I have just bought a 8320 titanium ( unlocked ) as a replacement to 8310, which I had lost while visiting Swan island dahliya farms on 1st October. Despite the efforts taken by the farm owners to locate it , my 8310 remains lost. I'm mentioning this with faintest hope that the finder of my phone goes thru a change of heart - on reading this post - and decides to return what does'nt belong to him / her.
I can be reached on 312-878-7622.

Regarding my new 8320....It easily found the wi-fi network service in my home. But I am not able to open the browser to surf.A message from T Mobile flashes, saying that since I am in an area where data communication does not exist, I cant browse on the web.

Is it not enough to just get connected to a wi-fi network, for emails/web browsing,etc? Is something more required-and if so, can someone tell me what it is?

You need to have a BlackBerry Data Plan active for that device in order to use the BlackBerry Browser.

Yup, it's different than with Android type devices.
