Default Can someone help me with BB WiFi!?!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi! I just got the BB curve 8320 with AT&T w/o a data package. I tried using the directions from this website for setting up the WiFi but under manage connections I do not see an option for turning on WiFi (I only have Mobile network and Bluetooth). I was wondering if anyone knows how I can fix this problem since I know this phone has WiFi capability. Do you think it might just be an AT&T thing? Thanks for the help!

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry Curve 8900)

Go to Options > About and see what the first line says. It is odd that you don't have the Wi-Fi option.

Came across a similar issue in another thread (see post #17): Confused about WiFi, is it really free to use?

Might try giving your carrier a call and asking them why you don't have wifi access. Didn't think you should have to get a data plan just to get wifi though.

Without a BB data plan you may not receive the Service Books enabling WiFi access.
