Default Blackberry Browser - Switch from BES to TCP?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB 7510 with Nextel. I have the Blackberry Browser which I use to surf web sites, but all the traffic goes thru the BES server. I don't want my employer tracking my websites. Is it possible for the browser to directly contact the sites using the TCP/IP stack? If so, what do I need to do to set this up. Thanks.

You need the service book entry for that. I's a separate icon. I have the BES BlackBerry Browser and the non-BES Internet Browser icons on my BlackBerry 7280 on Rogers.

Unfortunately, 7510 users cannot do this - Nextel has not permitted this service book for this model. But you can download Reqwireless Webviewer (about $29.95) to get this functionality. Or try to insist on a 7520, as Nextel does permit the browser for non-BES users.
