Verizon Default Homepage on MightyMike ROM

Is there anyway to make the Verizon Default Homepage the default homepage on Mighty's ROM? I used that page frequently since it had quick links to my non-popmail Yahoo account (since they charge for popmail) and ESPN. I tried inputting the homepage address into Opera but I assume it runs off of a Verizon core file since it kicks back 'Unable to locate' when I set it as the default Opera page.

Thanks in advance!

That was the original default homepage on my old i760. That one works but the one I am speaking of had the icons for Sports, Mail, News, Weather etc etc. and was setup like the HTC programs window (although it was a webpage).

The complete address is 'wap.vzw.mcore.com/vzwwap/app/today/default.aspx?' and is the HTC TP2 default Opera homepage fresh out of the box from Big Red.

Sweet! Thanks in advance. I'm guessing there is something in the Verizon stock files that kicks this into action because on the stock ROM I would input wap.vzw.mcore.com and hit enter at which time it would kick back the entire address as outlined above. Especially suspicious since 'app/today' is included in the kicked back page address.

Look forward to what, if anything, you can find. Thanks again.

That address redirects to the one I specified above however, the address I entered above is then followed inline by
'error.aspx?errorcode=400&errortext=Bad+Request%2c +Auth+header+not+valid.&insptid='.

When redirected though, Opera does not display the 'unable to locate' page and instead goes to a plain white page.

Strange.

You've been thanked for your efforts and I'll continue to dig on this until I figure it out. Its not even so much that I need it at this point as much as it is WHY it is happening.

Re: Verizon Default Homepage on MightyMike ROM

try it in IE. This is what is on the Elite ROM's default page.

Edit: Just tried it in IS and still get the same error message. So don't know what it is.

Verizon charges for POPmail? Since when?

I've got g-mail, yahoo and Comcast POPmail accounts that are set to update regularly. My phone also syncs with my work Oulook e-mail when plugged in each day.

I've never been charged anything extra doing this using the $29 unlimited e-mail/interned plan on my Samsung i760 or the new TP2.

Maybe your using the phone w/o a data plan? Somehow talked Verizon into WiFi only?

Just curious.

My bad....I think they charge for smtp service. I dont exactly recall what it was they charge (or charged) for since I havent look into it since my i730 which was 3 years ago, so maybe they changed.

Back on topic, I believe the error has something to do with the proxy settings from what i have gathered to this point so I will reflash the stock ROM, check the proxy settings in Opera then go from there.

Its official, today I have flashed more than a pervert in Central Park.
