So, here's what I'm finding so far.

1. Browser start page google search goes to full Google page, not mobile site, so speed is much slower for a search from the start page.

2. Text entry fields - just mving the pointer to the field brought up text cursor on the curve. On my tour, I have to click in the field before I can enter something.

3. Web buttons don't change when the pointer is hovered over them.

Any thoughts?

I notice the same thing with mine regarding Google. How irritating.

I also wish there was a way to turn the cursor OFF, like I could with my Curve. I hate the cursor.

I think you should be able to change the homepage to the mobile google page yes? Try using this:

Google Mobile

Weird, I have not had that problem with Google. It always comes up as the mobile site.

That works for going to the google mobile page on it's own, but I use the start page as my browser start page. That's the page with the web address bar at the top, then google search bar, then my five most recently visited bookmarks, then history. I want to type a search there and have it return results in mobile google, but it goes to full google right now.

The work around is to load that page and then set the homepage to use the 'current' webpage. It's weird you cannot enter homepage urls, only using loaded pages.

That's not really the issue though. I want it to search mobile.google.com right from the start page.

Is there any way to load a page on the browser and have it formated like the curve? So that I dont have to keep zooming in and out.
