    I have connected to the wifi home network as explained. And the network name is displayed above, on the screen. But when I try to access the browser it says unable to connect to network. This becomes possible when I switch on the data services but that charges me. Tried rebooting the device but makes no difference. Pls help

    Legacy devices requires BIS for data traffic. I think you should just get a cheap used BB10 instead if that's all you want to do. I have several old device on wifi for youtube/bbm for my daughter.

    Is your phone locked or unlocked? And does it have a IT policy enable?
    I have a 9780 and now running a 9900 and have no problem accessing internet via wifi. Nor my other legacy BlackBerries. But they are unlocked, have no IT policy.

    I am not sure service book can also control wifi access. Could anyone who knows join in please?

    I just picked up a Bold 9780 and had no trouble connecting to my home wifi network. I selected the SSID and entered the password and poof! What I'm having trouble with is connecting to the Internet via cell signal.

    I was able to install Opera mini while on Wifi through the BB browser and now can use Opera for internet via 3G.
