    We've asked if there is any workaround for the users who use their phone to log on to the forums such as web client or IE client for the Android phone. Unfortunately, there is no workaround so far. The forum team has plan for supporting this but it may need time.

    Sorry for the inconvenience so far.

  • Can you try IE on your device?

    Thanks!

  • I submitted a bug request and to see if we support the Opera Mini browser. You might need to use a different mobile browser.

    Thanks!

  • Rajendra,

    Which mobile OS are you referring here ? If it's windows mobile OS, that should have IE and IE would likely allow you to log on to the forums.

    You might be using android, iOS or blackberry ! ?

    I have an Android based phone, I tried multiple browsers for logging on to Forums but all in vain, Chrome, Opera , firefox for android all fails to log on.

    I finally tried Dolphin for android and I could log on to forums (hurray !!!) Unfortunately, I can't reply with that browser, Cursor doesn't  blink or appear in reply box and text pad on browser doesn't appear at all.

    I also wish if MS could release a Forum App for android ;-))

    Ah, thanks Santosh! Do those browsers work on a non-Android mobile device? Like does Sarafi on an iPhone work?

    Is there IE for Android?

    Thanks!

    Sorry Ed, I didn't receive e-mail alerts for this thread (not sure why) hence, couldn't reply earlier.

    Dolphin browser is available for Android and iOS at present. Opera and Firefox are all available for most of the mobile OS platforms.

    IE is not available for Android yet AFAIK.
