Default Best Homepage for 8700?

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone have any recommendations for the best site to set up as your homepage? I am looking for something similar to what my.yahoo.com has, but would be more BB friendly.

Thoughts?

Try this on your 8700 Internet Browser: http://mobile.blackberry.com

Alternatively, try PocketDay or BBToday as a start page. They also allow you to embed weather forecast and stock quote information on the home screen.

I just tried too- the manual says some service providers may not allow that field to be edited. At this point, I'm assuming Cingular has locked it.

It does appear to be locked as you cannot edit or change it.
