    First -- I did my homework and did a search of the Forums and read every thread on Blackberries and mobile devices. So please don't send me links to those threads unless I clearly overlooked the answer to this question.

    I can connect to mobile.redhotpawn.com on my BlackBerry and I can see my games and the board just fine. But for the life of me I don't see how to select pieces and move them! I have JavaScript enabled.

    I can't be the only BlackBerry user in the world on RHP. Anybody out there with some advice as to what I'm failing to figure out that is is obvious to everyone else?

    I'm on a BB Curve if that makes any difference. Opera Mini and Opera Mobile aren't supported on this device, so that isn't a help.

    Thanks in advance,
    qbit

    you know how to select and draw things on other sites?
    and the keys for that dont work on RHP site?

    could try and ask for data support on the customer service from your provider. but since you do get the connection i doubt they can really help you..

    Navigating the site works fine. I can scroll from link to link and click. I've tried "selecting" the board and clicking on it, but it doesn't seem like it does anything. Like I said, I can't be the only BB user on RHP!

    I also wanted to use RHP on my blackberry but don't even see the board, I see all the rest of the site, but not the actual game... I am new to the site, but had hoped to be able to use BB to move... So can anyone help us????

    I am also having problems with my Blackberry.

    I can select the individual pieces on the board, but have not yet figured out how to move them.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    similar situation for me, I do not even see the board properly, it is shown for a few seconds while the page builts up, and then it is somehow deformed - any idea?

    Buy an inexpensive Chess program for your Blackberry that will recognize PGN format. Have the red hot pawn send your games to you by email in PGN format and paste or load them into your chess program. That is what I had to do to use my Treo 755p. I am using Chess Tiger Software.

    Opera Mini -- this turned out to be the only solution.

    First I tried upgrading my Curve 8300's Blackberry OS to 4.5. The browser for that was better -- I could finally select a piece! But no go. I couldn't move it after selecting it.

    Installed Opera Mini, works great. Much better browser anyway.
