instead of being called 'Internet Browser' it is now called just Browser. I went to 'show all icons' to make sure a second browser is not there and just hidden and there really is just the one browser (aside from the wap browser from my carrier as well). How do I know if that browser is the original Internet Browser that was on my BB prior to getting hosted BES or if it is the hosted BES one? I set my 'default browser' under options to be the Internet Browser and not the hosted BES browser - does this mean when I start up the browser I am using the Internet Browser and not the hosted BES one?
I hate that too! Unfortunately, I don't know if there's any easy way to tell which Browser you're using.
I do know that the BlackBerry Browser routes through the BES (I assume if you're a BIS user, you won't even have that option), and the WAP browser routes through your Provider's network (at least with Cingular/AT&T).
You set the default browser under ( Settings/Tools -->
) Options --> Advanced Options --> Browser
If you create a bookmark, you can specify which browser the bookmark uses.
If you're entering a URL with the Go To
menu option, you can Click the Menu button and select Change Browser
to insure you're using the one you want.
Let me know if you ever find the BlackBerry Browser icon!
