dirgas, Thanks bunches! i tried that, even went in and installed older versions of mini opera with same end result. Beginning to think this may be a "new" glitch of sorts between outlook.com and mini opera because everything was working fine until I got that auto Text message from Net 10 telling me a newer version was available for my phone...7.1. The older versions of mini opera are acting in the same manner now, where before using 7.1 I was able to do just fine. sigh....
