Is it possible to place a browser bookmark as an icon on the home screen? I did that with some of my most used sites on my Motorola phones, but can not figure out if it can be done on my BB (8700g).

You can set the browser icon to open on a homepage. Open the browser, then options, then browser configuration, set the homepage you'd like it to open on, and finally change the start page to home page instead of bookmarks page.

That's about it. There is no way to actually put the icon on the homepage as of yet. That was a good idea if there is one site that you visit more than others.

If you can figure out how to create a browser push (like the Weather Channel browser push available via that would do it...
