I've read about the differences between the blackberry browser, the internet browser and the hotspot browser. My question is: how do you set priority of wifi over data network? Also, if wifi is being used doesn't it auto-default to hotspot browser?

I'm sitting on a 20mb Fios connection and haven't really noticed a faster browsing experience.

blackberry browser usualyy shows when on a BES.
internet browser uses wi-fi when on, data network when off.
hotpost browser uses only wi-fi (mobile network if off).

No, the browser is set at whatever default you set it to, it doesnt change.

So if it's set to thge BES browser and I'm in a hotspot it won't use that hotspot for data?

I dont know about about Blackberry Browser.
I never had Blackberry browser.

Setting the default to internet browser it will use wi-fi when wi-fi in on, and the icon is white.
You can tell because it shows above the browser what connection its using.
If you see nothing, press U while in browser.

Thanks. Seems to be working now that I changed it to Internet Browser. Two other oddities that I have noticed on the curve 2:

1. Facebook 1.7 runs extremely slow - even on a wifi connection.

2. Google Maps 3.2.1 has my location (within 10 meters) as 60 miles away from my house.....I dont get why this would happen as the device is brand new and has never even been in the location that it says it has.

2. although it seems like its device problem, google maps is wrong anyway.
near my house it has a canal and rail line going through a residential area about 500 meters from where it should be.

Don't remember if the 8530 has GPS but if not using GPS, Google maps uses surrounding cell towers to determine your location. Accuracy depends on your area and the concentration of nearby cell towers. The more towers nearby, the more accurate the location will be.
