    Hey everyone. I have a friend with an 8900, and she gave it to HER friend because she got 2 of them. Well, this friend had wifi working when she had the data plan, went CRAZY with it, and had to pay bundles of money. Silly her for not getting a good data plan :P anyways, now she canceled her data plan, and now states that she can't connect via wifi to her access point. The access point shows up, but there is no check mark next to it. Is there supposed to be a check mark next to the access point if you DON'T have a data connection? Kind of how like you get gprs if you have no data connect and then GPRS if you do have a data connect? or edge vs EDGE?

    If the WiFi logo is on (highlighted) it means she is connected if its greyed out, there's no connection

    The strange thing is, it's connected but not in white. It's greyed, but it connects to the access point. That's what's troubling me... It's greyed out, says the access point's name, and no green tick. On all my other blackberries (with data plans) there's a green tick no problem. Is it possible that the green tick represents connection to RIM's servers?

    First, do a battery pull on the device... second, unplug your wireless router.... if the Wifi symbol is greyed out it is NOT connected to your router.

    Does she have the wifi service book? I have heard that they only way to get them is to have a data plan, don't know for sure.

    Resend service books. If it doesn't work, the famous signature link.

    She doesn't have a data plan, as I said. I've also flashed her device and same thing. Greyed out but can browse the web via wifi, but no green tick mark.

    If you don't have a data plan then you are never going to get the green tick mark.
