    In the layout prior to this new platform, I was able to register successfully, using a Nokia 5800.

    Last time I tried to log in with my user details, I realised those details were probaly not ported to this new platform.

    Anyway, on trying to re-register, still using my phone, I was not successful this time around.

    Will register when next I am close to a PC.. The mobile friendliness of this new platform would probably be enhanced if it were possible to register by using a mobile device..

    Update: I have now been able to register successfully using a mobile device. My former username was rejected when trying to re-register. Used another username instead..

    EyeBeeKay,

    Thanks for the feedback. So, we take it that the mobile version works on your 5800; right?

    You should be able to login at the Forums with your old details. As a matter of fact, if you have cookies enabled in your browser, if you were logged in at the main site and click through to the forums, you should be automatically logged in there too.

    Thanks again for the time and effort.

    My phone is Sony Ericsson K750i and my browser is bolt (version 1.62). When entered the forum, what my browser loaded was the desktop version though i don’t think this is a problem since i was viewing the desktop version of MobilityNigeria when i logged in.

    I couldn’t try opera mini because Zain has denied me access to their networks with opera mini. I will still try accessing the forum with UCWeb.

    The site loaded perfectly on my nokia e63 but i discovered that each time i close the mobilitynigeria tab on my operamini5 beta 2 browser, i have to sign in to forum again next time i open the site. Previously i am always automatically loged on. I’ve not tried it on my native browser, i hardly use the browser.

    kay123,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    On the login status issue, is anyone else using a non-beta version of Opera Mini facing this?

    Nice work, Chukwudi. Our list is missing about 2 or 3 from yours. We’ll fill in the missing agents.

    Thanks again.

    EyeBeeKay,

    Have you attempted to login to the Forums with your old profile again? Others are not having this issue. As it is, right now, you have two profiles, which isn’t quite good.

    Do try the old profile again, and if it works, we will merge your new profile with the old. Your forum posts under the new profile will then reflect your old profile and all’s good.

    Let us know.

    Alireta, I attempted to login with my old profile (username > EyeBeeKay) and it is now successfully. The other profile is in the name > ibk). Will prefer to maintain ‘EyeBeeKay’..
    Thank you!
