| | 8820 Wi-Fi access help
Please Login to Remove!
I am a new owner of a model 8820, unlocked & version 188.8.131.52. My service is T-Mobile, Pay as You Go plan. No data plan.
I have a problem with some apps and web access. I have the BB set up correctly for Wi-Fi. Some apps like The Weather Channel access data just fine. Iím not sure how it gets data as it works in areas with no Wi-Fi coverage.
Other apps like CNN will not work. Most apps seem to require the data plan. I understand that but why canít Wi-Fi be the default for data access? Simply put, if there is no Wi-Fi, I donít need the data.
I also canít seem to get GPS to function on this BB. I have an external Bluetooth GPS unit that pairs up fine. However, the apps cannot connect when requested.
What am I missing here? My settings Ďseemí to check okay but there must be more. Any helpful ideas?
