    Hi guys
    Just a quick question. Wondering if there is any setting in the Blackberry Bold 9000 to enable me to use the Wifi/Edge/edge/GPRS over the WAP for streaming videos?

    I just got my bill for the previous month and noticed that they are charging me for some browsing data that i can identify as streaming videos from youtube over the video player.

    Anyway to get that to happen over the Blackberry services (which are a monthly unlimited thing for me at a fixed cost)

    Thanks in advance

    Go to Main menu - manage connections - select wifi and create a profile for your wifi. once profile is created. Go to your browser and switch browser to Blackberry browser. Please do not use WAP or Internet browser *** this is chargeable. For browsing using WIFI go to Browser - Press menu key - options - general settings- browser - Hotspot/ blackberry browser. Then enjoy as data comes from the Wifi network even though there will be EDGE / GPRS / 3G as your network.

    Hi Sidharth
    That i have already done man. What i am curious about is that for streaming videos directly from youtube or something, its using the bandwidth from the WAP browser. Atleast thats what it seems like when I checked my bill for the month out.

    There's goto be a way to override the settings and make sure that the "streaming videos" from various websites that automatically open with the video player stream using the EDGE/edge/GPRS network as opposed to the WAP network.

    Anyone know how to get that to happen?

    Bump for some attention.
    Just curious is there is anyway that I can automatically disable to phone from accessing WAP data cause i am being charged additionally for that.

    Why wont it use the EDGE/GPRS network for the streaming videos from Youtube?

    for me, i have the browser set to prompt me before switching to wap for streaming media. under the general properties of the browser options.

    Why not just use an app like "Vision for Youtube" it seems to work fine for me with no additional charges...
