Default Using Internet on RIM Pearl

Please Login to Remove!

I have a B/B Pearl being used in India, and service provider does not support B/B services like email and others. Hence i m using my handset only to make/receive call, sms, etc. Can I Browse Internet at a Wi-fi Hot-Spot. If yes, wat settings do i have to do. I dont want the email service on the handset, i only want to browse the net thru my handset when it is in range of a wi-fi. Pl suggest

The 8100 does not have WiFi, so you can't do what you want to do.

There are other Indian service providers which provide BB data. However, as stated, your model doesn't have WiFi, so that will not be an issue whomever you use.

Please stay on topic.
The OP doesn't want to do any email.
