Data and Wi-fi problems
I know there are very similar questions already about this subject, but there doesnt seem to be any which answer my question specifically.
I have recently bought a blackberry 8900 on O2. With the contract, I have got unlimited data and emails etc, however I'm going traveling (Asia and Australia, not EU) and am aware that the free data only applies to the UK. Because a lot of the hotels and hostels I will be staying in have free wi-fi, I was hoping to take advantage of this. In other threads I know whats been mentioned before is to turn off the "Data services" in the mobile network options to stop data being used, and then to simply turn on the wi-fi, however when I turn the data services to off, then the wi-fi goes to grey straight away.
Has anybody else had this problem, and knows how to fix it?
Thanks in advance,
try doing it the other way around.
make sure its white, and then turn off data services.
As soon as I switch the data services back to off, the wifi sybol goes from white to being greyed out, however I can use wi-fi if I turn the mobile network off. I suppose I could get round it this way, but I'd like to be able to make/receive calls and sms.
Ah yes, now I remember that was the only way someone posting here mentioned they could do it.
you basically have to connect wi-fi with data services on and then uncheck mobile netowrk connection.
wi-fi will remain white and download emails.
its the only way around it, and isnt too big of a problem, just do that when you need emails etc and then go back.
u need the wifi service book. so the data services have to be on.
The work around is as mentioned above.
Else u could switch to the Unlimited data roaming which costs roughly about £25 for a month and then switch it back to the Free Unlimited UK data plan when you come back. At least that will ensure peace of mind and + when you travelling you would want to enjoy and not keep hastling with your phone. Think that £25 quid/month is not a high price to pay for peace of mind. Happy travels!
Ah ok, thats great, thanks for the help everyone!
