My Browser doesn't work

I used to be able to select Browser and it would take me directly to the Internet. Now when I select Browser, It takes me to a "Services - Email Accounts" page and I am unable to access the Internet at all. What happened?

Re: My Browser doesn't work

First try reregistering the device by going into Options | Advanced Options | Host Routing Table. Find the bold entry, hit your menu key and select Register Now. See if you get a registration message in your Messages list. Afterwards try resetting the device by removing the battery for a minute.


If that doesn't work go into your Browser, hit the menu key and select Options. Go into General Properties. Try changing the Default Browser from BlackBerry Browser to Internet Browser (or vice versa). Then close and reopen the browser

Re: My Browser doesn't work

I tried your suggestions. The only one that worked was removing the battery. The other two options failed. But, by removing the battery I'm up and running again. Thank you.
