ok, cleared things up. browser is back after talking to customer service, they had to send a few things over but the browser is back now.
also, i don't know what i was smoking, but I am clear now that the pre-installed AOL IM uses your SMS so if you don't have unlimted SMS, don't use it. I'm sure you all already knew that since it's been covered here many times.
ok, back to your regularly schedule program.
