    When bridged I found both browsers work. I know only the bridge browser works with my 9930's email. Are they using my data differntly, or is the stock browser tethering? Just curious what others may have discovered.

    Initially, when the pb launched the "regular" browser only worked on wifi. One of the OS updates opened Bridge, meaning, phone's access to data to other apps like the regular browser and some other apps (I think poynt and others). It seemed to have blurred the original distinction between browsers. So if you do not have wifi, both browers will use your phone's 3g and your data allowance.

    (hey, folks, does Bing work on bridge now?)

    Luckily I have unlimited data. thanks for the input. I could have sworn when I first installed Bridge it wouldn't allow the stock browser to connect. Someone must have flipped a switch, fine with me.

    If you are tied to your company's intranet through BES, then Bridge Browser may go through that connection to grab internet/intranet. I suspect it is dependant on how your sys admins configure BES.

    Since tethering became standard, I've found that most of the time when tethered and I click a link, it grabs the standard browser (and therefore grabs internet directly from Sprint). Occasionally it grabs Bridge Browser, but I always have the option of opening Bridge Browser directly (which then ALWAYS tunnels through BlackBerry/Company Intranet/Internet).

    Since my company blocks sites such as youtube,.twitter, and fb, I do have to be selective when choosing which browser to flip on when thethered.

    I have noticed that my on my 6mbit DSL line I get about half the speed as soon as I turn on Bridge. That is with using either browser. As soon as I disconnect Bridge, I'm back to normal speed. Why is that?

    Bing is working great! No lag and getting a lot back. It appears to work as well if not a little better than google.

    Sorry. I guess I was mistaken. I guess I saved a bookmark or the page that said thank you for downloading instead of the browser.

    And thank you so much for making fun of me.
