Thanks Penguin and all -- but this is my personal blackberry and I don't think there is a BES here at my office, though I do receive my office emails on the blackberry. It is a very small office, but I will definitely ask the part-timer who manages the network here and see if she did anything to the MDS service (I'll look that one up ;>) I did ask other Verizon Wireless users who work in this office, and none of them have had browser problems.
I've been using blackberries for nearly six years and this is the first time I've run into this kind of problem, especially for such a long time.
P.S. I've been a member of this Forum since 2005 -- any idea why I'm identified as "New Member" in my post (and also as "Invisible")? It used to say "Hooked on my BB" under my name. Hmmm, there's probably another place I should post that particular question.
Thanks again -- this is a great community!
