Verizon just sent me a new phone because of a speaker issue with my other phone. I have set my phone up and it will not open browser links or addresses such as Amazon, eBay, Facebook, etc with the external app. I have verified that the phone is set to do that. I have tried multiple browsers as well with the open in external app setting on. Phone has been updated with no success. WebView has been updated and uninstalled and reinstalled. Wiped partition cache. Reset app preferences. Reset the phone multiple times to factory settings. Booted the phone in safe mode and it still would not open links or even give the pop up to ask if I wanted to use the app. I am completed stumped. I have even downloaded a few apps that are supposed to correct this problem such as open link with and still no success. Any help would be appreciated.
