When the default browser configuration is specified as Internet Browser or BlackBerry Browser, the browser will automatically switch depending on how the BlackBerry smartphone is connected (for example, the Wi-Fi Browser will automatically be used if the BlackBerry smartphone connects successfully to a Wi-Fi network). If the default browser is set to Wi-Fi Browser or Hotspot Browser, it will only browse with a Wi-Fi connection.

To change the default browser configuration to Internet Browser or BlackBerry Browser. To perform this, complete the following steps:
From the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone, go to Options > Advanced Options > Browser.
Change the value of the field Default browser configuration to Internet Browser or BlackBerry Browser.
Open the menu and click Save.

Automatic Wi-Fi Selection Mode is the default mode for BlackBerry smartphones. Automatic Wi-Fi Selection Mode allows the BlackBerry smartphone to switch automatically to an appropriate Wi-Fi network when the BlackBerry smartphone user moves through Wi-Fi coverage areas. The BlackBerry smartphone selects Wi-Fi networks based on the order on the Saved Wi-Fi Profiles list.

Manual Wi-Fi Selection Mode allows the BlackBerry smartphone user to select the Wi-Fi networks to which the BlackBerry smartphone will attempt to connect.





To switch between automatic and manual Wi-Fi Selection Mode, complete the following steps:

In Options, click Wi-Fi Connections.
Highlight the Wi-Fi Selection Mode field.
Press the Menu key.
From the Wi-Fi Connections menu, click Change Option.
Click a Wi-Fi Selection Mode.
Press the Menu key.
From the Wi-Fi Connections menu, click Save to change the Wi-Fi Selection Mode.
