Blackberry 9000 Wifi

Hey man, read this post trying to figure out if i could use the browser on the bold without a data plan and here is how you answered someone.

"You can use the phone and browse the web using the Wi-Fi browser, butthe BlackBerry push e-mail won't work without a BlackBerry data plan.You could just use the W-Fi web browser to actually go to the e-mailweb site and check it that way, but without a BlackBerry data plan youdon't get e-mail or BlackBerry Messenger."

I removed my data plan and turned on wifi and changed the browser settings to hotspot browser and it says connected to my hotspots, but i am still not able to browse the web. Can you email me or explain why this may be? Is there anything I need to do?

SOURCE: can't use wi-fi without data plan? on blackberry

you can surf the net on a wifi network even of you dont have a data plan. turn the wifi on then select "set up wifi network" then just follow the instructions to be able to connect to the network. if you still can't after doing this, it might be because the signal of the network is not that strong.
regarding the bluetooth, go to media, then press the menu button (the bb logo), then select "receive via bluetooth" for your bb to receive the file from your laptop/other phones.

You need to unlock your blackberry network using blackberry bold 9000 unlock code for at&t network. That blackberry unlock code can be obtained from at&t network provider or third party sites, both of them will charge you but third party sites offering more competitive price and quick delivery service. After your blackberry unlocked, you can use your cable&wireless sim card on your phone.

May I recommend you check the version of firmware that your BlackBerry Bold 9700 is running?

Every release of system software works out bugs and 'funny' behavior, so you may find reflashing it will solve your wifi and data transfer problems.

The latest version is available through here.

Just bought a blackberry today and it wont let me on the internet, it says something about Wi-Fi connection. What do i do?


BlackBerries have different browsing profiles. Most likely your default is set to WiFi or HotSpot browser. Also, if you don't have a data plan with your carrier that might explain it. Without a data plan these phones can only connect through WiFi. Try going into the browser, selecting options and making sure that the default browser is Internet Browser.
