Default WiFi not working on Unlocked BB

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys,

I recently got Perl 8120 from Rogers. When I put Rogers sim card my wifi works.
Then I got unlock code and it is accepted.

recently I went to india. I put SIM from indian phone company and phone works just fine. I am able to make and receive phone calls without any problem. However with that SIM card I am not able to use wifi on my home network in india. I don't know what SIM card has to do with wifi but when I put rogers SIM card and be on roaming in india my wifi works but when I put some other sim card, i can make and receive calls but can't use wifi.

Is there any other unlocking i need to do for wifi?

That is really weird. Unlocking shouldn't affect wifi as the two things are unrelated. When you have your India SIM card in your device can you connect to a wifi network if you turn off the Mobile Network and just have wifi running?
