What kind of OS does a blackberry have?

Totally unfamiliar with it. I could do some googling if you tell me the model and the OS.

Go to Market Basket and buy some cookies already baked.


Throw those old cookie away - they're probably stale.

endisnighe: I think she said that because she can't post from her regular PC...she is using th BB to post her problem. Remember - she can't post?

dg - what browser do you use?

There should be some sort of settings thing for either your internet or your whole phone. In there you should find something dealing with cookies and history, which it would be good to clear all of that out every once and a while.

I am just guessing though. I don't know much about the blackberry.

Duh, oh well. Yes, need some more info. If you want to, I use CCleaner to clear my cache, cookies, temp internet folder. Nice browser and computer cleaner. If I remember correctly, I think you said OP that you had dial up, just going by memory, could have been you or someone else.

Need info on the browser you are using OP.

LOL. Its not the phone, its my laptoP. I have Windows Explorer 7 still. I try logging in and I get a message from ats saying I don't have cookies. I do too have cookies. I use Norton and they always want me to erase them.
What does having lost my cookies have to do with my trying to log in?

I must be losing more than cookies


Btw posting on a phone is a real pain.

Thanks for the help

And yes I do have dial up still

Norton!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, old joke.

If using firefox double check that in your tools-options-privacy the cookies are accepted. You do not need to accept third party cookies.

As for Norton clearing your cookies, I do not know that antivirus or if it has the firewall too, not familiar. But it should have a place in it that will allow you to keep cookies from certain sites.

Sorry, if this does not help. Not familiar with Norton.

Also, MemoryShock has it right, if the refresh does not work. Try shutting down your browser and then restarting it.

What you're probably seeing is a message saying you must have cookies enabled. If you flush them every time you shut down, you'll likely get that message when you return.

Agreed, refresh/reload page and you'll likely be able to log in. The refresh/reload will show the cookie and you'll be good to go.

So your browser is IE7? dg, shame on you! Get with the 21st century, please!

Anyhoo... give this a shot.


Maybe you just upgraded to the new Internet Explorer 7 or have been using it for awhile, but have experienced trouble logging into some of your favorite web sites.

Well that could be caused by the new cookies permissions set in Internet Explorer 7.

Learn how to enable cookies and set permissions on your favorite web sites to accept cookies!

Follow these simple steps to enable “Cookies” in Internet Explorer 7 for all web sites.

* Open your browser, and select Internet Options from the Tools menu at the top.
* Now on the option screen select the Privacy tab.
* Make sure the slider is not set to “Block All Cookies”.

The best setting is to set the option to “Medium,” then click Apply and then ok to save the changes.

WOW that simple. Thank you very much all of you!
Will do it soon as my husband goes to sleep. I don't want to disturb the snake pit.

not sure if this will help but the os might be the same as yours


Remove cookies from a BlackBerry Curve
1.Step 1
Launch the BlackBerry web browser from the main device menu screen. You will need to have the browser open in order to delete the cookies.

2.Step 2
Push the BlackBerry menu button--the button immediately to the left of the trackball--and open the browser menu. Click "Options." This choice will show you submenus for Browser Configuration, General Properties, Setup Issues and Cache Operations.

3.Step 3
Select "Cache Operations" with the trackball and click. A new screen should open that shows the size of the files in your BlackBerry Curve's content cache, the amount of pushed content that the BlackBerry has sent out and the size of the browser's cookie cache.

4.Step 4
Scroll down to "Cookie Cache" and highlight the button labeled "Clear." Click the button to delete cookies from your BlackBerry Curve. Use the back arrow key--the button immediately to the right of the trackball--to return to the main screen.

hope it helps...but i would think you have a cookie on your blackberry that is blocking access.

I would download and install mozilla firefox, and only use it as your browser. Do not import anything and set it as default. Ensure its icon is on you desktop and affixed to the start menu. Then you can always clear all history under tools, and you are not as virus prone as in explorer, plus can get many add ons, such as download helper, pdfit, and a variety of add ons.

If it wasn't for the games my kids play, I wouldn't even have windows, and I'm 9/10 in linux. But then you have to be somewhat careful, my microphone only has windows drivers apparently, so if I want to use it or the kids, we have to go into windows, which I hate doing.
A usb one would have solved that. If you do look into linux, pclinuxos and mepis are two of the very best and ubuntu is a headache beyond trying to get the codex's and also your monitor's resolution, sure they can be solved, if you want to take a week researching each problem, which I don't. Pclinux works out of the box for most people, and is the best I have ever tried out of many distros. Its free, you can download it, burn it off using a free program. I would never use the windows one, just google "open source iso burner for windows" to get a good one.

And best of all, you don't have to install it to see if it works, it has livecd mode.


Then you can get some really yummy desktop changes if you have 3d video, such as compiz/beryl
