It took me about 5 hours of talking to AT&T support and playing around with the settings to get wifi to work without a BB data plan. Now it works, but the connection is unstable, I have to reload a page 3 times before it goes through. Anyone have any ideas? Anyone having this same problem? :?

BB 8820
AT&T
v4.2.2.169

I have the BB plan but my WiFi works very well everywhere I use it. Way faster than EDGE

I have an 8820 that is not even in service yet, without a sim card in, and Wi-Fi works like a charm. I also have a friend that has 2 8820's and both of em work like a charm as well.

You must have some hardware problems with the device.

Try updating it to the latest OS; 4.2.2.175. It's at the top of the 8800 forum.

i have newest linksys. (problems linking 8820 to older linksys router were resolved via firmware upgrade.) i lose blue Wi-Fi (changes to grey) 2 (or sometimes 3) houses down the street
