I won't be much help because wifi worked for me right off the bat and always has. But when someone here asks if you have a blackberry data plan, they mean a blackberry data plan, not just a regular data plan. You must contact your service provider to have the plan activated.

I don't know about the thing you are calling an indent. From what I'm familiar with, if you have a green checkmark, your connection is in place.

If you do not have a blackberry data plan, you will not have use of blackberry branded data applications. I'm not sure if you have the hotspot browser without a blackberry data plan or not. But open whatever browser you have and see if you can change to wifi or hotspot browser in browser confirguration options.

I have seen posts on the forum that explain the way the wifi icon changes based on connection status. I can't recall everything exactly, but I think it should be easy enough for you to find if you search or scan down through the posts.

Good luck. If you don't have a blackberry data plan, I recommend it.
