Default URL on Homepage?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to get a URL link on the homepage? A client would like a URL to his private GMail webpage so he can check it faster than going to the web browser and *than* having to go to the favorites.

He's using BES and his Gmail hosts emails that cannot be sent to his BES address..

In Browser Options, select Browser Configuration. The top item is "Home Page Address". The second option is Start Page, select "Homepage". Then all he needs to do is start the Browser.

You can search the forums, there was a developer in beta on a program that would create an icon on the BB which you could use a URL. Then all you would have to do is select the icon from the screen. I never tried it, so not sure how well it worked.

I am not able to toggle any values for that setting on my 7520. Any ideas?
