If you go into options >> browser config, you will see a place where you can change the homepage address.

You have to go to your Browser Bookmarks first. Hit the wheel and select options. Once there enter browser config. and change the home page address to whatever site you want. You can also edit that bookmark to reflect the new site name ...

Must be a 'T mobile' peculiarity, as I can highlight their home page in a way that suggests remove/change is possble,
but actually deleting it, is not possible dammit...

I'm on T-Mobile, and mine works just as waine06 describes - no problem.

Do not go into your application info or your advanced options. Do not go into T-Zones. Click your internet browser icon and your bookmarks should appear. If a web page appears, hit your escape key until you get back to bookmarks. From there follow the instructions on my previous post.

Default Hmmm,

Well I've tried that thanks, but it still won't have it.

For the record, when I hit the escape, it reverts to 'browser config'
and
from there,


well you know the rest
as above

perhaps its mopre precisesly a UK 'T mobile' thing
pity as I'd like it to go directly to Google or something still...

Default same issue for me

T-Mobile UK + BB8700
I think thats setup and locked so we always have to go through T-Mobile page.
I would also like to change the T-Mobile logo on the main screen.
only solution:another browser...
I have tried OPERA but the navigation is not good, too many hit on the wheel are required.
Moreover when you open a link from an email that goes through T-Mobile main browser again...
any solution?
thanks

Hey Rich? all you have to do is:

1. Open up te browser
2. Select Options
3. Select Browser Configurtion
4. Scroll to the bottom
5. Change the Home page Address.

Make sure you Browser Configuration (at the very top) is set to Internet Browser

Thatr should do the trick
