    A BIG thank you, lpas304!! I almost went crazy trying to figure out what was wrong with my Avantgosync, as it wouldn't work even after I uninstalled, reinstalled AvantGo and even hard reset my Visor!

    However, as soon as I switched the port to 443, it worked just fine. Any ideas on why we had to switch the port?

    Oh yeah, how come my synced pages are not in 16-bit colour? I checked through the preferences and found that there definitely is an option to view pages in 16-bit colour when you are doing online browsing, so how come offline browsing isn't in 16-bit colour? Or am I once again missing something?

    Oh I'm sorry -- AvantGo 4.0 IS in 16-bit colour. What happens is that AvantGo will switch to 16-bit colour mode ONLY when there is a picture present.

    When pages contain only text (even with colour banners or headings) it will still only come out with 256 colours only.

    I just checked my Joke a Day (Mature) pages and the pictures are definitely in 16-bit colour! Yay!!

    The wireless features look interesting, but so far I'm otherwise unimpressed by the new client... it runs slower than ever on my Prism - I half expect to see an Hourglass pop up when it's loading! And under 'New Features' in the readme.html file they include that MobileLink is now called AG Connect. I wouldn't exactly call that a feature. 16 bit color will be nice when sites like PhotoPoint get around to posting 16 bit images instead of dithered 8 bit images.

    I don't mean to be picky, but I guess I'm just not seeing much in the way of improvement for somebody with a modem/wireless connection now that Browse-it and Blazer are 16-bit capable.

    After toying with it for an hour or so today, it seems to be much faster on my VDx than the previous version was. Perhaps the slowdown on the Prism can be attributed to the 16-bit color (more bits to move)?

    I was able to connect and use many of the My Wireless sites over my StarTAC connection. The only real problem I had was not being able to log in here at VC. It refused to accept my username/password (and, yes, I was using the right password )

    what about ports... does VC have a very strict proxy or firewall?

    Not that I am looking for a message-board answer... just something for you to ponder.

    Tan Kit -- I'm not sure why the port 443 fix worked. I got this info off the AvantGo help page and it said something about problems with firewalls for people syncing at work. Since I had been trying to do the upgrade on my lunch hour at the office, I figured this might be the problem. Luckily it worked--so, as you can see this was a sheer process of trial and error for me! Glad to hear it worked for you too.

    Totally screwed me over.

    I install it, it get's rid of my mail conduit. IT crahses every time I try to sync

    Mail setup doesn't work

    I uninstall everything (even hotsync) and start over with 3.3. It works on the second round of installing/uninstalling.

    SO whatI have is 4 on my Vsr, and 3.3 o nmy desktop.

    And I JUST installed 3.3 yesterday! (to get color avantgo to work)

    I'm not happy

    MarkEagle, yeah I noticed that AvantGo 4.0 seems to be faster than 3.3 as well.

    It does take a little longer to launch on my Prism, but pages actually load faster and generally performance is a little snappier as well.

    I don't know if that's my imagination, but that's what I feel.

    I've just upgraded to v 4.0 build 769, but I don't have the link 'my wireless' on the home page. I've set up 'wireless' on the website (it says it's set for my account) and I've checked 'autoconnect' in preferences, but still no sign of 'my wireless'.

    Another thing is that I don't seem to be able to copy anything to the clipboard or even to a memo.

    I'm beginning to wonder if I've actually 'upgraded' at all

    I had the same problem. I did a Modem Sync from the VDx and the My Wireless link finally appeared. I actually think that the Refresh All Content option did the trick.

    Another thing is that I don't seem to be able to copy anything to the clipboard or even to a memo.
    I, too, had trouble at first thinking I needed to actually select text first (something that can't be done inside of AvantGo). If you just do an Edit, Copy (or :menu:C), it will pop up a window asking "Do you want to save the current document into Memo Pad?". Tap OK and you'll have a memo containing the currently displayed AvantGo page.

    Which is like, almost never. I have 12 pages I routinely synch, and not unusual ones (yahoo, msn, usatoday), and not one of them ever shows any images. What a waste of color capability.

    Well, I DLed 4.0, followed the install program and now any time I try to run it, my VDX crashes. Any guesses? The older version worked fine. I have no springboard installed.

    For those asking about ports, 80 is standard HTTP (web). 443 is SSL or secure connection. If you go into AvantGo Connect in Windows you can have it autodetect your port settings.

    It looks like Avantgo 4©0 suffers from the same infra-red problem as Eudora and Blazer©

    I was unable to use either the EIS or Blazer because they couldn't maintain an IR connection while loading pages© Eudora blames it on the Palm OS, I don't know what Blazer ¥Handspring¤ has to say©Now I can't use AG 4©0 for the same reason©

    Does ayone have a possible explaination? The old version of AvantGo worked perfectly© All of my other IR apps work fine© It's just EIS, Blazer and now Avantgo©

    I had the same problem installing the previous version (and learned my lesson). If you're running any hacks, do a warm reset (or, in official Handspring talk, a System Reset). Then install AvantGo to the Visor and sync. After that, try running it... it should work. If so, do a soft reset and re-enable your hacks. I followed this procedure installing 4.0 and didn't have any trouble.

    After I installed 4.0 verion, I just got "Account Locked" when every time I synced. I cannot get channels to work. I reinstall the older verion, but I got the same result. Could anobody tell me what's wrong and how to solve it?

    I think you did everything correct. I got the same message. It was fined yesterday. I think their server is down. Try at later time or tomorrow.

    Try capturing real web pages instead of just synching to AvantGo-specific channels.

    Also, there are some channels which have pictures -- VisorCentral is one of them (just enable it in your preferences for the VisorCentral mobile channel), Joke a Day (Mature), and one dealing with Space whose name escapes me at the moment.

    A.Yee - were you able to get past the "Account Locked" message? I am still getting it and am unable to sync. Does anyone know what's causing this? Thanks.
