Yeah right. The Nextel representative doesn't know what he is talking about. Nextel can have the Internet Browser only on the following models: 7510 (requires at least 4.0.2 handheld software), 7520 and 7100i. If you have another model it won't work.
If anyone is having problems getting the icon to appear on the BB, check this link to make sure you have the service books. http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgec...?nodeid=787076
If you are not getting the service books, your service for the browser is not active, your not running latest handheld code or it's not supported by your model. Here is a model list for some other carriers.
T-Mobile: 7100, 7290, 8700
Cingular: Any model running at least 4.0.2 handheld software
Verizon: Any model
