I'm using a 8900 Javelin in Indonesia on the Telkomsel (Kartu HALO) network and have a problem with the Browser. I bought the phone from T-Mobile when I was in the United States by the way and have successfully unlocked it. When I try to use it to surf the net, it says "This is a Wi-FI service. Please ensure your device has an active Wi-Fi connection and try again."
This happened as I returned back to Jakarta from Singapore and this is the first time I ever changed the SIM card in my BlackBerry. Previously, I never had a problem in using the Browser.
The problem is not Internet connection as I can use the BlackBerry Messenger and log-in to Windows Live Messenger with no problem. I cannot use the Gmail or Facebook applications though. (Those 2 apps are not important, let's focus on the Browser issue here please
I asked around my friends and they told me to go to
===== Browser --> Options --> Browser configuration --> Browser and change it to Telkomsel (The service provider)
BUT, the problem is, there is only "Hotspot Browser"
under that Browser field. Also when I first open the Browser and hit the Menu/BB button, there is a "Start BB connection"
option but when I choose that, nothing happened and the option is still there the next time I hit the Menu button again.
I've tried restarting the phone by taking the battery off. I've also tried taking the SIM card off and putting it again but none seem to work. Can anyone please help me here? Thank you very much!
