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.
- In the Browser, press the Menu key then choose Options
- Select Manage Search Engines
- Select New Search Engine
- In the Name field enter Google (or your search name of choice)
- In the Address field enter http://www.google.com/m/search?q=%s
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!
