Why is Opera Mini not opening on my Samsung Galaxy Y when connected to WiFi?

Manish Parmar May 26, 2013

I have a Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360 with Android version 2.3.6. I have a WiFI connection in my house.

Whenever I try to open Opera Mini with WiFi, it does not open and keeps on loading. Whereas if I recharge my SIM for the data usage (Internet) and open Opera Mini, it opens normally.

Also, the default web browser of the phone works in both cases, i.e. with WiFi and normal internet recharge.

Are there any specific reasons for it? Or is it like WiFi doesn’t support Opera for my phone?

    perhaps Settings > Applications > Browser > Clear Data, cache??? (this will delete any bookmarks, history)

    Cannot access any website with Opera Mini 7.1

    You propably have Opera Mini as part of your SIM contract, as such it is required to connect to a specific server, which might need a dedicated APN, and isnĀ“t reachable by WiFi.
