    Call your carrier and update your account details with the new device information, the IMEI and PIN.

    I thought I did that. I'm getting my e-mail alright and I downloaded the yahoo program for checking my fantasy football, but there use to be an icon for the browser and the new phone doesn't have it.

    Have them resend the service books then and do a battery pull.

    Open your DM connect your BB
    goto add/remove applications and see if the Browser is installed.

    There might be something else to do with it on an 8830 but i do not know.

    Thanks for the help.

    I opened the DM, but it's not in there. All my other apps transferred over from my old phone. Is there a good browser that I can download?

    Something doesn't sound right here. The browser app is not something that is an easy thing to remove. Usually if there is no browser, it's a provisioning issue that enables it. The browser is a core app of the OS. It is not something the factory would leave it.

    Sunkast is right, even when loading and removing apps the browser is greyed out with a check in the box.

    You could try Operamini, it is the only other BB browser


    and use the DM to load it, i hope this works.

    ALSO please make sure that in your menu ALL ICONS ARE SHOWN
    some icons are default hidden.
    for me its the BB symbol, then the BB symbol again and SHOW ALL

    it might be there and i dont know why i didnt think of that first
