Bridge Brower cannot open ANY website...but Phone Browser opens up all webstes...

Hi,

 

Running OS 6.0.0.534 on my BB9700 and Bridge is connected to Playbook (.1710). Mail, calendar, todo, memos work fine; but I cannot open up ANY website on the Bridge Browser. The phone browser works fine for all websites.

 

Error Message: "Not authorized to open Http://www.google.com".

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

I turned off Wifi and opened bridge browser and it connected to yahoo, I opened up web page about Royals and then logged in and opened my mail. I thought bridge browser only workded with BES. My carrier is Cellular south. When I change web pages I see my phone downloading information. I'm pleased this is working. No need to tether, it's a little slow but it's free!

Re: Bridge Browser cannot open ANY website..But Phone Browser opens up all website...

I got the "not authorized to open" too, but then checked my RF signal on my Torch and realized that I turned it off the same time when I disabled the WiFi signal. Doh!

 

But that being said.  It connected to Google, takes frigging forever to link to the search page, then I gave up connecting to any sites with the search links. 

 

Phone Browser worked.  So it must be the blue tooth bridge slowing it down.
