    When I bring up the browser, it goes to vision.sprintpcs.com, no matter what I set the home page to. (And the home page setting does show what I have changed it to.) Are others seeing this, and is there some way around it?

    Had the same issue....here's how I fixed it.

    While in the browser, on that sprint page hit menu button. Then select New Window. I then went to Google.com in the new window. Hit menu, then More, then Settings. Scroll down to Set Home Page, select. Then Click Use Current Page, then OK and back out of menu.

    Now...back on the window showing Google, hit Menu, then Windows option. It will show both Windows currently open. Click the minus sign next to the Sprint Window to remove that window. Now you exit out of the browser...and when you launch again Google will be your home page. (or whatever you chose)

    Not obvious, but definitely does the trick! Thanks!

    Strange, I just set it on the browser settings. After a reboot, it worked.
