Default Re: Bold 9000 cant access to internet even though connected to home wifi

My 9000 Bold's been driving me crazy till just now when I 'proved' an earlier statement on this thread.

At home in Oz, I can always connect to Wifi networks. But elsewhere it's been unpredictable. Here in Thailand, I have faced 'Failed to get an IP address' or some other excuse for not connecting my Wifi.

I followed a comment in here that some carriers require you to connect through BIS via their network BEFORE Wifi works. I just switched my Mobile Networks > Data off while roaming to 'ON' and immediately the greyed out Wifi icon went white.

Then the interesting thing is you can switch it back off once you have a connection - just did that too..

Another BB quirk fixed ... well till there is another issue!

I hope it helps a few folks..
