Bolt browser discontinued for Android, BlackBerry and Java Platforms



I was shocked a few days back to discover that my Bolt browser was popping out some strange message while I was trying to connect to the internet with it, at first I thought there was some mistake I made in my network settings, so I rechecked and also Tested other Apps and they were all working fine except for BOLT browser.
So, I decided to take a visit to their Official website only to Discover that the all time Mobile Browser had been Officially Shut down due to some sort of Economical issues (reasons best known to them).
The photo below was exactly what I saw on the site.

More news reports came up from the Internet saying, the free version of third-party mobile web browser, Bolt has been pulled out from all app stores. Thus the free version of Bolt browser is not now available on the Android Market or BlackBerry app world. Even its Java version is not available.
"The free BOLT mobile browsing service will be discontinued. Unfortunately, the economic circumstances prevent us from running a free service going forward. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your loyalty and support," a post on the browser's website read.
Bitstream has also not indicated if a paid version of the mobile browser can be expected any time soon.
Bitstream developed Bolt browser promised full desktop browser style experience on the mobile web with faster page loads and split-screen view. ed Bolt browser promised full desktop browser style experience on the mobile web with faster page loads and split-screen view.


The browser was one of those several free-to-use mobile web browsers with its own distinct set of features such as the split-screen view, desktop-style web page layout, faster load times with data compression, audio/video streaming and even widget support to anchor social networks — Twitter and Facebook.
Several other free to use mobile browsers such as  Opera, Firefox, Skyfire, Dolphin HD and UC Mobilecontinue to exist for one or more mobile platforms.
Good bye for now Bolt, I was also a fan, I will miss you. :(

Default Configuration Settings for all Mobile Networks in Nigeria

:) Hi Dear Readers in Nigeria and all over the world. I was busy trying to get some *new* things done offline but thank heavens I'm back. This time I'm giving us something like an ORIENTATION to configuring your Phone browsers by yourselves. Take it or Leave it we all need this Post.
MAJOR REASONS are your operator may not be quick to respond OR may not be able to Automatically Provide you with Settings on your fone via SMS especially if its a New model or not a Popular Phone Brand (e.g Nokia) in Nigeria. You don't have to Worry anymore coz You can set it up Manually and easily, just Locate the web browser settings and enter the below Settings where applicable *depending on the Network operator you use from those I listed below*
Let's Go!

Airtel UnLimited Browsing Package+

airtel-new-logo.jpg
Airtel Nigeria has always been giving us Real tough time in cases of FBT. This is because they have one of the Strongest Built Firewalls in my country. Making it uneasy for hackers to byPass via Proxies or whatever method they can use to get in and browse for free. So I came up with this, its been around for a while, few people are already using it and is also been advertised on radio for some time now (but NOT all of us especially most internet users listen to Radio right? :)
 DO THE BELOW AND START SURFING FAST with SATISFACTION
NOTICE=>
ITS STRICTLY MIDNIGHT THINGS

  1. Migrate to Airtel big family by dialing *447#, if you are already on the plan don't bother migrating
  2. After migration,just make sure you make atleast one minute call to any network between the hours of {8am to 11am} then you are qualified for the 4mb that will be given between the hours of midnight calls.
  3. Here is the main trick "you can exceed the 4mb given." meaning You can Download anything you want, yet your credit will still be intact (Between 12.30AM - 4.30AM)

~TIP~
laptop_computer_flipped_open_0515-0909-2 This is an Opportunity for you, P.C owners (laptop/desktop) to Flex. All you have to do is insert your Airtel SIM into your Modem, connect, and start Browsing Free and Fast!!!
Remember, anytime outside 4:30am, you will be charged for browsing hence your credit in your account balance will be deducted.
