*COPIED FROM ANOTHER THREAD*

*start using the search function*

OK, I had the same situation as you, and FINALLY figured this out.

From the standard homepage, you CANNOT change the homepage in options\browser config.

From many pages, like drudgereport.com, you CANNOT change the homepage.

If you fire up your browser, let it load the crappy standard homepage, and then google "cant change browser home page" without the quotes, and go to this very thread, you have the option to USE CURRENT, or change the home page to whatever you want.

This took me days to figure out, but it finally works for me. Try it out!

Hi mike what I can see is that the options USE CURRENT only is available when the Browser is set to WAP BROWSER and not to INTERNET EXPLORER...
I changed it to WAP BROWSER and finally I was able to change the home page

I actually found an easier way: open the browser, options, browser configuration, scroll down and change the home page address.

I just wanted to say that I followed these instructions from another thread after MANY other attempts. The only thing that worked was doing all of these steps, including changing the font....very weird.

My first step was to go into the browser and then into google. Then menu>options>browser config. I have everything checked off except Support JavaScript. I scrolled down to the bottom and clicked on Use Current. I believe as you back out you are prompted to Save. Other setting are as follows - Show Images: On WML & HTML Pages. Emilation Mode: Blackberry. Start Page: Start Page. Default Search Provider: (should say) Google. Home Page Address: about: start. These are the settings I am running and my browser button goes straight to the Internet Browser every time I hit it. I have no connectivity issues.

If the above steps do not work there is an additional process to add to the above. As soon as you save the Browser Configuration, go directly to General Properties. Change the Default Font Size to any number. Close the browser by clicking options>close but do not use back button to close. You can go back in later and change the font size to whatever you want. I got this last step from another thread dealing with this same issue. Of course I've also done batt pulls and sent service book that could have added to the fix. Good Luck
