Default no WIFI on my connections !!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone,
I've just purchased a T-Mobile 8900 from a friend, but I noticed there's no 'wifi' selection in the 'Manage Connections' !

I loaded 2 different firmwares, and a third 5.0 one also, but still can't get the 'wifi' listed in 'Manage Connections' !

It shows 'Services Status'
then
'Set Up Bluetooth'

while it should show 'Set Up Wi-Fi Network' between the above 2 choices !

Any ideas ?

Thanks.
