Default The internet browser on my storm is not working.

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all
I brought my first storm friday, now i`m on a contract so get basically unlimited internet usage,and i was using the internet browser friday,and it was working perfectly,but i tried it yesturday and no joy, it won`t load up the pages, today after fiddling around with the options it`s been a bit better,it displayed search result from google lol.But when i tried the link to what i was looking at, i got nothing just a blank screen saying loading.
Now could this be because it`s the weekend and loads of people are using it that it`s so slow or whatever, or is it just plain not working or am i doing something wrong?

Also people say that the storm hasn`t got wi-fi but what`s the wi-fi upgrade in the options?i was watching a video about how to upgrade the firmware yesturday and the bloke said that you have to use the wi-fi thingy, but if it ain`t got wi-fi how can it work?


Cheers

Carl

Carl,
Who is your provider? Do you have a BlackBerry data plan? Have you pulled the battery?

Thanks for the reply dc/dc,

It`s all sorted now, it`s because i didn`t have the blackberry sign on the storm,next to the 3G symbol.The bloke said to just do a battery reset, he said to take the battey and sim card out, then insert again and it`s been working since 10ish today, it stopped working once though after he sorted it but ever since i did the battery reset myself it`s been fine:-D

Excellent. A battery pull will clear a lot of issues on BlackBerry.
