How to change the default browser on your BlackBerry



“How do you change the default browser from the blackberry one to a 3rd party browser app?”

The short answer is: you can’t. This is one functionality I wish existed with the Blackberry OS. It would be nice to fire up your favorite Browser when clicking a link from within an email, text or other 3rd party application. There are other browsers out there that I think blow the native Blackberry browser out of the water in terms of function such as Bolt and Opera Mini but unfortunately RIM hasn’t given us the option to change this as of yet! RIM are you listening?

Thanks for the questions Ryan!
