    AT&T and Wi-fi?

    Advertisement



    I just bought an 8820 off ebay because I wanted internet access so I figured buy a phone with wifi and avoid having to pay for a data plan. Well the wi-fi worked for the first 48 hrs I had the phone and now it isn't working any longer. Is this because At&t had it disabled on my phone? can they even do that? Because when I searched wi-fi issues here I found that AT&T recently said that you have to have a data plan to get wi-fi? Or am I just having problems with the wi-fi connection?

    Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated,

    Problem Fixed

    Was simply a setting error. Just fixed it.

    I'm sure you will all be hearing from me again sometime mostly because my love of technology is greater than my comprehension of it.

    I seem to share your technology love and comprehension issue as well.

    make sure your data services on your BB are turn off and see if it still works. From my experience wifi without a data plan was impossible,

    go to manage connections>mobile network options. turn off data services

    if it doesn't work with data services off that means your were getting charged per Kb
