Frustrated about wifi/data plan on this phone
Ok, so prior to upgrading to the 8520, I owned an 8320. I was able to surf the web via wifi, via blackberry browser.
I just received my new 8520 and am extremely frustrated with thte fact that I don't have a blackberry browser option and tmobile has only made web2go available, which requires me to purchase a data plan from them.
I just want to surf the web when i'm in wifi areas. I tried configuring it to "hotspot" instead of web2go, it did nothing. I keep getting a page asking me to subscribe to the data plan service. I don't want tp hear people telling me oh how cheap a data plan is and oh how I should just get one because blah blah blah. No. When there is an open wifi connection, I should be able to use it with my wifi enabled phone without having to pay an extra $20-$40/mo.
So if there is a way to bypass this data plan block, please let me know.
You didn't need to post a new thread.
I've answered this in the other thread
didn't see ya there midnight raven....thanks, i'm gonna try the opera mini suggestion...i hope it works then
opera mini does not support the 8520 series
it WILL work, they just havent updated their supported list.
It doesnt list the Bold (i think) and it works on that.
I have both Opera Mini and Bolt browsers on my phone and i find the Bolt browser the easiest and quickest. Still holding out for Skyfire whenever that comes out...
Might also be worth a go to update the OS version on your device - i had a few niggles with Wi-Fi when i first switched it on yet after a software update all is well!
