Angry 8900 wifi problem please help

Please Login to Remove!

Hi
I have an 8900 and i'm having real trouble turning on the wifi!!
I have already tried and failed with the following
battery resets
alt shift del resets
full wipe of blackberry
browser settings changed to hotspot
deleting all saved wifi ssid's

The wifi did turn on very breifly and found my network but not anymore.

I just get the wifi tick box which won't go green and if i search for a network then it say turn on wifi which i try and do, then it comes back with unable to turn on wifi!!

Please HELP!!

Are you still having trouble?

Sounds like you were using WiFi ok before this problem started? If so, and sounds like you ruled out everything else, I'm wondering if it's a hardware problem.

You say you wiped the device and re-installed the OS?

Do you have a BB data plan? lets confirm that before guessing any more.

And have you re-registered on the host routing table and resent the service books?
