How do you change the homepage for Opera Mini?

I’m using the Opera Mini browser. How do you change the homepage?

Simply press and hold on the bookmarks you want to change, and you should see a manu popping up that says clear or edit - pick accordingly :)

You can't. The page with the speed dial shortcuts IS the homepage. On some handsets - depending on OS etc - you can type "opera:config" into the address bar to access additional settings (no http://www. or http... Just: opera:config). You can check if it let's set a specific homepage. But afaik that only works on some winmo handsets.
I prefer no homepage, anyway. Sometimes I just open the browser to find a bookmark or saved page - why start a connection and go to some site I mightn't need just then? ;)

There are set bookmarks in there already though. I don't know how to get rid of them. Like it has BBC news and stuff

When you put your finger/cursor on one of the speed dial icons and hold it for a cpl of seconds, you get the option to delete that shortcut or edit it. In edit you can then either enter a site's name and URL or pick one of your bookmarks. You can also delete all speeddials if you like it neat.
The best feature is Opera synch (in settings)!!! If you use the Opera desktop browser on your PC or Mac, you can sync all your bookmarks, speed dials, saved pages and notes with opera mini. It's very useful when you have to reinstall opera mini on a new phone. You never have to enter all your bookmarks manually again ;)
Plus: Opera beats Internet Explorer :p

No can do in Opera Mini.
It's 2 seconds of your life to click the shortcut tile for the page you want to open. I know...tragedy :(
See the positive: what if you open OM to visit another page, but, oh, no, it opens http://www.myfavouritpageonanyotherday.con first...

Well, some versions of Opera Mobile let you set an actual homepage rather than the tiles. To do that go to Power Settings =>>> in the browser's address bar type opera:config (no spaces)
The power settings page will open with all sorts of extras ;)
