    New to the Wi-fi thing with BB.

    Will BBM work over Wi-Fi?

    I haven't tried it yet but I don't think that it will. I could be wrong though.

    Yes it does work. Your still going to connect to the BBM servers just using a different channel (wifi) instead of BIS.

    Me too, however, I am able to browse the internet while I turn off the mobile network. Is this the way it is supposed to be? I imagined it lighting up and having a green check mark? I just have a white dash?

    per the instruction book white wifi logo and wifi name says will be able to send and receive email messages and use the browser over a wi-fi connection.
    gray wifi and wifi name says your smartphone is connected to wi-fi network but does not have access to blackberry servers over wi-fi connection

    Right....but it doesn't tell you how to get the solid white symbol. I called at noon today when I noticed the issue. Verizon had no idea I was talking about, I refrenced him to pg 35 of the tips and tricks booklet. They transferee me to RIM who claimed that it was a UMA issue he also said the literature is generic (when I told him what the book said) Apparently that's not accurate and no one can get a straight answer.

    this is what that verizon launch flyer says"Make your coverage even bigger by using Wi-Fi to connect to your home or wireless networks or hotspots. In Wi-Fi coverage you can surf the net, send that presentation and snap and send a photo without getting off the phone." so that leads me to believe they didnt lock down wifi, they have a ton of other phones with wifi and they all work flawlessly. this has to be software issue.
