Question Uhm, since when does the 8310 have WiFi?

Please Login to Remove!

Weirdest thing... My 8310 (for the second time) asked me the following:

"The application Messages has requested a WiFi connection to

Don't ask again for
[ ] All WiFi connections
[ ] WiFi connections to"

Huh? Could this be some application (e.g., PocketDay) incorrectly asking for this? (CRS, I thought it might be PocketDay as you're one of the two applications that access Google - the other one being GoogleMaps.)

Anyone ever seen this, or did I just get a one-in-a-million way cool 8310 (or have I a trojan horse)? I don't see any application on the device called "Messages."

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 8100: BlackBerry8100/4.2.1 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

I don't know why it is stating that. I do know that the 8310 doesn't have Wi-Fi. You still have a way-cool device though.

i am guessing that the application is requesting permission blindly. It would make sense for the developer to have the same software on the 8300/8310/8320, as they are the same device without gps/wifil with gps no wifi; with wifi no gps

PocketDay only launches Google when you click search in the pocketday main screen. You would see the browser launch if pocketday did it.
