Question wifi network

Please Login to Remove!

Hey
I have a social plan so I do not have access to internet other then using a wifi network. My bb is hooked up to my router at home so I can use the wifi that way. When ever I go to connect to my internet at home a msg pops up saying "failed to associate with network". Without wifi i can not use the bb app world :(
Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?
p.s. phone has connected to home's wifi twice but other then that i cant get it to work!

Phone: bb bold 9780
Carrier: Telus

You cannot use app world without a true BB data plan, not the social plan AFAIK,

And the WiFi issue is probably also related tot he fact that you do not have a true BB data plan. Some carriers will not push the WiFi service book unless you have the proper data plan. You should call your carrier and ask,

The Chief Bottle Washer is ( always) correct. The carrier just found you first.

I think your friend is getting by somehow or he/she had a full BB dataplan in the past before converting to the Social Plan, which left the WiFi service books in place.

Telus Social plans give you Social media only - i.e. Facebook, Twitter, BBM and Windows Messenger. No email. No browser. No App World. No other connection to RIM services.

Social plans on various networks allow for WiFi only connection to App World. Bell Plans have no internet, but allow BBM/Twitter/FaceBook (Network/WiFi), but will only allow her(one of my co-workers) to access App World on WiFi, which tbh is quite annoying..LoL

Have you tried deleting the saved network on your BlackBerry? Then manually adding it again? Have you tried to reset your router?
