Hi All,

I'm not even sure if this is possible.. I got a BB 8520 and I don't have any Data Plan from my provider... but I would like to browse web when I connected to wireless network...

Can I do that? if yes, how?

thanks

Default frustrating

i switched my 8520 to hotspot browser and it's still saying i need to subscribe...is there no way to surf the web without a data plan on this model? on my 8320, i can pick up wifi throught the blackberry browser, but it looks like tmobile has only made a web2go option to do so. this is lame. any suggestions anyone?

Then you need to download opera mini to your pc and transfer to your BB with desktop manager
