hi im just wondering if you need a data plan to use the internet over ... BlackBerry Pearl forum
do you need data plan to use wifi?
hi im just wondering if you need a data plan to use the internet over a wifi connection? because when i click on the browser it takes me to tmobile homepage and when i type in an address it takes me too a page that says im not currently subscribed to any webtogo plans...any ideas? and at the top where it has the signal strength it says uma in capital letters and wifi underneath which is black and white which i assume means im connected to my wifi network ...
You should be able to use the browser on a wifi connection without a data plan ( I have done it without even a SIM card)
Try this. Start the Browser then hit Menu, General Properties, and set your default browser to Hotspot Browser and see if that helps...
THANKYOU ....solved my problem...makes me love my flipberry that much more now

My 8220 will get here Monday, so I'll be able to start with ONE thing figured out!
Also can use BeeJive the IM client strictly on wifi w/o SIM card or data plan. I have a 8120 laying around and it works.
