Up until about Sept. 12, 2008, I had no problem with the Bank of America Mobile banking website. However, since that date, I cannot connect to the site at all. All I get is "Connection Failed".
Someone please help!~
Frustrated Instinct user!~
It was working fine in Standard mode and recently it just stopped working. I have tried restarting the phone and everything. Still can't get it to work!~
Yes, I can access other sites fine (CNN, MLB.com, Weather.com, etc.) in standard mode and mobile mode. Bank of America is the only one that I can't. If I take it to the store, can they exchange it for an Instinct that actually works??? Especially if it works on their phone down at the store....
Only message I get is "CONNECTION FAILED". Nothing else.
What state are you in I understand BFA has Blocked Some States with the Service. WA was one of them But to be back Soon.
You may want to call Customer Service of BFA
Ok, People this is the instinct browser we are talking about.
It does not work. It works almost ok when you get the phone and over time (weeks) degrades to nothing working including icons around the browser .
That is why most people can't stand the browser and what the keyboard fix to load opera.
On the other hand there is a "fix" from sprint on the 17th that MIGHT fix something or everything, or break something else.
So live with it at least till the 17th.

I am in Maryland. After posting this to the forum yesterday, within an hour or so, I was able to access Bank of America again. However, people are correct and the browser is virtually worthless. How is Sprint going to release a phone that is clearly "supposed" to be one of their best products and not take care of the software/hardware problems.
Further, without Flash, I would consider the browser to not be fully functional. Especially when every popular website uses some Flash somewhere, whether it's menu's, video's, introductions, etc.
Does anyone know the technical reason or business reason why Flash was not considered?
Someone please correct me, but I don't think many phones have flash. My BB Curve doesn't have it. . . . . anyone know if there are a lot of phones that use flash?
There are very very few phones that use Flash. Even the iPhone doesn't so you don't get the "full web" there either. Then again, you are using a PHONE, not your "full desktop" so there are some tradeoffs to be made. I think Flash is left off phones due to memory considerations, but perhaps there are some other reasons that I am unaware of too.
I'm sure at some point Flash will be widely available on mobile devices and we will all have near desktop like experiences with our phones that display projected images onto a wall allowing us to work anywhere (that's dark enough), but that day is not here quite yet.
