All other search providers removed: required to use bing

Miembro

Yesterday, all of the search providers that used to be available through the browser disappeared and bing is the only option. I hate bing. I no longer am able to search using Google, Dictionary.com, or Wikipedia from the "Go to..." page on my browser. This is a very poor decision by either RIM or VZW to take choice away from their users.  Here is a screenshot of what I'm talking about:

This is what it used to look like:

I am not the only one having this issue. There are threads about this issue here:

and here:

It appears that neither RIM or VZW are willing to admit doing this, but a large number of users are affected, and SOMEONE is pushing this change to Blackberry users without notification and without giving the option to refuse this change. If this has happened to you, please cal Verizon and inform them. I really want my choices for search back. Not only because I hate bing, but because taking choices away from customers is just a really **bleep** thing to do.
