| | No connection to wifi on BB 9000 Bold 'anymore' (no green check)
Please Login to Remove!
I recently got a BB Bold 9000 and I was overjoyed. This is my first wifi phone and I was really looking forward to experience it.
In brief, the wifi on this phone worked for a whole day when I first got this. But on the second day, the wifi seems to connect but not access the internet. That is, I do get wifi in my network scans and I do get connected to it BUT 'there is no green check' in front of the wifi in the Network Connections.
Note that I do not have any data plans or GPRS on this network. I read on the forums that unless the Mobile network is connected to the BB enterprise servers, it cannot connect to Wifi.
-But then, how did my wifi work for two days when I never had any Data plans, nor any GPRS activated on this Mobile network at all. Also, it is an Unlocked phone.
I tried almost everything that are suggested on the forums, including 'battery pull' and manual/automated connections with the Router, with no luck.
1 - I do not have any DATA plans, but my wifi worked for some time then why is that? Is there a way to use wifi without having GPRS/DP enabled?
2 - I do not have a green check in front of the wifi, even though it is connected to the Router (the SSID is written in brackets with the wifi).
Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
