Default Service books and browsers

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Cingular 7290 and have the Cingular Browser on my main screen. I have the Cingular OS4 with BlackBerry Browser 4.0 installed as well, but I cannot get to the BlackBerry browser. When I look at my service books, I see books for both the Cingular Browser and the BB Browser. I'm wondering if I delete the Cingular Browser service book, will that allow the BB Browser to show up? And if it screws things up, resending the service books from BWC should fix it, right? Thanks!

BlackBerry Browser is a browser for BES users. Are you sure you're not referring to the "Internet Browser"

I have three RIM browser icons on my Rogers 7280:

BlackBerry Browser - The browser for BES
Internet Browser - The browser for BWC
WAP Browser - The browser for WAP

I'm quite certain. The Service Book entry says "BlackBerry Browser [BrowserConfig]" and I remember checking BlackBerry Browser when I did the OS4 uprade. It's on there, but I can't seem to use it.

I went ahead and deleted the Cingular Browser book, and sure enough the Cingular Browser disappeared but no BB Browser icon showed up. So I've tried clicking Resend Service Books 3 times now in the BWC and nothing's showing up. So now I have no browser. :(

Try going to Settings-Host Routing Table-click Trackwheel, then Register Now.

I don't believe Cingular offers the Internet Browsing Service by default on BlackBerry Web Client accounts....to quote one of Marks FAQ's...

Quote:
Cingular works now, though you may have to call Cingular to make sure that you ask for the "Data Connect" plan added in addition to your existing "BlackBerry Unlimited Data". Both data plans are required simultaneously. Once this is done, you will have several additional line items that show up on your Cingular bill.
If you are not sure if you have it, you can log into your Web Client account, and under profiles at the very bottom will be a second button to send a service book. Alternatively, you can look on the handheld itself. If you go into options -> service book, you are looking for an entry with [IPPP]...usually either "BlackBerry Internet Browsing Service [IPPP]" or "IPPP for BIBS [IPPP]"

OK, I don't have those things (the second button in BWC or the IPPP service book), but I have no problem browsing the web through my Cingular browser (which in many respects seems VERY similar to the BB web browser) using the TCP settings found in that big thread on the subject. I guess I don't understand what the difference is between what I have and the "BlackBerry Internet Browsing Service".

Same here. It appears that the browser Cingular provides is capable of just about any html website. It has the settings for "Flash/SVG" and "Javascript" and can go to those sites as well. The only problem I have had is accessing the color mobile.blackberry.com website -- I only get the B&W version.
