Default Getting rid of the browser trackball pointer?

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry if this is a simple question. I tried search and playing around w/the settings for awhile and can't find the answer.

I just switch from an 8320 to a 8900. The new phone looks and works great. The only little annoyance I have is that when I browse webpages, it only navigates via the trackball pointer. On my 8320, I could scroll up and down, going only from hyperlink to hyperlink basically. Is this possible on the 8900?

Thanks

I see that option to uncheck the enable cursor on my 8320 browser, but not on the 8900. Did they remove this option permanently?

Not sure. I assumed it would be the same.

Yeah, I like the pointer anyhow. More freedom of moving around a page.
