    not 100% sure about this, but worth a try. Open your browser, hit function, go to options, browser configuration, change the internet browser to Hotspot Browser.

    if you are comfortable with it, it might help if you wipe the bb software on it with one of the latest one linked on the forum. and then go from there

    you need to resend service books somehow. Or somehow install opera mini on to your bb to surf the web.

    Had the same problem. Could connect to wifi but not the internet. got Opera Mini and was able to use the internet. As has been said the BB browser is looking Download it to your computer and use DM to install.
