    Hi from the UK and an Orange customer. I am sick of the Orange setting to go to one of their (O2 mobile internet only) web page for when I start the default browser

    How can I change this? I tried homepage for google and 'home' goes to google but just starting the prog from the icon/widget still tries (and fails when on WiFi) to go to orange

    thoughts? ta m

    The desktop icon and probably apps is a shortcut to the Orange site.

    Simply re add using the + next to phone and widgets>program>internet

    once the internet browser is open, click the menu button and find the option to set the homepage, then enter the address for the site you want.

    If you open subsequent browser windows they do open on the specified home page, however you are correct in what you say. Each time the Internet icon is pressed the browser does not open on the home page but on the last page visited instead.

    The only solution I can think of is to create a Bookmark out of your desired home page and then create a Shortcut to that Bookmark on your home screen. So each time you want to go online click the Shortcut instead of the Internet icon.

    Yes the orange browser icon is simply a shortcut. Remove it and use the HTC "internet" from the add widgets
