    Blazer insists on adding an http:// when I am trying to use Etrade's mobile web site at www.etrade.com

    Because Blazer automatically adds the http://, I can't access the mobile site which doesn't have the http:// Further, Blazer says you can't turn off autocomplete.

    Any ideas for how I might acess www.etrade.com ? Seems prettt silly that this "convienience" function of Blazer makes it difficult to access a web site designed for mobile users.

    http is the protocol being used. A protocol must always be defined, sure your desktop will let you enter www.etrade.com but it's translated into http://www.etrade.com.

    As far as I know blazer only supports the http and https protocols.

    What is the EXACT url to the mobile site you are trying to use, and more importantly is it a mobile WEB site?

    "What is the EXACT url to the mobile site you are trying to use, and more importantly is it a mobile WEB site?"

    Here is what E*Trade's site says regarding wireless access...


    "To visit E*TRADE on your Internet-enabled phone (WAP phone), select your phone's mini-browser and start an Internet session.

    If you subscribe to AT&T Wireless, Verizon or Sprint, you can easily access E*TRADE through the Finance directory.

    On other phones, select Go To or Add URL then enter www.etrade.com."

    I had assumed that the first two sentences referred to access through WAP-enabled phones. Whereas, I was assuming that the third sentence referenced a mobile web site at the URL, "www.etrade.com"

    I can get access via Blazer to Etrade's main site, but because there is a lot of text and graphics, it is both slow to load and hard to read. Therefore, I was assuming that the mobile web site was accessible at the "www.etrade.com" URL. Another reason I was thinking this was the case was that I was able to reach both the main site and the mobile site on my Treo 300, although I don't remember how I got to the mobile site. But what I was thinking today was that the address for the mobile site was, in fact, "www.etrade.com" and I was able to get to that site on my 300 because you could override the autocomplete function in the previous version of Blazer.

    No, the "www.etrade.com" is simply the nice human readable version of a bunch of numbers. It does not identify how to access information. The "http://" identifies how to access the information (use port 80 and the HyperTextTransferProtocol).

    If you omit the protocol most browsers assume http. This is not an "auto-complete" feature as "www.etrade.com" is meaningless without a protocol.

    It looks like etrade is checking the browser client on the homepage and redirecting to the correct version accordingly. Most cell phones are WAP and identify themselves as such. Etrade detects the wap identification and redirects the request to their wap servers.

    Blazer does not identify itself as a WAP browser, which is probably the hickup.

    On a WAP phone can you get the url of the current page? I ask because the main etrade page probably detects a wap browser and redirects to a separate WAP page. It would be the URL of that separate page you need to enter into blazer.

    Also, the "handheld" computer tools etrade references are the old pqa's that I don't believe work on the Treo600.

    I had similar problems accessing wap enabled sites with blazer 3, , scottrade, my local mls, etc. and tried downloading a copy of blazer 2. Works great for the access part, but has begun soft resetting my 600 about once a week. Otherwise works fine. I think i found 2.0 on palmone website.

    Anyone using their 600 to buy/ sell stocks on mobile.scottrade.com?
    I am using Blazer and the sell order looks like it went through but did not execute. Good it didn't in this case because the next day it went up even higher and I had PdaNet and a laptop with me and that did it.
