Can I get rid of browser as main button?

by XME

I just got the phone and really like it as I was upgrading from the VERY basic Nokia 1600. However, I hate that the browser is connected from the main screen as I have accidentally clicked the browser button more than once, and as soon as I do, I lose a whole minute. Is there a way to lock the browser on the 401g that I've not found, or remove the access from the main screen buttons?

Web browsing blows

I've had it for a while now, but I'm realizing I hate it. The back falls off thus the battery falls out.

Web browsing blows, if you don't mind only going to the sites they list on the browser. Looking on Myspace, there's no images, so you just have to guess which image you're setting as default. Downloading images from Yahoo or Google isn't good either, you just get a very small image. And unless you type really fast, you get charged a minute per minute you're online on your T401g.

Plus they lied, my box said it was 3 cents a txt msg, it's actually 5 cents.

So yeah, worst spent 80 bucks of my life. switching to T-Mobile Samsung T349 now.

I am annoyed by the browser key location too, but I was not able to find a way to switch it to something different.

Lock the Keypad to disable accidental browser launching ..

Just press and hold the * key ( lower left corner ) for a few seconds till you see the "Locked" message on screen. Now the keypad is locked and pressing the "Browser" soft key won't launch the browser.

XME,

Thanks for your questions. Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to do it. It is somewhat annoying because that same key has other functions for other tasks which can sometimes cause a mixup.

I think it did happen a couple of time when I first got the phone. After that, I learned to avoid it.

Regards.
