I heard Nextel will be upgrading BWC to include the Blackberry Browser as well.

So is this different than the "BlackBerry Browser" that came with my 7520?

I've only had the 7520 for a week and I do have a BES Server in the corporate environment, so I'm not sure if that plays a part in why it is installed.

As a BES user you have a full HTML browser - Blackberry browser. It is part of the MDS service. I have never used the reqwireless browser, I'm a BES user myself. I assume they are all similar.

I'm a BWC user and I already have the BB browser on my Nextel 7520. Can't explain why. It just showed up one day after I selected send service book. I wasted money when I paid 29.99 for reqwireless webviewer.

Most carriers block the BB Browser if you don't have BES. It's crazy, they want you to pay all this extra money to access it. I get the same results with webviewer, besides the ability to access some secured sites (ie. banks).

Cool

I just looked at my Service Book on my 7520, and it's popped up there too. I had checked a few days ago and it wasn't.

I also have an entry that says "Provisioning." I'll bet anything they are trying to get as many Service Books provisioned correctly before the release on the first as they can.

I imagine that the "provisioning" book has something to do with blocking the Blackberry Browser from being accessed until it's officially deployed.

It is turning interesting indeed.... Glad to see that RIM and Nextel take care of their Blackberry users.

Now, if us Nextel guys could just get our hands on ringtones like the 71xxer's.

Oh, also...

It's not really crazy - it just eats up a lot more bandwidth.

That's why all of us are worrying that they're going to add a monthly charger for access to it, or hike the rates, or something...

I've had it listed in my handheld under service book from day one. However, on my BWC I only have the single service book to send down. Is it possible to request the service book from the handheld? This is driving me crazy!!!
