    Default How do I use the 'Default Web Browser' feature?

    Hi,

    My problem is with the feature "Default Web Browser" found in your application settings. [Settings>Phone>Application Settings>Default Web Browser]

    I have selected "Opera Mobile" to be my Default Web Browser.. Now in my understanding it should open all external web links i.e. links that come in emails etc etc with Opera Mobile, right?.. But when I click on links in my emails it opens them with the Phone's web browser.

    How do I get this to work?

    any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Yo, Denni. long time no see. Where have you been, mate?
    That's happened to me too. I think opera mobile can't defeat the power of native browser.

    hi there Bud,
    Yeah, it's been awhile hasn't it?.. Hope you're doing ok..

    Makes you wonder why it was put in there if it won't work... Should I dare write to Nokia asking them for a solution? :P

    I don't know mate. They always give us some polite answers and sometimes not helping. :P
    But, why not?

    I haven't tried this, but there are some options in advanced settings, that tell the phone what app to use . I believe you should set Opera Mobile everywhere and see how it goes.
