    NEED HELP ON 8520 WIFI-

    I recently purchased 8520 and got struck with wifi issue!
    I have added home wifi profile and I can even see it displayed on the top of my homescree whenever I toggle wifi on. But the problem is that 'when I switch off the data services, browser does not work with the connected wifi profile'. It displays "Connection failed. Please try again later. If this problem persists, contact your service provider."

    I have tried changing the browser option to hotspot browser but I can never get internet using wifi. I get a clean internet whenever I use if with DATA SERVICES ON!

    Please help me if anyone had the same problem and found a solution or if anyone have any idea how to solve it!

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to have the Data Services set to ON if you want to use data over WiFi (or over the carrier network).

    If you set it to OFF, then data will be ... well ... OFF.

    Glad to hear a reply. But once I switch the data services on, mobile uses the network provided by the network provider and not by means of wifi and so I get charged for amount of internet used.

    So is it essential to have a data plan by the service provider to access internet? What is the use of having wifi then?! :O

    Once connected to WiFi, then device will use that by default.

    And yes, you need to have a data plan access the internet even over WiFi. The point of having WiFi is not to circumvent having a data plan but rather to give you access where you might not get a good carrier signal and also to allow you to use data features without using your data allowance.

    Do you have an active BLACKBERRY Data Plan?
