Web Browsers for the BlackBerry

One of the most versatile tools on your handheld is the web browser, but unfortunately not all handhelds have one. A browser is always installed on your handheld, but it requires a special activation to be seen and used. This activation can come from two places, so it's possible to have none, one, or even multiple browsers on your handheld.

The most common way a browser can be activated is from your carrier. Not all carriers offer browser service, but most do. If your browser is activated by your carrier, it will have a name that identifies it with your carrier. For instance, my BlackBerry 7280 has a “Cingular Browser” icon on the home screen.
