    Hello

    As a newbie to Blackberry's I recently purchased an 8820. Perhaps someone could advise me on connecting to my router wi fi without a data plan please. The 8820 can find the wi fi signal okay under manage connections/set up wi fi/scan for networks.
    I have downloaded Opera mini and I think it is installed - it then spent 15 minutes checking for fonts !! I have checked my settings but assume I have missed something. Have tried clicking Opera which then opens but nothing happens.
    Thank you for any advice.

    Options / Advanced Options / Browser. Set the Default Browser to HotSpot.

    It will work correctly with the HotSpot Browser, but you can not use the Internet Browser without a BIS service plan.
