    Default Bing only available search engine

    Today I noticed in the default browser the only available search engine I have is Bing. No google. No wikipedia. No anything but Bing.

    Does anyone know why this happened, or how I can get google & wikipedia back, and get rid of bing?

    wow I just noticed that too. I remember that RIM signed a deal with Bing for search but that sucks quite frankly. I dont like bing for search.

    I still have Google, Live Search, Wikipedia and Dictionary.com in my browser. I did noticed that Verizon pushed a Bing icon to my phone sometime on Sunday.

    Hmm, maybe because your on BES? That could be. I've had the Bing Icon ever since launch though...

    can you snap a pic showing all of those as an option with a screen capture app. I want to see it so I can try to find out why mine only has bing now and go back to having google but I dont want to waste my time and do you both have the os upgrade

    I am down to only BING...... Highly frustrating.... used the direct search to wikipedia quite a bit. (Helped me win trivia night)
    I understand wanting to get the bing name out there, but dont take away the other options... thats just a giant middle finger to a bunch of us

    This frustrates the heck out of me. On the phone with VZW right now. The rep is telling me that she can choose search options from her non-Storm phone, so she's off to get a Storm to find out what the deal is. Will post results. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..

    Default Bing used to be an option

    I got the Bing icon with my new Storm2 as well and I downloaded it for the simple reason that it had voice search (which sucks, really). But it was an OPTION, not the default search engine nor the ONLY search engine short of actually navigating to google.com!

    Any of you on a BES? If so what search options do you have? I was considering installing 5.0.0.428 tonight.

    How do I do a screen shot? I have not installed the OS upgrade, still running the OS that came with the phone.

    I am not on BES. I upgraded last night, but even before that I never noticed it searching through Bing. I use it quite a bit too, but never use the options to search through something else. I love Google. I have actually installed the Bing app because of their search by voice feature, I hate Bing though, so I have never really used it at all. Just played with it to see how it worked when I first installed it.

    You first need a screen capture app, I use Quicklaunch. And then follow this thread.
