Default T-Mobile 8320 Wi-Fi without data plan??

Please Login to Remove!

I got a 8320 from Tmobile. The main reason I upgraded to the 8320 was so I could get Internet without the data plan using wifi. I have my home wifi set up and it is showing as connected but when I go to the browser it says I cannot connect to the internet without a data plan. Is this true? My friend has the Blackberry flip and he gets internet through wifi w/out a data plan so I thought it would work. Please help if you can.

I also have a 8320 and didn't have a data plan during the first year when I had the device. Unless there's some new rule in place at Tmobile, you should be able to browse over wifi without having to get a data plan.

Check your service books to make sure you have the 2 for wifi. Also check your browser under Options>Advanced>Browser to make sure you have selected the correct one.

make sure your default browser is hotspot and not tzones
that was my issue before
and do a battery pull
if that doesnt work, dial 611, they will set you up
