Default BlackBerry Browser Search Box

Please Login to Remove!

I have noticed on some Blackberry's that there is a search box on the browser just below the HTTP line.

It shows "Search here" and there is a drop-down listing "Google, Live Search, Wikipedia, Dictionary.com".

Does anyone know where I download this to install on a Blackberry Bold?

It all depends what OS version you have on your BB.

Both devices are Bolds running v4.6.0.266.

I can't see any differences between them!

Any other ideas?

Not that I can see....

The strange thing is that these Blackberry's seem exactly the same and with the same OS....

goto browser configuration. see if you got default search provider. I got 2 of BB bold her running .266 firmware. The one connected with BES got it, the other spare one doesn't. Looks depends on your BES admin...

Thanks for your replies, but they are both on the same BES server... Running 266... One shows the box, one doesn't!

Good news, after a couple of days of some real googling and a little bit of luck I've figured it out (had the same issue)... Just resend your service books to the device without the option and hey presto!

Enjoy!
