    Hi! Looking to restrict internet access on my Pre, but still enjoy the e-mail functionality. Is there any way to do that? I thought I saw something about a Homebrew patch, but can't seem to locate it.

    Thanks!

    You can download Advanced Config for App Launcher and hide the Web app

    what he means is that first you need to install preware ...,
    Goto http://instal.preware.org for instructions how to install preware.. Than all you need is something called a "Patch".
    To get this "Patch".. After installing preware.. Start it up and do a search for Advanced Config by going to the List Everything tab and typing Advanced Config tap on the patch, tap install... And when it's finished restart the phone...
    You will now hoave a new set to hide the web icon...

    However I'm not sure
    Will Hiding the webapp disble universal search?

    No, you can still find it by searching "web"...but I don't think you can completely remove this app...except if you delete the folder in /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.browser

    Default mode- Connection Settings
    Phone -enabled
    Data- enabled
    Wifi - enabled
    Mode configuration: Auto Start and Auto Close= Immediate
    Settings
    Behaviour- Notify
    On Charger- Default
    Connections
    PHone- Enabled
    Data- Disabled
    Wifi-Disabled
    Triggers
    Application Trigger
    Application state on Foreground
    Application- Web
    Delay-60 seconds

    why don't you just not use it?

    I think maybe what they want to do is be able to still use their email but have their data off? So not sure if simply hiding the icon is what they're after?
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    The directions I gave disable the web but still give you access to email.
