    No Web Browser Icon

    Advertisement



    I can't locate the browser icon (globe). I have the data services in my plan, and after setting up my email, soon the icon changed into a message with a smaller globe. No where can i find the browser. I don't know if I should sign out of my email or even how to do that.

    jpodo - you can register your handheld as many times as you want and it won't hurt...the globe with an envelope is your WAP browser (one associated with your carrier). the browser you are trying to get back is the bb browser.

    jpodo...you may want to take a look at this thread. You answer may be to re-install your operating system.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    I know you say your plan contains data but I had the same problem on an 8700g a while back. I contacted my carrier and it turned out my apn (access point name) hadn't been provisioned. They fixed it at their end, I pulled out the battery popped it back in and hey presto. If all is fine with your network back up and reinstall the os.

    hmm...ok, that's what i figured

    the DM or Desktop Manager application/software is the application you will use to 'put' bb apps on your bb...its installed on your PC. its completely different than the OS. the OS has to be downloaded and installed on your PC as well...

    Re: No Web Browser Icon

    well, you already downloaded the OS that's what you just downloaded

    then you need to dl DM (sorry, but its gonna be a long download)

    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...E4F82F9F00E7D4

    choose the first one on the list (Desktop Manager 4.2 so 2)

    before you do all this, have you resent your service books? log in to your account (where you set up email) and to the left should be a choice 'service books'. click that and click send service books. let's see if that invokes the browser.
