Of the top of my head may not be working via the Opera broswer as this traffic goes via Opera's platform - as such the traffic is no longer recognisable as a Telecom device thats WAP capable and therefore access is barred.

Damager: Zero facebook fine works on my pre paid XT sim, but not on my post paid XT sim. I've always found this unusual but not worried about it too much. Using Opera 9.7 on an HTC Touch Pro2.

Would be nice though to get an explanation as to why this happens. I'm guessing it's due to the individual settings for each XT mobile number rather than the phone itself. My phone doesnt have a WAP browser yet zero facebook works perfectly with the pre paid sim in it.

What phone are you using that don't have a WAP browser but Zero Facebook is working?

As mentioned I'm using dolphin browser hd on htc desire which isn't WAP.
Zero facebook works fine.

ipearx: Shame doesn't seem to work, I get the error:

Sorry, is only supported by select mobile carriers and is not available from your mobile carrier

I'm using xt prepaid $12 data add-on

It is only available on WAP browsers, You must have a smart phone.

I got the Same error on my iPhone & Palm Treo Pro

you can configure the Palm Treo (Pro) to use the WAP proxy for browsing the internet and getting 0.facebook to work.  probably same deal for iphone.
