdly written or formatted... I'm in the Himalayan foothills, posting from my HTC Legend.

    The issue is that whilst I can browse seemingly normally with Opera Mini... I can't connect with the standard Android browser or with Dolphin. They just hang.
    My connection is with a company called Aircel.
    And I have no idea why Opera connects, As well as the Android mail app and even the software update check, but other browsers, nope. Nada.

    It wouldn't be an issue, but Opera doesn't allow me access to some key sites (banking, etc): due to how they are formatted or what-not.

    Note: the Android browser worked fine before I got this new connection with Aircel (previously with AirTel india).

    Info:
    2.1-update1
    Webkit 3.1
    2.10.178.1 CL211993 release-keys

    I am thinking there is some odd setting which Opera is dealing with which the other browsers don't like.

    Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.

    Extra info:
    All apps work perfectly except browsers.

    Skype, Talk, Market, Maps are all working normally.
    Opera works.
    Android, xscope, dolphin browser don't

    Why aren't browsers seeing the connection that the apps are?

    ... also, might it have something to do with done mobile phone companies using a proxy in the APN configuration... Would that explain why some browsers and apps can see the connection?
    Is there a way of forcing the android browser to accept a connection if this type?
