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.

SSID is the name of your Wi-Fi connection (aka "Home", "Linksys", etc...). The Playbook should display a list of Wi-Fi names you can choose from.

Unless the area you are residing has a free wi-fi you can avail the internet facility without paying for the service. However in most wifi centers you need to get a password to log on to the router except in restricted campus. so check this out .

What is wi fi whats does it do


Hi,

Wi-Fi stands for wireless fidelity. The term Wi-Fi, which is alternatively pushed by the Wi-Fi Alliance, a trade group that pioneered commercialization of the technology. Wi-Fi is mostly about connecting to the Internet without physically attaching your computer to anything. Mostly it's about using laptop computers.


A Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, mobile phone, MP3 player or personal digital assistant can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points — called a hotspot — can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. Coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage. Wi-Fi technology has been used in wireless mesh networks, for example, in London.

In addition to private use in homes and offices, Wi-Fi can provide public access at Wi-Fi hotspots provided either free-of-charge or to subscribers to various commercial services. Organizations and businesses - such as those running airports, hotels and restaurants - often provide free-use hotspots to attract or assist clients. Enthusiasts or authorities who wish to provide services or even to promote business in selected areas sometimes provide free Wi-Fi access.
Routers that incorporate a digital subscriber line modem or a cable modem and a Wi-Fi access point, often set up in homes and other premises, can provide Internet-access and internetworking to all devices connected (wirelessly or by cable) to them. One can also connect Wi-Fi devices in ad-hoc mode for client-to-client connections without a router. Wi-Fi also enables places that would traditionally not have network access to connect, for example bathrooms, kitchens and garden sheds.

Good luck and have a nice day.
rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Blackberry Bold use Wi-Fi network or mobile first


Yes, the Bold 9700 will use wi-fi in preference to the mobile network whenever both are available. I had one for a month, it was my primary means of internet access and I didn't get charged a penny for any data usage. I used it on both my home wireless network and in many public hotspots.

In any case, it's easy to check: the top of the screen will show the wi-fi logo in white when connected and greyed out when wi-fi is switched on but not connected.

I hope that this answers your question, if so then please take a moment to rate my reply. If not, then please add a comment and I shall expand upon my answer to suit your needs.

3. Scroll down and see “Set Up Wi-Fi Network”, click Next
4. And now click Scan For Networks.
On this step BlackBerry will scan all of the Wi-Fi around you. Find the Wi-Fi that you want it and save if needed.
5. If you know the SSID network, you can Manually Add Network. And now click theBlackBerry menu and click Connect.

7. The next step is fill the name for the Wi-Fi connection to save on Wi-Fi profie or you can just click to Connect. Click Next to continue..
8. The Menu will be back to Manage Connection. Check the Wi-Fi Options to set the UP address is it using DHCP (on BlackBerry it will said “Automatically obtain IP address and DNS”) or using static IP address. If using DHCP you can browsing to Internet but you must change the setting at the browser on the Main Menu -> Options -> Advance Options -> Browser.
