Can't access Hotspot Browser on Bold 9900

I recently purchased a Bold 9900 . Unlike my older 8520 , this phone doesnt have an option to chose between Hotspot browser and Internet Browser . I followed 'options>device>advanced system settings>browser push' and there is no icon for Browser . Then I did some R&D on net and found out that OS 7.0.0.261 does not have this feature . Instead it switches to Hotspot or Internet browser on its own depending upon which kind of service you are using ie be it Wi-fi or BIS . I just want to know that is this thing about OS 7.0.0.261 true or there is something wrong with my phone . And if something is wrong , what can I do to correct it ? Pease reply someone...........!!!!!!!

What you read is true.

 

Newer BlackBerry phones will choose the browser type for you based on how you're accessing the data.

Hello RishSha

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums

 

 

Your R&D is somewhat correct Smiley Happy

 

 

On previous OS like OS5 and earlier you have the options to choose Hotspot Browser or Internet Browser , But on BlackBerry having OS 6 or  7  do not have the option to change the Default Browser .  The browser will automatically select  the type of connection is available . If you're connected to a wifi then your device browser will choose the wifi as prefered connection.

 

So nothing to worry about that Smiley Happy

 

Cheers !
