If you just picked up a new BlackBerry Bold 9930, you may be upset when you see that Verizon has made Bing the default search engine once again. Well don't fret -- unlike previous OS versions you can now easily make any search you want the default in the BlackBerry browser. To do so, follow these few simple steps.

  1. In the Browser, press the Menu key then choose Options
  2. Select Manage Search Engines
  3. Select New Search Engine
  4. In the Name field enter Google (or your search name of choice)
  5. In the Address field enter
  6. Save

Now click the new search to set it as the default and you're done. When you enter a search term in the navigation bar it will use Google (or whatever search you specified as the default) and you're all set! Thanks to everyone that sent this in!
