I want to distribute a URL to our workforce that carries Black Berry curves.  Is there a way using BES that a URL can go into the Curves as an icon (you can do this with iPhone or iPad) or perhaps you could send a bookmark to each Curve?  Thanks!

I think configuring a policy for browser homepage will force it to show your web page.

Hi,

You'd need to either create an application to create the shortcut and then distribute that via the BES or use Browser Channel Push:

The following links should help:

An alternative, would be to create a dedicated web page that is set as the homepage on each BlackBerry (the above IT policy would be used to do that). Then you can modify the web page to include links to URLs and this can change dynamically as you need to add or remove URLs?
