    How do I get my BB to access the internet through my network and not just Wi-Fi?

    Thanks.

    What error do you get when you switch WIFI to off and then try your browser?

    I got this mesage. "This is a wi-fi service. Please ensure your device has an active Wi-Fi connection and try again."

    Hotspot Browswer is the only option in there.

    OK sorry then this one is beyond me and hopefully the experts can chime in.

    Now stupid question of the day ... do you have a data plan?

    Not sure where that version came from. I am not familiar with that one. Current version is 4.6.1.204(316)

    I'm guessing it is a carrier specific version. For instance .204 is not the current release for Telus.

    Try resending your service books.
