    Well I have a 8310 and wanted to know about the following settings.
    Got to Options>Advance Options> Browser Push
    I have Enable push, Enable Wap Push, Allow wap push applications checked.
    Then I have a bunch of "Auto" and "allow all" in the three sections of Service load, Service indication, other messages.
    Do these settings automatically get set by service book or something by default?

    I'm not really sure, but here is what I found in the blackberry website:

    About browser push
    Browser push is designed to push information from a web application to your BlackBerry device as the information becomes available. For example, you can use browser push to receive updates for weather reports, stock quotes, or breaking news. When your device receives an update, a new browser push message might appear in a message list or, an icon on the Home screen or in the application list might change to indicate that new information is available. The web application might also push updated information to your browser cache without notifying you. If information is pushed to your browser cache, the information is available on your device even when your device is not connected to the wireless network.

    Your device supports different types of browser push messages. Service loading messages and service indication messages include updated information. Other browser push messages include messages that appear in your browser cache.

    Browser push options
    Process MDS:
    Set whether your BlackBerry device accepts browser push messages from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server or BlackBerry Internet Service.
    MDS Hosts:
    Set whether your device accepts push messages from all BlackBerry Enterprise Servers or BlackBerry Internet Services, or no BlackBerry Enterprise Servers or BlackBerry Internet Services.
    Process SMSC:
    Set whether your device accepts SMS-based browser push messages.
    SMSC Hosts:
    Set which SMSC hosts your device accepts browser push messages from. To accept browser push messages from a specific SMSC host, type the phone number for the SMSC host.
    Process IP:
    Set whether your device accepts browser push messages that web applications send through a WAP gateway.
    IP Hosts:
    Set which WAP gateways your device accepts browser push messages from. To accept browser push messages from a specific IP host, type the IP address for the WAP gateway.

    but I was wondering... If I no longer want Verizon Wireless to push applications to my homescreen, can I stop them simply by unchecking "Allow WAP Push Applications" found here (Options> Advanced Options> Browser Push) on my Storm?

    If that indeed does work, what else am I missing out on? Would I miss OTA update notifications as well? Not that I've ever needed them before, as I get all of my update news from CrackBerry.com . And as for the pushed apps, I generally just throw the icons into a custom folder on my homescreen and hide it.

    Does anyone know if that's what that setting controls? By its title it seems fairly obvious...I just don't want to mess up services that I am currently using.



    ...I guess I could just test it

    I am not surprised you never got an answer to your question. I can can speculate as to why.

    With my Storm 1 (9530) I've been trying to disable any kind of "push" yet I still get crap dumped to my screen. Yes I know I can put the crap in some random "crap" folder, and I may do that until I can get away from Blackberry or until RIM or Verizon fixes what I consider a problem.

    I disable all pushing by going to Options->Advanced Options->Browser Push and then unchecking the top box "Enable Push," and not just the MDS, WAP, and WAP applications boxes. By unchecking "Enable Push," that will be the only option visible in the Browser Push window.

    And no, none of the functions I depend on for my business have ceased to function correctly. The sad thing is, I still get random crap pushed to my home screen. It doesn't stop anything. It does appear to slow things down. I even go into Service Book and delete the crap when it appears. Looks like I will have to use the "Crap" folder method, but I am pissed.
