Default No WIFI Options

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

My niece has an 8100 and has no set up options for WIFI, there are Mobile Network and Bluetooth options in the Manage Connections menu but nothing for WIFI.

Will updating her SW resolve this?

Cheers!

Unfortunately an OS upgrade won't add wifi capabilty for an 8100. The 8120 or 8130 are wifi capable, I believe.

8120 is.
Not the 8130 (those pesky CDMA carriers don't like WiFi)
