    Unfortunately you can't at this time. You can try using Opera Mini though.

    Opera MINI, is IMO, is the best browser available for your BB. go to: www.operamini.com

    There is however a petition somewhere on this forum to get firefox to make a compatible browser for blackberries. You should sign it if you are interested.

    The petition has been there for a while so I don't think they will be making a firefox browser for a bb anytime soon unless they are working on it right now. A firefox browser would be very nice to have though so I am hoping they will develop one soon. Also what I would like to have is a streaming video and audio browser (if possible). This would be even better but most likely won't happen.

    Anyway thats just my .02 cents,

    True, I actually emailed the guy that created minimo and asked him about making it for BB. Now he either completely disregarded my email as junk or it got lost in the hundreds of other similar emails, but I haven't heard back either way lol.

    And is it possible to download the BB browser somewhere, or to unlock it in my phone?

    Do you have a Data Plan? What is your default browser now? The BB browser comes in as a service book.

    Try going to Options>Advanced Options>Host Routing Table>Menu>"Register Now"

    I don't have the BB browser on my Pearl, it seems to be locked, I did the register now thing 3 days ago but nothing came... It says to call my phone priovider but they won't give me the browser until I pay for it... I won't I already pay to have the internet, I won't pay to have a browser! Operamini is working but it's limited as it's not the default browser

    Makomako, if you are signed up for a Blackberry data plan, you should have a BB Browser. Try sending your service books one more time and then do a battery pull reset to see if that brings it up.
