Really Ness, you forgot how to do this? 😛 go into your browser, press the blackberry menu button, selection options, then switch it from hotspot to internet. If the option isn't there, you may need to do a backup and restore.

lol yes I can't believe I forgot but its been a while since I had to change it, My brother keeps breaking his phones and 'm forever hoarding cdma blackberrys when I can find them because he still lives in Thompson MB! I wish he would just move lol. and I have to do it all while trying to explain it to him over the phone because I don't actually have the phone with me!! I knew how to change the browser just couldn't remember what to do when you don't have the option to change it 😛 but its a brand new (refurbished phone) that I bought from the website.

If I remember correctly though there is no option to back up and restore. Just the security wipe??

I just checked with the head tech department. It's either you don't have the BB data(which I assume you do) or you need to reload the software. Desktop manager should have the option.

There is no way in hell I would ever be able to explain how to get and then use desktop manger to him there is a way to fix it from the phone I just don't remember how

You can try the security wipe. I can't guarantee that it'll work though.
