    Curve wifi help

    Advertisement



    Hey all. I gave my gf my bb curve 8320 and she doesn't have a data plan. However the tmobile rep said she'd be able to use wifi and uma, but when she connects to her home wifi and she gives the browser a go, it says she needs a subscription or something. What gives?

    The phone is an 8320 running on 4.5.0.110 with tmobile

    Thanks.

    She should be able to do that. Post exactly what she gets when she tries the browser.

    Make sure on options>mobile network, she has "wi-fi preferred" and under network selection she chooses "automatic." I assume the wi-fi set up goes OK.

    Also, under Options>Advanced Options>browser select "hotspot browser."

    I can vouch for being able to surf over wifi. We just got a new router and set up my old 8320 (no sim) and backup 8320 (prepaid sim) and both were able to surf.

    I was having the same issue as WhitePearlPXL and I couldnt get onto my home network. I followed Jblackfish's instructions and I am on now. Thank you very much for that helpful hint.
