8900 wifi question
 
I have 3 8900's
2 are currently on data plans the third phone is new and not activated, if I put my sim card in from another phone ( sony erricson) the phone works ( can make and recieve calls) I have the unactivated phone connected to my wifi but when I try to browse the internet no data service...

To use the unactivated phone at home on my wifi do I still need a data plan tied to the sim card or am I just missing a setting for data connection?

I was under the impression that you didn't need to have a data plan just to use wifi. My info might be outdated though.

Did you check all your settings like selecting the correct browser (Options>Advanced>Browser)?

Does the wifi logo turn white or stay grayed out when you try to access a hotspot browser?

If its staying gray then you have the answer which i know you dont want
