Ad.month.doubleclick.net that keeps stalling my blackberry. I mentioned I suspected this in a post I made in the suggestions thread, after having to do the third battery pull of the day I checked my history and saw the address.

I have to warn you that this may be more about troubleshooting and helping each other. I'll certainly pass on problem reports but our support staff is finite, and I don't think it's possible to make the site universally accessible on all devices. And problems that affect large numbers of users are always going to be a higher priority.
Plus, I can't test most of these myself. I'm going to pull some posts from Tech Issues thread over here that had some suggestions & problems in a few minutes.

The last one is kind of in-between since it's an ad issue too, but I want to see if we can confirm if it's an ad issue specific to blackberries/handhelds or not, so I moved it over here.
I think over the holidays when I have a little more time I may see about setting up a poll or two -- I think it might help prioritize some problems if we can determine how many people currently look at TWoP on a handheld -- and also how many would, except it's too hard to deal with. We did do some surveys about how people accessed the site but it's been a while, and things have probably changed significantly. I can't promise anything but if you're reading this and going, "I can't add anything helpful, but yeah, I have that problem too," it is worth keeping an eye on this thread. Thanks, all.

I guess I don't actually have a solution since it is probably is specific to RW. You may have to read those early seasons on a PC, sorry!

This is a great idea. I recently upgraded to the Blackberry 8900 and many of the issues I had with my previous phone are gone. The one remaining issues is the pages sometime squish together at the top. If a mobile version is on the way please let it be fully functional and not limited like Bravo's mobile site is.
I have no idea how complicated this might be to execute, but is there any chance of developing a mobile version of the site or even an iPhone app?

THIS! Seeing how I usually catch up on my TV shows on my (5th gen) iPod, a mobile version of the recaps and forums to read on my Palm Treo would be the other gift that keeps on giving, since I get the same error someone posted before: Page is too big to display (or something of the sort).

It's certainly cumbersome, but it works, and is better than before the update, when they couldn't be read at all.

FYI I'm doing the same thing on the BB 8900. Copy and paste into a blank email and then discard.
I haven't found a way to clear them, but I found a clumsy work-around, which is better than before. Assuming you have installed the 3.0 software update, you can tap and hold on a spoiler-barred section to bring up the copy/paste function. Adjust the borders to include everything you want to unspoil (the entire page if you like), and then Copy. Now open up Notes or a new email (any app that will allow you to paste into it). Double-tap to bring up Paste, and you will be able to see whatever you copied without the spoiler bars.

When you go to the main page, there are only 5 items listed. These seem to be recaplets and blog items. Any way more items could be added? This could get especially troublesome when fall tv kicks off and new items are posted multiple times a day.
I clicked on the Weeds item, thinking it would be the recap that was posted yesterday. However, it was just the recaplet published on Tuesday, even though it had yesterday's date.
When I clicked on Shows, it only listed 10 of the current shows on the page. Yet again, could more items be added?
I clicked on Big Brother from the Shows page. It, again, lists 5 items with no way to go further back. Also, these weren't the most recent 5 BB weecaps. I wasn't fully expecting the one for last night since it wasn't on the main page yet. But the one for Tuesday night wasn't on the list either. The first item listed was published on 8/3.
It seems to be headed in the right direction. There are just a few things that would make it more user-friendly. Honestly, the regular site on the BlackBerry isn't so bad if it wasn't for the giant blocks of cheese that are always up and ads didn't take so long to load.

*It crashes on launch if I don't have a strong connection. It also has crashed several times just randomly, but I know first gen aps tend to be buggy.
*I know there are only a few recaps for each show, and I'm sure this is not the place to whine about them being out of date, but it also seems to be inconsistent as to whether they are listed by date or alphabetically--and it doesn't seem like I can re-order them as I choose.
*Same applies to the blogs--a "going through channels" from last week is on top, followed by a more recent one, and so on. It's neither alphabetical nor date order, as far as I can tell. Top to bottom right now it's 1/26, 1/27, 1/25, week preview.
This is not a tech issue but rather a request--I'd just love a mobile version of the forums, which I'm sure is hard. I check them from my iphone using the regular browser all the time, and dream of a smooth mobile version some day. I'd also love more regular updates and more older recaps, but that's just 'cause I'm greedy. I'm sure there are technical reasons why that's hard or expensive.

Could an RSS feed be used somehow to get around problems? I use Google Reader and have no trouble reading anything on the subscription list on the phone, but those are blogs (i.e., specific articles) rather than forums.
I tried some link I found a long time ago about a lofi version
which seemed promising but didn't seem to work quite right for me. Is that a step in the right direction, or is a mobile-optimized site the only answer? And not just an iPhone app, please....
