Google, Yahoo, Bing and AOL creep me out. I want to use duckduckgo, yippy or starpage as my searchbar default search engine. Does anybody know how to do this. Can a blackberry rep explain why this very basic functionality is not included in the browser or is not well documented? I chose blackberry for security, the major search sites can't be trusted, too much tracking. NO, making starpage my homepage is not a solution just in case someone thinks to suggest this.

Oh how smug and utterly naive your reply is. Why do I need proof, when a healthy level of scepticism and suspicion should suffice. This is basic functionality and there is no reason it should be disabled or removed. The fact that these are the only offered search engines further causes my hackles to rise. Google, Bing, Yahoo and AOL don't advertise that their mandate is not to snoop, but Startpage, DuckDuckgo and Yippy do make this a principle tenet of their services. They make these claims because unlike you they recognize that one "should" be interested in keeping their data secure. I buy blackberry products specifically for data security reasons, blackberry advertises this as one of their strengts. But, if you require proof and are incapable of reasoning this one out for yourself I'll provide you with these links. Perhaps you'll have enough curiosity and insight to catch the tenor of the conversations.
I'm sorry but this really should be obvious. Apologies in advance if my response seems a bit overly strident (I don't think there were any exclamation points). It's just that your reply was not very helpful and seemed rather dismissive.
